Overview

Official hotel of the Boston Red Sox (one block north of Fenway Park)
Some rooms are exposed to late night noise from the surrounding area

Hold on to your hats, Red Sox fans: If you're in town for the big game, you'll find Hotel Commonwealth sits just blocks from your beloved Fenway Park. This stylish boutique hotel features spacious accommodations, equipped with bathrobes, Italian linens with down comforters and flat-screen TVs. Recent guests loved the luxe look and feel of the rooms, and said both the amenities and staff members are on par for a hotel of this caliber. At the end of the night, cap off your evening with an in-room spa treatment or – if you haven't filled up on peanuts and Cracker Jacks – a decadent gourmet meal at the Eastern Standard restaurant. For a quieter meal, check out Island Creek Oyster Bar, which boasts a bounty of seafood offerings. If you've brought your pup along for the ride, rest assured that he'll be well taken care of with grooming, walking and even doggie massage services.
