The five-star Fairmont Copley Plaza is still considered the créme de la créme of Boston’s luxury hotels. Opened in 1912, it’s listed as one of the Historic Hotels of America®. With its dressed-up doormen, twinkling chandeliers, marble columns and detailed double P emblem dotted throughout the hotel, this limestone landmark makes for a special stay in the city. Remember to look at the Oval Room – it features a realistic sky-and-cloud mural, one of Boston’s most beautiful interiors.

Situated within the historic Back Bay neighbourhood, the hotel is ideally located for exploring the Freedom Trail, shopping on Newbury Street and wandering besides the Charles River Esplanade. The hotel is close to the Boston Public Library, Beacon Hill, and a two-minute walk from Copley subway – hop on for 10 minutes and jump off at Kenmore for the Red Sox baseball stadium, Fenway Park. For Harvard University, the subway is half an hour away. The hotel is a 25-minute subway ride from Boston Logan International Airport.

The Fairmont Copley Plaza offers over 380 guest rooms. Choose from one of five traditional room types, ranging from 220 square feet up to 350 square feet. Rooms feature a Keurig coffee maker® (Nespresso coffee maker® in Fairmont Gold rooms), luxury linen and plush bathrobes, whilst the bathrooms come with Le Labo Rose 31 toiletries to give your stay a touch more luxury. The rooms which overlook the hotel’s courtyard and lower front floor are prone to some road noise, as the location is city central.

Dining information

OAK Long Bar + Kitchen prides itself in using fresh, local ingredients to create a tantalising menu. Try the local oysters at happy hour (4pm-5pm) for just a dollar each. Or tuck into the pretzel bites with a boomsauce beer cheese sauce. The menus might be minimal, but there are different menus available throughout the day. If you’re a brunch fan with a sweet tooth, don’t miss the monkey bread or the house made donuts. If you fancy breakfast in bed or a pizza for a movie night in, there is 24-hour in-room dining service.
