BOSTON, June 18, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Just in time for summer and the return of sun-kissed dog days, Hotel Commonwealth offers the ultimate Boston experience with new signature guest experiences and its prime location in the city's burgeoning Fenway-Kenmore Square entertainment district, steps away from Fenway Park, MGM Music Hall, and some of Boston's best dining.

Just in time for summer, Hotel Commonwealth offers the ultimate Boston experience with new signature guest experiences and its prime location in the city's burgeoning Fenway-Kenmore Square entertainment district, steps away from Fenway Park, MGM Music Hall and some of Boston's best dining.

The Official Hotel of the Boston Red Sox, Hotel Commonwealth, has debuted an exclusive experience for young baseball fans. The Honorary Bat Kids Experience grants children under the age of 13 a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch batting practice from the team's official dugout at Fenway Park, wave to the crowd and be recognized during that day's pregame ceremony. Proceeds from the sales of this experience will benefit the Red Sox Foundation, the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox and the largest pro sports team-affiliated charitable organization in America.

This new experience joins Hotel Commonwealth's other exclusive Red Sox packages, which offer perks such as front-row seats, signed baseball memorabilia, a personalized message on the scoreboard, in-seat personal visit from Wally or Tessie and matching team jerseys for the family. For the ultimate fan immersion, guests can stay in one of the hotel's signature baseball-themed suites, complete with rare memorabilia and views of Fenway Park.
