The Hotel Commonwealth in Boston has opened a $50 million dollar expansion and renovation project that added 96 guest rooms for a total of 245. The new wing overlooks Fenway Park and features a Fenway Park Suite filled with Red Sox memorabilia, including original ballpark seats on its terrace. The work also added 6,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including 1,500 square foot outdoor terrace, bringing the hotel's total to 10,000 square feet. This was the final stage of a project that also renovated the property's lobby, existing guest rooms and meeting space.

"Twelve years ago Hotel Commonwealth spurred a revival of the Kenmore Square area, and we are excited to see the neighborhood continue to evolve," said Adam Sperling, general manager of Hotel Commonwealth. "The new wing and recent renovation reflect the dynamic neighborhood, and we are thrilled to showcase our exciting new transformation to guests and locals." 

Each of the new guest rooms features a Google Nexus tablet that allows guests to request room service and minibar items, book dog-walking appointments, check in for flights and more.

The new 6,000 square feet of meetings space is anchored by a 3,200-square-foot grand ballroom, a 1,500-square-foot terrace, a state-of-the-art boardroom. 

The Hotel Commonwealth is the official hotel of the Boston Red Sox; exclusive tours of the ballpark can be arranged.
