This claims to be the second oldest hotel in Boston and although the basic structure of the hotel is clearly dated, the decor is very modern with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. It is a comparatively small hotel but that makes it very friendly and the staff were excellent - very helpful and friendly. We greatly enjoyed...

The Copley remains the grand dame of Boston. The downstairs common areas are opulent and filled with old world elegance. The service is impeccable and the staff is friendly and helpful. Our deluxe king room on the 5th floor was lovely. The bed and linens were luxurious. The bathroom was all gray and rose marble. Water was hot and consistent....

I stayed here for one night with my daughter whilst visiting local colleges. Overall the hotel is great. We checked in and were offered wine and snacks and shown to our room (611) The room was large and beautifully decorated but the noise from the road (and the air conditioning) will disturb light sleepers. We forgot our camera and the...

We came to Boston for our honeymoon and we stayed at the copley the first night and the room was clean and spacious. It is close to everything in Boston! We were able to walk to a lot of place and if we need to hop on the T there was a stop really close to the hotel

This was a great hotel particularly for the Boston Marathon. It is just the next block over from the finish line and close to Hynes Center so accessing the Expo was easy. The rooms are on the smaller side but the double queen was perfect for two people. The service was friendly, efficient and went above and beyond to assist...

The hotel is very conveniently located. It is near a supermarket and the famous Copley/ Prudential. Dining options are endless within walking distance. Shopping is made easy. The hotel is old. The lobby needs uplift. The room is very standard. The lifts are antique. Bar is very happening. I could hear the sound from my room, which I did not...

The entrance to the hotel is my issue,it is very dark and I do understand that lighting will probably not be added. It is the doorman and the valet that I think leave a bad impressions.

Upon arrival the Hotel Staff was super friendly and helpful. Our Queen room was upgraded to a King room by the front desk. What a nice surprise. The location was great for all of our planned activities. The room and bathroom were immaculate each day. We would highly recommend staying here and would definitely stay here again!

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.
