We were in Boston for a couple of days playing a concert at Symphony Hall. We wanted a quieter area than Copley Square that still has great restaurants and not far from work. We found this in the Commonwealth Hotel and Kenmore neighborhood.
From the moment I called on our way in from the airport I knew we were in good hands. I needed an early check in and not only did Ophelia provide this but she instantly upgraded our reservation. *Note to Commonwealth General Manager: she's gold! Don't lose her!!
Anyway, we couldn't have been happier with every aspect of our stay and literally ate our way up and down the street near the hotel.
They were beginning a major lobby and reception area renovation while we were there but it in no way inconvenienced us.
In short, a classy and we'll run hotel with personal attention and care for visitors.
Thanks and we'll be back!
My husband and I recently visited Boston for our 20th anniversary, and stayed in the Onyx Hotel for four nights. The hotel was wonderful - centrally located (we walked everywhere), extremely friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms. They went above and beyond by providing us with a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries in our room upon arrival. It was such a kind and thoughtful gesture that we greatly appreciated. An extra added plus was our sweet roommate, a goldfish whom we named 'Sunny.' Also, the hotel welcomes dogs - love that!
