Great city hotel right near mass transit, Fenway Park and Boston University surrounded by great dining options. From the doorman to the desk staff then to housekeeping, service was impeccable. Felt like the Waldorf or Plaza in NY without the highbrow. Room was spacious, immaculate, comfortable and beautifully decorated with all the amenities one would expect. We left an article... More

Great location, right next to a T subway station, Fenway Park and the beautiful Back Bay. Friendly staff and nice European decor room, stayed in a corner Kenmore room and literally had windows with views on 3 walls. Relatively quiet, even during game days. Both associated restaurants, Island Creek Oyster Bar and Eastern Standard were good as well.

The staff was very nice and very helpful, we took their recommendations on several things and they were right on the money. The hotel was quiet and clean. The rooms were nicely sized, especially for a place in the city. Bathrooms were very nice,... More

The front doormen and bell hop personnel always greeted us in a friendly and professional manner. The front desk staff were also friendly , professional and made us seem special. The... More

My son and I recently stayed in the Baseball Suite at the Hotel Commonwealth. EVERY aspect exceeded expectations. Upon arrival, the doorman and registration staff donned smiles and were more than helpful and available. The suite itself was a treasure. My son looked at every artifact and enjoyed one of the baseball movies available. Not only was it very clean,... More
