Designed in 1912 by the same architect as the Plaza Hotel in New York, the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, which earned the AAA 4-Diamond Award for over 20 years, is the reigning grande dame of Boston’s Back Bay. Located one block from Newbury Street, the historic landmark blends Old World opulence with modern amenities. In the lobby, guests are greeted by Carly Copley, the hotel’s resident black Labrador. 

Sparkling chandeliers illuminate gilded decor, while upstairs rooms and suites have a subdued, modern feel. Oak Long Bar + Kitchen serves Boston’s most inventive martinis on an 83-foot copper-topped bar. Sweeping views of the Back Bay can be enjoyed from the hotel’s 3,000-square-foot rooftop health club and sun deck.

We had lunch at the Oak Room and I have to say it was extremely disappointing. My salad was so ordinary with a couple of cherry tomatoes, no bread offered, and waited 30 mins on a Tues afternoon to even get it. My advice...skip this place and go elsewhere for lunch. Quite disappointing.
