The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
We went on a Sunday arriving around 11:30am. The MFA opens at 10am and the earlier you go it won't be as crowded in the galleries or on a tour. From 1-2pm on the museum was busy. We went to enjoy a special exhibit on Dutch painters and one on American 20th century artists and to break up the winter....

It was late autumn, but the trees were barely changing color. That didn't matter, this is the most charming spot to stroll and wander. Plenty of seats to stop and look around at the gorgeous homes along Commonwealth Avenue. Many, many dogs walk their people here (lucky people AND dogs) and there are twinkle lights that shine at night. You...
This was the highlight of our stay at Boston. This is the concert hall from the college for Jazz where most of the Grammy's come from! We were lucky to see and listen to a great perfomance of Cory Henri and special guests. Amazing concert with a full house, full of musiciens, students, media and jazz lovers. Highly recommended!
Fried clams excellent, oyster sandwich, salmon pate’ to die for, Goat and Donkey Chardonnay white wine absolutely delicious, raw oysters amazing and fresh. Brandon our waiter was excellent. The most fresh amazing meal that all of us had eaten at a restaurant in a long time.
Very nice location and had breakfast there two days straight, while on business. Various good breakfast options, very friendly staff and a very relaxing place start the day (even for a breakfast lunch with clients).
As a party of four we decided to order a wide range of appetizers as well as main courses. The gnocchi was the winner on the appetizer side and the duck was the main course of choice. All dishes were well prepared and aesthetically presented so the winning choices were hard
Decided to try out Wahlburgers after the game and was not disappointed. It was around 8pm so there wasn’t any wait. Our waitress was friendly and the food came out quickly. Everything was pretty good. Glad we tried it out. The Sloppy Joe was delicious and I loved the onion rings! Enough for 2 to share easily!
Stopped here with my 20 year old son. The server was a peach, super pleasant and didn't rush us one bit. The menu is pretty substantial and it's NOT for light eaters. We started with the "BBC Sweets", their take on sweet potato fries which are served tossed in caramel and cinnamon. Holy mother of god. The flavors together were...
Our stay at the Verb was wonderful. The staff was super helpful and friendly, even with late night requests. The rooms were clean with the cutest retro (but modern) decor. The record player in the room is so fun.
You can’t beat the location. It’s easy to walk so many places. I’d definitely stay here again.
I am not sure which I enjoyed more, the great bed or the friendly staff. The room, the staff, the atmosphere and the Boston area made for a fantastic weekend. Room service was prompt and the food was hot when delivered. The front desk employees went out of their way to make my daughter and I had everything we needed...
We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth for 3 nights. We had a fantastic stay, the staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The room was of a very high standard and the bed was super comfortable. We were upgraded to a suite on our last night, which was a lovely surprise. I can't fault the hotel in any way...
Great area to be in. Near the Wahlburgers and Fenway stadium. Lots to do in the area. Nice breakfast included. Modern and clean room with nice bath. Linens were crisp and clean with plentiful towels. Kitchenette included.
Noah was the most helpful and knowledgeable desk clerk I have ever dealt with. He should be promoted to manager. He is keen to help any guest especially those who are visiting the hospitals in the area.
