The Copley Square Hotel, Boston

While were were on holiday in July we made another visit to Boston but this time we stayed in a hotel I had never been to before. My husband had heard good things about The Copley Square Hotel from his work colleagues and so we decided to give it a try.

Located at 47 Huntington Avenue in the Copley Square area, the hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing or business in Boston. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the accommodation is of a really high standard. We booked one of their family suites, which consisted of two full bedrooms and a bathroom off a spacious hallway. The hotel offers free wireless internet throughout and both rooms had their own 42” LCD televisions. The decor is really lovely, just what you would expect of a boutique property and the beds were seriously comfortable.  The bathroom was small but perfectly formed.

The public areas of the hotel have a cool modern yet retro vibe that was sympathetic to the original building, itself far from a new addition to the Boston’s landscape.

We ate in Xhale, the hotel restaurant, the evening we arrived and at breakfast one morning. (The hotel very kindly gave us each one free breakfast voucher.)  The food was exceptional on both occasions. For dinner I particularly recommend their scrumptious Bruschetta made with Roma tomatoes, their Clam Chowder and their Fettucini Scampi. I had a very nice omelette at breakfast and my husband and son enjoyed The Bostonian which had two eggs cooked to order, breakfast potato and your choice of ham, bacon or sausage served with toast or English muffin.

The hotel offers a complimentary wine hour for guests from 5 to 6 pm each evening in the lobby, and if you fancy a drink later on, their cocktail lounge - cleverly named the ‘minibar’ - offers drinks and light snacks. We had nightcaps here on two evenings and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

So if you are planning a visit to Boston, do check out the Copley Square Hotel. There’s lots of information and special offers on their website, which you can visit by clicking here.
