Great place to meet up with friends and plan your tour of Boston. Get the bus to the airport for only $5 !! The vendors with fresh baked goods and vegetables allowed us to purchase good morning eats almost every day.

Wide street..Incredible old churches to view and visit..100's of boutique shops on Newbury Street. The place to see and be seen..On Thursday they a music on the park and during the weekdays they have an open-air Farmer's Market..Great for strolling and visiting the Big Apple Store, Crate and Barrel and hearing sopranos sing in the Trinity Church...Worth visiting..

the structure which is mainly aiming at keeping customers warm in winter, works conversely very well in summer, when you can walk from building to building shopping in air conditioned environment

Take a break from Newberry Street and grab a seat. Such a beautiful place. Right next to Trinity Church and across the street from Boston Public Library.

My friend and I spent some time wandering around Copley Square during a quick weekend trip to Boston. The architecture in this area is amazing, especially Trinity Church and the Boston Library. Check out the School of Architecture nearby, too - their building is gorgeous as well. Lots of street performers, shops and restaurants in this spot, but we didn't... More

The Marriott, is classy, and accomodated our entire family.....Parking is comofrtable, and the transit is so close, or cabs or buses, make it very convenient, at this location. If traveling to Boston, for your children going to College- the Midtown is Fair, however, I choose the Marriott, often.

If you're taking the green or orange lines of the T, stop and spend some time in Copley to look at the beautiful architecture! There is often a farmer's market here and there are great local opportunities for shopping and dining.

There may not be much to see in the square itself (a fountain and a playful hare and tortoise sculpture), but it is a convenient place to start/end your visits to the Trinity Church, Boston Public Library and Newbury St., or to take rests in between them.
