Historical Traveler Reviews Copley House Boston
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 ...

... shelter and had to reevaluate our plans for the day. It was just our luck, we had plan to do the trail before the rains came, but as we say plans are made to be changed. The rain didn't look like stopping so we decided to some of the indoor activities and museums. We decided to go to the University of Harvard, and see the famous university and grounds. The subway we needed to get was the subway we were hiding in from the rain, so we hopped on a train. We got off to ...

After lunch we moved on and found our way back to the car. We had to get on our way, so headed back to the apartment, grabbed our stuff, and hit the road bound for Maine and the city of Portland! ...

... this time, check in was a breeze so we had time to kill before the flight left. The flight to Buffalo was just over an hour then we had to find transport for the drive to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada where we were staying. I had looked at this online before leaving home and some operators were charging $300 for a return trip so we had decided to wait until we got here. Outside the airport we caught a taxi who was heading to ...
