Fenway Park may be the oldest stadium in baseball, but there’s nothing staid about Boston hotels near the baseball stadium. Boston hosts a mix of playful boutiques and refined luxury hotels, many within walking distance of a Red Sox game, giving visiting fans plenty of options of where to stay. Whether you prefer a view of the stadium from your bed, or you’re more concerned with entertainment after the game is over, Boston hotels have you covered. Here are a few of our favorite options near Fenway Park.
The Verb Hotel
Funky and energetic, the Verb hosts a young and eclectic crowd just steps from Fenway Park. Vinyl spins in the lobby (and at Japanese style record bar, The Groove), bachelorette parties lounge around the pool, and booze flows freely in proper rock and roll fashion. Rooms are super stylish (and armed with their own record players, of course), but the sprightly guests at The Verb spend more of their time eating, dancing and drinking than sleeping in their rooms. Between a fantastic baseball game and a spin at The Verb, you won’t have a down moment in the Hub.
1271 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02215
Home to the elegant Eastern Standard brasserie, the Hotel Commonwealth also provides lodging with a perfect view of the stadium. The style is nouveau New England, with chic updates on top of old school headboards and houndstooth pillows. Some rooms even feature decorations themed specifically for the Sox.

The Eliot Hotel
Treat yourself to a stay at the plush Eliot Hotel, where suites are the standard move and European style luxury coats every surface and service interaction. The Back Bay hotel sits in a neo-Georgian building that dates back to 1925, and Old World decor dominates with Italian marble and fine linens at every turn. It doesn’t come cheap, but a room at the Eliot will have you feeling royally pampered as you float into Fenway on airs.

The Colonnade Hotel
Excellently located for both a game and some diversion at the boutiques along Newbury Street, the ultra-hip Colonnade Hotel supplies plenty of entertainment, should a game not be enough to keep you busy during your stay. The rooftop pool is popular among visitors and locals alike, but you could spend hours staring out on the city through the fantastic floor-to-ceiling windows in guest rooms.
120 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02116
The Kendall Hotel
The properties immediately surrounding Fenway in Back Bay and Kenmore tend to be expensive luxury hotels or high-end boutiques. For something lower key, head across the Charles to The Kendall Hotel in Kendall Square. With a balanced mix of luxurious common areas and homey rooms (many decked out in patriotic red, white and blue), the Kendall strikes an easygoing chord that immediately makes visitors feel relaxed, the perfect place to unwind before or after a heated baseball game.
