“Worth the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

It is well worth the entrance fee, as not only are the views spectacular but the displays etc are really interesting.
This spot is about half way on a walk from Fenway down to Faneuil Hall, and makes a great stop off for a drink in the food court and a little retail therapy.

“Best City Shopping Experience Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Actually this is a review of the Prudential Center/Copley Place/Hynes Auditorium complex that runs from Copley Place on Dartmouth Street all the way to the Sheraton Hotel. There is an incredible amount of stores, restaurants of all price ranges, a food court, all connected thru skywalks. You can get from the train station to the Sheraton, about a 5-6 block walk, without being outdoors for more than a few yards. You can walk between the Sheraton, Marriott, Westin and Copley Place hotels using this complex. It was an incredible experience and SOOO convenient.

“Great view of the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We liked the commentary on the handheld audio devices and the short video of Boston's history. One side was closed for a private party but the price was discounted to offset that lack of view.
