Hotel Commonwealth has recently added a new wing and renovated the interior of the entire hotel, and it looks great. More modern in its lobby appearance now but still displaying impeccable taste. If you... More

We stay here often. From the valet to the front desk to housekeeping. The staff is the best! Had lunch at Eastern Standard and dinner at Island Creek Oyster Bar (fabulous)! We stayed in the Rock n' Roll Suite this time and the view was incredible! Check it out!

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but 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 within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
