Always stay here when we're in Boston. The gold level is the best. Great room. Staff is wonderful. Drinks, breakfast and hors d'oeuvres were excellent. Well worth the cost. Great location close to subway. Within walking distance of Boston commons. We drove this time and had no problems with traffic.

I stayed in this hotel with my wife and son. The hotel has an ancient majestic feel to it. The bellman was very friendly and the check in process went rather smoothly. The service at the restaurant could be improved, with more attention to detail. The movies option were not available on the two days that we stayed here. The... More

I was at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston for a large business gathering hosted by my company. As a President's Club Member (and employee of the sponsoring organization), I was comped a junior suite (and WiFi). It was very spacious and well-equipped.

My husband and I stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. We stayed on the fourth floor (for gold members). I have never received better service in my life! Everything was perfect from the personal check in we received on the fourth floor, the room, the complimentary cocktails, and I could go on and on about the breakfast and evening... More

We only stayed for just a weekend. Upon our travel agent's recommendation, it was a complete surprise to arrive at such an impressive hotel, we didn't even know what the place looked like. We got a great room rate and thought it would be a 'standard' hotel... until we arrived!! Our jaws dropped.. we thought we were in the movies;... More

On a business trip we had a 3 days meeting at the Fairmont Copley. Nice place, wonderful staff, really nicely located. We had a Faimont room, the room is small but comfortable, the bathroom was really small! The bath was old and tiny... Needed to be change. The sink is self standing so no place to put our stuff in...

We only stayed one night here but were very impressed with the grand décor, impeccable service and specialized treatment. We mentioned at check in that we were going to a Red Sox game, and when we got to our room, there were 2 complimentary Red Sox baseball hats for our kids. It was a little pricey for us, but well...

This hotel is very well located so its easy to get around Boston by foot and sight see. We got a great discount rate and our room was very spacious( but zero view) The only quirk for me is being so high end, there is no Wifi and a $15 per day charge. Unlike the Marriott which we frequent often... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza to celebrate my husband's birthday and what a celebration it was! We were able to use a "suite upgrade" and it was so Sweet! We had the JFKennedy suite, corner of the 6th floor, overlooking Copley Plaza and Boylston Street. Fabulous!!! The staff could not have been more accommodating and the hotel itself... More

The staff is terrifically friendly and helpful, and they were very knowledgeable about the area. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, and the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. My husband and I stayed here for the weekend, and I stayed for an additional week for work. The room was very functional for both purposes. We booked under the conference rate;... More
