I like the history of the Commonwealth. The staff were all kind and helpful. One reason we chose The Commonwealth was for a microwave. My wife needed one to assist her with some health issue. The one in room 1001 did not heat. Also the door to the room didn't latch easily. We had to work hard and slam the door to make it latch. We didn't realize this until morning when the door was unlocked the night of our stay. It is a beautiful old building, but needs cleaning in corners of bathroom. Staff was terrific.
