I stayed in this hotel while attending a conference at the Convention Centre. If the Convention Centre hotels are full (which was the case when I tried) then the Commonwealth is certainly worth considering being a 15 minute walk. The room was large and quiet and the aircon was excellent, bed comfortable, wifi free, a desk to work at etc... More

We cancelled our reservation, but we had trouble cancelling online on the hotel's website so we called and were told "no problem." Then they charged us for two rooms for one night each and when we complained, they refused the refund saying there was no record of cancellation. I fought the charge with amex, but amex said we had no... More

As the top rated hotel in Boston on TripAdvisor, I expected a bit more from this hotel. The room was a good size, clean, and the staff were helpful. The location of the hotel was also ideal - walking distance to most of the sites and super close to the subway. We did have a view of Fenway, but that... More

Every summer I take a "baseball trip" to various cities in the U.S. This summer Fenway Park in Boston was on my agenda and I needed a hotel in Boston that was close to Fenway. Luckily I met a travel agent a year prior who recommended the Commonwealth. My experience at this hotel was phenomenal. The room was exceptionally clean,... More

We were in Boston for the Red Sox Games and we cannot say enough about the service from the time we arrived to the time we left. We enjoyed our conversations with Frankie (the door man) very personable and very helpful. The front desk did everything they could to help me locate gluten free restaurants and even made the reservations... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a quick getaway and a Red Sox game. It was a fabulous experience. From the valet, to the front desk, to housekeeping and more, the staff did everything to ensure a great experience. I felt welcomed and pampered. The rooms are lovely and the beds are super comfy, and the options of two... More

My husband is a Boston native and his wish for his 40th birthday ways to see a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. After I bought my game tickets, I booked an overnight stay at the Commonwealth Hotel at the recommendation of a friend. Well, I am glad I did because everything about the hotel made the birthday a memorable... More

I cannot say enough about the service at the Hotel Commonwealth. My son was lucky enough to be selected to sing the National Anthem at the Red Sox on Saturday night and the staff did everything possible to make it an unforgettable experience for our family. Our room was large and looked out on Fenway Park. The location was perfect.... More

This is a nice location and with staff that seem to care for the most part. Unfortunately, it only takes 1 person to undo all the good others work hard to create. For example, the cleaning staff at The Hotel Commonwealth has major issues. The housekeeper was perfectly comfortable ignoring the 'Do Not Disturb' sign twice in the same morning.... More
