We have been guests of the Hotel Commonwealth several times since 2007 because our daughter is a patient at Children's Hospital Boston. Everything about this hotel is wonderful. The service, cleanliness, food and rooms are all top notch. The room size is very big and we've never had any problem with noise, uncleanliness or poor service. Everyone is incredibly friendly...

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Commonwealth. The rooms are clean with all the things you need-a safe, towels galore, bathrobe, slippers, glasses, ice, alarm clock, beautiful shampoo and if you don't have it right there, the friendly staff will gladly find what you are looking for. We were greeted upon arrival right away and bag handling, car valet... More

We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth several times while my "middle" was in school down the street, and again this past weekend. I have to say that the hotel has allowed itself to slide back a bit toward all the other nice hotels in the general area. Three of us checked in to a junior suite, yet the turndown service... More

Our eleventh trip to Boston to see family, Red Sox and Bruins. The one constant is the superb care, meticulous accommodations and predictable excellence of the staff, the rooms and the wonderful food at the Commonwealth. We'll be back again this summer.

Everything about our stay was top-flight. Staff was attentive and friendly. Room was large, immaculate with an elegant, luxurious feel. Unlike any experience I've had at a hotel , like being transported back in time to a different world. Will only be staying here from now on in Boston!

This is a beautiful hotel - well appointed. Only complaint was when I was leaving, waiting for my car to be brought to me. Instead of taking people in the order of their arrival (I know people could have requested their car from the front desk or concierge desk), people who arrived after me, by 10 and 15 minutes, received...
