10.0 Excellent
Pros:The staff went above and beyond to help make my stay special
10.0 Excellent
Pros:My wife and I have stayed here before and have always enjoyed the experience. Last night was was another example of why we keep coming back. Upon checking in we received a complimentary upgrade to the Baseball Suite. The room was phenomenal. Corey at the front desk helped me get some friends a last minute reservation and could not have been more friendly. Overall a great stay.
8.0 Great
Pros:Good location with convenience store nearby 10-15 min from shopping and restaurants Just next to subway or metro
Cons:no kettle or complimentary tea and coffee in room very slow free wifi
6.8 Okay
Cons:Wifi was terrible. You couldn't even get high speed wireless in the lobby. You had to pay for it and even then it was spotty at best. For the money we paid for the room, reliable internet service is not too much to ask.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Didn't even know it was the Boston Redsox Official Hotel. Lots of sports memorabilia, great creature comforts, staff eager to please. Jonathan at front desk was the standout employee that made our stay even better. He had great tips, suggestions for sights & food and truly made us welcome.
Cons:Having to leave
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The staff at the Hotel Commonwealth was friendly and accommodating. My Mom and I stayed one night in order to attend the Patriot's Victory Parade, and though we opted for a late checkout, we ended up getting stuck on the parade route. We called to let the hotel know, and they were very kind. Instead of charging us for half a day, they went and packed up our room for us, and held our luggage in the bell closet. The hotel was beautiful and the pillows and beds were some of the best I've ever slept in! Will definitely stay again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The staff was very nice. Service impeccable. Beds were so comfortable!!!! We will be back!!!!
Cons:There is not a single thing I did not like about this hotel. It was wonderful!
8.5 Great
Cons:Shower head needs replacing room 410
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Service was great, Room and amenities were lush. For a BU Alumni attending some University events it was perfectly convenient! Valet was a little pricey...park on the street if you can but the Valet guys offered great service!
Cons:Valet parking was pricey for Boston!
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Room was great; location superb to Fenway for Billy Joel concert, and staff was fine. Valet was extraordinary! However, had to negotiate with staff at desk to get room reserved.
Cons:Booked at and reserved the Fenway Room which is shown on their website as looking over Fenway Park. When we asked for it upon arrival desk clerk told us a lot of people THINK it looks over Fenway but it doesn't. Even if it did there was construction obliterating any view. (Picture on misleading: hotel is on Beacon Street a block from Fenway Park). He gave us a "Kenmore" room which looked into alley-type street. Asked for refund of difference, told not done, but upgraded to suite. Satisfied with new room..
