We booked a "Deluxe Room" with a view overlooking Fenway Park in March a full five months before our planned arrival in Boston. After a very long journey including a transatlantic flight and a visit to my postgrad student daughter to deliver necessities for her unfurnished accommodation we arrived at The Commonwealth. The tarnished brass banistered staircase to the reception... More

Beautiful Hotel, close to Fenway park and Boston University. Rooms were clean and large, beds were comfortable. Cost a bit high and had to pay for them to park car, but nice walking area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only drawback, no free coffee for guests in the lobby area. Had to go and buy some.

When I travel to Boston on business, I always stay at the Hotel Commonwealth. It's a great hotel - very nice rooms, great service, very helpful staff. I always feel pampered when I'm there. The hotel is quite close to Fenway Park. And within one block you have most of the comforts of home - a couple great seafood restaurants,... More

I spent two nights at Commonwealth during a job trip to Boston and I must say that everything was wonderful and perfect during my stay at this hotel. Nice location, very close to everywhere you might need to go but surprinsigly quiet, nice building, nice and modern furniture, clean rooms, large bathrooms, and all the people working there were very...

Just came back from two nights stay at the Commonwealth. From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel really welcome, and the reception/front desk staff were efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. We stayed in an executive suite (I believe) which had a screened off seating area, where we managed to squeeze to roll-away beds for our teenage sons.... More

Great service, beautiful rooms, wonderful location. One really gets the sense of luxury. I just wish they had coffee makers in the rooms - the one thing I found annoying was having to go downstairs and out of the lobby to get coffee.

The staff and amenities here are just above and beyond all expectations!! We will definitely be staying here on our return trips to Boston. The food was amazing too. The proximity to BU is great for visiting our daughter, we are excited to return.

Very good hotel in a reasonable quiet area so no traffic noise. very close to the subway although we walked most places as the weather was so good. Rooms were spacious. My only niggle is that there wasn't a hotel guide in the room. there is a tablet next to the bed which actually contains alt the info. Unfortunately no-one... More

Recently took vacation in Boston to attend a few Red Sox games with my husband. Hotel was great! Excellent service, clean and quiet! We were able to go back and forth to Fenway very easily! We were also able to enjoy all of the shops along Newberry St. and our favorite Back Bay area stops! The only thing I would... More

This is a Ritz with out the overdone and costly amenities. The staff is knowledgeable (great restaurant recommendations) and courteous. The rooms are spacious, quiet, comfortable, and clean. The location is perfect, especially close to Fenway and BU and the T. Great hotel.
