“Good hotel in a great location”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

My boyfriend, friend from VA and I recently stayed here during our trip to Boston last week. I had a very difficult time locating a hotel room that had two queen beds in Boston, but after a search on Trip Advisor found this particular hotel. It was located in the area that I wanted (Back Bay), so I quickly booked it.

The service of the hotel is average - the gals behind the desk were polite but not very warm or welcoming. One in particular seemed very young and stressed at times, which may explain why she didn't always seem very friendly.

The room was a good size for a suite and it was clean apart for dirty decorative pillows that were placed on the bed upon our arrival. I was surprised that the housekeeping staff didn't notice this, so I quickly put them away and off of the bed for the duration of our stay.

The location of the hotel is really good - it's located next to the Boston public library and very close to nearby shops, restaurants and Newberry St. The ice machine was easily accessible and just a few floors down from our suite. The laundry facility was very small (just one washing machine and one dryer), but it was on the second floor and not busy during the times we went.

The housekeeping service was good and overall I enjoyed our brief stay there. One thing to note is that the rooms do not have safes in them ... if you want your valuables locked, you will have to use a safety deposit box that is located downstairs.

The staff allowed us to check out a few hours late on the day of our departure, and this really helped us since our flight to NYC was later in the afternoon. Despite the dirty decorative pillow and lack of safe in the room, I'd recommend staying here for anyone who is considering a trip to Boston!

I am a Marriott Rewards member and as such I stayed 2 nights in the Courtyard Boston Copley Square. It's in a great location in what I think is the nicest part of the city. However, it's about a 15 minute walk to Quincy Market and the touristy locations.

The hotel is clean, room was a bit small, but they have a nice lobby that you can watch a big screen TV in. When my husband and I stayed here we watched March Madness on the big screen while eating cannolis from Mike's Pastry shop in the evening one night.

Breakfast was pricey - and they had given us free breakfast. To our dismay, it was only free for one of us. Kind of odd but we paid.

For a brief weekend trip, I would recommend the hotel and would go back. If you are staying more than 2 nights, get a suite or look at a different hotel.

I have been to Boston many times and prefer to stay on Copley Square area as this is close to many of the places we like visit. The Courtyard here is in a great spot two blocks from Newberry street and close to the shopping for my wife. The Marriott is near by but so much bigger and harder to get in and out of the hotel each time. The Courtyard is a much bette size and they have queen size beds for the family that needs two beds. That is a huge bonus for us when we travel with the kids. I would highly recomment this hotel as it was clean, friendly and not too expensive.

Stayed there for 4 nights to attend a conference, location is good and services are fine. Breakfast is too good. WiFi is free in lobby and speed is good for Skype etc. Concierge was rude but front desk staff was friendly enough to compensate.

The hotel is situated very centrally and is a great base to explore Boston on foot. The room was very comfortable and reasonably spacious. I only had breakfast in the hotel once and whilst there was a lot on offer I thought that it was quite expensive as were the bar prices. The staff were very helpful.

This hotel is located in a good neighbor, and is convenient location for spending the day exploring the city. It was very clean, safe, and the staff was very helpful (holding our luggage for us an extra day so we could explore more).
