"Great Hotel Centrally Located"
Fantastic experience. Staff was friendly. Many amenities are available by request. Centrally located with a ton of restaurants within walking distance. 2 blocks from Fenway park. Subway stop outside of the hotel makes traveling around the city very easy. Very safe. Within walking distance of river trails.

"Amazing Hotel!"
The Hotel Staff was very friendly and welcoming. They had baseball cards and a baseball for my son to play with while we checked in. In walking distance from Fenway Park and great restaurants in the area.

"Nice stay"
The hotel was clean all staff very friendly .. Only thing that surprised me was the bill under my door for $95 for valet parking fee ! You drive up and the very friendly staff jumps to your car opens up the door without knowing I was paying $45 a day .. Upset about not seeing the charge on Expedia as well as the staff not informing me ..

"Just OK"
The location can't be beat - this is a great hotel if you are attending a Red Sox game! Unfortunately, I can't give a higher rating because of a few things that made my stay less-than-optimal. There was a problem with their broiler or something which resulted in no hot water, and I was forced to take A VERY COLD shower. My guest room (Rm 544) was on the top floor in the rear - no view - and must have been next to the building's AC ventilation system or something. There was a loud and consistent "thrumming" sound throughout the night that kept me up - it sounded as if I were sleeping in an engine room! There is also an electronic tablet that is intended to replace hard copy menus and other hotel information that is typically provided in your hotel room - while I commend the technological effort, the tablet wasn't updated to reflect my guest information - if the tablet isn't registered to a new guest, then access to the menus and hotel information screens are disabled (!). Finally, I think the hotel staff at the front desk were a little undertrained. It was a Sunday summer day with a big game vs. the Yankees so I suppose it was a bit busier than normal. I like the Hotel Commonwealth, but I think the Westin Copley is a good alternative if you can get a good rate there.

"Delightful stay on a hot summer weekend"
Our 34th anniversary. Room with a view of Fenway Park. Frankie at the door was a delight. And Nick at reception is everything the reviews say and more! Very clean hotel, lots of plush linens and it is very nice to have glasses instead of plastic to drink from. Only 2 very small negatives. Long time to get hot water (we were on the 4th floor) and the TV is not high definition.

"Beautiful Boston Hotel"
Admittedly this was my first time in Boston, so I have no other local hotels to compare against, but I can say it was hands down one of, if not THE best hotel I've stayed in over the course of my travels. The staff were all incredibly helpful and courteous. The hotel itself was beautiful and modern with very spacious rooms. I can easily say Hotel Commonwealth will be my go to hotel for any future visits to Boston.

"Boston delight"
Great location! Clean hotel with adorable interior (love the Boston terrier pics in the lobby). Rooms were large by city standards and the water pressure in the shower was wonderful after a long day of exploring the city. Located right next to the Kenmore T station for transport all over Boston and around the corner from Fenway Park. My only complaint was the constant humming/whirring I could hear- not sure if T station below caused the noise or if it was a hotel issue.

"Nice Hotel"
The Hotel Commonwealth overall was a good comfortable stay and positive experience. This location is good, with two really good connecting restaurants. The rooms were comfortable and clean. This was my first trip so I can only speak of the Jr Suite, but it was plenty of room with a nice view from the 4th floor. This being said there were a few odd things about the room/hotel. This must be the first room I've ever stayed in a hotel that didn't have ice buckets and a phone next to the bed wasn't standard. The staff was professional and accommodating and sent me an ice bucket. Also I felt it strange that a hotel this size only having one ice machine on one floor. (3rd) The hotel has a subway entrance, several stores including a Starbucks that's available from the outside entrance. Both restaurants and an additional bar does have in-hotel access. The hotel doesn't have coffee provided even at the lobby reading areas that I also thought was odd. You can order a pot of coffee and other nice room service selections to your room at reasonable in room delivered prices. Also my room had an empty fridge & safe that was really convenient.

"Fenway View, I think not"
The hotel was very nice and the staff friendly and helpful. Just two items that I was not happy with: 1) we booked a Fenway room that supposedly overlooked the ballpark, but the hotel's expansion construction blocked the view. I believe the hotel should have made this known and reduced the price of the room. 2) we stayed 2-nights, the first night we valet parked 2-cars, but the 2nd-night we only valet parked one car. I was given a bill that reflected both cars had been valet parked for 2-nights. The desk clerk happily adjusted the bill without argument, but it should not have happened in the first place.

"Worth the price"
Stayed for one night with my girlfriend for a Friday night Red Sox game. Based my decision purely on the fact that it was right next to the green line and a stones throw from Fenway. Was greeted at the door, greeted at the desk, and check in literally took less than a minute since I booked through hotels.com. The room was very nice, super clean, well laid out. Had checked in around 4 and had showered before going out. Came back after the game to find the room had been turned over again, which was awesome attention to detail. Was it pricey? Yeah. But was the room and service great? Yes. Would I book a room there again? Without a doubt!!

We got upgraded to the executive suite cause we checked in early. The service was phenomenal. The rooms were really nice. The restaurant right outside the hotel was so good (try the Homefries). And there's a lot of shopping to do within walking distance. I will definitely be staying here again next year.

It began with the hotel under construction so you have to walked down the block in the cold. They gave up our room (we arrived at 6:30) telling us if we would have booked directly with them we could have had the room we booked. After I explain I wanted a king bed they put us in a junior suite which had broken drapes and a hole in the shower ceiling. Doorman was great!
