In general, when I think about hotels in prime city locations, especially historic hotels, I expect tiny rooms with limited amenities. So, when I stayed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, MA this summer, I was surprised to find specious rooms mixed with old city charm and modern elegance.
The Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston is located in Copley Square in the Back Bay section of Boston. This is a prime location – directly across from the Prudential Center/Copley Place Mall, and within walking distance to world famous Newbury Street, the Boston Common, and the Boston Public Garden.
As expected, the lobby is amazingly elegant and gorgeous. It’s reminiscent of a time gone by, but is well kept up, and fresh flowers make the space feel warm and welcoming. The elevators leading to the guest rooms are small as are the corridors leading to the rooms. However, the guest rooms are surprisingly modern and spacious. I was in a deluxe room, which is larger than the standard rooms, and I was extremely impressed with the size. It was easily double the size of a standard room in most large cities.
I was only there one night, but was impressed with the comfort of the bed, the water pressure in the shower, and the other room amenities.
