My husband and I both work in the hotel industry and travel frequently for business and leisure. We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth on NY Eve in a jr. suite on the 4th floor. Check-in was smooth and friendly. The valet and door staff were great.
The room was phenomenal. The space was well thought out, pleasantly decorated and the bathroom was spacious with plenty of room for toiletries (the hotel provides Fresh brand amenities which are fantastic); the bed was cozy (great blanket) and the sitting area was as comfortable as one I'd have in my home.
The linens all smelled like they'd been washed in nice detergent, not the normal bleachy smell of hotel linens. The showerhead was great. We had a great night's sleep. The hallways and service staff were quiet and we did not hear any street noise at all.
Room service was very, very good and Eastern Standard restaurant was very good for breakfast the next day. There is a "T" stop right outside the entrance to the hotel so it was easy to get around the city. It was a great stay and I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
