The hotel is located in a great place. Easy to move about Boston from the Fairmont. Hotel has lots of history. Staff on the Gold Club floor is first class. Stay on the gold club floor to have the best experience. Oak is a terrific bar inside the hotel!

Outstanding hotel!

A true classic hotel with a great location. Be sure to request a higher floor location, as guests on lower floors can be awakened by garbage trucks or delivery trucks in early morning. We recommend not eating dinner in Oak Bar, as service is spotty, menu is limited, and food is mediocre at best. (Breakfast is fine, however.) Service personnel in hotel are eager to please, and are well-trained.

Great location

By: Terry

The Fairmont Copley Plaza is a grand hotel with truly breathtaking public spaces, among the best I have seen. The restaurant/bar was a delightful spot for breakfast, lunch and evening cappuccinos and drinks. Service was excellent. The rooms were spacious and the bath very nicely updated but the guest rooms were furnished rather poorly and the carpeting in the hallways has definitely seen its better days. Unfortunately my room was a lengthy hike to the elevators that did not always operate as well as one would hope for.

Wonderful Experience

Our stay at Fairmont Copley Plaza was a wonderful way to see Boston with my family. The service was wonderful, hotel was beautiful, and restaurant breakfast was a great way to start our day. Central location was perfect for walking to many of the places that we visited. Gracie, the canine ambassador, was a sweet doggie angel and a welcome greeter every time we came downstairs or returned to hotel. We loved our stay there, and consider the hotel to be one of the highlights of our trip.
