We had a great time in Boston staying at Hotel Commonwealth. We had a view of Fenway Park because of the room we booked, and after the game they had the lights on while they were cleaning up after the game and it looked pretty. We did go to the Rex Sox game that night at Fenway Park, and because... More

Just stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Commonwealth. Very pleased with the location, very near to the Back Bay train station, the T and Newbury shopping area. The room was huge! Housekeeping could be a little better, I noticed lots of dust on the table surfaces and when I opened the bedside table drawer, there was a half eaten... More

Not only is this hotel beautiful, but we were given a room that overlooked Fenway park. The amenities in the room were very nice and the design of the hotel was beautiful. It's sort of a combination of standard style of hotel with boutique design.

Even though I had business at Harvard, I decided to try this hotel in Boston due to a competitive rate! Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The attached Eastern Standard restaurant was a SUPER place to have a reasonable and delicious breakfast. I know... More

My wife and I spent a Sunday night at the Commonwealth due to its' close proximity to Fenway Park, we were attending an afternoon Red Sox game. We arrived in the late morning, left the car with the hotel's valet service, and despite our morning arrival, we were able to get right into our room. The hotel was modern, the... More

We were in Boston to move our son and see the city. We were able to walk all over from the hotel's location, but there was a T-stop under the hotel and bus stop across the street. The staff was great with everyone they encountered. We will definitely return!

This is the second time we have stayed here, as it is a great location after seeing a concert at Fenway Park. Being able to drop off bags early in the afternoon, prior to check in, and then being able to check in as we go to the concert, so that we may enjoy the city, is a great convenience.... 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
