Historical Traveler Reviews Boston Marriott Copley Place
I recently spent 2 nights at the Marriott Copley Place. I reserved the hotel through Priceline so I had no choice of hotels, it was the usual crapshoot. I was fortunate to end up at this hotel. The room was your typical hotel room, very nicely appointed and immaculate. The most striking thing about this hotel was the staff. From the front desk staff to the concierge to the maid passing me in the hallway - everyone was genuinely friendly! The location was also excellent, near the T, right next to a mall, lots of tourist/sightseeing options nearby.
I would definitely stay here again!
Wonderful time at the Marriott Copley Place
My teenage daughters and I spent the first week of June at the Marriott Copley Place. What a perfect location--close to subway stops, walking distance to Newbury Street, the back bay neighborhoods and the public garden. I am not a "rewards" customer with Marriott but they gave us a large, beautiful room with the loveliest view of the river on the 32nd floor. The hotel is attached by bridges to three shopping malls, one with a movie theatre. Talk about teenage heaven and many choices for meals. The service and the staff were perfect, very accomodating. I called the concierge several times and was given very good advice very cheerfully. I also asked the house keeping staff to come late in the day so my daughter could sleep--no problem. The rooms are so well soundproofed that we heard nothing through the walls and nearly nothing throught the door. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
Marriott Copley-give it a try!
Great Hotel! We stayed Easter weekend and took in a Red Sox game (about a 25 min. walk to Fenway Park). The only problem is that the "noiseless" refrigerator didn't work, which I reported. I had discovered that around 1000PM, and they were willing to swap units. I waved them off as we were planning on heading out. The staff was very friendly and rate 5 stars! The registration man assigned us a "room with a river view" on the 21st floor. If you looked out to the right you could actually see the Atlantic Ocean in the distance. Always treat check-in staff with courtesy, they most likely will return the favor.
They get more than enough of the "attitude crowd" during the workday.
We got a great night's sleep on the very comfortable bed. There are a number of restaurants, pubs, and all the shopping you can stand close at hand in a good neighborhood.We'll be back!
Our weekend away
It was very nice, a great spot for our weekend away from home. we were very happy with our stay. service and the quick walk without going outside to the malls.
Attractive hotel in great location
The Marriot Boston is a nice hotel in a super location. Being centered in Copley, you can access some of Boston's best attractions and shopping without stepping outside! The Marriot is directly connected to both the Copley Place Mall and Prudential Center Mall. Copley Place offers upscale shopping, various dining options, and a movie theater; Prudential Center also offers an array of stores, a food court, multiple restaurants (from fast food to fine dining), the Prudential Observatory, and functional stops such as the Post Office, banks, and Shaws Supermarket. The lobby in the Marriot Boston is one of its finest features. Several floors, all open for viewing above and below, are connected by escalators, thus avoiding a wait to access main floors.
Glass chandaleirs and opulent lighting abound in this hotel. The hotel boasts a number of restaurants, and a bar with regular entertainment and music. The lobby is spacious and there is a lot of seating. There is a pool and health club, and room service is available. All of the rooms have nice views, and I recommend asking for a corner room on a high floor, for the best views and most space. Parking is expensive and located in the Copley Mall's parking garage. I havent stayed in this hotel for a couple of years now, but for the most part, enjoyed my visits. However, I did have a few complaints. I've always stayed there during the winter when the heat was on, and in many rooms and hospitality suites, noticed a strange, musty odor when the blower turned on. I am not aware of whether this has been resolved or not. The rooms were a bit on the small side, and were kind of stuffy. The bathrooms were somewhat run-down, though not falling apart, I expected a bit more for my money. The service was not terrific, nor was it terrible. The staff often seemed overwhelmed at busy times, and were not always able to answer my questions or requests. One of the few times I decided to try valet parking, I ended up having to wait over 20 minutes for my vehicle despite calling ahead. No pets are allowed, which presents an issue for me while travelling. The elevators are tough - long waits are common, and "getting lucky" (waiting less than 7-10 min at busy times for that magical "ding" on your floor) has been a joke between the guests each time I've stayed there. The verdict?
It's a nice hotel business travelers especially might find fufills their needs, or those who mainly want prime location and spend minimal time in their rooms would enjoy it- but there are others I like better for my own business or recreational purposes. It's very pretty in the common areas, but this can be enjoyed by simply walking through on the way to the malls, or dining at the restaurants or bar.
Great winter retreat
we stay at the marriott copley place every winter for a holiday retreat with my husband's siblings. the hotel has never let us down; always clean, the staff is excellent, the pool is nice. it's fun to be able to come down from the country and find so much to do without having to go outside. the holiday decorations are beautiful and the shopping never-ending the views beautiful. this is a perfect place to go if you need to get away and enjoy time in the city.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Close to shopping, actually has a closed walkway to the Prudential Center. Nice lounge, LOBSTER QUESADILLA'S ! Yum! Excellent wine list. Nice sports bar on main level.
Great rooms, clean and plenty of space.
A great stay
Stayed there in March for short stopover. Hotel was well above average.
Room was good. Good size and very clean. Hotel itself is in great location and has plently of great facilities. Staff were very helpful, not that friendly but we're used to that coming from the UK!! Being in Copley place direct access to stores which was great. Good location for all the sites although best to use the tour bus as it stops everywhere including directly outside the hotel!!
Room service was good. No delays and got want we ordered!. Concierge was very knowledgable and helpful. Recommend you use them for ideas on where to go. Would definately go there again.
Value for money
this is the perfect vacation hotel. Girls love it as it is ajoined to the great shopping malls of Boston and a 3 minute walk to Newbury st.
Guys will love champions sports bar, and gym with full pool. its within 30 minutes walking to all the best of boston. rooms are spacious and so compfortable, with the staff a pleasure to talk to. movie house 2 minutes indoor walk from hotel and 2 1/2 minutes to the best seafood restaraunt in Boston Legal seafood. This place is a winner with good parking, great entertainment and has the best Chowder i've ever tasted.

... deg F. A walk on Mt Greylock. We chose the wrong day for the Williams college gallery in Williamstown as it closed on Wednesdays, though we did have a look around and saw the eye sculptures on the lawns. Williams College is leafy and grand though nearby towns are mill towns with some way to go in terms of post industrialisation revitalisation. Next we drove up Mt Greylock. Fortunate this as it closes at the weekend for the winter. This was magnificent. The trees were resplendent on ...
... if your bike is in a cardboard box. Lufthansa is a decent airline. Their service is very good and the food is nothing to complain about. I just hate being packed in like a sardine. I can never sleep on these long flights. Of course it didn’t help that I chose to watch “Catching Fire”, the second of the Hunger Games movies. It seemed like Will was getting a bit of shut-eye. Landing in Munich everything was easy and uneventful. By the time we had walked through ...
After packing this morning we headed out for breakfast and to enjoy the sun. We went over to Faneuil Hall and Quincy market place where we chose a simple light breakfast and coffee and sat outside in the sun to enjoy. We also had a final look around the market and shops. On the way back to the hotel we bought our T tickets to catch the train to the airport. After checking out, ...

The trail then took me along the first public school where a huge bronze statue of Benjamin Franklin rises outside the Old City Hall. The next one on the list is the Old Corner Bookstore, a cute little brick building which was a literary and ...
Sept 23rd Monday- Up early for us and by 1:45 were on our way to the White Mts in New Hampshire for a couple of days. First stop was at Dunkin Donuts for a couple of muffins for breakfast and then on our way. Next a stop for fuel and off- We did the Kancamangus Hwy before going to the motel-The Notch in Carroll NH. Settled into unit #1 and later to the Fabyens for dinner. We had some of the best ribs I have ever had-lots of meat and ...
