Disliked: This hotel is just basic. It should be priced at $500+ a night.

Liked: The Staff was amazing, so professional and helpful. Located near Fenway Park, not too far from historic hub. Public transportation was easy to access.
Disliked: Would have liked better token "on the go" breakfast option. No access to ice without housekeeping delivery.


Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

Liked: Room is well appointed and staff is friendly and accommodating
Disliked: The hotel advertises that the resort fee covers a coffee and fruits or pastry at Eastern Standard but eastern standard is consistently out of either fruit or pastry! The false advertising is a bit of a let down.

Amazing time at a great...

Liked: The Hotel Commonwealth is a great hotel, nice staff people who are always available to help you. The number one thing about this hotel is location location location. Kenmore station is literally right out the door, the green line can get you anywhere in the city in about 20 minutes. The rooms, even the more affordable ones are spacious. The beds are comfy with the swishy hotel pillows that everyone loves. The entire hotel is managed well, and the interiors are beautiful. I highly recommend room service after a long day of walking the city, the late night menu has some delicious bites at reasonable rates.
Disliked: Only things I would caution about this hotel, the free breakfast is a is simply a small pastry (if they have not run out) and a iced or hot coffee with milk and sugar. If you want a room with a view you need to pay more and call in advance to confirm you have been given a room with a view of the city or fenway park. Last draw back is parking. The valet is over 50$ a day. We checked in on a Friday and out on a Monday. We intentionally left and checked in the way we did to avoid paying extra for parking. In the end we were only charged for two overnights because we left early.

An excellent hotel, centrally located,...

Liked: We were upgraded to a suite, decorated in BU memorabilia. Given that my wife and I attended BC, that was ironically funny. The suite, however, was spacious and lovely.
Disliked: No criticism.

Don't stay here

Liked: It is a good location.
Disliked: apart from location I did not like anything else. I had the feeling that they are trying to charge me for everything and treat me as if I was going to run away without paying. Overall it was a very uncomfortable feeling. The room was large but very badly designed. The heating was like in the highway hotels - either working too much or not working. Way too expensive for it offers.

Beautiful hotel in Fenway area.

Liked: The hotel is beautiful and modern. Everyone was very helpful from the valet to the checkin staff. The room was spacious and clean. It has a very modern look for the Fenway area.
Disliked: The hotel was almost too modern. The hotel in very close to Fenway and that is why we chose this hotel. Unfortunately that is all it is really close to. They have a valet but this come with a steep parking fee.

Liked: Location... location ... location
Disliked: We had some maintenance noise early in the morning 2 days in a row ... hammering, drilling and banging notifies the front desk staff but was never follow up by a manager.
