Travellers' Choice
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. Modern 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.

I have stayed at Hotel Commonwealth in the past, and it's a great location. This stay, there were some of the great aspects of the hotel, but also some things that were disappointing. The positives: great location, room with a view of Fenway Park (not the field itself but still cool), very comfortable beds, Malin + Goetz toiletries (love these). The negatives: No coffee (either in-room or on-premises), stayed two nights and despite the fact that we were out of the room all day with the "service please" tag on the door, nobody came into the room to make the beds, clean, or replenish towels/toiletries. The shower curtain in our room also looked to have some sort of coffee stain on it so it was hard to tell if it was dirty or just stained. In any case, a bit disappointing.

Dont book this hotel ever False advertising NO ROOM has a Fenway view per the manager You will pay close to 300 dollars a night for a view of the back of the highway with tagging. Never will you view Fenway. Management did nothing to accommodate our inconvenience.

Dear carolhD7095PA, I am sorry you did not enjoy your time with us. As explained, none of our rooms view the field at Fenway Park, simply the outside of the stadium.

I love staying here. Used to stay down the street, but the staff and facilities beat out neighboring facilities. They are also great as I've stayed there, but Commonwealth is my new favorite. I will divulge I am a hotel gm. I find commonwealth well managed as the property and guest services have been great. I checked in late tonight and Joseph P. On front desk was accommodating. Keep up the great work over here. Times are tough, but you guys really make a difference. -g
