If you aren't looking for a normal hotel but to live like a local this is a great choice. Copley house is actually 7 different apartment houses. Four are on West Newton St, two in St Botolph St and one in St Stephen St. We had a bedsit in 171 St Botolph St. There are no elevators so unless you... More

Copley house was an interesting and appreciated choice while on a trip to boston. Offers apartments along a street, with a top street office address with representatives who bring you to your apartment down the street. On previous trips, I've spent more money on smaller, more generic rooms while also having to pay for valet. Copley house offered limited parking... More

Glad you made the most of your stay, Jess!

I really appreciate your feedback, and I look forward to seeing you the next time you visit Boston! All the best,... More

The Copley House isn't the most classy of hotels/guest houses, but you can't beat the price and the location. The staff were also nice and very genuine with there offers of assistance. Would definetly stay there again.

The location of this property is perfect for exploring Boston. There is a large shopping centre with many good restaurants within a 5 minute walk, along with tube stations very close by. The hotel itself is set in a beautiful leafy street of old style apartment buildings which really does look lovely from the outside, however the room we had... More

Sorry you weren't completely impressed with your stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the location and scenery, but it's disappointing to think that your actual apartment wasn't quite as comfortable. While I can assure you that none of our maintenance projects end with patchwork, cost-cutting solutions, it is possible that some of them need another look. We review our apartments regularly...

This property is not for everyone but we thought it was a great deal in an excellent location. We were on the top floor of a vintage brownstone. My mother in law had a difficult time navigating the narrow, steep, curved flights of stairs (with luggage.) We live in an old home so are accepting of creaky, crooked floors, etc.... More

This was the perfect location for us to stay for my Boston marathon weekend. The only thing I wished we could change was to stay in a more quite apartment. We stayed on the first floor by the main entrance and it was really noisy at night. It was hard to get a good night's rest due to people walking... More

Thanks for checking in with us! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, although I'm sorry to hear that the noise level wasn't as comfortable as the rest of your room. As you might have guessed, the Back Bay is much louder than normal during marathon weekend -- I'm sure you'd be able to sleep more soundly on an average night.... More

Thanks for sharing! I'm glad our kitchen, service, and location added up to a wonderful week in the Back Bay. Almost all of our apartments have queen-size beds, which works for some people but not all. However, I am happy to report that we will be putting king-size beds in a couple of our larger apartments very soon! Also, sorry... More
