The Fairmont Copley Plaza is a class act Hotel. It is elegant, historical and very much up date given it's age. All of the personnel strived to please with a smile... There is nothing I can say needs improving ---Even Carley the canine mascot was quite friendly.

This vacation was saved by the great folks who lead and staff the Fairmont Gold floor/lounge - they made up for a host of basic services never met within the main Copley Plaza Hotel. More on that later. First, check in was nothing short of terrible - handled by a Fairmont President's Club area staffed with summer college (and certainly... More

A pleasant return. Fairmont Copley Plaza is our best place in Boston and hotel staff made special this return to me and my family with a perfect Gold experience at the 4th floor. Among all services perfect and warm bell and concierge.

Absolutely stunning stay; upgraded to a King room-fantastic location central to all amenities. Staff were an example to the hotelier industry, please especially commend Jason for us who couldn't have been more helpful. Can't wait to return.

The hotel was fantastic and an ideal location, near the highway and T line.. The staff was very helpful and curtious. I plan to visit my daughter next year and then visit Boston again with the intent to stay at this hotel. The only negative I have is the cost of leaving the car overnight. But I think the cost...

I really would like to give this 5 stars due to some exceptional staff but am trying to be more constructive to help someone considering this for a future stay. Once you decide on a budget, and this is top end, there is still quite a choice of hotels in Boston. I choose this due to the location, a special... More

A home away from home! Service and accommadations were great. Enjoyed the fact this hotel is not far from any services or other eating establishments. Quality of care was evident with everyone i met at the hotel. the 2 mascots were also very friendly and added a feeling of home to our visit.

This hotel is fabulously refurbished. Really, really lovely. The room I stayed in- a queen room- was beautifully appointed, albeit snug. The size was just fine for one but would not have been adequate for two. My knees were mere inches from the wall when availing myself for the loo. My husband would not have been comfortable. The attached restaurant,... More

A great location for exploring Boston. We flew into Boston and caught the shuttle bus from the airport right to the front of the hotel and only ten dollars each. Excellent shopping and restaurants close by. Rooms were traditional and bathrooms sumptuous. Fresh coffee in the room. The decor of the hotel is stunning. The restaurant had a great menu... More

We really enjoyed this hotel and would probably stay here again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a great location-we could walk everywhere you would want to go while visiting Boston. We were close to the Public Garden, shopping, and the Freedom Trail. We upgraded to a Jr. King Suite, and thank goodness we did! I had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fairmont Copley Plaza has been a symbol of Boston's rich history and elegance since its gala opening in 1912.

Our dedicated staff delivers incomparable hospitality, impeccable service and attention to detail to ensure your stay is perfect.
