"Excellent Hotel & Service!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Both in the location (literally across the street from the Capitol and park) and the staff at The Commonwealth, excellence prevailed. From the valet, Kenny, to the energetic Nico in the restaurant and Michael at the front desk, each was very polite, friendly and especially helpful. The suites are beautifully decorated with a clever theme. With the large rooms, we felt we were in an apartment. We will definitely return to The Commonwealth.
