Shopping is at its best near the Mandarin Oriental, Boston. For the luxury shopper, head one block to Newbury Street where you’ll find everything from Valentino and Cole Haan to unique designer boutiques. The Prudential Center mall has all the favorites, like Sephora and White House Black Market. The mall at Copley Place — which is accessible via the Prudential Center — also features retailers ranging from Stuart Weitzman and Tiffany & Co. to Victoria’s Secret and Lucky. Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nieman Marcus are also near the hotel if you need an upscale department store fix. Our tip for avoiding shopper’s fatigue: Grab a few business cards from Mandarin Oriental, Boston’s front desk before you head out. Once you buy, leave the business card with the store and ask to have your purchases dropped off at the Mandarin Oriental or call the hotel for pickup. That way, you won’t be weighed down with bags as you shop till you drop.
