The staff was very helpful from the minute we arrived. We loved the décor and "fun" atmosphere. A nice change from your typical hotel chains. We were on a "concert" weekend so it was perfect! I was surprised how quiet it was since we were on the first floor on right off Boylston street.

Needed a quiet place to stay for one night in Boston and this fit the bill. I was nervous that it would be loud since my room overlooked busy Kenmore Square but I slept great. The room was huge (nice touch to have curtains that could be drawn to create a separate sitting/work area apart from the sleeping area). The king sized bed was super comfortable and the water pressure was great in the shower (these are things I notice). Bonus was being able to walk right down into Eastern Standard restaurant, get an immediate seat at the bar, and have a nice dinner.

I was coming into town for a convention so I was looking for a cheap hotel close to public transportation and the convention center. The Buckminster is a 15 min walk or just one subway stop to Hynes Convention Center and shopping on Newbury St, a 1/2 block from the subway and two blocks from Fenway Park/Landsdowne St. It had the cheapest per night rate as well.
I had a room with one bed but it was a small suite. It is a very old hotel so the rooms are a little on the small side but very comfortable. The living area had a couch, TV, refridgerator and microwave. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. Each room had a closet for longer stays. I also got a $10 coupon per day to use in the downstairs restaurant, which came in handy for breakfast.
