This is a truly elegant Grand Dame of a hotel. It is simply gorgeous. And it has been made over with all modern conveniences. Elegance meets modern! The new restaurant and bar are hoping day and night with modern American cuisine and first rate cocktails. While the hotel is always busy with society events given its a m aging ballrooms,... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2016

I travel to Boston frequently for work and this was my first stay at the Fairmont and it was excellent! I was upgraded to the gold level which had a private lounge, snacks, drinks and breakfast. My room was large and had any amenity that I could want. The location was great! I was able to walk around, there was... More

This is the best hotel in Boston. The most important thing to know is the staff is amazing! Every person who works there was kind, helpful, efficient and enthusiastic about the hotel, Boston, and their job; the staff made my trip special. The location is wonderful. The rooms are fantastic: The bed was comfortable and the sheets were really soft.... More

We stayed here prior to a cruise out of Boston. The lobby was beautiful and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions. Our checkin was quick. We were able to checkin at 11:00 am. However, the room was very disappointing. The room needs rearranged! The room is small and the bed took up most of it.... More

I selected this hotel because of its proximity to the client I was visiting. I stayed four nights in a "deluxe" room. I paid $305/night plus tax, non-refundable. I requested a king bed at check-in but was told the only available room in my "category" was an ADA king for $40/night more. I passed. The room was very small; there... More

This stately Back Bay classic hotel has stood on the edge of Cooley Square for 100 years and remains an elegant, big city grand hotel worth visiting. A recent renovation has left the public spaces in perfect condition. The bar, restaurant and ballroom all measure up to their 5-star status. The hotel management is clearly managed and they are outgoing... More

Great rooms great hotel. Well, worth looking at the club level rooms. Service is second to none and the hotel while old is well presented. Nothing is a problem for the staff and they make sure you know what is going on in the city or where to eat. Again a great stay.

We were just staying one night as we were passing through from Cape Cod to the UK on an early next day flight. The hotel was very comfortable especially the bed. Very central available for shopping, the library and many restaurants. The only downside was the failure of the coffee machine at 5am which wasn't helpful. At least the reception... More

We have enjoyed staying in other Fairmont Hotel. This hotel had under gone a 20 million dollar renovation. The bathroom we had was very small. No space to put our toiletries, except the small window ledge. The towel were not of good quality. Bath towels were smaller than usual bath towels. We asked to have three bath towels left daily....

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.
