Designed in 1912 by the same architect as the Plaza Hotel in New York, the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, which has earned the CAA 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.

Beautiful Hotel. Great location. Room safe did not work. We had to bring our lap tops to front desk to store. We called for repair to room safe but no one ever came. Also, confusion with the billing at check out due to Travelzoo deal. Still not sure if it's accurate. Watching credit card statement.
