Had the pleasure of staying here 2 nights for business and it was phenomenal. We were hosting an event at the Red Sox game and not only was this hotel super close to Fenway, but it also served as an "oasis" of relaxation and rejuvenation in the heat of the summer. Gorgeous rooms, wonderful amenities, friendly staff. I dined at... More

As a light sleeper, it's hard to fully recommend this hotel because of the street noise. Lots of the rooms are right off of Commonwealth, which is a fairly busy road, so the traffic noise seeps into the rooms pretty much all night. I specifically asked for a "quiet room" and the woman at the front desk assured me my... More

This is the place to stay when visiting Boston. Close to walking and biking and the best thing?! Right around the corner from Finway. We opted for their baseball package and felt it worth it despite the expense. If you don't mind a 5 mile walk, you can walk back and forth from downtown Boston. We are looking forward to... More

If you are a red sox fan and plan to go to a game in Fenway Park, this is definitely the best place to stay. The park is just around the corner! The room I had was clean and spacious. Checkin and checkout was efficient. Other than that the Commonwealth did not have much to offer. The hotel staff was... More

The hotel location is great for a Fenway Park event or for parents of Boston University students. Otherwise I am not sure why else to stay around this area. It is a nice hotel, clean, but also pricey. It is convenient to 2 restaurants without having to go outside too.

The room I had was a regular King room. It was very spacious clean and neat. Bathroom was also a good size and clean. Free wifi at a good speed for streaming video content. Location is very close to downtown - within walking distance. Next door is a 7-11 if you need anything.

Very impressed with my room and the staff. Slept like a baby, very clean and comfortable. Staff was sincerely friendly and super accommodating. Wish I could have stayed longer! Two restaurants in hotel, great valet service, great location in Kenmore Square. Will visit again.

Center of all the BU activity with great Red Sox emersion. Valet parking attendants wear team shirts and the room curtains have baseball stitching patterns. Being able to stroll up Comm Ave through BU campus completes the moment. Staff is very attentive and furnishings are very fresh. Wish we had starting staying there freshman year.

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
