My wife, Donna, and I stayed at the Fairmont Copley for two nights recently, Friday September 11 - Sunday September 13. After dropping our youngest at Tufts for her first year that Thursday, we came home to an empty house. A home normally filled with the joyous noise and activity of our three kids was suddenly quiet. To delay the inevitable, I chose to run away and surprise Donna with two nights at the Fairmont Copley. I secretly made the reservation weeks prior after seeing the 108th birthday re-opening events. Pleasant and reassuring interaction with the health check staff at the door; really appreciated the safety measures. I gotta say, the entrance is fabulous. Crisp colors, beautiful ceilings, gold accents, the marble work. Quite a first impression. Felt like we were going to be living large this weekend, and did we ever. Anna at the Front Desk was warm and welcoming, making us feel right at home. So pleasant and understanding, a real asset to your team. We were assigned a room on the 5th floor, clean and spacious, tastefully decorated. All the right touches. Great bathroom and accessories. Did not lack for a thing. And after a very long walk around town on Friday, upon our return we were greeted at our door with a bottle of prosecco and two flutes, accompanied by a very thoughtful personal note from Anna. What a surprise! Made for an early night, though. Wanted to take advantage of everything at the Fairmont Copley, so we had breakfast both mornings in the Oak Long Bar + Kitchen. Now that is an impressive spot to eat. The copper topped bar, coffered ceilings, barrel vaults, and an incredible staff front and back of house. Donna and I just could not get over the Lobster Eggs Benny - probably the best morning plate I've ever had. Could have stayed for hours. Please pass along our compliments to the entire crew. Attentive and professional. Almost sad when we checked out on Sunday, as it was such a great weekend in every way possible. Life is easy when it is full of little surprises, and everyone at the Fairmont Copley took it to the next level. Even got a quick tour on one of the signature suites on the 5th floor. Someday!! So impressed with everything you do in Boston. I am going to recommend to my kids to hold my Irish wake in one of those amazing function rooms. That'll be a party. Again, so many thanks to Anna and the rest of the Boston staff (apologies for not recording the names) at the Fairmont Copley. You are lucky to have such a dedicated group. Coupled with an amazing building, it's a little bit of heaven in a very screwed up world. Grateful for the escape. Keep up the great work, and see you all soon. With deepest gratitude and admiration, Christopher

The Fairmont Copley has always held a special place in my heart.. it is such a beautiful property in an amazing city. In the midst of these crazy times, we needed a little getaway close to home. We felt very welcomed, safe and looked after. Our room was spotless and there were indications all over the room of what had been done to ensure our safety. Our temperatures were checked each time we entered the building, and, although everyone was practicing social distancing and wearing masks, you could still feel the warmth and smiles. Well done!

Everything about our minimony at the Fairmont was excellent - from the event planner to reservations staff, everything was well taken care of. We felt comfortable in common spaces (everyone wearing masks and following protocol). The only minor issue was we were not able to get an outside space for dining despite requesting it months prior. But, we generally felt OK in the restaurant.

This hotel is probably one of the most dog friendly hotels I’ve been too with the exception of the late Doris Day’s hotel in Carmel California the cypress inn! At the Copley Fairmont just about everyone had there pup! And the place looked a 5 star perfectly spotless hotel! Everyone we met was super nice!! I would definitely recommend this place!!

We had our wedding at Copley! I cannot say enough good things about the location, the staff, the hotel rooms, and Alice- our wedding planner. The whole experience was amazing, especially during a pandemic! We are forever grateful we were able to have our intimate ceremony and dinner here at Copley. Thank you so much!
