“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

A brilliant hotel with great service,Nick at the front desk is very efficient and always there to help.
There two great restaurants downstairs and the hotel is very close to some great shopping areas.
The bath in our room was very strange,but other than that I can't fault this hotel.

This is a lovely hotel, with great service and beautiful rooms. I highly recommend it! The hotel is very convenient to public transportation, or you can take a fairly inexpensive cab ride into the heart of town. The restaurants are fantastic! Also attached to the hotel are a camera shop, photo gallery and Starbucks. In case you forget anything, it's a very short walk to a convenience store and a fairly close walk to a CVS. Our room was spacious and spotless, housekeeping did a fantastic job, and the front desk folks were awesome.

This was our second time visiting the Hotel Commonwealth and it was perfect once again. The room was a great size for a family of four, spacious and clean. The location is perfect, we spent a great afternoon and evening on Newbury Street- all within walking distance. The people who work there are just wonderful. Customer service at its best!

Room Tip: Ask for the oversized room with the foldout sofa if you have kids! The room is plenty big!

From the courteous staff, to the exceptional location, everything about our stay was fantastic! We had an excellent breakfast at the restaurant and loved that we could get to Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts while barely stepping outside. The lobby is inviting and comfortable - we even had a couple drinks down there one night!

Room Tip: Groupon makes the stay even better!

Once you take the flight of stairs to the first floor lobby just take moment and look around. The lobby is simply beautiful; the staff was very friendly and greeted us with champagne while checking in. We were upgraded to a very large, comfortable and well appointed suite which lent itself to a romantic adult weekend away.

I purchased a one-night stay for our son and daughter-in-law for when their first child turned 6 months. I researched a hotel that would make them feel as special as they are and have great restaurants nearby. They loved everything about it! A great choice for a romantic weekend gift.
I booked directly with the hotel and the staff was wonderful - I appreciate great customer service and was not disappointed with all the follow-up emails, opportunity to up-grade and confirmations I received.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Commonwealth for his 30th birthday. We got married at HC and have stayed there for subsequent anniversaries, and have always had a wonderful experience with excellent and attentive service. The staff sent us champagne and upgraded our room for my husbands birthday. We will continue to stay at HC for all anniversaries and birthdays to come. Although we live in the city, it is such a relaxing getaway!

Room Tip: Reading suite was so interesting!
