Enjoying a fantastic location on Copley Square with the magnificent Boston Public Library on one end and Trinity Church on the other, the Fairmont Copley Plaza is one of Boston's best addresses. As you enter the hotel from the square you are struck its palatial opulence reminiscent of the classic European Palace hotels. There are fine Italian mosaic floors, chandeliers, hand-woven carpets, oodles of marble, gleaming mirrors and ballrooms. Not surprising then that it tends to the residence of choice for visiting Presidents and dignitaries and there's a definite buzz about this hotel.
A recent revamp has added some subtle contemporary touches to the hotel which blend well with the classic features - particularly in evidence in the atmospheric OAK Long Bar & Kitchen where private members club meets elegant French brasserie. Pull up a handsome leather stool for a cocktail at the copper topped bar, or enjoy bistro classics such as platters of local cheeses, melting pizzas, roasted Maine scallops, great burgers and lobster mac & cheese: comfort food at its best.

When to go
Fall is Boston's most glorious season, though spring and summer are pleasant as well. These times bring in healthy-sized crowds due to favourable weather and special events. Weather usually remains warm throughout September, while cooler temperatures in October bring out the colorful foliage. Winter lasts too long for most people's tastes, stretching from December to April. During this period, visitors can expect temperatures below freezing and plenty of snow.
