The hotel

Dating back to 1912, the Fairmont Copley Plaza is a historic landmark in itself. Step through the grand front doors and prepared to be wowed by the beautifully elegant lobby. Step back out the doors, and you’ll find yourself in Back Bay — one of Boston’s best areas for boutique shopping, eating and drinking. After a day of exploring, you’ll find a welcome retreat here, with a rooftop health club with views over the city, and spacious, comfy rooms to get some well-earned rest before heading back out again to explore in the morning.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful location, amazing service, perfect housekeeping. Enjoyed everything about staying here. The bar downstairs is one of my favorite bars in Boston. Tarek at the front desk was incredibly thoughtful and helpful each day of my stay.

If you're looking for a central place in Boston this is the place to stay! The only reason it is not 5 stars is we had a standard room and it was very small - perfect for 1 person but not two. Front desk was very friendly. Love the fact that they have a four legged friend at times in the lobby - can't help but put a smile on your face!
