“Shopping, shopping, shopping”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

If you're looking for brand-name high end shopping, the largest collection of shops in downtown Boston is here. There's also a convention center and hotel attached, so if you're staying there for business its a great way to kill some time.

“The Glass is Now Safe”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The glass windows that used to fall out to the streets below have been fixed, and it is a good place to visit. The view from the restaurant is worth the trip. Have a cocktail and relax.

“"Short on time the Observation Deck is a must do."”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Before arriving in Boston I read a ' 24 hours in Boston' article in a local paper . This attraction in Boston was NOT mentioned in the article.I learned about it from someone staying in our accommodation.My husband and I only had a short time in Boston and I am so glad we went up to the Observation Deck. We only had time to see the city centre so it was great to see the greater Boston area from up high.A free recorded audio guide is available and short films can be viewed at your leisure.

Reviewed October 28, 2012

All newbies to Boston should try and get up here on a clear day to get a birds eye view of the city. The views are amazing and it highlights how close everything is... well worth a visit

“you have to love the Pru”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Stay at the Sheraton >Go shopping :Sacks , club monaco ,Ross ,etc andyou can get a discount card at the customer service center .Take a break at Top of the Hub restaurant and enjoy the beautiful view of Boston (rain or shine). You can take time to meditate at the St Francis Chapel ,buy a book at barnes and Nobles and go sit in the enclosed garden .Have a wounderful dinner at Legal seafood (pricey, but worthed )or go to the cheese cake factory(good quality for the price ) then have a night drink at the Sheraton bar or back Top of the Hub depending on weather .
YOU HAVE TO LOVE THE PRU,you do not even need a coat in winter and you can venture to Copley
