The Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel is well situated in downtown Boston near the Prudential Center, the Hynes Convention Center, and a number of other hotels. I had a single room with a King sized bed on the 18th floor, with a nice view of one section of the downtown area (South Boston). I stayed at the hotel while attending a conference at the Hynes Convention Center, and one of the great aspects of the stay was that although a blizzard was raging outside for two days, I could walk to the convention center, to restaurants, and to nearby hotels through connecting indoor corridors, walkways, and bridges. I didn't even have to take my coat with me; I just watched the snow pile up from large picture windows in the various buildings and walkways and enjoyed the view of the city covered in snow without having to step outside and deal with it once.
The hotel was very clean, the room was nicely furnished, and small touches made me appreciate the room more than usual -- no cracked tiles in the bathroom, no dirt on the walls, a really clean, well-cared for room and hotel. Service was fine, and there was a large and well outfitted fitness room with elliptical machines, bikes, treadmills, and a small but lap-possible pool on the 5th floor. Only a few minor things keep me from rating the hotel five stars -- the bar downstairs was nice -- attractive, contemporary, busy, and urban, with a lighted backdrop behind the serving area, but the drinks were expensive (and for that money they weren't very strong). Also, the bottle of water left in the room was even more expensive than usual if you touched it (which I didn't). Finally, access to the Internet cost $12.95 a day, and although I understand this is standard for many downtown hotels, I really don't like being charged for Internet access when you're already paying good money for a room (I paid a conference rate for my room, and it was still about $250 a night after taxes, fees, and the Internet were added).
Besides those price-related details, this was a great, beautiful, clean, efficient hotel in a fantastic location. I'd stay there again.
