Kenmore Square

Vibrant, Urban Living. Kenmore Square Awaits.

Kenmore Square Hotel

Hotel Commonwealth is Kenmore Square – the heart and soul of this vibrant city hub. Sited at the crossroads (both literally and figuratively) of the best of Boston’s academic, business and entertainment areas, Kenmore Square is the ideal all-access point for the multitude of urban experiences that make up Boston. Hotel Commonwealth serves as the nexus. Part community hub – the place to meet, greet, eat in Kenmore Square – and part gateway to anywhere a city day can take you, our hotel puts it all in easy reach. Small wonder the Hotel Commonwealth plays largely in the plans of veteran Boston travelers.


When you stay at our Kenmore Square hotel, immerse yourself in the local Boston culture. Experience the exquisite dining and local night life just steps from our hotel. View the famous Citgo Sign which hovers just over Fenway Park across from our front door. We have a large selection of rooms with a breathtaking view of Kenmore Square.

Our Rathskeller suite pays tribute to the historic Kenmore Square. Modeled after the famous underground music venue, “The Rat”, this room is decorated with music memorabilia, a state of the art Bose Sound System to enjoy the music, along with many unforgettable features. Enjoy your night in Boston in this Kenmore inspired room.
