Boston’s Hotel Commonwealth completes renovations

Hotel Commonwealth in Boston’s Kenmore Square completed renovations to all its guestrooms and three new suites designed to reflect the city’s music, academics and arts.  All 149 guestrooms and suites at Hotel Commonwealth now have a modern aesthetic in synch with the hotel’s urban locale. 

This marks the first phase in overall expansion of the hotel, which will be completed in Fall 2015.

Some highlights of the renovations include: three new signature luxury suites (named as The Rathskeller, The Terrier and The Loft), which transport guests into explorations of Boston’s punk music past, modern art lifestyle and Boston University’s school spirit; and guest rooms awash in fresh tones and new luxe custom décor, with amenities such as a “virtual concierge” in every guestroom (the only hotel in Boston to do so) via a dedicated app on Google Nexus tablets, offering hotel services from minibar menu delivery and laundry pick-up to restaurant reservations and express check-out.
