“An interesting part of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Our hotel was located off Copley Square and I found it a fascinating place. I witnessed a demonstration against violence in Gaza, I saw a music video being performed and I went to the farmers market their on Friday afternoon. Lots of great shopping and restaurants nearby as well

“Worth while visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

For those not staying in the Back Bay Area it is worth making the time to visit Copley Square where you will see Trinity Church, John Hancock Tower and Boston Public Library. While in the area it is also worth visiting Commonwealth Avenue and Newbury Street. The square is also flanked by many nice hotels and restaurants

“Eclectic Architecture---Old and New”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Very historic and attractive place. The Copley Square Mall has mostly upscale stores. Finding bargains is not a good objective for shopping there.

“Nice area with plenty to see”

This is a great area to be walking about - I love the parks and the buildings that one can walk on foot to take a few good pictures.
