3 day stay from the UK with friends. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, rooms large and spacious with bathrobes etc. The best part was it's location right in the centre of Boston within walking distance of everywhere you wanted to go. Great restaurant and cocktail bar as well but pricey.

After checking in and out of the Marriott Boston Copley Plaza within the space of an hour we were thrilled to discover just what we looking for in the Fairmont Copley Square Hotel.

Very nice hotel, as should be expected for this level. ALL the staff was very helpful, gracious, and welcoming. We even checked in early (1:30 P.M.) Rooms were smallish but well appointed. Remember, this is an older, downtown hotel. Lobby was quite grand, and they were beginning to roll out the Christmas decorations! Our 2nd floor room, king bed, (227)...

This was my third stay here and I always enjoy the location, the style and level of service. Great rooms, wonderful service and there isn't really a better location than this. Everything is walking distance, shops, art and culture. Walking distance to the Freedom Trail as well. The Oak bar is always a good choice to wind down after a...

We paid extra for club level and still had to purchase food to get through Thanksgiving Day without starving. Torn curtains and worn furniture in Club Lounge. We had to endure what should have been a quiet holiday with leftovers, tater tots, and a barking dog throughout the day. So no Thanksgiving nap for us and when it was time...

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.
