Copley House is located in Back Bay, one of the most beautiful district in Boston. The room is like a little apartment: bed, TV, small table, kitchenette (microwave, toaster, fridge, sink, ecc.) and bathroom. The wifi worked perfectly and the receptionist was amazing: he gave us every info we needed and was super nice.

We mostly enjoyed our stay at Copley House for our short, first time visit with family members. We shared a Suite with Vermont cousins. My husband and I slept in the living room on the sofa-bed with which we wrestled to open and then couldn't close the next morning. (Also, my husband is 5'9" and the sofa-bed was a bit... More

We stayed in a small apartment-like room on the third floor at 239 West Newton. It is cute and comfortable. There is no elevator so there is a trek up two flights of stairs. There is a small living/dining room with the bedroom off of that. The kitchen is a small galley type and has several small appliances (coffee maker,... More

We stayed here several nights in August and it was a very good choice. The price is good (compared to other hotels in Boston, which is a very expensive city as far as accommodation is concerned). It was clean, quiet and the best thing, it was located just one block of the metro station. Shops and grocery stores are also... 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.
