Meeting room was fine. Catering for that meeting and an evening dinner was very nice. Staff was attentive. I do not know if it was an inhouse or out of house caterer. Near airport yet in nice part of Boston.

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
