This is the perfect hotel no matter what you were looking to do with your time in Boston. I grew up in the city and stay here every single time I get a chance to return to Boston even though I am a Starwood and Marriott platinum. The level of quality service, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and amazing location make...

We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth for a little weekend getaway. We had reserved a junior suite and were upgraded to an executive suite upon arrival. Our room was lovely. The staff was gracious and more than helpful. We will visit again!

From the street, the hotel looks unassuming, but that changes the moment you walk into the lobby. The décor is impeccable, the guest services staff was profession, helpful yet without the expected ere of bougie they deserved. The rooms were spacious, luxurious and comfortable.

Restaurants and 7-11 within a 3-min walk. Service - Never a line at the check-in counter. Staff is experienced and extremely helpful, also remembered us by name. Con: Water - This...

I've stayed at the Commonwealth three times recently and it's become a favorite. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with a large HD flatscreen TV. Service is very personal - I was welcomed 'back' on only my second visit. 24 hour convenience store right down the block. The Kenmore green line subway stop is literally in the building, making...

The location in Kenmore Square, adjacent to the subway, is excellent! The rooms are big, clean, & quiet. The front desk staff, the chamber maids, valets, doormen, were all courteous and helpful. Comfortable beds, dependable lifts, & clean carpets. Also adjacent to two very nice restaurants, the subway entrance, and very close to Lansdowne and Boylston streets.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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? A refreshingly real hotel where travel smart professionals and knowing influentials converge for inspiration and the unbridled joy of getting it right. This is Hotel Commonwealth. ... more   less
