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. Modern 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.

I always prefer to stay at Hotel Commonwealth when I visit Boston. The hotel is a gem of a property, in a fantastic location. You are close to back bay, Fenway park and BU. The rooms are extremely spacious, meticulously clean, and comfortable, as you would expect from a luxury property. The staff and the service are what make this the best hotel in Boston. The HC team is incredibly attentive and adds a genuine personal touch. They have mastered the intersection between authenticity and superior service. I was also very impressed with the precautions that this hotel has taken in light of COVID-19. I felt incredibly safe during my stay. Big thanks to Rezarta, Corey, Chris at the front desk, and Frankie at the door for making our trip to Boston so wonderful. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!

The Hotel is nice, reasonable in price, and fairly close to most things in Boston. Fenway Park is two blocks away, easy access to Highway and close to a number of Restaurants nearby. The rooms are comfortable, this is not a luxury Hotel, but it its middle of the road.

Hotel CommonWealth is what one would expect from a four star hotel... great location.. (very close to Fenway Park), large quiet rooms, wonderful staffs who are always there to make your stay pleasant. No matter what the needs were throughout the days and nights... One such member of their team that stands out is Christopher E. (Assistant Front Office Manager) Our trip to Boston wasn’t a planned event... it was out of necessity. Our son had an accident during the day and requires emergency surgery the same day. Like all parents, my wife and I freaked out and basically dropped everything when we got the call and started driving up to Boston... a 4 1/2 hour drive... we had no change of clothes nor did we have a place to stay. During our drive up, my wife picked the hotel that was closest to the hospital that my son was in and called....Hotel Commonwealth. That’s when Christopher showed the compassionate side of this four star hotel. Christopher took his time to understand our situation, listen to our needs, made mental notes... exchanged emails and made our stay much more pleasant as we were able to focus on what was important... which was with our son. Christopher was able to setup us a junior suite as it was utmost important, so that my wife and I can both work while we were attending to our son’s immediate needs. Christopher in many ways, added a human touch to our visit to the hotel. Thank you Christopher for your patience and understanding throughout our stay! You are truly a testament of what it is to be a Front Office Manager and a wonderful human being! See you soon and stay safe! Richard

Richard, I am sorry to hear about your son. I hope he is feeling better. Thank you very much for taking the time to make special mention of Christopher. We are very fortunate to have him on our team as he is passionate about hospitality and ensuring our guests are well taken care of. I will be sure to share this with my entire team to make sure Chris receives the recognition he deserves. We hope you will stay with us again the next time you are in Boston.

The room was not as clean as it should be. There were food crumbs in the fridge, and the bed frame had white liquid dried on it. They did not have a bed protector. Woke up and the mattress was showing. Requested a Keurig and they brought us a cracked one on a tray held together with scotch tape. That’s something you’d expect from a hotel in the ghetto, not a 4 diamond award hotel. A switch for the light by the couch did not turn on the light. Very poor water pressure in the shower.
