Swing, batter batter! For sports-mad fans (and especially those of the favorite pastime of Americans), these hotels in Boston, bookable with Culture Trip and within striking distance of one of baseball’s most famous arenas, are bucket-list material.
Oil up your mitt, and get ready to visit the ballpark: Fenway. You’ll never forget your first meeting with the so-called Green Monster, and you’ll close out nine innings with a new appreciation for the game. But Boston is much more than just a sports town, and its hospitality and history deserve to be embraced. An overnight stay at one of these hotels and B&Bs will knock your trip out of the park.

Now from $116 per night
It’s best to keep your glove on you when you stay at the Verb Hotel. Located right across the street from Fenway, you can turn game day into an all-star experience by starting your morning with a dip in the Verb’s saltwater pool before bar-hopping your way around the bases before the first pitch is thrown. When the game ends and the bars close, head back to your king or queen suite, and grab one last floodlit view of the stadium from your window before calling it a night.

There’s no way you can stay this close to the ballpark and not book Hotel Commonwealth’s Fenway Park Suite. Your balcony faces Fenway and even has real dirt and seats from the park. Inside, you’ll find other collectibles, such as a coffee table autographed by Red Sox players and the number six from the stadium’s scoreboard. Mix up a drink in your wet bar, stream the road game on the smart TV in your room, and see if the concierge can send up a box of Cracker Jack.
