"Location! (Luke's Lobster House is across the street. That's rough.) Booked on Travelzoon for such a low price we stayed 2 nights for the piece of 1. Lovely bar off the lobby. Historic AND modern. Valets were very friendly and knew the area well."

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The second-oldest continuously running hotel in America, the AAA 4-Diamond Copley Square Hotel is ideally situated in Boston's Back Bay and designed with modish light fixtures and furnishings, reminiscent of the trendy shops and restaurants nearby.

Well designed with contemporary touches and notably comfortable beds, the guestrooms and baths may be compact but are so "clean and streamlined that you just might overlook the fact that" (Fodor's). With a convenient Back Bay location, the hotel is ideal for dropping off your bags and head out sightseeing, or lingering just a bit to use the free Wi-Fi to plan outings. Daily complimentary perks include bottled water, granola bars and jogging maps for early risers and an evening "Wine Down" reception.

Once frequented by legends such as Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, the hotel's former speakeasy has reopened as the popular nightclub Storyville. The music doesn't overwhelm the rest of the hotel, but can be a scene out front at night. There's also a cocktail bar and a full restaurant with a sporting theme.

The hotel is four blocks from the shopping of Newbury Street and a 10-minute walk to Boston Common and the Freedom Trail. The Boston T orange and green lines are just a five-minute walk from the hotel.

From the press:
  • “The old-meets-new vibe is fun, and the neighborhood couldn't be livelier” -- Fodor's
  • “It’s hard to argue with the hotel’s prime location” --

Sits in a great location to easily walk around back Bay Area or grab a taxi/ uber to another part of the city.

The room itself was great...especially with free upgrade to a king room. The neighborhood was bars and restaurants a couple blocks away. Great proximity to Downtown Boston.
Other Comments
Only complaint is that there's a night club (which I knew about) beneath the hotel. We could hear the pumping bass from the music in our room on the 2nd floor.

We enjoyed the part of the city the hotel is in. It is close to shopping, great restaurants, and the T.
Other Comments
The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has a very hip and modern feel to it, even though it is a very old building. Our room was very small, but that did not bother us. There is so much to do and see in Boston! We spent very little time in the room!

VERY slow elevators; ended up using stairs (not a big deal). Good breakfast in hotel restaurant both days. Very pleasant and helpful staff; moved immediately to different room after HVAC developed strange odor. Quick response from housekeeping to request for additional pillows. Second room had strange arrangement in bathroom (odd shaped room) with extremely narrow space for toilet (probably not to Code).
