Logo   Kenmore Square, Boston MA
Near Boston University, Fenway Park and other Boston institutions, Kenmore Square has its own collection of hotels and restaurants.




Kenmore Square is a Boston landmark at the western end of Commonwealth Avenue's parklike extent. (Comm Ave continues westward, but without the trees that make it part of the Emerald Necklace.)

On the Boston skyline at night, you can always locate Kenmore Square by the huge red Citgo delta sign.

Here are the best hotels near Kenmore Square.

With Boston University just to the west, Kenmore is enlivened by students and professors who flock to its cafés, bookstores, movies, and clubs.

Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team, is just to the south of the square, which you can readily realize on any summer night when there's a game being played: you'll see the lights and hear the noise.

Here are hotels near Fenway Park.

To get to Kenmore Square by subway, take any Green Line B (Boston College), C (Cleveland Circle) or D Riverside) train to the Kenmore station.
