We were returning from Martha's Vineyard and had just one night in Boston. Hotel Commonwealth was the perfect place to stay, right by everything and the staff was very kind. We were upgraded to a corner room that had a great view of Fenway Park (my husband is a huge baseball fan so he was very happy). With the short... More

We were upgraded to a nice junior suite. The hotel seems older, but has been updated with well-appointed decor and charming accessories. The bathroom, especially the shower, could use renovation. Can't beat the location.

We chose this hotel as our friends son was getting married there and booked for four nights,so we were disappointed to be given a room which overlooked the air conditioning units and flat roof. We refused the room and for 40$ a night extra were upgraded to a 'suite' with a view over the front of the hotel . The... More

Very unique and stylish décor makes this place so cozy and inviting. Doesn't remind you of the usual corporate hotel décor and front desk looks like a library with retro style lounge sitting. Location is great and walkable to Fenway Park, Mass Avenue and Newberry street. Rooms are very large and I highly recommend this hotel for business or personal... More

Everything was A+. It was easy to get to the hotel, and close to the thing's we had planned to do. Furthermore, Concierge MacDonald went above and beyond helping me to arrange a Red Sox game weekend, and I can't wait to plan my next trip!!

large rooms, modern and classic, with a twist of elegant modernity. Excellent beddings, the restaurants are delicious. Perfect location near Boston University and Fenway. Close to the heart of the city (Kenmore T station).

This was such a delightful stay. My husband and I unexpectedly had a night with friends in from Hong Kong for 24 hours and were treated like royalty at the Hotel Commonwealth. "The Loft" is exquisite. The view, pool table, fireplace and artwork were all fantastic. We will certainly be recommending this hotel to all of our friends and visitors... More

Very nice hotel in a convenient location. Rooms are very nice and large. We were upgraded to a suite which had a ton of room. Great bar underneath the hotel if you are looking for a night cap. Would stay here again.

This is the prime location if you are staying overnight to see a Red Sox game or going to a Fenway Park concert. A 5 minute walk to the park. Rooms are large compared to rooms for the same price at upscale hotels in Boston. The bar scene in the attached restaurant is great and you can charge everything to... More

Loved our stay here. Came for a baseball game and got a room facing Fenway. Very neat. Hotel is very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel. There are several places to eat close to the hotel as well.

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
