The hotel staff turned a quick getaway weekend into a memorable stay in a corner suite that made us feel like the King and Queen of Old Boston! When we asked about violin music emanating from the hotel ballroom we were informed that it was a private party, but that if we wanted to hear music they could provide 2... More

Good location and easy access to Copley subway and Back Bay train station. Clean and cozy room but a bit small bathroom, not enough space to put personal toiletries. Soft and comfort bedding. Friendly staffs.

My wife and I stayed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza one night after attending a Gala Dinner in the Ballroom. First, let me say, the dinner went off without a hitch and the food was awesome. The staff was on every detail from reception to after party dancing. Our room was upgraded to a very nice view over Copley Square,... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Copley twice within a year for extended periods. The lobby and public areas are gorgeous. It is a historic building with beautiful interiors. The rooms are comfortable. For our second visit, the room overlooked Copley Plaza and it was a treat to watch the snow (more like the blizzard!) from our window. We had couple... More

The lobby, public spaces, restaurant and meeting rooms are incredible - as is the location. The rooms are ok. They are advertised as being renovated but it appears that the renovation was just paint & carpet. Rooms and bathrooms are a little dark and a lot of noise comes from the hallway. Ask for a room at the end of... More

We made reservations at the Fairmont with plans to make it really special for the kids. The staff at the Fairmont made this an Extra-special occasion for all of us. The... More

We stayed at this wonderful hotel for 2 nights in early January. It was so beautifully decorated for Christmas. From the moment I left my car at the entrance everyone was so friendly and pleasant from the doormen to all the front desk and other staff. I enjoyed meeting Katie Copley and so did my greyhound who was also able... More
