Boston

A renovated icon in downtown Boston, directly on Copley Square and steps from the Freedom Trail

It's hard to get more central than Fairmont Copley Plaza. As the name suggests, this gorgeous property is located right on its city’s arguably most famous square, as well as kitty-corner from legendary square-front institutions, like Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library. Boston Common, the Boston Public Garden and the Charles River Esplanade are within walking distance, if you’d like some fresh air, and Newbury Street two blocks over, if you came for the shopping. To visit any other attractions, look no further than the T stops of the surrounding Back Bay neighborhood.

Of course, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner is a bit of an institution itself. Far more than just another Boston base, it boasts a history that includes more than a handful of Harvard-Yale dances and visits from Sinatra, Pavarotti, Burton and Taylor. It’s as celeb-worthy now as it was in those days, following its $20-million centennial restoration; you’ll find a brand-new, 3000-square-foot health club; an American brasserie; and 24-hour room service. Receive a warm greeting from the black-lab "canine ambassador," before retreating to your own abode, with its black-and-white sketches of urban life, and make this Beantown beauty your home away from home.
