                          We got upgraded to a suite and the staff was awesome. so friendly and helpful. The attached restaurant was amazing for brunch. So close to Fenway and Newbury st.

                          Parking is $42 a night. More expensive than Manhattan rates.

                          I liked everything exept the fact, that on the site Booking it is written , than in this hotel there is SPA, but there is only fitness, no SPA, no sauna or hammam.

                          My daughter is a student in BU. The hotel was almost on campus. The staff was wonderful. The room/service was great! We had a great time!

                          This was my first stay at Hotel Commonwealth. Picked it because of its location to Fenway Park. Was very impressed with the staff and service. The rooms were luxurious. Would definitely recommend to our friends.

                          My room was pretty, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. When I return to Boston I hope to stay there again.

                          Nice hotel, location, and convenient to Fenway.

                          Room service prices are very high. Parking fees make you wish you didn't bring a car.

                          Great location near fenway and bu. The staff, while very nice and commenting about my surgery, were not very thoughtful in putting someone who just had knee surgery in the furthest room from the elevators.

                          Poor choice of room for a disabled person. Very nice cheese plate, but I would have rather had a room not at the end of the hallway post surgery.

                          The staff were courtious, helpful, and attentive

                          I would have liked to have had tea making facilities in room. (I think that guests would only tend to use such facilities only at times when Commonwealth Coffee is not available).

                          I enjoyed the location and some of the staff were friendly. The rest of them just "acted" friendly

                          My pillow smelled, I was charged an arm and a leg and it seemed like most of the staff (desk workers) were very "snotty" and could care less about your stay.

                          Location was tremendous. Close to Fenway, the T stop, and within easy walking distance of downtown Boston. Rooms were comfortable and well-appointed. Staff were very professional and friendly.

                          Unfortunately, we had an ant infestation in one of our rooms. When we reported the problem to hotel staff, they very quickly had an employee up to assist us with a room upgrade. We ended up in an executive suite one floor down, with two hotel staffers helping us move our belongings. They handled the problem marvelously, and we were impressed. We had one other issue, involving billing, that wasn't handled as well. We told the front desk when we checked in that both rooms should be charged to my credit card (we were treating the couple traveling with us, my husband's parents, to their room). But the hotel delivered one bill to each room, so the surprise was spoiled. The front desk staff apologized for the error, but we were irritated.

                          air conditioning was a little low in the evening but just a minor adjustment

                          The room was beautiful and very clean. The staff was wonderfully friendly and helpful. Everything was very classy.

                          For the price I would think that they would at least offer morning coffee!
