Reviewed 11 September 2009

I was in Boston this month checking out colleges with my little sis. We had the pleasure of staying at the Copley House. You can't get a better location than West Newton Street. Talk about a gorgeous neighborhood, beautiful brownstones and everything you need just a short walk away! Copley House really is in the Center of it all. The T (Prudential) was a 1-2 minute walk away, a HUGE upscale mall as well as the famous Newbury Street and every restaurant and nightlife amenity you can imagine.

Now the room itself was clean, functional, secure and pleasant. The beds were cozy and the staff quite accommodating to our requests and knowledgeable about what there is to do in the area. The kitchenette is also great because we didn't have to eat every meal out which saved us some $$$ to spend on all the shopping (Saks AND Barneys next door!) we tried to squeeze in.

All in all, it was a great trip. This is not the Four Seasons (that IS just down a ways though I recommend going there for tea!) but it convenient, clean and the cost fit our budget. It made us feel like we had a home base to go to after a action-packed day in the city.

We found the Copley House to be a pleasant spot, conveniently located in the Back Bay area, close to a number of 'T' stations. The room was clean, well appointed, with a kitchen area and bathroom. Staff were very helpful and did not hesitate to provide assistance - particularly when we needed to amend our booking on arrival. We would recommend the Copley House.

Hello:
When I do go back to Boston to visit friends (I used to be a resident) I always stay at the Copley House, due to its highly convenient location and low lodging costs. The Copley House has great amenities, one of which are the fully-equipped kitchens, where you can save $ by cooking your own meals. There is a supermarket nearby, in addition to a variety of other shopping venues; you just can't beat the location. Given the fact that the Back Bay is one of Boston's most exclusive neighborhoods, the stay at the Copley is real affordable, and totally comfortable. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Boston who desires a clean, comfortable, safe, friendly, and affordable place to stay.

My wife, son and I went to Boston to visit our daughter in Boston, and stayed at the Copley House for one night. It's actually not a house but a collection of apartments in several row houses all within a few blocks of each other. We had reserved a suite room on the 3rd floor of one of the 2 Newton Street buildings. When we arrived (after driving 7 hours) we were told the room had already been "assigned" but we were given another in a building on St Stephen St. Well, the room was nothing like the website prictures. It was 1970s decor, worn by 30 years or so. Light bulbs were dead, tiles loose in the bathroom, the toilet seat coming off, etc. It reminded me of my edge of Brooklyn Heights apartment, circa 1975. That's not a compliment. I only wish I thought to take a few pictures.

Don't be fooled about the parking. It is not included, unless you know the owner or the place is empty. The Manager did take the parking fee I paid for a garage a few blocks off the tab after I complained.

I commented about the condition of the apartment when checking out and the bait and switch routine. I was told I'd get an email regarding my issues. I'm still waiting.

The 1 plus was the location, in Back Bay. But unless you're on a recent college grad budget, spring the extra cash for a real hotel room.

I was in town for a business meeting/convention at Hynes Convention center, and decided to kill two birds with one stone. I wanted to see what Boston had to offer. Let me tell you, it was definitely more than I expected.

I was literally steps away from it all. There was a vast array of 3 to 5 stars restaurants within my reach, shops galore at Prudential center, as well as a Shaws market which came in handy on days where I wanted to cook my own food. I checked out the nightlife (alot of the clubs I went to were within walking distance), did some sight-seeing (Boston is very historic, and there is lots to see). I wanted to take in the whole Boston experience, so I took the "T", which was steps away from Copely House.

The price of the room was really reasonable, given the fact that it is located in one of the best/most expensive neighborhoods to live in Boston. The room was quaint and had alot of character, and was extremely clean. The linens were changed daily. The staff was both pleasant and knowledgeable about things to do in Boston, the check-in process took a few minutes, the room was what I expected (the pictures on the web-site weren't misleading at all, so I knew what to expect). I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Upon check in, we were escorted by foot to an apartment on St. Botolph St. Dreadfully filthy carpet greeted us in the foyer and the studio apartment we would call home for five nights. Thankfully, everything else was clean. It was furnished with odds and ends pieces of furniture. Although we didn't use them, the studio was supplied with frig, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee pot. We did use the iron. The location was excellent to Prudential Center and subway station. I would not choose this management company again but would look for another company that pays more attention to the upkeep of its properties.

I stayed at Copley House with my mother (85) and two teenage children in June of this year. After reading the mixed reviews on Tripadvisor I was a bit apprehensive about what we might find. However, although we had a couple of small problems at first (room on third floor with no elevator, which was a problem for my mother, and not too confortable mattress on sofa-bed), the staff, and particularly Ritza, were marvelous. They helped us out in every way: we were moved to a very nice one-bedroom apartment the day after our arrival and the mattress was changed not once but twice, until we found one that was suitable. We were also provided with an air mattress at no extra cost for one of the kids. In short, nothing beats having your own apartment, at an excellent location and for a very affordable rate. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.
