Beautiful boutique hotel, conveniently located near a T-Stop and a 10 min walk to Newbury street. We were allowed to check in early and were given a corner room with a view of Fenway Park. Friendly staff, free wifi, clean and modern rooms. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

The hotel is in a great location and very easy to get to Fenway and around the city. There is a lot within walking distance and using Uber to get to other locations is the best plan. If we ever plan to visit Fenway again we would stay here.

Great location, rooms are nicely appointed and extremely clean and fresh. Eastern Standard is attached to the hotel which is really a plus. Great restaurant. I stay there for business at least 2 times a month and the service and experience are always very good.

Comfortable hotel situated centrally. Nice location right opposite Fenway Park and plenty of eating places within walking distance. Room was clean and look liked it had recently been renovated. Free wifi worked great throughout the hotel and enjoyed the craft beer selection in the bar downstairs, although would have been nice if they could have featured some local brews.

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
