ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: My recent stay at Hotel Commonwealth in Boston for client meetings was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I arrived, the check-in process set the tone for an outstanding experience. The front desk staff were friendly, efficient and accommodating, making me feel truly welcome. Despite my early arrival, they were able to expedite my check-in and provide me with valuable information about the hotel and the local area. The seamless and quick process was a great start to my visit.

GUEST QUARTERS: Upon entering my guest quarters, I was immediately impressed by the cleanliness and modern design of the room. The room was spacious and featured all the amenities one could desire for a comfortable stay. The bed provided a restful night’s sleep, and the well-appointed bathroom was stocked with high-quality toiletries, including a Drybar hairdryer — a thoughtful touch that added to the overall convenience and comfort of my stay. The attention to detail in the room’s design and furnishings truly made me feel like a valued guest. Whether I relaxed in the cozy armchair or took in the city views from the window, the guest quarters at Hotel Commonwealth exceeded my expectations.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: Hotel Commonwealth offers an array of amenities that truly enhance the overall guest experience. The fitness center was well-equipped with a variety of exercise machines, making it easy to stick to my workout routine while traveling. The on-site dining options were a highlight of my stay. I enjoyed a delightful lunch at the hotel’s restaurant, Blue Ribbon Sushi, where the sushi was fresh and delicious. The hotel boasts other outstanding restaurants such as Pescador Coastal Grill and TsuruTonTan Udon Noodle Brasserie, offering a diverse range of culinary experiences. The room service was also prompt and convenient, making it easy to enjoy a meal in the comfort of my room. Additionally, the complimentary WiFi ensured I could stay connected throughout my visit. The hotel’s location also made it easy to explore the city, with Fenway Park and other attractions within walking distance. The convenience of these amenities made my stay all the more enjoyable.


  • Exceptional Check- in Experience: The friendly and efficient check-in process set the stage for a wonderful stay.
  • Luxurious Guest Quarters: The well- designed and comfortable guest quarters provided a perfect retreat after a day of exploring the city.
  • Outstanding Ameni- ties: Hotel Common- wealth offers a range of amenities, from the fitness center to on-site dining, ensur- ing a convenient and enjoyable stay.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
