I have to say I loved every minute of my stay at the Hotel Commonwealth... from being greeted by the doorman who assured me the weather would improve for the Red Sox game that night, to Nick at the front desk who greeted me by name when I walked up to sign in and then asked if we would like some bottled water, to the beautifully decorated clean and spacious room with wonderful linens and toiletries and a great view of the city - oh I could go on and on but suffice to say that every single employee of the hotel we encountered was polite, friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is a real gem. We met friends in the city for this weekend and they also stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth because we were there. We both remarked that we had read some of the mixed reviews of this hotel and were totally puzzled by them as our friends experience was the same as ours! We had a junior suite (521) on Friday the 13th - ha! and it was the best luck ever. Love you Hotel Commonwealth and can't wait to return.
PS if you want to eat at Island Creek Oyster book ahead. We did a week before and got one of the last reservations.
