My room was large and had any amenity that I could want. The location was great! I was able to walk around, there was...

I'm sorry, but if I could marry a hotel--I DO. Absolutely gorgeous property. Old world elegance. The staff? BEYOND HOSPITABLE. From the front desk, to the doorman, to room service, everyone is so polite. Can't get back soon enough. No complaints.

The Fairmont Copley Plaza has been my favorite hotel in Boston ever since my first stay many years ago on a business trip. It is centrally located and close to almost everything. Plus,it still maintains the charm of the elegant older hotels of the past. Nice rooms, comfortable bed, and a pleasant helpful staff.

My husband and I stayed in a king interior room for two nights in October. The room was comfortable and modern with most of the things we needed, except some items you would expect in a hotel of this calibre e.g. Slippers, do not disturb sign, mirror in the room (in addition to in the bathroom.) The communal areas near...

3 day stay from the UK with friends. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, rooms large and spacious with bathrobes etc. The best part was it's location right in the centre of Boston within walking distance of everywhere you wanted to go. Great restaurant and cocktail bar as well but pricey.

Very nice hotel, as should be expected for this level. ALL the staff was very helpful, gracious, and welcoming. We even checked in early (1:30 P.M.) Rooms were smallish but well appointed. Remember, this is an older, downtown hotel. Lobby was quite grand, and they were beginning to roll out the Christmas decorations! Our 2nd floor room, king bed, (227)...

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
