Without question, the Hotel Commonwealth is a true gem in Boston. The Kenmore T station is right outside the front door, which easily gives you access to all parts of Boston. Both on site restaurants have fantastic food, cocktails and amazing service. The rooms are...More

My friend and I were in Boston for Saint Patrick's day this year and decided to book a reservation at The Hotel Commonwealth. We are from upstate NY in the mountains and after a 5 hour drive I must say..........We were blown away. This hotel...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports
mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.

I've stayed in both rooms. I recently stayed in the Fenway room for 2 nights with my husband and 16 year old daughter. There wasn't a game (not baseball season quite yet), and therefore it was very quiet. It overlooks the Mass Pike and there's a view of Fenway Park. I've previously stayed in a Kenmore room and I had no complaints but it does overlook Comm Ave where there is traffic at times and you can occasion here some noise (but nothing that would keep you awake). If I had to choose one or the other, I'd pick the Fenway room again, although you really can't go wrong with both.
