I recently stayed here for 5 nights while attending a course in Boston. This was the hotel chosen by the course organizers but I had no trouble agreeing to stay here, knowing Fairmont's reputation as a high end hotel with impeccable service. The hotel itself is elegant and full of old world charm but has all the modern amenities you...

I recently stayed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for two nights. It was a Fairmont Gold level room, so quite roomy. The club amenities are fantastic and the service very good - they made me a special elevator key so I could hang out for a bit in the lounge after checking out! (And I did not have to ask...

I travel weekly for business so I come in contact with many people in the hospitality industry The doormen at the Fairmont are the most considerate and hard working guys that I have encountered in many years. They hustled to help with bags, and getting cabs, and storing bags across the huge lobby at all hours during my recent stay....

Stayed here 4 nights on business. I checked in tired and a little grouchy having not been able to get into my group's block of rooms. Tin at the front desk handled my concerns expertly, taking care of what he could then and following up with me the next day for the rest. The hotel is quite grand and the...

We had a wonderful overnight at the Fairmont Tuesday night. Our dog LOVES to stay too. She especially likes to see Carley!! Upgrading to the Gold level is well worth it. The staff is wonderful!!! Afternoon cocktails and yummy snacks are served in the beautiful gold level lounge. A wonderful breakfast is also served every morning.

We held our daughter's wedding reception at this glorious and historical hotel, and booked a block of rooms for ourselves and our guests. From top to bottom, this hotel is a class act. Our suite was elegant, and fashionably decorated, and the staff was so accommodating it was ridiculous. The reception was in the Grand Ballroom, which is undoubtedly one...

We just came back from a most wonderful stay at the Fairmont Copley. The Fairmont is a beautiful hotel in a perfect location.

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.
