We've always heard about how great Fairmont is and this time visiting Boston, we finally came to see how it lives up to the reputation. Gorgeous hotel, love the opulent lobby with fresh flowers, and we heard this hotel has lovely history. Comfy bed and amazing decor, bathroom is quite basic though. Service is really good and helpful. The lobby...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 December 2016

4 years ago I stayed at this hotel over Thanksgiving weekend and reviewed it on Tripadvisor. I enjoyed my stay then, and I enjoyed it even more this time. I stayed on a club floor, and even before I arrived I received an email from Jasna asking if I needed anything for the upcoming stay. I actually said to someone...

We love staying at the Fairmont Copley when travelling through Boston. The hotel and rooms take you back to earlier times. There is a lovely history to them without being "old" and dated. The service is very good. On our latest visit our room wasn't ready at check in time and we seemed to wait for quite a while in...

Took me a while to get to this but I have been meaning to write how amazing our stay was. We have been going to Fairmont Copley Plaza in the fall for the past several years. Last November we once again treated to amazing service & super friendly staff. Most amazing was Stephanie @ the front desk. She made us...

We took a chance and rented a room on New Year's Eve knowing full well we would have to deal with some partiers, no problem. When I woke up at 3:30 A.M. to the smell of smoke and the room next to us was still going at it, I opened the door to the hallway and much to my dismay...

We stayed overnight at the Fairmont Copley for a wedding. Awesome!! The hotel is gorgeous. The food was excellent. The wedding was over the top. Our room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. You will have a long walk down hallways to your room -but that is part of the charm. Staff were great. Valet car service was very efficient....

We have stayed in Boston many times, but we will definitely return to the historic Fairmont Copley Plaza! They welcomed our dogs and treated them as guests. With Copley Square across the street to walk the dogs, the location is perfect. Every member of the staff was very helpful and friendly. They seemed genuinely happy that we were there. The...

Forgot to review one of my new favorite hotels! We stayed in December to celebrate two of our birthdays. Loved the old world charm of this hotel and of course the pups stole our hearts. The decorations and flowers for Christmas were gorgeous and the service excellent. Also a great location if you are seeing a show in the theatre...

We love staying at a Fairmont property ! We met Carley Copley in the lobby. She is a sweet black lab and we enjoyed petting her each day ! The location was perfect for us. We happened to be in Boston during Storm Stella and experienced our first blizzard. The staff supplied us with extra water and snack boxes. We...

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
