When planning our trip to Boston, I booked our stay at this hotel not knowing anything about the hotel other than reading some reviews and viewing their website. I was very pleased with our location and accommodations. Our Commonwealth Suite was very roomy, elegant, quiet and recently renovated. I highly recommend the adjoining restaurant, Eastern Standard. The hotel is near... More

I stayed here for two nights recently, and couldn't be more impressed. It was sensational. HUGE, beautiful rooms. Extremely clean. A tablet in every room which is really well integrated with the hotel's information. The breakfast (room service, not free) was excellent. The granola was delicious! It is a bit pricey, and the paid wifi was still slow, but it... More

I love this Hotel. The hotel staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. I recently stayed in one of the newly decorated Junior Suites. The vibe is that of a Boutique Hotel. The decor was clean, sleek and modern. The bed linens were of a luxurious quality with a high thread count. The bathroom was clean and elegantly decorated with great... More

I stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth two weekends ago. The hotel has a great location and I was excited to stay at one of the top Tripadvisor hotels in Boston. When I got in the hotel staff was friendly and they even upgraded my room. The room was very nice and was indicative of what you would expect for a... More

We stayed here with our 3 kids in a suite for my husbands 50th birthday and it was lovely! The staff acknowledged my his birthday with a nice amenity. The staff was so friendly & accommodating! We had dinner at the Island Creek Oyster Bar and breakfast at the Eastern Standard, both terrific restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Excellent hotel. Very close to Boston University, Malls and eating places. Found the quality of rooms to be great. Train station is next door, which connects the whole city and several other good places.

Loved it. The facilities were clean and beautiful, and the staff were very accommodating, including rebooking us into a room with two beds despite the booking error being on our end. The location was also very convenient to public transit, only some paces away from the Green Line's Kenmore stop on Commonwealth Ave. Loved the view of Fenway. Would recommend.

We enjoyed our stay at the Commonwealth for a family wedding in Boston. I was a little leary after my first encounter, which was the reservation phone call (on a scale of 1 to 10, was a 1). However a subequest call was much better. Valet parking, checking in and out all went smoothly, staff friendly and professional. Information about... More

I stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth earlier this month during a business trip. The staff were warm, helpful and good humoured, with Sean and the door men being stand-outs! The location was excellent - upstairs from the Kenmore green line station and taxis were easy to flag at the front of the hotel. There are excellent restaurants within the hotel... More

If you want to retrieve morning coffee by going outside the hotel (in the winter), and pay $46 for parking, get a phone charge when you call for that car and wait a stated 1/2 hour for that car then Hotel Commonwealth is the place for you! Also beware, the new room decor went from sophisticated to Marriott. The fitness... More

Many thanks for your recent review. Your comments were not what we hope to hear from guests after a stay here and I wanted to address some of your concerns. While we do not place coffee makers in every guest room, they are most certainly available upon request and at no charge and can be delivered to your room at... More
