Copley Square Hotel

Boston, USA

The hotel

Classic meets contemporary at this boutique pad in Boston’s Back Bay district. Much like the city that surrounds it, this historic hotel comes with a thoroughly modern attitude. Dating back to 1891, and with refined décor that befits its age, it keeps up with the times with free WiFi, a fitness centre, and a complimentary breakfast bar, where you can top up with hot drinks and granola bars before exploring Boston and shopping on nearby Newbury Street. And, when you return, the nightly Wine Down hour is the perfect way to prepare for a night in one of the district’s upscale dining, drinking, or dancing spots.

I stayed at the Copley Square Hotel for 6 nights in May, and really enjoyed it. I believe it is one of the oldest hotels is Boston, but the refurbishments are in keeping with the old style. It was spotlessly clean, and very conveniently placed for shopping, transportation and sight seeing. The staff were friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make your stay exceptional. I am missing the wine down each night, when between the hours of 5 pm and 6 pm they offer complimentary wine in the lobby. I have seen a few complaints about the breakfast, but I thought it was great. If you are after a hot breakfast, this is not the place, but each morning there were pastries, muesli bars, yoghurt, fresh fruit, tea and coffee, orange juice as well as bottles of water. There are cardboard plates for you to use, and you sit in the lobby where there are plenty of tables and chairs. I think that this is plenty, but if you want more, there are plenty of restaurants close by. The only complaint I would have is the bathroom was very small. The room was a generous size, with nice crisp sheets and fluffy towels. I noticed that just about all hotels in USA quote the room rate without the taxes included. They think they are offering a lower price than 3rd party sites, but in Australia the taxes are included, so you are better off to use one of those. If I was to return to Boston, this hotel would be my first choice. Read less

We really enjoyed our stay after a two week road trip around New England. Located in the beautiful Back Bay area of Boston you can walk into downtown and the Freedom Trail and also easily to Fenway Park. The room was spacious and very clean with a great King bed.

Stayed on two separate occasions at this Back Bay hotel. The downstairs area is quite basic as is the continental breakfast. The room is modest size but well set out and equipped (would have liked a coffee machine). However, the price is great considering how expensive save hotels are in this area. Very much food value for money at Copley Square… Read more

I've long been an advocate Back Bay as the place to stay for a Boston visitor, and have often looked to but not booked at Copley Sq. As luck would have it the opportunity came and now I'm sold as this being the best spot in the neighbourhood.
