“Nice small hotel, great location, some...”
Reviewed August 11, 2010

Nice small hotel, great location, some small issues with tv, sheets, and tp roll holder...but we did get to check in early on a very hot day, and leave our things at the hotel the day we departed, for pick up later... Staff very nice and professional. A Shaws Supermarket one block away, Newbury St two blocks, really a good overall experience.

Everything about my stay at this hotel was great. I travelled to Boston and Rhode Island and stayed here at the beginning of my trip and returned for the last night. The rooms are quite spacious, quiet, very clean and very comfortable. There's free Wi-Fi everywhere in the hotel which was helpful since it made it easy to do a little work while I was away. Location is perfect--close to everything. The staff were really wonderful, personable, courteous, and extremely accommodating with anything you may need. I travel often for work and leisure and this was one of the best hotel experiences. I highly recommend staying here if you're traveling to Boston.

The Copley Square Hotel is a lovely medium-sized hotel in an unparalleled location (and you are paying in part for the location--it’s not inexpensive). It’s comfortable, bordering on luxurious; I stayed in the smallest room, which wasn’t actually all that small, and which -- although it was supposed to have an “interior” view -- in fact looked out over the street. Friendly service, appealing lobby and hallways, flat-screen TV with better-than-usual selection of cable channels, nice bath (no tub in my room, which was fine), and free wi-fi throughout. From here, you can walk up and down Newbury Street and get the subway anywhere. It’s a nice place to come home to after a full day of work (or play).

The staff at the Copley Square Hotel were terrific! They always greeted us and were super friendly.
The beds were ridiculously comfortable and the room, though oddly shaped, was very nice. The bathroom was large and awfully spacious (for a hotel bathroom).
I had a bottle of wine with me but forgot a wine opener. We called down to the front desk to ask for a wine opener. The guy who came up (in just a few minutes!) opened the bottle for us and even gave us a wine opener to keep. He was even non-plussed at the sight of my very gay, bare chested friend lying on the bed.
They had complimentary coffee in the morning and a free wine tasting hour in the evening.
It is pricey, though. If you can get a deal like we did, definitely stay here!
Great staff! Great time!

This is a fine little hotel in a terrific location. We stayed three nights in July 2010. The room was a bit small, the TV reception was lousy and the bathroom was cramped (also, the toilet paper holder was busted). But the room was very comfortable, the bed and linens were excellent, everything was clean and the staff was terrific. The hotel offers room service for breakfast and dinner only, but when we wanted a club sandwich for lunch, the staff got one for us. Also, when we had an emergency after leaving -- we had left our passports in the room safe and were headed for Canada -- the staff got them and helped us get them by FedEx the next day. It's a great place to stay for the money.

The Copley Square Hotel is our "go to" hotel every time we visit Boston. As a MA native, I know there are tons of options for staying in the city, but the Copley Square is second to none. The very-well trained staff are extremely attentive from the moment you walk in the door. Easy check-in process and very trendy space...The rooms are very modern but keep the old school charm of the hotel before the renovations. The "wine down" in the lobby is a great bonus and the entire hotel has free wi-fi! Minibar on the lobby level is a great pre-dinner place for drinks in an awesome setting. Being a New Yorker now, it's hard to find a bar that compares to all of the trendy spots in Manhattan, but the Copley Square has it down! The valet here also has it down - we needed a taxi and he actually sprinted down the street to another hotel to get a taxi for us in a hurry -- talk about customer service!! We will be back to the Copley Square Hotel soon...our only choice for accommodations in Boston!

Not your fancy big, spacious modern hotel, but a modern version of the original Copley Square Hotel. Superb service and very comfortable, especially considering the old hotel had smaller rooms than we may be used to today. Very good food and a very much "In" nightlife at the in-house Mini Bar & Lounge. Convenient to everything. All-in-all a neat place to stay!
