We chose the Commonwealth for a three night stay because of its high Trip Advisor rating and its proximity to Fenway Park. The hotel delivered in every area. Really friendly staff, immaculate standards of cleanliness, a spacious room with a comfortable bed and good shower. It is flanked by two great restaurants, we ate breakfast and a lunch in Eastern Standard which were both excellent and enjoyed a last night dinner in the Island Creek seafood restaurant which was better than good. Our waiter Josh enabled us to try a range of dishes, the oysters were really fresh and tasty, the lobster and beef short rib pasta was sensational. He recommended two white wines which accompanied the meal perfectly. All in all a terrific stay which was topped by the Red Sox beating Detroit 20 - 4 and scoring 8 home runs for the first time at Fenway since 1977. Life doesn't get much better.
