Critic Reviews


Just as palatial as it was when it first opened in 1912, the storied 383-room Fairmont Copley Plaza remains as iconic to Boston as the Plaza is to New York City – and no less grand, as they share the same architect.



Decadent and romantic, the Fairmont Copley Plaza is overflowing with articular design and art. Designed with Italian marble, exquisite coffered ceilings, and twinkling crystal chandeliers, you may notice pieces of art by Miro and Chagall hanging on the lobby walls, as well as photos from the hotel's vast history.
