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.

Neighborhood
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.

The room was lovely, location is great for Fenway. It is always a pleasure to stay at Hotel Commonwealth. The restaurant is great as well. Highly recommended for a deluxe stay near the Red Sox (there is a reason that the other teams stay here ...)

After reading so many good reviews we decided on Hotel Commonwealth for our recent stay in Boston. However, it was a huge disappointment. We had requested rooms away from street noise but once we checked into our rooms we noticed our rooms are right next to the freeway, really

Hotel was nice - No parking in the area valet was $54.00 per night. The room rate was good however they hit you with a hidden $25.00 Amenities charge . This charge is because they offer you all the things other hotels provide as aprt of the rate. Internet, Business center,

Dear Blueskylove, Thank you for choosing Hotel Commonwealth for the 2019 Boston Marathon! I hope the pasta and green salad at Eastern Standard gave you the energy required for the big race! We hope to see you again next year.

I've stayed in both rooms. I recently stayed in the Fenway room for 2 nights with my husband and 16 year old daughter. There wasn't a game (not baseball season quite yet), and therefore it was very quiet. It overlooks the Mass Pike and there's a view of Fenway Park. I've previously stayed in a Kenmore room and I had no complaints but it does overlook Comm Ave where there is traffic at times and you can occasion here some noise (but nothing that would keep you awake). If I had to choose one or the other, I'd pick the Fenway room again, although you really can't go wrong with both.
