I stayed in Hotel Commonwealth for the Boston Marathon weekend, and I did not regret my choice! This hotel had everything I was looking for, as a runner and a woman travelling alone : - Great location, at a walking distance from Boston Common and Hynes Convention Center. - Safe neighbourhood, I was not afraid to take walks alone even...

We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth for Marathon Monday and everything about our trip was excellent. Staff was accomdatinf, valet parking was easy and reasonable, and the room offered a great view of the marathon and commonwealth ave. We also stayed last year for the same event and both times were equally pleasant and enjoyable.

My family of four, including two teenagers, stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth from Friday to Monday of the weekend of the Boston Marathon, which I ran. It is a lovely, small, independent hotel in a great, central location at Kenmore Square, right at the T stop there, so pretty easy to get anywhere. It is an easy walk to Fenway,... More

Booked this room last minute on the eve of the Boston Marathon it was the last room available and the BEST room. It faced the Citgo sign and had a fantastic view down Comm Ave. the front Fest employees could not have been nicer and accommodating. The Hawthorn bar downstairs seems to be an unknown gem. (We didn't use the... More

Very nice high-end hotel experience, in a one-of-a-kind venue. I love the way the hotel combines its historic location and unusual layout with top-of-the-line modern attitude and conveniences. Definitely one of my most pleasant recent hotel experiences.

Our 3rd time staying here and once again they went above expectations! I had requested reservations with Eastern Standard downstairs (a must for dinner or breakfast!). The request was handled promptly before our arrival. Upon arrival I realized I requested the wrong evening. The front desk was able to make the proper change within minutes! The second evening we rented... More

Everything about this hotel was disappointing (or worse!) apart from the Wi-Fi which is as good as it gets. Some aspects of the hotel are terrible. If you expect a great hotel experience in Boston this is not the place to stay.....I am astounded that Hotel Commonwealth is rated No 1 on Tripadvisor. The Commonwealth ask guests to review their...

I would definitely stay at the Commonwealth Hotel again. The employees from the valet to the front desk were top notch. Concierge is very knowledgeable and helpful. He, Nicholas, helped us out tremendously in a very short period of time. I give the experience an A+.
