... complimentary breakfast we were treated to a tour of the city by Claude. Claude is an emigrated Israeli who conducts this tour everyday as well as being receptionist and making the breakfast for the hostel guests. We were treated to the sights of old Montreal, which included a disused castle/train station... the town hall and the former central Canadian stock exchange (now a theatre). Claude also provided a fascinating insight into Montreal's proud self identity, ...

Probably the most common and one of the cheaper forms of costal protection, Rip rap is when lots if boulders and large hard rock stones are piled up on the coastline to take the impact of the waves and the wave and energy between the rocks so that the wave is not strong enough to carry set much sediment and erode any soft rocks or soils. Though this is cheaper in the short term it ...
... is such a contrast; much busier and surrounded by sky scrapers with paths through patches of grass and tulips. We were able to visit the Afro - American museum on beacon hill. It was so interesting and is located in one of the first churches for black people which was then turned into one of the first black schools. We visited a few more places; the Quincy market and the state house but as I had lots of time to explore these places, the visits were fairly brief. Diny was ...

Having been successful in getting the tickets the next task was booking a hotel for the night. The Parker House we stayed in earlier in the week was great, but I didn't like the thought of coming out of a stadium with tens of thousands of others and having to get the subway across town at 11pm with two tired boys, so I had searched ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Copley House Boston
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.
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 ...
