My family stayed at the Fairmont Copley over the Christmas holiday and chose to stay on the gold floor. We found the gold floor to be a great value and an outstanding experience. The lounge is warm and cozy, the staff was extraordinary. They treated us a family, we used their concierge services to obtain tickets to a basketball game...

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Breakfast at the hotel's restaurant was great - definitely recommend the French toast. The large gym has views of downtown Boston and is a good place to grab a cool towel and a piece of fruit.

My wife and I decided to take a quick trip to Boston to stay for a Sunday evening. Prior to our stay we would oftentimes go into the sitting area by the reception desk to warm up with hot chocolate.

Stayed at the Copley for a bridesmaid weekend. This hotel has gorgeous decorations and a rich history. The walls and ceilings of the lobby are gorgeous. The service is great. We had cocktails at the hotel bar-highly recommend the grapefruit How Do You Do and the spicy margarita. The location is central to lots of fun things in Boston.

Attended a wedding at Boston Public Library, and the hotel was recommended for guests. The location was perfect, it is across the street from BPL.

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.
