A Quick Reminder About Affordable Hotels Near Fenway Park

There really aren’t many “cheap” hotels close to Fenway Park, and “affordable” is a subjective word. When it’s baseball season and the Red Sox are in town, you can bet that hotel rates will soar. It also doesn’t help that Fenway Park is located in the Back Bay district, one of the city’s most upscale neighborhoods.


The good news is Boston is a very walkable city and its public transportation system is easy to navigate. So if you’re willing to do a little walking or hop on the T, you may find a good deal at a hotel a little farther away.


Hotels in nearby Brookline, for example, are slightly cheaper—and don’t rule out the suburbs. You may find the best deals there and can always take the commuter rail into the city, then hop on the T to get to Fenway. Needham Center has dozens of hotels within walking distance of Needham Center Station where you can take the commuter rail to South Station, and then easily take the MBTA to Fenway.

#1 - Where the Sox Stay

500 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

617-933-5000

Hotel Commonwealth, Boston, MA

Hotel Commonwealth is the official hotel of the Boston Red Sox, so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you. The hotel is also literally steps away from Fenway Park, and offers guests the ultimate fan experience. Many rooms feature spectacular views of the ballpark and Green Monster. All are spacious and deliver luxurious perks such as Italian linens, Snooz sound machines, bath products by Malin+Goetz, and a wardrobe steamer.

 

If you’re planning on seeing more than Fenway during your stay, getting to other attractions is incredibly easy as the Kenmore Square T-stop is literally underneath the hotel (don’t worry… you won’t hear it!). If you’re up for the exercise then a 20-minute walk will get you to Boston Common.

 

In addition to accommodation, the hotel restaurant (Pescador Coastal Grill) has served members of our extended family to great satisfaction, and the hotel bar has been recommended to us multiple times as hands-down, “the best” post-game option for a drink. In fact, even if you’re not drinking, the people-watching is reported to be entertaining enough.

 

The downside of all this is that the hotel isn’t exactly on the budget-friendly side (not that many on our list are) but if you’re hoping to spot your favorite ballplayer, it’s most likely to happen here.

#2 - Best for Extended Stays

125 Brookline Avenue, Boston

617-236-8787

View of the hotel Residence Inn Boston Back Bay

If you’re planning on hanging around Beantown for more than a few days, you can’t go wrong with the Residence Inn Boston Back Bay/Fenway. All rooms include a fully equipped kitchenette (fridge, microwave, stovetop, and even plates and cutlery) so you can whip up your own meals instead of dropping extra money on dining out. A free full breakfast is also available to guests every morning.

 

This pet-friendly hotel features an indoor swimming pool and fitness center. It’s incredibly close to Fenway—the rooftop bar offers stunning views of the ballpark—as well as The House of Blues, several colleges, and Newbury Street. Two large supermarkets are within walking distance.

 

The one downside is that at the time this post was published, several reviewers mentioned construction taking place nearby. As for the hotel rooms themselves, they’re modern, clean, and are furnished with pull-out sofas, making them a good value for the money.

#3 - For Those With Big Budgets

370 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

617-267-1607

The Eliot Hotel facade

The Eliot is one of Boston’s top-rated hotels for a reason: the spacious rooms are beautifully decorated, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the location is hard to beat: it’s just a half-mile from Fenway as well as other notable city attractions. You’ll pay a bit more for a stay at this iconic boutique hotel, but the price is definitely worth the down comforters and marble bathrooms you’ll find in your room.

 

While The Eliot lacks a fitness center, guests receive free access to the nearby Boston Sports Club. You can enjoy fresh sushi and other Japanese fare at the onsite restaurant Uni, or ask the concierge to make dinner reservations at any nearby restaurant. Soundproof windows and free Wi-Fi are among the perks of staying here. Valet parking is available for $59 per day.

 

The hotel is highly favored by couples, perhaps because of its romantic atmosphere, and it’s close to Symphony Hall, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Public Garden, and Inman Square. Definitely one to consider if you want to guarantee yourself a comfortable stay.

#4 - Boutique Hotel with a Rocking Vibe

1271 Boylston Street, Boston

617-566-4500

The Verb Hotel, Boston, MA

Boston isn’t just a sports town; many rock acts including Aerosmith and The Cars hail from the area. Maybe that’s why the Verb Hotel seems right at home here. This colorful, funky hotel pays homage to famous musicians with photos adorning the guest rooms and your very own record player and vinyl collection to use during your stay.

 

The staff here really know how to make guests feel, well, like a rock star. Fluffy bathrobes and free umbrellas and water bottles are among the perks of staying here. The heated outdoor pool operates year-round, so you can indulge in a dip even if it’s snowing out.

 

Fenway Park is also literally a stone’s throw away from The Verb, and many rooms have views of the bleachers. A musician plays during breakfast on the weekends, but there are plenty of dining options nearby if you need a change of scenery. In a neighborhood full of stodgy older hotels, this one definitely stands out and rocks to its own tune.

#5 - For B&B Fans

123 Longwood Avenue, Brookline

617-566-8615

The Longwood Inn hotel facade

If you’re seeking a quaint B&B removed from the hustle and bustle of Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood yet still conveniently close to Fenway Park, the Longwood Inn gets our vote. It’s homey, romantic, and only a 20-minute walk or a T ride to the ballpark.

 

Tucked away in a serene Brookline neighborhood, this beautiful former Victorian mansion offers standard rooms as well as a deluxe apartment with its own private kitchen (although all guests have access to the inn’s main kitchen and shared lounge areas.)

#7 - Best Old School Choice

47 Huntington Avenue, Boston

617-536-9000

A view on Copley Square Hotel

The Copley Square Hotel is one of Boston’s oldest, most historic hotels and that’s part of its charm. The rooms have been renovated and brought into the modern age with free wifi, flat-screen TVs, iHome music players, and mini-fridges. You’ll find free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in the lobby by day and a wine reception at night.

 

The frills end there, but as long as you’re not planning on spending a lot of time in your hotel room this shouldn’t be an issue. People stay here for the location: it’s close to Newbury Street, the Public Garden, and the Boston Public Library. And it’s within walking distance of Fenway.

 

The fitness center is rather outdated and small, but there is an on-site restaurant (that doesn’t serve lunch) and a martini bar.

#8 - Centrally Located and Convenient

10 Huntington Avenue, Boston

617-262-9600

A view on Westin Copley Place

The Westin’s motto is “the best address in Boston” and it’s hard to argue with that. It’s smack dab in the middle of the city with easy access to not only Fenway Park but downtown attractions. And because it’s steps away from the Green Line, you don’t need a car and you can even get to and from Logan Airport via the subway here.

 

Rumor has it this is also where visiting baseball teams stay when they’re in town to face off against the Sox. It’s easy to see why: the 24-hour fitness center features Peloton bikes and there are multiple dining options including a cozy cocktail bar and world-renowned Brazilian steakhouse, Fogo de Chão. The beds are official Westin Heavenly beds that are designed to deliver a comfy night’s rest.

 

The hotel is right next door to the Copley Place Mall which features world-class shopping and other dining options. Guests have noted how easy it is to get to everywhere from this hotel from the North End to Harvard Square so if you want to see a lot of the city without the hassle of renting a car, the Westin should be top-of-list.

#9 - Cozy, Cost Effective Alternative to Nearby Hotels

617-236-8099

St. Botolph was an East Anglian saint who became known as the patron saint of wayfarers. The Inn at St. Botolph is living up to its namesake by providing visitors with everything they need to feel comfortable while staying in Boston.

#10 - For Those With Overflowing Wallets

One Dalton Street, Boston

617-377-4888

A view onFour Seasons at One Dalton hotel

The last hotel on our list is not one that most people would consider due to its cost, but worth a mention as it’s undoubtedly the most luxurious accommodations in the area. We’re talking about the Four Seasons Hotel at One Dalton Street, Boston which opened in 2019 in the Back Bay. This exclusive five-star hotel is housed, along with luxury condos, in the third tallest building in the city.

 

No surprise, the rates are as high and dizzying as the building itself, but you’re paying for exceptional service and amenities. It’s typical for the staff to text you ahead of your stay to arrange any special requests, and there’s an in-room tablet to book hotel services that include 24-hour room service, onsite spa treatments, dry cleaning, and other modern amenities. The higher floors offer panoramic views of the city, and the fitness center is bathed in sunlight. Valet parking is a given.

 

The hotel is a short walk to Fenway as well as the Prudential Center and the MBTA giving you easy access to downtown Boston and everything it has to offer. The concierge can also put together a list of places to visit depending on your interests.

 

If anything, this would be the splurge-worthy hotel to check off on your bucket list just to say you stayed there once.
