The Fenway and Kenmore Square area is a great home base for any trip to Boston especially one that involves a visit to Fenway Park. There are many choices within walking distance. Here are some family friendly choices:
Residence Inn Fenway
The family will love this hotel for its location (5 minute walk to the park) and also for the extremely family friendly room layouts. Each room has a small kitchenette area and a couch with a pull-out bed. Breakfast is included with all room rates, and the breakfast eating area is large, comfortable, and lovely. From the top floor outdoor patio (just beyond the indoor pool), your family will have views of Fenway in the distance plus the iconic Citgo sign. You’ll also find lots of dining and shopping options just outside the door. Perfect for families.
Hotel Commonwealth Boston
Located in the heart of Kenmore Square, Hotel Commonwealth is the crown jewel in the new and improved renovation of the area. There are rooms with a view of the gorgeous Commonwealth Avenue scene as well as rooms that face towards Fenway Park. Great view of the lights from just over the Turnpike below! Hotel Commonwealth is great for families that want to make Fenway Park part of their stay in Boston. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from within a stone’s throw plus there is a “T” (Boston’s underground subway system) Stop directly at the hotel entrance.
The Verb Hotel
Who wants to stay in an old HoJos hotel? We do! This ultra hip and modern renovation with a music twist of what was formerly a Howard Johnson’s hotel (and the Fenway Motor Hotel before that) had us as soon as we found out that there’s a turntable in every room. Borrow a few records (or a guitar #truestory) at the front desk. The Verb is located adjacent to Fenway Park, just out the back door making it very convenient for seeing a game at Fenway.
