Boston's grand dame hotel
383 Rooms / 17 Suites
Fairmont Copley Plaza, often referred to as Boston’s grand dame hotel, sits in the heart of the city in Copley Square, just steps from some of the area's best shopping, restaurants and nightlife. It is easily recognizable by its red awnings and sprawling red carpet at the front doors.
Inside those doors, you'll find everyone from Boston locals to film crews and international guests roaming the lobby. Thanks to the hotel's ornate architecture and design, Fairmont Copley Plaza is consistently seen in movies, remains a popular power-lunch spot and is a local favorite among Bostonians wanting a little luxury at the end of the day. The hotel celebrated its centennial in 2012, and to honor 100 years, it gave itself a $20 million renovation, which included refreshed guest rooms and a more modern lobby and dining experience. But it still retained much of its centuries-old charm. The famed OAK Bar is no longer, but the OAK Long Bar + Kitchen is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and boasts one of the city's most talked-about night scenes. Don't miss the new fitness center and spa area, located on the luxury hotel's top floor. The gym features floor-to-ceiling windows offering sprawling views of Boston's financial district and Copley Square.
