The business lobby’s floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Fenway Park.
Talk about a two-run homer—as a guest at the newly revamped Hotel Commonwealth, you can enjoy not only the luxury hotel’s expanded amenities and updated décor, but also its super-select access to the Boston Red Sox.
In December, the Commonwealth, adjacent to Fenway Park, completed a two-year, $55 million renovation and expansion, remodeling its original 145 rooms and lobby plus adding, in a new wing, 96 rooms and suites and 6,000 square feet of event space, including a 2,000-square-foot outdoor terrace.
As befits the official hotel of the Red Sox, the all-star addition is the 660-square-foot Fenway suite, which sports Sox memorabilia (a retired scoreboard, vintage baseball cards and photos) and a balcony with original ballpark seats and a head-on view of the namesake stadium.
According to GM Adam Sperling, the Red Sox partnership—and its special perks—brings guests closer to the hotel’s home in Kenmore Square: “Being able to go [atop] the Green Monster or on the field for batting practice [helps] connect guests” with the area’s heritage.
