“Fun times in Beantown”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

The Hotel Commonwealth was the perfect location for a long weekend in Boston. We were attending orientation at BU, a baseball game at Fenway, and apartment shopping in Back Bay. Everything was with in walking distance. Although it is pricey, accommodations are comfortable and the staff is excellent. Well worth the price!

Beautiful hotel in a great area. We loved our room with a view of Fenway Park. Everything was spotlessly clean and in great condition. I had called a few times before we arrived and everyone was so polite and helpful that my expectations for the hotel were very high - and they delivered! They asked if we would like a Keurig in our room, YES, restocked with coffee and tea everyday :-) They knew we were traveling with a baby and had a refrig in the room as well. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked a ton of questions about using the T and walking to different areas and they always steered us in the right direction. There is a T station 20 feet outside of the hotel. You can easily walk to Newbury Street, the Prudential Center and Fenway from this hotel. We had to call housekeeping for 2 different things (pack N play and pillows) both times they were at our room within 5 minutes with what we needed. Housekeeping was very friendly as were the door men. We traveled with our 3 kids ages 11, 9 and 2. They loved to hotel and especially the comp computer room off of the lobby. We look forward to staying at the Hotel Commonwealth on future trips to Boston. Thanks for a great stay!!!

Room Tip: If you are a Red Sox fan, get a Fenway Room. Theres nothing like waking up to the park every mornin...

We recently went on a college tour with our son to visit Harvard, Princeton, Yale and Columbia. Our first stop was Boston, where we stayed at Hotel Commonwealth. After our stay at this hotel, no others could compare! From the wonderful reservation agent, to the friendly doorman, concierge, front desk staff and management...everyone was so welcoming and helpful. The beds were great, too! I also need to mention their restaurant, Island Creek Oyster Bar. The selection of oysters were marvelous and my husband made it his personal goal to try oysters in every restaurant across the four states...none could compare. We had rented a car for the trip, but it was unnecessary while at Hotel Commonwealth. The hotel is so conveniently located. It is the ONLY place to stay in Boston! We now know first hand why they are rated #1 In Boston. --Vicki K.

The Hotel Commonwealth is one of those lovely establishments where you will be delighted and impressed by the service. My family adored the staff and our suite with a separate sitting area was very nice indeed. They went out of their way to help my mom with an issue she was having with her portable oxygen equipment. Great location, good restaurants and of course Fenway Park is nearby. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Stay on the Commonwealth Ave side!

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.
