Boston Hotel Buckminster

Hotel Buckminster–ca. 0.5 km to Boston University conference rooms, with easy streetcar travel

Please note: Rooms at the Buckminster must be booked by Sunday, August 21. After that date all unreserved rooms will be released to the public and will increase in price.

The Buckminster is a good choice for those who want to be very close to Boston University, in a busy urban location with quick subway access to downtown Boston.  It is a somewhat older, well-maintained 100-room hotel.  Though not the height of luxury, it is quite comfortable and not without character. A continental breakfast is included.

A block of rooms at the Buckminster has been reserved for the Rilke Conference with a few different types of rooms (prices do not include 14.45% tax):

  • single queen rooms (one queen bed [152x203cm] and private bath, $145/night)
  • two-bedroom units with two beds (one queen in each fully private bedroom; shared in-suite bathroom, $185/night)
  • two-bedroom units with three beds (one queen in one bedroom, 2 full-sized beds [137x191cm] in the other; shared in-suite bathroom, $195/night)
  • double-queen suites (two queen beds in the bedroom, bathroom, and private living room, $185/night)

Note that because of the two-bed rooms and especially the two-bedroom units (two fully private bedrooms sharing one in-suite bathroom), the Buckminster is a great deal for those who are willing to share in order to reduce costs! Prices are for one or two people per room; additional people in the same room incur a $20-per-person fee.
