This was the fist time staying here being very loyal to another chain. They did not disappoint! We will definitely stay here again. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. The front desk (I wish I had their names so I could give proper credit) were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our room, very spacious, had an amazing view of... More

I was in town for a conference at BU. It is extremely well located to the campus. My room was very large, and had a large bathroom, as well. The rooms were a bit sparse, but definitely serviceable. The service was quite good while I was there, and I would consider staying here again if I was in the area.

Wonderful! I booked this trip for my husband, a birthday gift! He loves the Red Socks. I needed special accomodations because of health concerns and had no trouble. Our seats were behind home base. I will do this again!!!!

My husband and I stayed at the Commonwealth Hotel before a Red Sox game last Sunday. We purchased the hotel room online and decided to upgrade when we were at the front desk for only $30. The upgrade to a suite was lovely and had a great view of the famous Citgo sign! The room was very clean and had... More

My husband, son and I recently stayed two nights at Hotel Commonwealth and we enjoyed it very much. Very close to Fenway Park, about a 5 minute walk. The T stop (subway) was right outside the front entrance. The staff, from the doormen and valet to the front desk, were friendly and professional. Our room was a clean and spacious... More

The Hotel Commonwealth is an exceptional place. We loved our stay there and wish that similar lodging were available in every city we visit. The Kenmore Square location is perfect for accessing the best of Boston. The property itself is beautiful and the rooms are incredibly comfortable - excellent beds, strong water pressure in the shower and proper curtains for... More

Stayed with my kids for a weekend trip to Fenway. Hotel was great with a view of Fenway Park. Employees went out of their way to assist you and were all very friendly. Hotel was exceptionally clean, very well located and had 2 very good restaurants. Island Creek Oyster Bar was one of the best restaurants that I have ever... More

Spent the weekend in Boston at the Hotel Commonwealth and the entire experience was lovely. The rooms are spacious and modern, with well-appointed amenities and a clean, fresh feel. Amazingly comfortable bed. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The location can't be beat for Fenway Park, and the subway, but is also very walkable to other areas of town. Overall... More
