Review: Fairmont Boston Copley Plaza

The Fairmont Copley Plaza, just as the name says, is located directly off of Copley Plaza in Boston’s northern end. Very centrally located next to Boston’s Back Bay train station, it’s extraordinarily convenient for those taking the train into the city.

The hotel itself is about a half hour walk from sites around Faneuil Hall, and about an hour walk from Bunker Hill. Boston is a very walkable city, and there’s lots to see along the way, especially if you follow the famed Freedom Trail – a brick path taking you to most of the historic sites throughout the city.

The hotel is also located directly across from an extensive indoor shopping mall, as well as numerous coffee shops where you can grab breakfast.

Entering the hotel, you’ll notice Fairmont’s grandeur.

The bathroom was large, and included a walk-in shower, two sinks and the toilet. For the size of the room, I found the bathroom to be well-sized.
