The Boston Marriott Copley Place was exactly what I expected it to be: a big, modern convention-center hotel in a great location, with service and amenities that met all my needs. I stayed for one night in November for a leisure trip, and I got a fantastic rate with Marriott's best-rate guarantee.
I hoped for an early check-in, and I got a room with no problem when I arrived at noon. I had a corner room with two double beds facing a wall of windows on the ninth floor. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and I slept great. The room also had an armchair and a desk with a desk chair. A cabinet held drawers and a flat-screen TV, which was situated a bit too low for watching from bed. The furnishings were modern, and the room was clean. Electrical outlets were available on top of the desk and the nightstand, making charging convenient, but there was no safe in the room.The bathroom was a bit small, but fine, and the vanity was a decent size. The bath was a shower/tub combo with a curved curtain rod.
I had good service with no waiting at the front desk, the bell stand, and the bar. In addition to the bar, the hotel has a restaurant, a Starbucks, lounge areas, a fitness center, and an indoor pool. The hotel is connected to two malls (Copley Place and the Prudential Center shops). Plenty of restaurants, both local establishments and national chains, are nearby. The location is also convenient to the Back Bay train station and the orange and green lines of the T.
This property is unmistakably a big, national chain hotel. It looked and felt like it could be any Marriott in any big city, so this might not be the best hotel for travelers looking for unique local charm. But the upsides of a chain are familiarity, predictability, and consistency. The Boston Marriott Copley Place met the standards I expect of a Marriott and represented the brand well. I found it to be a safe and comfortable hotel choice.
