Copley "House" is a group of apartments in houses in the Copley Square neighborhood. The location is superb, within easy walking distance of the Boston Fine Arts Museum, Copley Square (with Trinity Church, Old South church, and the Boston Public Library - the latter well worth seeing for its art and architecture), Back Bay shops and restaurants, and the Boston Common. In good weather it would be feasible to walk to Beacon Hill, Chinatown, and beyond, and non-walkers can use the nearby "T" stop (Boston subway). Our "medium studio" apartment was quiet, clean, and reasonably priced, a parking space right on the property a couple of steps from the house was available for just $15 per day extra, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
Now, the particular townhouse where we stayed (215 West Newton, a block down from the main office) is probably more than a century old, and although renovated it had some disadvantages typical of a multi-apartment renovation from that era: the entrance door opened the wrong way into the small kitchen space; there was little hot water at morning times of peak use; and the window blinds didn't permit fully darkening the sleeping area. Also, the policy is not to confirm availability of the excellent, inexpensive parking described above until the morning of the rental. (If it hadn't been available, the off-site alternatives would have been much more expensive and further away.)
These disadvantages were minor compared to the advantages noted above. We would certainly stay at Copley House again.
