“Thank'sTripadvisor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

This visit showed the value of Tripadvisor. We chose the hotel on the strength of the rating and reviews. They were accurate in all respects and we really enjoyed the experience of staying there. We upgraded to a wonderful 2 room suite which afforded time to relax. On the 3rd night we were checking guidebooks for places to dine when we noted that the Creek Oyster Bar in the Hotel Commonwealth was actually rated number one by Tripadvisor. 100% deserved with great food, wine and atmosphere. One of the best Oyster Bar experiences anywhere.

My husband and I booked this trip for our 8th anniversary and it was amazing. Upon arrival, there was a card, box of truffles and a bottle of champagne on our bed. The room was spacious and decorated nicely. The bed was so comfy and everything was super clean. It was a perfect getaway for us. I highly recommend this hotel.

Recently stayed at hotel for a short business trip. Was unable to do any sightseeing due to the weather, which was snowing, and therefore was forced to spend more time than normal within the confines of my hotel. Pleased to say it was superb. All amenities catered for my needs and would certainly use again if possible.

This was the perfect night in Boston. Beautiful, unique accommodations. Courteous and helpful staff from the front door, to the desk staff, to the concierge, all were welcoming, friendly and excited to help you enjoy your stay. This was the best hotel to spend the night in Boston, I wish it were more! Will definitely come back to the Hotel Commonwealth on our next trip!

I stayed the night of New Year's Eve with some friends and family and had a great time. I was upgraded to the Reading Suite which was spacious and beautifully decorated. Champagne was also sent up to the room which was a really nice touch. Definitely a great place to stay with great service.
