We loved our 4 nights at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. (Make sure you specify which Copley Hotel, as there are several.) Loved the 4th floor lounge with free, varied hot breakfast every morning and enough food for dinner on 3 of our 4 nights. One night we ate in the hotel's vibrant Oak Long Bar - delicious Yankee Pot Roast,... More

Very nice hotel with a classical look in the lobby and common areas, but updated, modern rooms and facilities. I recently broke my ankle and the hotel staff was very accommodating to my needs. Beautiful room with a great location. Directly across the street from the Boston public library. Transportation from Logan was very easy on the Logan Express to... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at the property as part of our vacation. From the moment we arrived the staff were more than helpful going out of their way to assist us with information. The hotel itself is very picturesque and the two house dogs Catie and Carly absolutely adorable. I did have one small problem with some... More

This is a top hotel and you wont be disappointed. We stayed one night and used the train to New York nearby at Back Bay station. There is a local bar down the street called Blackstone that is fun. The Fairmont is a great location for picture taking.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel mid August and really enjoyed our time there. I emailed reservations prior to leaving the UK to request a high floor with street view and was really pleased when my request was met and the young man who checked us in even referred to the email (a lovely personal touch) Check in was smooth...

Room was recently refurbished - located at the back of the hotel - a long walk from the lobby. However it was far away from any noise , so no problem. Bed was very comfortable - a great nights sleep. Breakfast area was very stylish - food was OK but overpriced. Evening meal was much better - both in terms... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We got married at the Copley Plaza over thirty years ago and had not been back to stay at the hotel since that time. Everyone with whom we interacted were truly outstanding! The staff was professional,courteous and always took the time and effort to go beyond... More

What a great hotel. The location is perfect, so close to everywhere you'd want to be. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous, reminds us very much of Paris. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious. The beds are fabulous. I had my best night of sleep in years. Go to the Oak restaurant and bar off the lobby. It is something else,... More

Stayed here on business. Front desk staff was very helpful and food in restaurant was excellent. Rooms were spacious and clean. Great amenities and good location for access to downtown. Would recommend this to anyone.

Gracious, old-world elegance on the Gold Level with superb hors d'oeuvres in the evening, and pet friendly rooms. Gorgeous sunsets from the rooftop fitness center. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is ideal directly across from Neiman Marcus and Tiffany's - doesn't get much better than this.
