Copley House Uncommonly Perfect
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Copley House for four days in August, and it was absolutely perfect. Our room was great--we had the studio, with a private bathroom, DSL, air conditioning, and a kitchenette stocked with dishes, appliances, and even filled ice trays in the freezer. It was in a very convenient location in Boston's South End, from finding our way there after exiting the Mass Pike to hopping on a T to walking down to Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe for french toast for breakfast.
If you need it, I'd ask them first about parking; we drove to Boston but secured a parking spot behind the building (very safe) for the duration of our stay. The value is practically unheard of--we were able to have small meals in the room, which saved us $$, and we were close to restaurants, a park, corner grocer's, great shopping on Newbury Street, and even a laundromat. If you're planning a trip to Boston for a few days, and especially if you're going with someone you'll sleep in the same bed with, I can't see how you'd get any better than Copley House.
Avoid this place - the prices float.
I had a written confirmation for 5 days rent of a studio apartment at The Copley House in Boston MA (239 W Newton St., Boston, MA) at $110 per night. I checked the website and saw that the advertised price is $80 to $90 per night.
I called The Copley House and said that I was happy with the fee but he should be aware that the internet rate was advertised at a lesser fee. I said that I was calling so that he might avoid trouble in the future. He said he could rent out the apartment at $120 per night and then cancelled my reservation!!!
About a half hour after this incident I rechecked the price and saw that he had adjusted the price!
Avoid this place, he does not stick to his price quote.
We stayed at the Copley House for a week in Mid April
and it was just wonderful.
We really felt like a part of the neighborhood staying in this cute apartment
and there was a great park for the kids less than a block away.
Plus the Hynes Convention Center is just 5 minutes walk.
This place is just wonderful. I stayed here while I was searching for an apartment. I never felt more at home. I loved the in room kitchens and
helpful staff. The neighborhood is so great that I actually moved here!
When we walked into the room there was an immediate odor which I reported to the management. They came and sprayed Lysol around the room. By 11p.m. we packed up our bags and walked to a different hotel. It turns out that the stove was leaking gas. Yes, they refunded our money and moved us to a better apartment for the rest of our stay, but I think that they should have check the room out for such things before renting it! I would rather pay more money than take such a chance again.
Great First Stop
I found this place to be great while I looked for an apartment in Boston. Clean and neat and the price is right.
Cheap Boston Hotel Alternative
Hotels are fairly expensive here and can put a damper on a vacation if you don't have the money. Copley House isn't as nice as the more ritzy hotels, but is more like your own apt. with a kitchenette, etc. If you're on a budget, less than 100/night check it out.
Extremely Poor Service
Beware. I had to call the BBB for this place because they overcharged me and wouldn't resolve my account despite multiple attempts.
run down - good if you are a college student. No change of towels or linens. mildew smell to the room. pass on this accomidation.
Cheap prices great places
I had my parents stay at the Copley House as my Boston apartment is too small for them to visit. The place was a furnished apartment and I believe they paid $85 per night which is much more affordable than local hotels. Their apartment was a 5 minute walk to the prudential center and the kitchenette was handy when they wanted to cook.I think the website is ...

... Chicago airport was certainly a different story - crowded, with lots of eating and shopping stuff. We had a quick lunch of hot sandwich (which was actually quite good). Then while waiting, I got a large bag of Chicago famous popcorn, half buttery, half caramel. You should see the line at that popcorn shop - at least 20 people for almost 2 hours straight. It was right across from our gate B8 and I could not resist the temptation when the line dwindled ...
