From arrival to check out, all members of the staff were friendly and attentive. I stayed one night for business and my room was not quite ready on arrival. They immediately found another room that was ready and accommodated my need for a late check out the next day. I would not stay anywhere else in Boston.

The Hotel Commonwealth is a fantastic place to stay. It’s is conveniently located across the street from Fenway park. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Fenway park suite and it was an absolute dream, especially for a Red Sox fan. With tons of memorabilia and a balcony overlooking Fenway, it was perfect. The in room dining was very tasty and the hotel was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Plastic covered mattress. Bland yet ugly room. The opposite of luxury bedding. It’s crummy. And yes, we asked about the plastic mattress pads—even changed rooms. Same thing. Really cheesy and disgusting. No bar, no minibar, no room service at night. Do. Not. Unless you like expensive hotels that act like cheesy motels.

Hotel Commonwealth is a great place to stay when we visit my son who attends Boston University. The location is perfect, walking distance to the school and close to the T. The rooms are very spacious. All the staff are very friendly and the front desk staff was very helpful, and we appreciated the snacks they offer, and my daughter loved the reusable water bottle. One recommendation, it would be nice if they offered coffee throughout the day and not just in the morning.

The room was a nice size and the bed was comfortable. The resort fee was a bit much considering we didn't use anything that it covers... The staff was very helpful with my mom who was in a wheelchair.

Everything was wonderful and I would recommend anyone to stay at Commonwealth if given the chance. The staff was very kind and helpful, and the location is tough to beat. We’ve had our share of experiences in Boston and this was by far the best in a long time. Thanks to everyone taking care of us during our stay.

We stayed the weekend for a national track meet. We were allowed to check in early which was nice after a hectic travel over from the airport. We did have a room overlooking Fenway which sounds good but it also overlooks a graffiti covered highway. Could probably pass on that. The hotel is convenient to public transportation which you definitely will need in the area. Hotel’s coffee was the absolute worst, thankfully there’s a chain coffee shop right outside along with a convenience store. The room’s furniture has seen some better days but the bathrooms had to be recently redone; modern & attractive. The toiletries seemed good quality as well. Compared to other hotels I’ve stayed at, the price point was much too high for the experience.
