We arrived earlier than the 'check-in' time & the front desk gave us the option to upgrade to another suite which was available. Reception personnel were very cheerful & helpful. Give them 5 stars! Very clean comfortable room. The bed was super comfortable. Fantastic location, close to Fenway. Short taxi ride into city. Like the 12 noon check out time.... More

Offering olde world charm with modern convenience at an amazingly convenient location. Attention to customer service is matchless. The Oyster Bar takes shucking to a new level. Local pale ales combine with fresh seafood made my day. Would return in a heartbeat.

I like to think I'm a harsh, but fair critic. If a hotel is going to have 4.5 stars on Hotwire you expect near perfection. The Hotel Commonwealth is very nice, but it needs some work. Here were some issues encountered during the stay: * The room was missing an ironing board. A small table top one was brought to... More

We stayed here the weekend of the Red Sox home opener. I booked on Hotwire for a decent rate. The location is spectacular, just around the corner to Fenway and a short walk to the bars on Boylston St. We arrived too early for our room to be ready but were given the option to upgrade to an available junior...

As a former Boston University student, I used to live right across the street from Hotel Commonwealth, so on my most recent trip back to Boston I knew I had to stay there. I bought my room through a 3rd party so I ended up with a handicap accessible room, however I had an excellent view and the bed was... More

I stayed at this hotel with my god-daughter so that she could visit Boston University. It was in a perfect location for this and to also see other parts of the city. The hotel staff from Valet parking to the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and large, very clean and comfortable. We ordered room... More

I always love staying at the "Hotel Commonwealth" when I visit my son in Boston. From the front desk to the doormen to the superior staff who care for the rooms the hotel is the BEST....They always know the best places to eat, sightsee and to shop. Thanks again for a great stay and we will see you in May.... More

We stayed here through a special 'blind rate' purchase, and wouldn't have booked since we tend to stay over by the Pru side of 'Back Bay.' When the hotel name popped up, we were curious and excited to give it a try. As it turned out, we loved the hotel. We were only put on the second floor, facing Comm... More

I recently had the most positive and heartwarming experience at this hotel on April 9th, 2014. I hope you will ready the letter I wrote to the manager below and you will see why you should stay here anytime you are in Boston: Dear Adam, I am writing this letter to you today to let you know about my recent...

The restaurants below-- island creek and eastern standard-- are both good. I lived in boston for four years and this is a hotel which I frequent when I return for a visit. I have... More
