... not quite reach these dizzy heights. Instead, after stumbling up what felt like a million steps, we found the Mount Royal Chateau. Here we were able to see the beautiful Montreal we had been promised with a stunning view of the city for Abbie to repeatedly capture on her camera. With the day coming to an end and a night bus beckoning we made our way back to the hostel. Whilst the night bus seemed like a good idea at first, with travel and accommodation catered for in ...

... heading up to Fenway park and onto Yawkee Way. What a party atmosphere, it was crowded but very good natured and lots of families. We got to our seats in the grandstand between the batter and first base, fantastic view, only marred by a steel pillar, but easily seen round. Fenway park is the oldest stadium in the USA and one of the most iconic. It feels very compact, but managed to pack in a capacity crowd of just over 38,000 on Friday night. It ...
... a little out of place in our shorts and t-shirts in the middle of all the well dressed gentlemen we were dining with! Oh well, we had our British charm going for us...!
When we were done eating, we continued our little walk around the neighbourhood, before heading back to the hostel for the evening. We've only got two days in the Boston area and the second one we're spending in Salem, so tomorrow is going to be jam-packed!
I enjoy running, and I particularly enjoy racing. When I travel anywhere I use my runs to explore. Wherever possible I enter a local race.
So,on our recent house exchange to Boston I entered a four mile racealong the beach at Nantasket, part of a peninsula to the south of Boston harbour. An internet search indicated a journey distance of 25 miles and an estimated time of one hour.The race was due to begin at 6.00 pm but we left at 3.00 to have ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCourtyard By Marriott Boston Copley Square
I chose the Marriot Courtyard Copley Square (aka 88 Exeter) over several other more modern and equally convenient hotels because it was in an older, historic building and seemed to emit the vibe more of a boutique hotel rather than the several ones attached to the enormous inside mall infrastructure in the area. It had a small hotel feel, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were exactly what you would expect from a Marriot Courtyard.

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Boston Copley Square
After a terrible experience at the hostel we were booked with (see review of Beantown Hostel) we rang around every hotel in Boston trying to find another place to stay. Marriott was one of the only places with a spare room (thanks to the Boston Red Sox playing against New York). Desperate we booked despite the fact that we would have normally never paid so much for a hotel room.
One of the best!!!!
I stayed at this beautiful hotel with my wife for our 25th anniversary. We had the most wonderful stay at the Courtyard by Marriott at Copley Square. We had everything arranged by this beautiful young girl named Julyana. She called us ahead of time and I left everything on her hands. She did a great job. My wife was very impressed. The front desk staff couldn't be more friendlier. Young man at the front desk asked us everyday how our day was. I want to congratulate management at this hotel for hiring such an amazing staff. GREAT JOB!
The breakfast was lovely and very New England.I would love to stay at this hotel again. It is will be a great pleasure.
Chose this hotel due to location and reviews on Tripadvisor, and booked two king rooms using Marriott reward points for two nights each. A free, full service breakfast was included. Staff are young, friendly and professional, with the exception of an annoyingly loud, chirpy and fake friendly woman in the breakfast room who was easily annoyed and annoying.
Just returned from Boston after attending a conference. Although the conference was headquartered at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, (and I stayed there before for the same conference) I decided to stay at the Courtyard based on Tripadvisor reviews. What a great choice! Just a block from Copley Square, the T, Newbury Street, and the Charles River, it's a great "home base" for exploring Boston. The hotel occupies the renovated 88 Exeter, a turn of the century hotel. The facility retains the charm of this older structure but is thoroughly updated inside. The rooms are just big enough with a great bed, large desk/work area, minifridge and coffee maker. Thursday through Monday there are special events in the late afternoon, we had tea on Saturday and Sunday and a chocolate tasting on Monday. The best part of the experience was the overall environment created by the staff. They were pleasant, engaging and helpful, from the housekeepers to the front desk staff and especially the "Destination Experience Specialist." I don't know how Marriott trains their people but it works. Sorry Fairmont Copley Plaza, you've lost a customer for good.
Absolutely amazing staff! All young and very professional. Genuine smiles, hospitality you're used to in the South, not a city like Boston. You can't walk through the lobby without receiving a warm greeting and offer of assistance. Everyone remembers your name, even if you haven't seen them in a few days. For a busy city hotel I have no idea how they do it.
This hotel is a great find in Boston. The location in the Back Bay area is perfect - it is close to everything including shopping across the street (both food and major mall).
The room we had was very large with two queen size beds (hard to find in Boston). It was well decorated and very quiet. The hotel staff was great, the breakfast in the morning was great. The whole experience was wonderful. I would highly recommend it and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Very reasonably priced as well.
Boston makes for a great visit!
Have traveled to Boston twice within the past year and loved both trips. Boston is a marvelous place, although my major complaint is that the prices are fairly overwhelming. It's one thing to visit, it would be another thing to live there for any amount of time. Stayed at the Marriott Courtyard Copley Square. A very nice place to stay. Everyone was helpful and pleasant. The room and facilities were quite above average. All in all we had a great time.
I recently went to Boston with 2 girlfriends from college and stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Copley Square in Boston and we had a wonderful experience. The staff, from the minute we walked into the hotel was very polite, professional and helpful, considering we knew nothing about the city. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting offered on Thursday evenings, and the convenience to everything (especially shopping) was great! The hotel is about a 1/2 hour walk to Fanuel Hall, but to get there, you walk through the Boston Commons, and eventually wind up on the Freedom Trail (which brings you right to Fanuel Hall and Quincy Market). The rooms at the hotel are large, and very clean, and very quiet, and the beds are very comfortable, and the room was beautifully decorated. The only issues that we had were that the room was a bit hot at night, even though we turned down the thermostat to 60, and the parking was not really convenient (and a bit pricey at $38 for 24 hours down the street.) However, once we parked, we didnt use the car again for the entire 3 days. i highy recommend this hotel.
Great Hotel in Boston!
This is a newly constructed hotel with excellent rooms and a great location. The staff is very friendly and the rooms have to be seen to be believed. This is one of the best Courtyard properties. Lighting and decor are incredible. Parking can be a bit of a bother, but that's really the only negative. You can often find great rates on this hotel, but it can also be very expensive. It's my choice when traveling to boston
