When it comes to iconic American hotels, there aren’t many spots that can offer the prestige and luxury of Boston’s Fairmont Copley Plaza.
Built in 1912 and located in the Back Bay area at Copley Square — just steps from Beacon Hill, the Boston Public Library and more — stepping into the grand, gilded lobby of the Fairmont Copley Plaza is like stepping back in time. The stunning Louis XVI details — high ceilings and ornate décor — are regal, bringing to mind the hotel’s sister accommodation, New York’s famous Plaza Hotel. It’s one of the reasons Fairmont Copley Plaza has been used as a setting for films such as American Hustle, Live By Night, Bride Wars and more.
The Fairmont’s 383 quiet, intimate guest rooms and suites bring a cozy elegance with a modern look and feel that manages to retain the timeless spirit of this historic building. Modern amenities and friendly, knowledgeable, staff, meanwhile, and just what savvy travelers have come to expect from Fairmont properties.
Fairmont Copley Plaza also just happens to feature one of the greatest spaces in town for a craft cocktail as well as modern American cuisine. Oak Long Bar + Kitchen features, as its name suggests, a stunning bartop and plenty of cozy seating, and has long been a destination for locals and visitors looking for that incomparable culinary and beverage experience. Farm-to-table ingredients are at the heart of Oak’s sharing and small-plates program, with an emphasis on sourcing local ingredients from area suppliers. They also happen to do craft beer, well-chosen wines and seasonal cocktails cocktails as well as anyone in town.
The open-concept rooftop health club at Fairmont Copley Plaza is also just the thing to keep you refreshed and energized while exploring Boston. Open 24 hours, the 3,000 square-foot facility features floor-to-ceiling windows, a wide range of TechnoGym equipment, fitness attendants and space to kick back and soak up the sun.
