Why We Love This Hotel

  • The official hotel of the Boston Red Sox — there's even AstroTurf and player autographs in the elevators
  • Starting at 470 square feet, guest rooms feel spacious — especially for downtown; they also come with imported Italian linens and down comforters
  • The underground cocktail bar, Hawthorne — formerly the Rathskeller — was once a hot spot for Beantown's punk rock scene; now it boasts a 5-star rating from Time Out Boston

"Great location in a quieter part of Boston. Had a fantastic meal at the Island Creek Oyster Bar within the hotel. Staff were wonderful. Just be aware of the hotel and parking fees. Rooms facing Fenway also face the Mass Pike (Rt 90), so traffic noise does enter the rooms. Overall a very good experience and we would come back."

Overview

The Hotel Commonwealth sits in the heart of Red Sox Nation, but when staying here, you'll hardly feel like you're in the bleacher seats: Starting with the Parisian-style exterior, the hotel feels sophisticated and artsy thanks to its muted gray colour palette offset by eclectically mixed patterns and pieces from local painters displayed on the walls. It also backs up to loads of "exceptional dining" (Conde Nast Traveller) on Kenmore Square and is within walking distance of high-end shopping in Back Bay.

Guest rooms have a contemporary vibe with ultramodern amenities like Google Chromecast on the TVs, plus floor-to-ceiling windows and "supremely comfortable beds" (The Telegraph). They also pay homage to the Sox through subtle accents like baseball stitching on the drapes — not to mention commanding views of Fenway Park.

Although Boston never lacks for good food, guests could easily pass an evening at the hotel's New England-style eatery, Eastern Standard, or the on-site oyster bar, Island Creek. We recommend the soft pretzel with bourbon mustard from the basement cocktail bar, Hawthorne: "It pairs well with nearly everything" (Time Out Boston).

Hotel was very clean, rooms were large. Nice linens ,soft large towels, nice toiletries. Very large bathroom with a big shower . Also had a makeup mirror with light. Rooms came with a token to be used for coffee and a pastry in the restaurant. Eastern standard restaurant was great. We had lunch and a late night snack.

This may be duplicate. The survey disappeared while I was typing. Tracking offer a great opportunity to try this hotel. We've eaten at both restaurants on the property a few times. Love the location; perfect for the MFA and Gardner museums, which we visited during our stay.
Other Comments
All good. Would love a coffee offering in the lobby, however. Inexplicably, the terrific Eastern Standard restaurant, where hotel guests receive complimentary morning coffee, served mediocre to bad coffee. That was the only negative, and certainly not a big deal.

We got an upgrade as it was our anniversary. It was a nice amount of space.
