Beautiful hotel great service

The Hotel Commonwealth is just a wonderful hotel. It has long been a great choice for baseball fans as it is only 200 yards away from Fenway Park, in busy and fun Kenmore Square. The restaurant on site is now closed and that is unfortunate but something will take its place soon, i hope. However, there are multiple choices nearby, many in close walking distance. The service and rooms are impeccable, and it is a great experience every time.

Loved how close it was to everything.

Best location for Fenway or BU as well as walking to Newbury St. Green Line station is right at hotel as well a BlueBike station.

Very convenient location to Fenway and train

This hotel provides excellent customer service and is especially conscientious regarding Covid safety precautions. The staff is exceptional. It is our new favorite hotel in Boston!

Fantastic hotel. Felt very safe with all the measures they are taking related to Covid-19.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Hotel Commonwealth. First, The location on Kenmore Sq is right above the entrance to the Green Line with easy access all over Boston. For walkers, Boston Common is only about 1.5 miles away. And Fenway Park is right around the corner for baseball fans. Second, the hotel is spotless. We had a very spacious Commonwealth Suite with a King bed and sitting room. It was terrific for our extended stay. The bed was supremely comfortable and the hotel was very quiet at night. We slept very well! Third, the staff is quite accommodating, from lending us umbrellas to shining shoes, every wish was granted with a smile. The Eastern Standard restaurant had some of the best smoked trout we'd ever had and was fairly reasonably priced. Small areas for improvement: the fitness room was fairly small and didn't have a lot of equipment. A couple of bikes, a pair of treadmills, a rowing machine, a set of weights and exercise balls. It was okay for a few people, but more than 4 would have been crowded. The hotel offered a token for a cup of coffee and muffin at Eastern Standard for breakfast, but if you didn't get downstairs early the muffins were already taken. All in all, it was a great place to stay

Cool art. Don’t know why there is a character minimum for a review, that seems weird.

I liked the size of the room, but not cozy planning of the furniture, not coffee machine in the room. You have to go every morning from 7:30 to 9:00 AM to get a coffee and pastries for separate +$25 daily. Also, when you are back from outside, the smell in the room was felling like some one is smoking.
