The Westin Copley Place
Travel Blogs from Boston
This morning we had a tour of historical Boston by a guy dressed in costume. Went to the cemetery, talked about Paul Revere and his ride and looked at a bunch of old buildings. When we got back to the hotel we contacted Betty's grandson Abraham and made arrangements to meet.
Abraham was playing at a Jazz Festival and so we had a quick …
Today was almost the last day in Canada. Have just one more on the day we fly out.
It was a long day. Bags picked up from inside the room at 6.30am and on the road by 7.30am. Made it to the border by 9am and then took about an hour for us all to be processed. It was only a passport thing and no bags were checked.
Stopped at a park …
One area we hadn’t visited in Boston was the Harvard University Campus. We took the subway to Harvard Square and walked the short distance to the gates of Harvard. Today heralded the arrival of all the freshman (1st year) students on campus. This is just like Orientation week on Australian university campuses. The campus was busy with …
Sometimes when you think things couldn't get any worse…they do. Today was my second day of work. As I mentioned in a previous post, I flew from San Diego directly to Boston. And because our stuff is being shipped out later, I had to pack enough clothes and suites to last me 3 weeks. I had enough luggage to sustain a family of four, complete …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Copley Place Boston
CLean, clean, clean
This hotel was great The rooms were CLEAN! It is the first hotel I have stayed in that I did not have an allergy attack! The beds were great, the staff friendly and informative. I would stay here any day!
Try another hotel
Just back from New Year's at the Westin Copley. Was vastly overpriced at $199 a nite. The room was "well used" verging on dingy, including the stains on the rugs. The "heavenly bed" was missing a layer of heaven. And the bedspread was stiff enough to serve dinner on. The Bathroom was still in the 80's with no room to turn and the lighting was a shade of purple. The location was great. But there are a minimum of six hotels in the area that would be on the same level at a lesser price. Quite a comedown from my previous weeks stay at the Westin Times Square. NOTE: Not all Westins are at the same level.
It is a great place! Book it! It is in an excellent location-Back Bay.
Great, if you like showering in sewage.
We had a terrible stay at what are usually our perferred hotels--the Westin. Vastly overpriced and overrated, we ended up taking showers in sewage on the morning we left, courtesy a broken waterline. The hotel did absolutely nothing to compensate or apologize for the fiasco--they were in fact rude and unapologetic. We will never stay at this hotel again.
Just back from a weekend stay at the Westin Copley! Great service and fantastic location. We had a junior suite on the 24th Floor which is basically one big room with 2 oversized double beds and a pullout sofa.
Overall very nice hotel, GREAT location. It was perfect for a weekend get away. Although, I have stayed at other Westin's before and this one was not as nice or as plush..
My wife and I just returned from a weekend at The Westin Copley Place and had a terrific experience. The ample-sized, well-appointed 35th floor room with with an amazing view of the river and comfy bed were great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The property's location can't be beat. It is connected to the upscale mall and right outside the door is the "T" subway stop to easily connect you with the rest of the city (otherwise there were always cabs waiting outside)- Great Newbury St. shopping and the beautiful Boston Common Park are a short walk away. The Westin also houses the Palm Steakhouse (say what you want about it being a chain, it is still great) a good sushi place, and various other spots. For convenience, comfort, and quality, you will be hard-pressed to find anything better for the $$. Make it a point to stay here- you will not be dissapointed.
The Westin Copley Place is located in one of the ritziest neighborhoods of Boston, next to the Copley Place Shopping Galleries.The hotel lobby is inviting, with leather seats arranged around a fire place. The hotel room is spacious and clean, decorated with a modern sensibility. It has mahogany furniture, ultra comfortable heavenly bed, comfortable sofa, and free internet access in the hotel room. Bathroom features huge mirros and double shower head. Request a room with rive view on higher floor and you will be impressed with the unobstructed view of Charles River and beyond.The hotel also has a well equipped gym and a small indoor swimming pool. There are a hopping bar 10, a seafood restaurant, and a good hair salon and spa right downstairs.You will also be met with friendly services.
Went to the Westin Copley Place for a Sat/Sun night getaway in December 2002. Great location, very clean, bathroom had two shower heads, easy access to/from the Mass Pike, couldn't beat the rate $109/night +tax. Don't forget $32/day for parking. Attentive staff immediately responded to thermostat problem in room. Great service from valet, bell staff, front desk and housekeeping. Perfect location for shopping at Copley Place and Newbury Street. Nice restaurants all within walking distance. Highly recommend the Westin.
A "W" in disguise
Westin Copley Place's recent and much-needed $30MM facelift has the contemporary flair and urban sophistication of its sister "W" hotels, right down to the cool lobby bar ("Bar 10") and welcoming lobby sofas and fireplace. Service is friendly and efficient, rooms are nicely done up and bathroom vanity space is ample. The sleekest hotel in Boston....until they get their own "W".
