I stayed at the Firmont Copley for 4 nights on a business trip and enjoyed every minute of it. The common areas are gorgeous and full of style, history, and elegance. The staff are extraordinarily courteous and friendly anywhere in the hotel. The rooms are updated and nice, especially the bathroom. The mini-fridge is stocked with beer/wine/liquor shots and sodas,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

They don't make hotels like this anymore...When you walk in, you are blown away by the lobby. The lobby is seriously beautiful, and you feel transported. The front desk staff are lovely, and they take down your cell phone so you can text then with any problems. Rooms are very nice, and the bathrooms are marble. The rooftop gym is...

We stayed here for a conference. The conference room was gorgeous. Very relaxing be surrounded by such beautiful architecture. This hotel location couldn't be better, so close to Newbury street and prudential center.

I recently had a girls weekend in Boston. We loved staying at the Fairmont. The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel itself is beautiful and we loved historic charm. The staff were all courteous and helpful, although I do wish someone had mentioned the late parking charge at some point, it may not have made any difference but I...

Been a year since staying here and, must say, the accommodations this visit were far better than last (last year there were literally thread bare...kid you not...towels in the bathroom). As noted by everyone, the lobby of this building is beautiful. The staff runs lukewarm to very friendly and helpful...hate that one of the first things always "suggested" upon checking...

I stayed at this outstanding property during a recent convention in Boston. The meeting was in South Boston, and I took the T daily. I know Boston well since I did some of my medical training there, so I knew this area well. This is an older, stately hotel with a very ornate lobby. The rooms are spacey and very...

I recently gave a presentation at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. I didn't stay there however, as I live in Boston. The lobby was stunning with gorgeous architecture. The food tastings were delicious and the glass of wine was top notch. It's was a ritzy experience for sure!

Hotel is in a great location, great beds and bath, we were able to walk to numerous sites and restaurants. Easy parking, just a very pleasant experience. Not too pricey either. The concierge was helpful regarding the best ways to get to certain places with little trouble. He mentioned Uber a few times....

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.
