5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

Superb across the board...location, service, amenities...all were outstanding! Hard to top this class act. Close to everything...Fenway Park, Copley Square, Back Bay, great restaurants...one of the nicest parts of Boston! Room was spacious and well appointed. Both restaurants accessible from the hotel were superb. Looking forward to another visit.

We knew we liked the Island Creek Oyster Bar (the best) and the Eastern Standard (great for brunch) so when it was time for an anniversary overnight the choice seemed obvious and we weren't disappointed.

The room, bed and bath were great and the separate sitting room was great for an early riser.

Location was great for shopping and the MFA.

Nicholas was most accommodating with some anniversary special details - he even found a really fresh whole pineapple!

The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to just about everywhere you want to go, close to public transportation as well. Rooms are a nice size, well-lit, service is very good. Check-in and check-out were very efficient, and staff was very pleasant. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was priced as expected for an on-site restaurant. Plenty of fast-food available in the area.

I was in Boston to propose to my girlfriend and needed a nice place to stay for the night after I surprised her. The hotel staff was extremely nice and friendly and even upgraded us to one of their suites after hearing my plans. I thought this was generous, especially considering I was using a discounted rate. The room was fantastic! The bathroom was pretty incredible too, with whirlpool, water closet, large separate shower, and his/hers sinks, it was an overall enjoyable experience.

We've stayed in many hotels in Boston but can't say enough about the Hotel Commonwealth. The staff and their focus on customer service is outstanding. The rooms are immaculate, the location is tremendous (loved seeing the Red Sox World Series banner from our room!!!!) and the restaurants are among the best in town. The front desk staff is so helpful and the quiet excellence of the property is the best!

I stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth after a concert at the House of Blues. The room was beautiful and the location couldn't have been better. What really makes the Hotel Commonwealth stand oout, however, is the friendliness of the staff.
