Everything about this hotel is perfect! The service begins as soon as you drive up, and continues through your whole stay! The doormen, the front desk staff, the cleaning ladies, they are all impeccable. The morning room service coffee is delicious!
Don't miss out on the incredible restaurants either. Eastern Standard and Island Creek Oyster Bar are first class. Their food, wine lists and service are a perfect fit for a perfect hotel!

Room Tip: We got room 334, huge, corner, great view!

We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth due to its proximity to Boston University where our daughter is a student. The hotel is very charming and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. This is real old-world boutique hotel with all the updates and modern conveniences. The room was a comfortable size, there was a new flat screen tv, a very comfortable bed and newly updated bathroom with excellent products. It was a great experience and we will definitely stay there again.

The staff was nice but not overly personable. My husband forgot his AAA card and they did not want to offer us the extra 5% off at check in, a bigger deal was made about this than I found necessary. They wanted us to get a copy of the card emailed to them- with nobody home this was impossible!I did not love the hotel entrance that you had to go up a set of stairs but the furnishings and such were lovely. I liked the key access in the elevators this gave a nice sense of security. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was very nice. The room was very comfortable, the only thing I did not love was the bed scarf and skirt but the furniture in general was nice. We did not receive turn down which I was surprised about and there was no coffee in the morning in the room or lobby. We did receive a nice note from the hotel for our anniversary and a bottle of wine. The FRESH bathroom products and water pressure in the shower were my favorite parts. My husband was a bit disturbed when he grabbed a bottle of the water from the mini bar(no price list in site) and was charged $7 for it- this seems outrageous! Most nice hotels are offering complimentary water these days from my experience. Overall, a nice hotel but did not feel any warmth from the staff, which I have experienced at other hotels. Will probably try something else next time I am in Boston

Because of work, I travel to Boston twice a month and stay at this amazing place. This is not just comfortable but everything about this place is unmatched. The service, the luxury, the rooms and the amenities: a class apart! If i were to pick up on something, it would be the internet connectivity which becomes overloaded and unreachable with the number of guests lodged.
