First of all the location for the Hotel was amazing! My wife and I were on our honeymoon and were going to two games at Fenway. The hotel is right by Fenway as well as a convenient location for other dining and shopping, and literally right next to the "T" subway which we utilized quite a bit. The area definitely... More

Kenmore Square's Hotel Commonwealth has been newly redone with a contemporary flair. It is inviting, with a clean, crisp feel to the would be hotel guest. The Frontline staff is personable, very approachable if questions need to be addressed and more than accommodating. The rooms have been tastefully done over and it was a scenic view from our vantage point... More

Loved the new room. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite (very unexpected) and it was great. Had a view of the Citgo sign and that's when I learned that it's the official hotel of the Boston Red Sox! My favorite part was the staff. Super friendly and so helpful! Can't wait to stay again!

Wow. We were completely impressed by our first trip to Hotel Commonwealth. This is a gorgeous hotel with an inviting and well trained team of welcoming professionals. We got the Junior Suite for three nights so our daughter who goes to BU could stay with us. The suite was beautiful with a great view of Kenmore Square. The location can't... More

I had a junior suite . It was nothing special. I read that the Commonwealth is among Boston's top 3 hotels. Compared to properties in NYC and LA that I have stayed in, it just didn't measure up. The only reason I stayed there is its location very near Fenway Park where I attended 3 ballgames. I paid $479.00 each... More

I come to drop my son to Boston university. Because it's close by I choose this hotel. The hotel reception was very nice. We got free upgrade to suite. Also the hotel is very beautiful and comfy. I will choose to stay here whenever I come to visit my son.

Logistical convenience to Fenway Park and to T via Kenmore Station is second to none. Friendly and helpful staff were great during 7 day stay. Newly remodeled rooms are really nice, with king bed and separate curtained or sliding door separated room. Absolutely no complaints.

The hotel is extremely clean, comfortable and the rooms are VERY generously sized. Staff offers the exceptional service you'd expect at this caliber hotel, without any of the attitude you get from some of their competitors. I would highly recommend this property!!!!

From the minute we pulled up to the Hotel Commonweath Frankie the valet was opening our doors and welcoming us with this great warm smile. Shortly after that Steve the bellman was escorting us up to the front desk where Jeff was greeting us and was kind enough to upgrade us to a junior suite. The suite was gorgeous, "Thank... More
