We went to the Bedtime Stories Event at the Hotel Commonwealth with our young children. My husband and I were greeted with glasses of champagne and our kids were given backpacks of goodies which they continue to play with. The room was beautiful and the staff was very kind. We had room service for dinner and the food was delicious. The evening events and pancake breakfast the next morning for the whole family were fun and memorable. We look forward to going again next year!

Room tip: My kids loved looking down on Kenmore Square. The room was very quiet.

I stayed for two nights here recently and from the moment I pulled up to the hotel it was a wonderful experience. The staff were kind and prompt and very helpful.

Stayed in a Fenway room with a king sized bed. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was a great size. It was very clean save for a few stains on the couch but that wasn't unexpected.

The bathroom was a very good size with plenty of counter space and shelving for my belongings. The bathroom products provided were very nice as well.

Ordered room service twice and both times they were prompt and the food from Eastern Standard was delicious. Very helpful that the room service is 24 hours.

I plan on making this my go to hotel whenever I'm in the area.

I visited Hotel Commonwealth in Boston last October. Our stay there, enhanced our trip in so many ways. The staff always so helpful and cheery enabled us to feel really cared for while staying here. The room was just lovely. Exceptionally clean every day (we stayed a week). After a busy day in the city, returning to The Hotel Commonwealth felt like a relief, a coming home feeling. The room was exceptionally large, with a large bath room as well. Everything one would need, hair dryer, ironing board/iron, plush bath robes. Even a beautiful wooden handled umbrella a thoughtful touch. Koreig coffee maker in room also nice touch, which was restocked every day. The bed and pillows very comfortable and nice linens gave us a needed rest every night. Chocolate on pillows and linen turn down every night was lovely. I was most impressed with the General Manager, who took a personal interest in his guests. We ran into him one day as we were exciting the hotel. He inquired about our stay. We told him we were on the way to Cape Cod for a couple of days and would return to the hotel to finish our stay in Boston. He took the time to stop and make sure we had the name of a wonderful hotel on the cape, gave us his business card with that general managers name and called ahead for us to tell them he personally referred us. Now that is service! And by the way, his referral was just perfect and due to his help, we had another great stay on the cape. The Hotel Commonwealth stored our extra luggage while we were gone and when we returned to finish our stay they had our new room all ready, stocked with the things we liked. It was wonderful. A mention about the location. Our room literally over looked Fenway Park. What fun! The rooms are quiet. Right next door just feet away is the subway entrance which helped us to safely and quickly get in and out of the city. The neighborhood is lovely for walking as well. If you don't want to dine or take the time for breakfast at the hotel, McD's is literally 3 doors down. I have tried to detail as much as I can so the next time in Boston you will choose this wonderful hotel, as I will as well! Thank you trip advisor for leading me to this fantastic hotel!

Every single employee we encountered was both professional and genuinely nice. The rooms are large and comfortable, and the free wifi is the sort of amenity that really matters. The location (two steps from the Kenmore stop on the green line) is convenient and the restaurant (Eastern Standard) is reasonable and good.

We had a Fenway room for 2 nights with a rollaway bed for one of our children. The room was spacious even for 4 of us. It was a beautiful hotel and the bed and breakfast package allowed us $50 a day for breakfast in the restaurant downstairs, which was delicious and very filling.

Room tip: If you have children and don't mind sharing a room with them, this hotel has large rooms and will provide rollaway beds, not all the American hotels we enquired about would do this. It will save on paying for 2 rooms.
