“Copley Square's three gems shine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2009

Copley Square is not on the Freedom Trail, but is not too far from Boston Common and is located in the Back Bay neighborhood. We saw it on the Duck Tour and returned on Monday morning before we flew home. The main three things to see are the Old South Church, Trinity Church and Boston Public Library.

The two churches both are beautiful on the outside and inside -- if you like architecture in the least, these are worth a visit. To visit Old South Church is free -- Trinity is $6 per person for either a self-guided or guided tour. Both are gorgeous.

We didn't have time to go inside Boston Public Library, but it is beautiful from the outside. According to our Duck Tour guide, it was the first truly free public library in the U.S. and holds millions and millions of titles.

Copley Square has a nice green space between the library and Trinity Church with a park-like feel and fountains on one side. Would be a nice place to rest your feet or read a book.

“New star in Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2009

We spent a weekend at the recently refurbished hotel and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The kitchen has not opened yet, but the concierge recommended some great nearby restaurants to us. Our room was really nice. Nice appointments and very comfortable. I'm a sucker for a great and invigorating shower, and this was the best one yet. I'd highly recommend this hotel, plus it's near most everything you want to see or go to.

“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2006

My wife and I stayed at the Copley in May 2005. We found it a friendly, clean hotel with courteous staff. The room we were in was on the small side but adequate. Breakfast was served by a friendly and helpful lady who made a fuss of us and made us feel wanted. A nearby shopping mall was great in wet weather and there was easy access into central Boston.
