    Underwhelmed...

    The hotel was very dirty. From the floors in the lobby littered with french fries and petals from the drab looking floral arrangements to the handprints all over the elevator to the chipped paint all over the room, the whole place looked like it needed some TLC. Would never stay there again for the price! I told the front desk as I was leaving and their response was "sorry you felt that way."

    Our FAVORITE place in Boston!!!

    We try to stay here EVERY TIME we travel to Boston. It is truly our favorite place. The rooms are comfortable, the folks who work here are like family, the location can't be beat. Hotel Commonwealth is like our home away from home. In our most recent stay, the family next door to us let their kids run wild, and it they hooted and hollered like hooligans, While that pack of kids made us miserable, the hotel staff did everything in their power to try to quiet them, and if the hotel had not been full, would have moved us to a quieter room. We LOVE this place!

    Beautiful Hotel! Service was great, room was beautiful, excellent customer service with welcome snacks and water. The only complaint is the 68.00 valet parking fee, I used a local parking garage near by and they only charged me 33.00 for 24 hours. Big difference!

    Great location to Fenway park

    Valet parking and check in was very pleasurable. Room service breakfast was delicious. Very close to Fenway park where we attended a concert. Great view of the city and the corgi sign . Cool elevator with autographs inside . We would definitely stay here again . The person we dealt with at check in was very personable and offered us extra water and snacks . He seemed like a very nice man ! All the hotel staff we encountered were very pleasant!
