We travel back to Boston annually and have stayed in MANY city hotels. This is one of the best! The location is great. The service outstanding. We had the Fenway Suite (two queen beds), the room was roomy, it was impeccably clean with luxury linens. We were on the 5th floor, it was quiet from street noise and room temperature comfortable; some of the […] older hotels have noisy heaters/air conditioners, not this one. Food from the attached restaurant was good as well. We will definitely look into staying here again, given the great price we got on Hotels.com! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
What a hotel! From the moment we arrived in our car until we left the next day, everything was top notch. The valet was friendly and efficient, check in was seamless and what a room! The bedding and bed were the best, the bathroom luxurious, the room quiet and comfortable and superbly clean. Couldn't have chosen a better, more luxurious yet not pretentious, […] centrally located hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location location location!"
Location is excellent! Walking distance to everything or take the T with entrance just a few short steps from the front door. Taxis were hailed within seconds of requesting one. Taxi fees were reasonable too. Beautiful view of Fenway Park (take the tour even if you're not a Red Sox fan). Will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful all around"
Great place to stay in Boston. Very helpful staff. Full service. Also pet friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"visiting a school"
The people were genuine not practiced hotel actors with fake smiles . When a cab driver did not know where to take me, the door man had me jump in the hotel car and he took me to Simmons collage himself . The check in lady was very helpful in finding a place to eat . The bell man was good with the bags and in short the staff seemed to really like their […] jobs and want to help guests . The room was clean and quiet .I would reccomend this property and stay again . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice rooms, but valet, OUCH!"
Clean, convenient, very hospitable. $42 for overnight parking. I know I wasn't in Kansas, but that's steep for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Enjoyed our 15th anniversary at this hotel"
Everything about the hotel was fine, except that I consider the $42 charge (without tip) to park the car overnight to be exorbitant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great boutique hotel"
We loved this hotel and would stay here again. The restaurants are top notch and the rooms are lovely. You do have to ask for a coffee maker because they are not in the room. I walked to Dunkin Donuts up the street for coffee because I didn't know I could get a coffeemaker for the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was friendly and accomidatiing, always with a smile and willing to assist. Location couldn't have been better. Room was large, clean with all amentaties one would want and need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location for HOB"
Stayed a night for a concert at the House of Blues. Hotel has valet and in a great location. We walked right to the concert and the area was super clean and safe. The hotel itself was above and beyond what I expect. Classy without me feeling I didn't belong and the staff was really friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for families of BU students"
Excellent hotel. T stop is just outside the door so you can get anywhere easily. Great restaurants in and around hotel. Only thing missing is a blow dryer in the room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel experience !!!!"
My husband & I spent a wonderful night at the Hotel Commonwealth - room was the most comfortable I've ever experienced (they have thought of everything to make your stay very special). Location was perfect for visiting the museums. Dinner at the Island Creek restaurant lots of fun - sat at the bar and enjoyed delicious seafood and chatted with friendly […] bartender. Will definitely go back soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location and great service"
On our last night there was a party going on in an adjacent room. We had to call 3 times to complain. They did remedy the loud music issue, but the loud party noises remained. The next morning they took our restaurant charges off the bill, which we thought was fair compensation for the noise inconvenience. All in all beautiful hotel in a great location. […] We were also given a free room upgrade as part of Expedia's VIP program. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great experience at Hotel Commonwealth!"
We had a great experience at Hotel Commonwealth. The service was helpful and friendly. We received a free complimentary upgrade in rooms. The room was clean, spacious, and had lots of little, thoughtful amenities (bathrobe, iPod dock, easy access plugs, Q-tips). The area is great with access to the subway, restaurants, and bars. The only negative is […] that parking is valet only at $42. We opted for finding our own street parking and moving the car as needed. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel!

"Stay here if you are visiting Boston"
Very nice bell men. Willing to help with luggage and directions around town. Location is wonderful for walking to the sites and shops in the back bay. The room was large and comfortable. The pillows were plentiful. Subway stop is below the hotel. Making it easy to travel around town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel gets A+ for helpful and friendly service"
The hotel's location was perfect for me. It was within walking distance of Boston University, where my granddaughter is a student. We also were able to walk to Fenway Park and Newbury St. Commonweath Ave bus is in front of the hotel, the T Green line is next door.I would certainly come back to this hotel. The staff is A+ in terms of friendliness and […] helpfulness. They really went out of their way to be of service and always exceeded expectations. The lobby is very comfortable and cozy and the perfect place to meet up with others. This is a boutique hotel that provides a warm and personalized experience that larger, more polished hotels lack. I had a junior suite that was so spacious and comfortable that I felt sad to leave it at the end of my stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the Kenmore/Fenway area.

"Great location, great rooms, great service..."
Great location, great rooms, great decoration. Upon check in to the hotel they kindly upgraded me to a suit. It was lovely. They had everything in the room and around the hotel that I might need and staff was very helpful. It is a good base to experience urban Boston life on foot. There are several great restaurants, cafes and shops walking distance […] from the hotel. I will definitely come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Love the hotel. Ideal location for Boston University. Staff helpful and friendly. Free internet which i really appreciate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A must stay in Boston!"
Aside from the great location and beauty of the hotel, the service was out of this world! Doormen were so pleasant and helpful. We kept our bags there a day before checking into the hotel, were upgraded upon arrival to view of fenway. Location is literally STEPS from the T line, so only about a 25 minute trek from Logan Airport to the hotel for around […] $5. We could walk to all the shopping and fun stuff from the hotel too. From the doormen to the main desk and even the housekeeping team, I can't compliment the hotel staff enough! Great job. Would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best, most luxurious hotel in Boston"
The hotel was gorgeous inside-and-out and the staff was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated and felt like home. The furnishings were comfy and the room, including the bathroom, was immaculately clean. Little details completed the experience-- high-end toiletries, quality towels, plush slippers, and delicious […] room service breakfast. The location was excellent and convenient. Only a short walk from Newbury Street and Boston University, and subway is situated right next to the hotel entrance. Our dinner the Island Creek Oyster Bar within the hotel was wonderful. Overall, our stay was a memorable experience. Highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for touring Boston University"
This is a great location for touring Boston University or attending a game at Fenway Park. The staff bend over backwards to be of assistance and everyone is friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely place, but expensive. Great place to stay if you're going to Fenway. Excellent neighborhood-lots of good food. T station right next to the hotel. Can walk to MIT and Harvard.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fenway Park dream stay"
What a great hotel! The staff was so professional; & we go a free junior suit upgrade for no apparent reason, which was awesome! Food & beverages were brought to our room & it was all delicious. As usual, hotel comp. fridge stuff was expensive. All in all it was a great trip & we will be back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent and convenient spot in boston"
The hotel is beautiful and connected to two great restaurants. The room was very comfortable. The location was great - walked all over from there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed two nights and the place was flawless. The Eastern Standard restaurant was top notch. Only minor incidents were they forgot to book my car to the airport so paid for our taxi which was appreciated. One girl at the front desk who was younger with brown hair and a longer nose was snotty. But the rest of the staff were fantastic, gave us great tips […] on were to visit and were else to eat. The water power on the shower was amazingly strong and nice and hot. Was strange the room did not have HBO, Cinemax or Showtime but you could order one of 200 classic DVD's so that was impressive. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone going to Fenway. They put up with us Liverpool FC fans so they must be a fine crew and hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"All the comforts... and then some."
This is a FABULOUS hotel. It is impeccable and full of character. It has an “old Boston charm” about it, yet has significant and comfortable upgrades. It is right on Kenmore Square and only a block away from Fenway. For those thinking about renting a car, I wouldn’t. I rented a car during my 3 days in Boston, but didn’t need it. The hotel is right next […] to the Kenmore subway station and there’s also a bus stop right in front. The train will take you anywhere you need to go while in Boston. The staff in this hotel is second to none. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff and Hotel are top notch. Will stay again for sure. Ballpark views, not much of a view not worth that money but the suites are wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was an AWESOME experience! One, if not the nicest staff we have ever worked with. Hotel Commonwealth is the REAL DEAL! We look forward to returning!Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best hotel"
I can't say enough about how impressed my husband and I were with the hotel. From the moment we exited the taxi and the doormen opened the door, we felt like we were the most important people in the world to the hotel staff. The color scheme, the smell, the comfortable pillows, the Fresh toiletries in the restroom, it was all amazing. Can't say enough […] about our stay and how much we would recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A must stay Hotel."
It is the best Hotel in Boston. It is a charming Hotel overlooking Kenmore Square on the front side and Fenway Park on the backside. We pulled up front and valet took our SUV and brought our bags inn. Check in was quick and friendly. We were given complimentary glasses of champagne and a free upgrade to a larger suite. The suite was larger, beautifully […] decorated and extremely quiet. The hotel and my room were immaculate. I cannot thank them enough for a wonderful weekend and will definitely be staying there again soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
