As the official hotel of the Boston Red Sox, true baseball fans hit a home run when they plan their wedding at the Hotel Commonwealth. Just steps away from legendary Fenway Park, this classically cosmopolitan venue has goes the extra innings with a new addition this December.

The new event space, overlooking Fenway Park, will serve as the ultimate wedding venue for sports enthusiasts (particularly diehard Red Sox fans). A stunning pre-function space with expansive two-story floor-to-ceiling windows facing Fenway provides the ideal spot for a cocktail reception, before stepping into the new 3,200-square-foot grand ballroom for an elegant dinner for up to 250 guests. The pièce de résistance, however, is the sprawling 2,000-square-foot outdoor terrace, ideal for exchanging “I do’s” or an alfresco cocktail party.

After the cake is cut and you’ve spun around the dance floor for the last dance, the Baseball Suite threshold awaits. The perfect place for your first night as husband and wife, the spacious 600-square-foot luxury suite is dedicated to our nation’s pastime. It boasts vintage-style furniture, custom-designed leather wingback chairs, original photography, and baseball memorabilia, including a 1967 World Series Fenway Park program (Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals) and vintage trading cards featuring Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Jackie Robinson. There’s even a DVD library with more than 40 classic baseball films.

With this space dedicated to root, root, root for the home team, this is one wedding location that’s a clear all-star.
