This is a large urban hotel that offers a B&B level of hospitality. Both kid- and pet-friendly, Hotel Commonwealth also distinguishes itself with a continually smiling and attentive staff. Rooms are modern and doused in sunlight thanks to a $50 million makeover; many also face out onto Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox (baseball-themed packages are available for die-hards). And we love it when our hotels happen to house first-rate restaurants and bars. Eastern Standard restarted the city’s craft cocktail scene some 15 years ago and today remains the most popular brasserie in the city; the adjacent Hawthorne, on the other hand, offers a quieter, clubbier space for top-shelf cocktails and snacks. Then there’s Island Creek Oyster Bar, another hugely popular restaurant that grants you the perfect opportunity to sample all sorts of New England seafood.
