“Really nice...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Though only in Boston for a short visit, this was truly a wonderful experience - great staff, friendly environment, really lovely room and comfortable bed, and probably the best eggs benedict that I have had in a very long while... I would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel without reservation, and will certainly be back.

Room Tip: High was certainly peaceful...

This hotel deserves it's superlative reputation. The staff are so friendly and helpful to make sure that your stay is perfect. Before we arrived at the hotel, we informed them of our impending 25th wedding anniversary during our stay and were absolutely delighted to find out that we had been upgraded to a junior suite room. The hotel itself is in an excellent location, just on top of Kenmore T station which is so convenient for travelling downtown. It is also just opposite some small takeaway restaurants for coffee and bagels etc. Dining at the Eastern Standard Restaurant was a highpoint of our stay as it was brimming with atmosphere, with a very friendly, efficient waiter service. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Boston.

My fiancé and I absolutely love Boston. If you're planning to visit Boston or just wanting a place to getaway, Hotel Commonwealth is definitely the perfect place to stay. We stayed just for a weekend to celebrate my fiancé's birthday. I wish we could of stayed longer! We had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding, the staff went above and beyond my expectations. Just ask and you shall receive! They accommodated every single request I made. My fiancé and I were extremely happy with the service. We ate at both restaurants (Island Oyster Bar and Eastern Standard) and they were both excellent, very yummy! The rooms are beautiful, spacious and very cozy. The room and bathroom were clean and had great amenities. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this hotel.

I usually book with the major franchises to avoid any surprises but couldnt find any that fit my requirements so I took a chance and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were beautifully appointed, clean and large. The restaurants were both very good and the service we received from all was exceptional. It is not an inexpensive hotel but we defintely received our money's worth!
