The location was great, just steps away from the "T" stop. A short walk from Newberry Street and many other places of interest. I can't say enough about the staff, everyone was awesome! The front desk staff were friendly always had a smile and called me by my name! Everyone was very accommodating. My travel companion is on a special diet, and a microwave and fridge for were provided in the room in a short moment (and a Kuerig coffee pot with lots of coffee and tea pods with all the necessary accompaniments for me).
The Fenway room was awesome! We were able to observe the park and all the fans milling about in the stands as there were several games during our stay. The room was always clean with fresh linen daily and plenty of fresh towels and personal supplies even down to Q-tips and cotton balls! The concierge Samuel was very helpful booking side trips and mapping out walking/T directions for us. The hotel sent us a lovely bottle of wine and chocolates on our arrival, such a nice touch! One day we decided to stay in and watch a video (quite exhausted from the prior day) Samuel, the concierge sent us a bottle of red wine and a huge bowl of popcorn. All-in-all it was a lovely stay and when in Boston I will always return to the Hotel Commonwealth!!!♥

Room Tip: The Fenway rooms have 2 queen beds and a great view of the historic Fenway Stadium. Call ahead for...

Great location for BU. The service and friendliness was exceptional. Valet had our car to the front entrance very quickly. No coffee maker but room service showed up at the selected time with coffee. The only thing that I wish would change is the overnight price for parking. But, with that said, most Boston parking is expensive. Since we were in Boston for our daughter's Freshmen Orientation at BU, we will most likely be staying at this hotel for the next four years.

Was in Boston on business and wished I had been able to spend more time at the Commonwealth! Lovely hotel with very pleasant staff, hotel impeccably maintained, gorgeous rooms, and perfectly situated to enjoy downtown Boston, and with transit right nearby.

A thoughtful reimagining of what a Boston hotel can be, Hotel Commonwealth unhinges luxury from its traditional definition to bring guests urban vibrance and the ultimate in unscripted hospitality, right in Kenmore Square. That our stylish spot flanks Boston's beloved Fenway Park shines bright on its list of perks, as does being in easy embrace of the city's prominent academic, medical, technology areas. Offering notably ample guestrooms, an authentic "of-service" culture, and food so good even the locals are loyal, our hotel has distinguished itself as a Boston favorite. Newly conceived interiors remain faithful to the hotel's legendary welcoming feel, blending effortless style with considered comforts to create a relaxed urban destination. The result?
