I travel a good deal but this was my first experience of the Hotel Commonwealth. The location in my mind is superb: adjacent to but not fully in the central downtown, near Fenway, MIT and Boston University, with a wealth of lovely walks and great restaurants nearby. The rooms are generously sized and very tastefully decorated; the bathroom and bed quality are top rate. The staff are professional, friendly, and always quick to respond. The connected "Eastern Standard" restaurant is a tad pricey, but has a very good menu and service. The hotel's only drawbacks are minor, but worth noting: the parking service (at $46) is definitely pricey. The fitness center is tight -- but still, I would add, outfitted with a nice selection of weights and machines. Overall, then, a very good Boston Hotel.
