I have stayed in what are considered the finest hotels in Boston downtown, Beacon Hill and Back Bay. I've stayed at the Long Wharf Marriott, Back Bay Hilton, The Colonnade, Omni Parker House and more. I am done looking. The Hotel Commonwealth met and exceeded all of my needs. The staff at every stage of our stay was top notch; from reservations to valets. The location is perfect: walking distance to Fenway, T stop at the hotel (underneath but could not hear or feel it) surrounded by BU etc, more restaurants than you can try, Newberry Street shopping a few blocks away, easy on and off route into city....! The room was spacious and comfortable. Great lounging chairs and ottoman, huge desk area, awesome beds, ....! The bathroom was HUGE. My only two complaints are that there was no hook(s) on the bath door and no fan in the bathroom so mirrors were always fogged, etc. Two phenomenal restaurants downstairs, a make your own frozen yogurt bar, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts...all in same block. Unbelievably fast elevators (4)! Never waited for an elevator once. Pressed button and doors opened...kind of spooky. Valet takes away your car with ease. Brings it back with even greater ease. I wish I could give this hotel six stars.
