“Great hotel, top notch employees, unbeatable location”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We stayed at the Copley from December 6 – 9th, and it was, in all ways, a great stay. I had e-mailed ahead of time to ask them if they would do luggage storage as we were flying in early and flying out late, and they replied from the general e-mail address very quickly. Upon arrival at the hotel, it was an impressive, cozy atmosphere walking in and we were greeted with a smile and a genuine warmth from everyone. Every single time you walked in or out of that hotel they greeted you with a sincere warmth and bright smiles. The hotel itself has character and seems to have managed to integrate the class of the original architecture of the building with very tasteful modern fixtures and decorations that work well together. Even just to sit in the lobby area in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee was very comfortable and relaxing. The room that we had was a smaller room, but I found it comfortable and cozy. My only negative (for lack of a better word) would be that I would prefer the TV across from the end of the bed rather than off to the side of the room. I found that set up a little awkward, but it certainly didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the stay. The bed was comfortable, and the pillows plentiful and fluffy. The hotel is located literally steps from a grocery store and the Prudential Centre and a mere few minutes walk from Copley Square and Copley subway station. Upon preparing to check out of the hotel, when we were storing our luggage for the day until our flight in the evening, they offered to have the Town Car pick us up for our ride to the airport and it had a flat rate of $35, so we happily accepted their offer. I would definitely stay here again, without hesitation!

I recently attended a conference 200 meters from this hotel. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, The hotel offers free wifi, hot chocolate and if you run in the morning a little area with water and things, nice touch. The hotel is older so the rooms are smaller, but with good character, clean and provide a warm feeling.
The hotel itself has great character, but really it is the people that made it a great stay.

Well done!

Centrally located in Copley Square, this updated and trendy hotel gives you more than you expect.
The customer service was amazing and the rooms were much larger and much more elegantly appointed than I had expected.
There was a gym on the second floor and complimentary coffee in the lobby every morning and wine tasting every night.
The Mini-Bar, the lounge in the hotel, is a local hot spot, so there is always a place to go out to in Boston without having to cab it in bad weather.
Great value for the price, and perfect location.
If you are driving there, make sure you check out the street layout as making the wrong turn will get you onto the Mass Pike heading West if you aren't careful.

Room Tip: The "11" rooms (ex. 311,411,511, etc.) look out onto two streets so engage the fan on the...

We chose this hotel because of the location and reviews. My daughter and I were on a mini-vacation and wanted to be in a central location. The hotel was excellent in every way - location, customer service, amenities (especially the daily wine social at 5 pm), restaurant, turn-down service, etc. Although it is in an older building, the hotel has modern decor with much character. The room were small which for us was not a problem but may be an issue to larger people. We would definitely stay here again!

One of my fondest memories of Boston was to stay in the Copley Square Hotel.
The year was actually 1981. not 2013, but I'll never forget my lovely experience.
The rooms were quaint and old and I couldn't help but wonder what famous person might have slept in my room before?

We chose this hotel because of the location - near the train station as we planned to go to New York next by train. So the location turned out superb. Everything you need is near - shops, restaurants, mall, grocery store. We really liked dinning out in the neighborhood of Newbury Street or running in the Public Garden via Commonwealth Avenue.
The rooms are small, we had a tiny one with a small bathroom. But it was okay for sleep. It was especially good when we arrived from California early in the morning and got our room right away! The hotel offers free coffee in the lobby in the morning and they have wine tasting hour everyday. Nice tradition! Also they give you free water bottle and a newspaper everyday. The hotel also has a bar with a separate entrance and this place is popular in the evening.

The location of the hotel is in the shopping district (Prudential Center) near Copley Square and the Public Library. We were a bit disappointed in the rooms (very small not a lot of room to navigate). The decor is dark and not a lot of lighting. Beds could be more comfortable. The staff, while pleasant, was not well trained. We did not learn about the wine available in the lobby until we checked out and overheard another guest being told.
