Room was spacious, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. We had room with no view but it did not matter. Location was great to go to the baseball but also to walk around this beautiful old suburb.

We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth this past weekend. I must admit, I have stayed in numerous hotels throughout Boston and the Hotel Commonwealth was the best by far! The staff was excellent!! They were very attentive our requests and/or needs. The place was also extremely clean. The beds were quite comfortable and the showers had great water pressure -... More

We absolutely loved our stay! The check- in was so easy and the girl who helped us was really nice. The hotel is right next to Fenway Stadium, we couldn't see the stadium from the room we stayed in, but I am sure you can see it from the other side. I mean the location is just perfect. You have...

I really liked the hotel. The room was large, conveniently laid out, and quiet, with a desk with all conveniences a traveler with a laptop likes (mainly easy access to power and free, good wi-fi). The main plus for me was the extraordinary friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, from Jeff at the door - who was great - to... More

I have stayed in several hotels since we often go to Red Sox games however, was my first time at the Commonwealth and was pleasantly surprised by the ambience. We were greeted at the front desk by a young gentleman who was gracious and hospitable. We were also extremely happy with size of the room and the decor, Overall, it... More

As I live in London but occasionally commute back to work for a week or two in Boston, I was looking forward to staying at the Hotel Commonwealth due its incredibly central location and great reputation. A few things of note: PROS: * Amazing location, could not be better situated in Boston being so close to Fenway * Wonderful front... More

I generally stay at the Ritz or Four Seasons when available and convenient to my situation. I say that to make sure you know what I am talking about and this isn;t my first review. This was highly rated on Tripadvisor so I took the chance and booked a room for our 5 day trip to Boston for my wife's... More

Our first time staying here was last November (2014). We loved staying here so much that we brought my parents and nieces on our return. As always, we slept well, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was nicely updated. The front desk staff and doormen were courteous and helpful. The location of this hotel is perfect and... More

From top to bottom this hotel is first in class. The lobby is a fantastic place to lounge, the rooms are clean, quiet, large, have great views, and nice finishes. Both attached restaurants and the Hawthorne are some of the best places in the City. But what truly sets this place apart is the experience and service delivered by the... More

We've stayed here several times. Great location if you want to go to Fenway, BU or get on the T and go downtown. Very easy to get anywhere. Great staff, clean room! The hotel is very high end much nicer than all others in the immediate area.
