We had a corner suite with views of Fenway Park. The room was large and trendy and well appointed. It was very comfortable. The bed was soft and amazing. The bathroom was nice but the shower flush with the floor so the water would splash out. I liked the doors in between the rooms and I also loved the baseball... More

We stayed here back in June for the Nathan Rateliff show and from the moment we arrived, we were happy and excited to be there. The staff was terrific and their service was impeccable! They upgraded our room to a suite and we had an amazing time. We chose to stay there again for Pearl Jam and arranged for the... More

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away. The room was absolutely phenomenal. We were able to get an upgrade due to availability and it was worth the small extra fee. We loved the close proximity to Fenway Park and also Newberry street shopping. I would recommend this hotel very highly and can't wait to stay again.

The hotel is exceptional and if you are going to anything at Fenway you cannot beat the location. You look right at the iconic Citco sign Can't get more Boston than that. Service is excellent and great walking distance to Newbury St

Stayed here in 2014 during a Zac Brown Band concert. Was worth every penny, had a view of the back side of Fenway, now they have built an addition so not sure of the view. Great staff, great hotel!! If available I will stay again when going to Fenway!!

The hotel was nice and all but I wasn't really that impressed for the price of it. We had a Fenway King room that was just ok. If we were to go there again for a game or any event at the ballpark we definitely won't stay there again

This hotel is centrally located - near Fenway and a quick walk to Newbury and Bolyston Streets. The beds are comfortable. Staff was pleasant. There was an unpleasant smell in the lobby and elevators, though, and the elevators could use some work. You should ask for a room in the tier away from Commonwealth (entrance street), which we had, to... More

Traveled to Boston to watch our home team play a game at Fenway Park. Picked the best hotel for that. It was walking distance to the game. The "T" was steps from the front door of the hotel, very convenient. Hotel was clean, modern and very nice. We had an Executive Suite, very comfortable. Staff was friendly and very helpful.... More

I am writing this review at 4:30 in the morning on the third and final night of my stay at the Hotel Commonwealth, because once again I've been awakened by noise from other hotel guests -- and I am typically an extremely sound sleeper. There is a large gap under the door of my hotel room leading to the hallway,... More

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A thoughtful reimagining of what a Boston hotel can be, Hotel Commonwealth unhinges luxury from its traditional definition to bring guests urban vibrance and the ultimate in unscripted hospitality, right in Kenmore Square. That our stylish spot flanks Boston's beloved Fenway Park shines bright on its list of perks, as does being in easy embrace of the city's prominent academic, medical, technology areas. Offering notably ample guestrooms, an authentic "of-service" culture, and food so good even the locals are loyal, our hotel has distinguished itself as a Boston favorite. Newly conceived interiors remain faithful to the hotel's legendary welcoming feel, blending effortless style with considered comforts to create a relaxed urban destination. The result? A refreshingly real hotel where travel smart professionals and knowing influentials converge for inspiration and the unbridled joy of getting it right. This is Hotel Commonwealth. ... more   less
