“Grand Dame in the heart of Copley Square”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I made 4 trips to Boston in a two month span of time. (Not my typical travel schedule). For my "Fairmont Trip" I took my teenage daughter for a fun weekend getaway. We had a great time shopping and sight-seeing. We flew in to Boston on the red-eye and got to the Fairmont well before check-in time. The staff were friendly and kept our luggage and took it to the room for us when it was ready, while we got started shopping. We were very pleased when we returned to a beautiful room. I had seen the pictures of the rooms on TripAdvisor and worried that the color scheme would make the room feel cold and stiff. Not at all! The colors were nice and luxurious and the textures of the fabrics soften the gray/silver tones. We loved the two sinks in the all-marble bathroom, the comfortable beds and view of the hotel and Trinity Church reflecting in the Hancock Tower. Between the great room, bathrobes and our jet lag we had to force ourselves back out for dinner.

We visited this hotel in early December and were enchanted! The rooms have been recently remodeled without losing the old-world charm. Our only complaint was trying to have an in-hotel dinner. The food was expensive but fine, but the environment was overcrowded and noisy. This was disappointing as the evening was rainy and we hoped to stay in. The restaurant-bar is VERY popular with the evening crowd, so do have an alternate plan!

When we arrived here my wife was suitably impressed, as was I.
After we had checked in and got a room upgrade my beloved announced she had died and gone to heaven as this was truly her sort of hotel...in fairness I suspect this is every girls sort of hotel as it is truly spectacular, we had a ball and whilst the credit card wept it was worth it ..do try the Oak room and have a drink in the bar

We spent the 31st here and were treated like royalty. The location is ideal as they are surrounded by four star restaurants, and we were close to much of the new year's festivities, e.g. Parade, ice sculptures, etc. The staff were all very professional. Both our room and the lobby were elegant.

Spent two nights for New Years. Did not eat at Oak Room. Hotel location, staff, hospitality, security and overall ambiance was classic and top notch. As someone local to Boston, this hotel is the epitome of elegance.

The hotel is gorgeous, luxurious, well located, clean and the staff is very professional. The room is very comfortable. You, hardly go to find a hotel of this high standard by this price, so it is also a great deal. I was in a room on the first floor and sometimes i've heard the music from the bar and that's is a bit annoying. So, I advise you to stay on the second floor up. The internet is paid and is expensive, 15 dollars per day, that's not cool at all.
