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.

The view of the place is perfect! Anywhere you go and pose for a picture is worth the click of your camera. The surrounding parks really give the calmness and peace every tourist would love to have.

Copley Square is a great place to visit when in Boston. Trinity Church, Boston Public Library, John Hancock Tower, a ton of shopping and restaurants up and down Boylston Street. A lot of magnificent architecture to admire and take pictures. It's also the end location of the annual Boston Marathon. Walk around and take it all in or sit on... More

We loved this area with the churches, fountains, library. So much to see and do. Newbury St is just a block north for anything you want. Glad we went here.

This is one of the great place to take photo. Especially around Trinity Church. You can score awesome photo. The best station to get off to get there is Copley station (Green Line) or Back Bay station (Orange Line)

It's a mall with expensive stores and some less so. In the end it's a mall. There's nothing wrong with it, but it's nothing to write home about. Food available, some in restaurants and some in the food court.

You can either relax and people watch, you can visit the church, the library, you can do all those and much more. A place not to be missed.

Among my fondest memories of my summer spent in Boston, picking up a new book in Barnes and Noble, catching the B line to Copley and enjoying a good read in an amazing surrounding. There is a lovely fountain area just in front of the Pru that wasa favourite spot of mine to sit.
