The Copley Square Hotel has been newly re-invented into a sophisticated contemporary hotel. The service is outstanding, and every staff member I encountered was polite, friendly and had a very positive attitude about the hotel and what they could do to make the guests enjoy their stay. This is so different from many large hotels where you check in and never see anyone unless you have a problem.
I enjoyed their daily wine receptions in the lobby where various wines were served in beautiful stemware in a relaxing setting. This was just a nice feature. Nobody was trying to sell you cases of wine or anything like that.
There were so many nice things about this hotel. There was free coffee in the lobby in the morning, a newspaper delivered during weekdays, turndown service in the evening with information left about the following day's weather and things to do in the city. Free bottled water was left in the evening, and the wifi worked very well in my room and in the lobby. The toiletries in the bathroom were of good quality and nicely scented - the kind you actually wanted to use and take home extras.
Although there is a nightclub and popular bar on the ground floor, my room was perfectly silent for the whole week I was there. There was no noise whatsoever from music in the club or other guests, If you want a quiet room at this hotel, you can definitely have one.
I didn't get to try the restaurant for dinner, although it looked attractive and welcoming. I did have a selection of appetizers and some wine for dinner one stormy night at their bar called "Minibar", and it was a really nice time. Minibar is a very trendy and popular place with the local people especially on the weekend.
The room was very nicely decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. The furniture was new and fine quality. The bathroom had a powerful shower with abundant hot water and bathtub. There were lots of big towels. Everything was extremely clean and fresh.
I believe I had the minimum rate room, and some may consider it small compared to others they stayed in, but it was fine for me. There seem to be various other rooms available at higher prices that would probably be larger with views etc.
This hotel is perfectly located in what is probably the best part of Boston. I felt totally safe walking day and night. There are many shops and restaurants of all kinds within minutes of the hotel. There are two subway lines very close to the hotel making it easy to get anywhere in the city very quickly.
This is my new favorite hotel in Boston, and I look forward to returning soon.
