Westin Copley Place

Boston, USA

The hotel

If you're looking to get amongst the very best of Boston's Back Bay area then The Westin Copley Place gives you a plush platform from where to spring into all the downtown action. Boasting a AAA Four Diamond award and the only Green Seal certification in Massachusetts means that this hotel definitely has your best interests at heart, with Heavenly baths and beds adding to the contemporary comforts to be found in your guest room or suite. Aside from the accommodation, Westin Copley Place also has numerous spa and fitness facilities with the chance to borrow a cheeky pair of New Balance trainers allowing for a little bit more luggage space. Making space for dining out is also an excellent idea whilst in Boston and as you'll find a Brazilian steakhouse and Japanese restaurant on-site, as well as craft cocktails served at Bar 10, you know that this is an awesome offer that's going to be pretty hard to beat. From the views from the Pru's 50th floor to the brownstone boutiques on Newbury Street, the Westin Copley Place provides access to all of Boston, with a walkway entrance to Copley Place Mall just the tip of the iceberg with regards to things to do in the City on the Hill.

We have stayed here several times over decades. The hotel does not disappoint. We love the location, the views, and the amenities. I might say somethings have declined, but I stop short because the pandemic does make things a bit different. We hope to return.

I was in Boston for a couple of days after dropping off my son at school in western MA. This was a stay just to take a day off and get ready for a long flight back home. I stayed from Wednesday night to Friday morning and did not have issues with students in the elevators. The overwhelming impression from this stay was how "average" it was. The location of the hotel was a plus - two nearby shopping malls which can be accessed without going outside. Unlike other reviewers, I did not think there was a "wow" factor with the staff. Check in was fine. No issue. Concierge responded to questions. Nothing further. Need a cab? Advised to call Uber. There was no sense that anyone wanted to "extend an effort" to help or go the extra mile. The king size bed was not great. I like harder beds and came back with some back issues (to be fair it was either the hotel bed or the business class seat on the airplane back). Furnishings in the room were just OK and starting to look dated. I chose the Westin after looking at the Fairmont as an alternative. I will definitely try the Fairmont for my next stay and compare. Compared to other Westins around the world, I did not think this property lived up to the premium brand. Read less

This is our second stay. We came to visit college with our son in the spring and then stayed here when it was time to drop him off (even though the college is not in downtown Boston we liked the room and staff so much we booked it again) The room was great (we booked River view) Hubby is Platinum so we got free breakfast and took it at Bar 10… Read more
This is our second stay. We came to visit college with our son in the spring and then stayed here when it was time to drop him off (even though the college is not in downtown Boston we liked the room and staff so much we booked it again) The room was great (we booked River view) Hubby is Platinum so we got free breakfast and took it at Bar 10 BECAUSE OF THE WONDERFUL WAITER JULES!!! He made our stay. The housekeeping was very good. The only issue (that has been pointed out by other reviewers) is that MANY rooms now serve as dorm rooms. We are more forgiving because we have a college age student and the kids, themselves don't bother me at all. BUT BUT BUT during an epidemic I suggest they designate one or two of the elevators just for the kids because it is CROWDED and unsafe, I think, in the elevators AND it takes a VERY long time to go up or down because of the multiple floors pushed and regular guests should not have to deal with in in my opinion. Huge difference from the day we arrived and the day the kids moved in. Also management should have given guests a heads up I think. But the hotel is good and JULES BENOIT the waiter in BAR 10 is a true asset to the hotel. Also met the head of HR, Jane, and she was LOVELY. Obviously she is doing a great job. Read less

I've been coming here for years. I miss the old grand lobby. The front desk and concierge relocated to a strange area. The front desk folks were helpful. Parking at the hotel was expensive. Still, a nice place to stay with great views and location.
