Hotel Commonwealth

When I lived in Boston's Kenmore Square back in the mid-80's a place like this would have been most welcome, but mostly inconceivable. Well the Square is hip now and the Hotel Commonwealth defines this new era. Where the Back Bay meets the Fenway (hello Green Monster!), this splendid hotel combines urban flair and deep comfort.

The "T" is within and will provide an easy trolley trip east into downtown and west towards Brookline; arrayed within blocks are boutiques, movie theaters, the Red Sox, cafes and restaurants. But you need go no further than downstairs for that (Udon noodles!).

The rooms are smartly furnished and technologically up to date, the linens Italian, and the soaps and various sundries smell nice (Malin + Goetz).

I am thrilled that when I return to Boston, I won't be reliving my past, but instead recreating a very plush version of it! I hope you'll enjoy it too.
