2017 Best Hotel, General Excellence

Hotel Commonwealth

After a sweeping $50 million upgrade, Hotel Commonwealth is in a league of its own. In addition to 96 sleek new guest rooms, the Kenmore Square gem now boasts a Red Sox-themed luxury suite and private event space overlooking Fenway Park. Add in three of the city’s hottest dining and drinking spots—including Eastern Standard, which also serves up gourmet room service—and you have a home run.
