We recently attended the North American Teacher's of Singing conference at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. This hotel is huge, but run well. All the staff, from the front desk crew to the bellmen, to the wait staff were very knowledgeable and personable. Hard to find in a big corporate hotel. The maid service was excellent and both of the ladies that I interacted with went above making sure we had what we needed. The internet on the higher floors is a bit spotty but was able to reconnect quickly when it happened without major outages. Another plus.
Don't overlook bringing your swimming suit because they have an excellent pool and hot tub, as well as excersize room on the 5th floor, and I overheard several people bemoaning the fact that they'd not even thought to bring suits.
If you have children with you with finicky appitites consider running across the street to Shaw's grocery and stocking up on cereal, milk and finger foods. This hotel may have the slowest response time elevators I've ever seen, but they do eventually show up and get you where you're going quickly. It gives you a chance to get to know your fellow travelers, and I met lots of nice folks from all over the world.
In house parking prices are spendy, so if you are planning a lenghty stay you might consider finding an off site parking garage for a few dollars less, or leave the car home and take public transport which is readily available at the entrance area to the lobby outside.
Check for the availability of outside tour opportunities. Several leave from eiher the hotel or close to the hotel, including a tour of Boston and the harbor in Amphibous vehicles you can board across the street.
Shopping affectionados should love the Copley which is attached to two main malls, and the food court at the mall is a good option to grab a decent and fairly priced quick lunch between sessions of whichever conference you may be attending.
Overall a GREAT experience and I would consider revisiting this property if I'm ever in the area again!
