Built by the same designer as the Park Plaza in New York (you can still see the PP logo on its walls), the Fairmont Copley is centrally located to all the major attraction of Boston. Once the doorman, dressed in uniform, invites you into the hotel, you will be escorted down Peacock Alley's mosaic tiled floor to the front desk.... More

At check-in, I was advised that if I waited for rooms to be cleaned, I could get a better room. I did so, but after 2.5 hours, no better room materialized. I reported, and service looked at: leaky water facet (bathroom sink) -- could not be fixed; no cool air when set to 65 (fan promised twice, but never delivered);... More

The hotel has a lot of style and luxury. It is an older hotel with great service and charm. The location is the best, you can walk to everything, and if you don't want to walk the T is right outside the door or taxis always available. Rooms are very nice. We stay on the gold floor which has a... More

This hotel was larger than i expected and i think on 5 levels so not to high. Very posh hotel, but price was reasonable. Right by Copley square so quite central in Boston. They have 2 dogs that live there and you can take them for walkies. Staff are friendly and rooms are a fair size. There is a restaurant,... More

Old world charm with attention to detail. I stayed here for one night. The moment I stepped in, I felt as if I was in a world class hotel. The ambiance and staff were trained top notch. The room was beautiful and spacious. I do enjoy to workout, so I took advantage of the Health Club on the top floor.... More

As a wedding photographer, I have had the experience of dealing with a variety of staff at the Fairmont Copley Plaza from the valet to the front desk, Oak Long Bar staff, hotel concierge, catering sales, housekeeping, and banquet staff. While I am often working with clients staying at the hotel, the staff does seem to make everyone that comes... More

Beautiful hotel in a perfect location. Walkable to pretty much anywhere you want to be. The room was large, bed was very comfortable. Large well fitted bathroom with large shower. Windows open which is great. The hotel is very upper class meaning walking around in jeans I felt a bit out of place. Just not our style. Great service at... More

Stayed the weekend for father daughter weekend. Stayed in a Signature room overlooking Copley Plaza. The room had 2 wonderful queen beds and a very large marble bath. Each night someone came by with waters and turn down. Very civilized. Staff was friendly , knowledgeable and well trained. The Oak bar is stunning. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Visited Boston for a Bruce Springsteen concert and stayed 4 nights in the Fairmont. We had some difficulty getting our concert tickets which were supposed to be delivered to the hotel. The staff ( and Jason at the front desk in particular) went out of their way to help us get our tickets. After we successfully received them and were... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
