So, the Fairmont is a historic hotel on the Registry of historic places in Boston. I'm told that Many a Business Deal has been struck in their amazing lounge/bar and you can feel that vibe while sitting in the big comfy bar stools sipping on one of their signature cocktails. As for the rooms, they are clean and surprisingly spacious... More

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

Where to start, the entire staff is trained to anticipate their guests needs and to deliver without hesitation, from making phone calls, to getting a dress ready for a wedding and then the reception. It was entirely seamless and gracious. The Fairmont took care of us and treated us as VIP's. Have stayed in 5 star properties before, The Fairmont... More

I stayed here on a business trip, so fortunately I didn't have to pay for the room, but it was one of my favorite hotels in the US. The hotel itself it absolutely beautiful, the service is fantastic, and the rooms are gorgeous & quiet. I had a pretty basic room package, but I still had massive windows in both... More

We booked this through an online service for a luxurious getaway in Boston. What a mistake! We were charged almost double for an ordinary room. The lobby is beautiful and the bed was good but that's all I can say. Not only are the prices posted at the hotel cheaper by HUNDREDS of dollars, they said it was a best... More

This is an impressive hotel with a great location for tourists -we found we could walk everywhere from here. The public areas are beautiful and convey a real sense of history. The concierges were so helpful and friendly providing us with maps, directions and suggestions - we loved the dog too! Our room (a Fairmont) was smaller than we had... More

My stay at Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston was short, but very nice. The staff at the hotel was wonderful. The rooftop gym was very nice, with both cardio machines and free weights available. A nice addition was the free fruit provided in the gym as well.

when i think Fairmont, I think of extravagant, being pampered. At the time of booking, because of it being prime tourist season, all the hotels four stars are all the same price range for the area i want. Location is perfect and in a relatively safe area. The lobby is gorgeous and staff are on the most part, friendly. The... More

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.
