The character of the building, the location and the price.
The room was a bit messy upon arrival. They did come in and vacuum after we checked in.
Historical, unique, quiet, lots of character and perfect location
Bed and towels were just adequate
The Buckminster is in a great location - right off Kenmore Square. It has amazing old-style charm, a gorgeous lobby, a great restaurant for breakfast, and a warm, friendly staff. The rooms are small but clean, functional and comfortable.
The heat was not easily regulated - our room was 86 degrees. Also, the small rooms and doorways would probably not accommodate a wheelchair.
THE HOTEL WITHOUT NOTICE CHARGED MY CARD EXTRA $54.95 FOR EACH DAY THE DAY *AFTER* MY STAY WITH THEM SINCE THEY HAVE MY CARD INFO ON TOP OF THE $100 DEPOSIT THEY ASKED AT THE COUNTER. IF I DIDNT CALL THEM later FOR CLARIFICATION THEY MIGHT JUST CHARGE THE MONEY. ALSO ONE OF THE ROOM WAS JUST A MAKESHIFT ROOM WITH PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONER SINCE THE AC OF THE ROOM WAS BROKEN AND THEY STILL CHARGE FOR FULL PRICE.
