"Great location, great hotel"
We've stayed at the Marriott Back Bay several times, but this was our first time at the Hotel Commonwealth. We love a good cocktail, and since both Eastern Standard and The Hawthorne (not to mention Island Creek Oyster Bar) are all actually IN the hotel, it was exceptionally convenient to both drink AND eat. Plus, it's a short walk to Prudential Center […] and Newbury Street if shopping is your thing. A fifteen minute walk got us to the Museum of Fine Arts where we took in both the great permanent exhibits AND the fantastic John Singer Sargent exhibit currently on display.

"We loved the Hotel Commonwealth"
From the minute we arrived we were greeted by an exceptional staff. From the door man, to Sean at the reservation desk everyone was friendly and exceeding efficient. We were given a glass of champagne to take up to our room at check-in. The room was very pleasant and large and the bed was so comfortable, with beautiful linens. Even after checking the […] room twice before checkout, I managed to leave a pair of boots. One phone call and they are being Federal Expressed to me......the next morning after my call. We loved the Hotel Commonwealth. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"All Things Red Sox"
Fun hotel, lovely accommodations and very friendly staff. While it's a bit out of the way for Back Bay shopping and restaurants it's a great neighborhood, close to Fenway with plenty of good dining nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the house of blues"
I wanted to find a convenient place near the house of blues. It was comfortable and clean and we loved the view of fenway park from our room. I would have liked to have some complimentary coffee for the price of the stay, but overall we really found the hotel top rate. Very comfortable beds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best hotel I've been to"
Hotel Commonwealth is the best hotel that I've been to. It has wonderful environment and perfect service. The staffs are very friendly and well-trained! I would like to visit again if I go to Boston.Genuine Expedia guest review
It would be nice to mention the 42$ parking feeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Gem close to Fenway"
Stayed here for a reunion of high school friends. We not only had a great time visiting Boston, Hotel Commonwealth made it comfortable and easy for us to access the city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good but not worth the price"
Good hotel but not really worth the price. The hotel staff was nice and the overall hotel was neat and clean. Good location to subway and of course the baseball park. However the shower wasn't working very well, took forever for hot water and believe it or not had too much water pressure it kinda hurt to shower. The walls are paper thin and we could […] clearly hear other ppl in their rooms and their activities. The room wasn't very well lit and could hardly see in it. No HD channels and I was charged for a drink I never had. Just felt for the price it should of been much better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love this Place"
Wonderful Hotel. The staff are kind, professional, and engaging. The rooms are large, spotless, and well designed. I have stayed at many hotels and this one beats them all. As soon as we arrived, the doorman parked our car for us and made us feel welcome. At check in, we were greeted with the friendliest staff who made us feel right at home. The offered […] us both bottled refreshments and their signature sublime watermelon water. Our suitcases arrived five minutes later without any delay or hassle. About 10 minutes later, the concierge called our room to make sure we had everything we needed. Can you believe that? At every other hotel, I have to call if I want something. These people really know how to deliver quality service. Even after telling the doormen that I was a Yankee fan, they still treated me well!!! My twins(age 16) said the Hotel looked like a "place you see in the movies" I will never stay at another hotel while in Boston. And, I will be there often to visit my son who is a freshman at Boston College. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a lovely old hotel. The furnishings are traditional, but the hotel has tried to stay up-to-date. The bathroom was large and well-appointed. The room was spacious and I really liked the semi-separate sitting area (there were drapes dividing the bed from the easy chairs and desk space. It was nice that there were 2 tvs. But it makes no sense to […] have only 1 phone and that one is by the desk. There was no phone by the bed. This was complicated by the crazy "George" sound system in the room. While it is nice to have the ability to play one's iPod through the sound system and perhaps wake to it - the system was virtually impossible to understand and program. The small "remote" extension of the system with a clock by the bed had no instructions on it. The instructions on the base unit were hard to reach and even harder to understand. It was very difficult to program a wake up/alarm. Yet with the only phone on the desk I didn't want to have to leap up from the bed in the darkened room to answer a wake-up call. So I used my phone alarm but that was also difficult because all the extra electric outlets and charging station were on the desk (also only for the 30 pin iPhone/iPod - not the new iPhone 5 style). Had to move one of the bedside tables around to find an empty outlet. Advice to hotel - scrub the weird George system and put in an easier to understand iHome or other radio/alarm/iPod-iPhone sound system, phone and lamps by beds w/ electric outlets in base.

I have stayed at Hotel Commonwealth a few times before-- I even have a future booked already. this time i did notice the rooms and the hotel looked a tad weary. The staff was very helpful and when i asked to change my room because the elevator backed up to it, they did so even though i know the hotel was pretty full that weekend. The room next to the […] elevator was completely unacceptable with the noice it created- and i never complain! all in i like the location next to the T and the neighborhood is a great location. i loved the complementry champagne at check in! The staff is wodnerful! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous hotel, fabulous location"
This was my first stay at this hotel and I would definitely stay here again. The Kenmore station is right outside the hotel which made getting around the city really easy. Staff were friendly and helpful. I had a Fenway room and even though I'm not a baseball fan, it was pretty cool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Closest hotel to Fenway"
I booked this hotel for my boss, who was in Boston for business meetings and to attend the Sox game with clients. They gave him a great room with a clear view of the scoreboard at Fenway Park - he sent me a photo from his phone. He also really appreciated the proximity to the T line. Overall, he was pleased with his room and his stay at the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel. Great staff. Great neighborhood."
The staff was exceptional and the hotel location was perfect for going to a baseball game.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to BU"
We code a junior suite, which was roomy and comfortable. It' nice when someone wants to nap, or stay up reading late at night. Nicely appointed rooms and a great oyster bar on site.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the price."
Yes, it's nice to be right on Comm Ave, especially if you have a student at BU or game to attend at Fenway, but I was expecting more for the $. The room wasn't "wow". Not that big. Couldn't remove anything from the fridge to keep my own items cold or I'd have to pay a fee.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Always a great stay!"
Great location, Great rooms & Great staff! The beds are clean and comfortable. The rooms also have a phone charging station and an iPod/Radio which is very convenient!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome, Hotel,Staff and Location"
Great Hotel, Staff and location 2 blocks from Fenway, Newberry Street a short walk, great restaurants on the same block, the T is 100' from the front door so all of Boston is minutes away if there is anything you need to know ask the bell men very helpful. Our car was easily accessible not that we needed it just forgot a few things. We just got Back […] from 3 weeks in Napa and San Francisco stayed at many 4 star hotels none compared Hotel Commonwealth. We will be Back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to Fenway, not far from shopping"
Very nice hotel. Valet parking much a bit pricey at $42. Would be nice to have a coffee maker in the room. Was very pleased overall with the comfort and quality of the hotel. The two gentleman at the front desk were extremely nice. All the employees were friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed at Hotel Commonwealth for a college trip in Boston. Great service and our room had a good view of fenway park. Front desk was helpful with dinner suggestions that were only a short walk away. The hotel is also right next to a the T on the green line, which was useful for longer trips. Boston U and Northeastern are just short walks away from the […] hotel and Boston College is on the green line that runs in frobt of the hotel. Had a great stay and would reccomend to any one going to Boston. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Make your reservation now! This is a new hotel with very comfortable beds. You can walk to the Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park. We used the gym and the popular outdoor running paths.

"Service is not a priority."
The hotel itself is beautiful... However, having to wait an hour for a bottle of wine from room service after needing to remind them multiple times of our order was quite irritating. The excuse was "we're running a little behind" as the Eastern Standard Restaurant attached deals with all room service orders during the two reminder calls we placed...good […] luck if the restaurant is hopping the night you stay! The DVD player in the room was lacking proper wiring and could not be used. After a maintainence man came to the room after another 45 minute wait from placing the initial call, we were told they couldn't help us because apparently Boston is a hard city to find A/V wiring or a working dvd player to satisfy guest paying an expensive amount per night for comfort and service. The hotel may look nice inside and out, but the service isn't worth the price at all. I do not recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice stay close to BU and shopping"
Great location walking distance to BU and Newberry Street and right on the subway line with a subway entrance next to the front door. The room was excellent with a very comfortable mattress, separate sitting area, classy furniture, and marble floors and counters. One of the best surprises was the Island Creek Oyster Company restaurant next door to […] the hotel. I went there for convenience and had no expectations. Suprisingly, it was one of the best seafood meals I have ever eaten. I subsequently found it online with exceptional reviews. Don't miss it if you like seafood. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Convenience and friendly staff."
This hotel is literally right next to the stairway leading to a subway stop. So if you are visiting Boston for an event near a Green Line train stop, this hotel may be a great choice. The staff is very friendly, especially at the front desk. The room is pretty ordinary but clean, nothing much to say about it - you do get free Wi-Fi. There are places […] to eat literally as you walk out the front door, including fast food places, so you won't be hungry wondering where to get food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
