Over the past five years, I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel about eight different times. Every visit has been wonderful. The hotel has gradually gone through some style changes that have resulted in a more modern look, (yes I do like others sort of miss the previous style of the hallways and rooms), but the bottom...

My husband and I booked this hotel through Groupon for an overnight stay in Boston to see a concert. We were immediately greeted by a friendly bellman and valet. The bell man took our bags and showed us the way to the temporary lobby entrance (due to construction). The concierge was also very friendly and we were upgraded to a... More

My parents, sister, and myself travelled from out west and were all extremely happy with the service we got at the Commonwealth. Rooms were clean, and the staff were all respectful and eager to help us pick out dinner options each evening. The view of Fenway was a nice added bonus!

Hotel have great location. It have 2 excellence restaurant plus Starbucks and convenience store close. The hotel is very clean and personal was very friendly. I really recommend the hotel. We visit in January and it was pretty cold, but we could walk to a shopping near and it was very nice.

Had a quick overnighter in Boston and friends recommended this hotel. Have to concur - coolest decorated hotel room I've ever had - go Boston U! The Staff were friendly and professional. Renovations had no bearing on the quality of the experience. Excellent location and easy to get to from the airport.

Hotel Commonwealth is nice but it was being renovated while we stayed. There was construction noise. The lobby is nonexistent. The entrance to the hotel is hard to find!!! The staff was efficient but not really friendly. The room was clean and comfortable.

Great location. Large clean rooms. Much better value than other hotels in the area. The lobby was under construction but I'd still recommend the hotel as a first option for anyone attending event or looking to stay in Fenway area.

Enjoyed this well situated hotel. Construction was the only downside to a great stay. Hotel had some construction going on and the Fenway view looked on to a steel structure with construction workers. ;)

We went with another couple, valet is extra charge of 47$ the bell hop was very nice and helpful. Rooms were spacious with nice bathroom products and great water pressure. Beware if your room faces the back, construction starts bright and early. Also bring k-cups unless you like super bold coffee.

Many thanks for sharing your experience. It's pleasing to hear that our staff took good care of you and that you enjoyed your spacious guest room. We do hope that although the development of our new wing continues the triple pained windows in your guest room ensured you were not disturbed by noise during your stay. If our coffee K... More
