      Cleanliness etc as expected. But run like a discount airline. Got nonrefundable rooms for $84, but the $30 fee (essentially for a bag of fruit snacks, and other things you'd expect to be free like shampoo and television), $58 for parking, and taxes brought the total up to $197. Airbnb around this area appear more expensive than the hotels, but it's worth factoring in the hotels' disingenuous hidden costs before making a decision. Can't find a reason to stay here again.

    • Extra charges 'soured' our stay.

      We found an amazing price through a third party and booked this hotel for me and my husband on a Sunday night, in preparation for a morning meeting. Upon booking, we were notified that there was a $30 'resort' fee, which had not been disclosed. They call it a Destination Amenity Fee. What for? Well, there is citrus water in the lobby, access to fitness room and business center, free local phone calls (!), high-speed internet, bottled water in the room, and a 'breakfast pass' (a 2" muffin -or- fruit cup and coffee). Oh, and if you need a ride within 2 miles of the hotel, you can book the free luxury SUV between 7-9 in the morning only. Except for the SUV ride and tiny muffin, all of these amenities are usually offered at hotels we stay at. We all have cell phones, so even the free local calls offer is totally absurd. On top of that, I called ahead to see if we could change our room type from King to two Queens, so that our adult daughter could join us (for the meeting the next day). Yes, for a $35 upgrade fee. Upgrade? Please note, the only parking is valet for $58 + tip. I found private overnight parking about three blocks away for $40. Please note, this overnight parking was not easy to find. Needless to say, we won't be staying there again. We don't like the 'nickel and dime' practice. They should just include it all in the room fee, for crying out loud! However, if you need to stay in the Back Bay area and you don't mind paying for extra hidden fees, I must say that the rooms are really clean, spacious and well-appointed. The decor in the room and lobby is attractive. It was silent at night (our room faced the rear). The hotel location is very good and a quick walk to Back Bay restaurants. Please see my photographs to support this review and read the details of the Resort Destination Fee amenities at the Hotel Commonweath in Boston.

      I was excited to stay here and be in the Back Bay area. It was rainy which wasn't ideal to wander around, but there are some great restaurants and bars nearby, and the T (metro) is right across the street. Hotel was fine. But that's all. The entrance is small and near a corner between to restaurants. It was always super busy and hard to get in and out of the hotel. Lobby on level 2. Not sure what would happen in a fire or need to get out. It wasn't a warm lovely place to walk into with all the business. The restaurants attached to it are both awesome and service is solid. I'd eat there but likely stay somewhere else.

      First, we were placed in an "upgraded" room (it was the last room available) that reeked of cigarettes and needed to be extensively cleaned. When we asked to be relocated, we were moved to another "upgraded" room on the other side of the hotel that featured thumping bass through the walls until 2AM on a Sunday night/Monday morning. The amenities fee included a continental breakfast, but when we arrived at the restaurant before 9am on a Monday morning, we were informed that they were "all out" of complementary food. The amenities fee also includes free bottled water, unless you crack open the wrong (and not-well-marked) bottle of water in your room, which comes with an additional $6 charge. Also, half of the front desk staff were quite pleasant, but the other half were nothing short of very grumpy. We got a pretty good deal on the room, but I would still skip this hotel and try another instead.
