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.

Neighbourhood
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.

Super pro to this hotel is the staff. From the valet watching our rental car for 10 min while we ran our bags up to check in, to the front desk staff who went out of their way to do anything & everything to make our stay enjoyable - I can’t recommend this hotel enough. Location

Loved the location being walking distance to food and shopping on Newbury and Fenway Park. Clean room with big bathroom was impressive. We appreciated the quiet atmosphere with friendly staff during our stay.

I love this hotel! It's that simple. The staff is very hospitable and the rooms are amazing. I love the fact they are in the heart of Fenway and Kenmore. The train is footsteps away and the buses are across the street. The room is spacious and comfortable. Screens in the

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.

"Rooms that face Fenway also have highway trafffic - just FYI"
"Ask for a room on the 5th floor away from the elevators."
"Upper floors on Fenway side have great view of the ballpark. Expect to pay more on days the Sox are playing."
"Fenway Park view...maybe a bit noisy, but worth the view!"
"Get a room facing Kenmore Square"
