My husband and I attended a conference at the fairmont Copley Place and stayed overnight. The service was amazing and the room is beautiful. The hotel has maintained several of the original architecture. It is beautiful. The check in was easy.

Hotel's Favourite
I was so pleased with my stay at the Fairrmont. Their Covid protocol was professional and made me feel Very comfortable. The room was sanitized and came complete with a little kit equipped with masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. The breakfast was the best I ever had, especially the potatoes! I recommend this hotel for my overall experience was very pleasant!

It is the staff of the Copley Plaza that makes every stay special. From the front desk to housekeeping and the Oak Bar, everyone works hard to please every guest. The hotel itself, a historic masterpiece, is kept up to the highest standards. My highest recommendation.

Stayed here on a New England trip and had a great time! We booked this place for a great price but I would gladly pay more to stay here again. The interior was beautiful and the rooms were very nice. I loved the location as well as the service! We had breakfast downstairs and it was the best oatmeal I've ever had. My husband got the beans and something meal and I was thoroughly surprised at how good it was. They also have a dog which makes everything better. Lastly, I even considered staying here for my 3 month work trip coming up! I'm actually making a second trip this weekend. :)

We have always been big Fairmont fans as we stay every year when we visit the Pops at Christmas. This last visit revealed a more run down look which I was surprised to see. We stayed in a signature King room on the second floor which we are usually on an upper floor in a next level room option. Maybe that was the difference. Although there is no excuse for the paint job in the bathroom. The paint was applied and obviously ran down the bottom molding and dried. Not a good look. Super frustrating that we had to use the parking garage which is located up the street and had to walk back and still were required to pay $40.00 a night. the parking app they have you use to enter and exit the garage is not user friendly. I can't imagine the older generation first having to walk all the way back to the hotel and have to figure out the app. The restaurant service was really slow, so much so my husband had to approach the bar tender because our server could not be found. There were very few entrées to choose from. We may stay at the Liberty Hotel upon our next visit, sorry Fairmont.
