Fairmont Copley Plaza Review

Last week while in Boston on the Marshalls & T.J. Maxx Blogger Holiday Event, I had the chance to stay at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

My shuttle ride from the airport took a bit longer than expected due to arriving right at rush hour. The couple of miles took nearly an hour because of all the traffic. However, it offered me a wonderful opportunity to view Boston and all of it’s incredible buildings.

When pulling up to the Fairmont Copley Plaza, I was amazed at the lovely majestic exterior of the hotel. With large rose-red awnings and an expansive entryway, complete with doorman and bellhops rushing to help everyone as quickly as they could, I knew I had arrived at a luxurious location.

Once through the front door, I walked down the long hall toward the check-in desk. I couldn’t keep my eyes off the beautiful crystal chandeliers lining the ceiling or the glass display cases full of both historical and modern novelties.

Approaching the registration area, I noticed a black Labador retriever in the lobby! I was a little surprised to see a dog at such a fancy hotel, so I went over to read the sign on the counter above her dog bed. I learned that this was Catie Copley the Fairmont Copley Plaza Canine Ambassador.

Catie was originally trained as a guide dog and she lounges in lobby while meeting and greeting guests. She’s also available for walks and jogs. While petting her, I could tell she was the perfect Canine Ambassador – she’s very friendly and at the same time incredibly laid back. She relaxed on her dog bed as nearly everyone who passed by her, stooped to give her a pat on the head and and then walked away with a smile.

After saying hi to Catie, check-in was a breeze. I found the front desk clerks to be warm, kind, and helpful. I was directed to the closest elevators in relation to my room, but before heading up I wandered around the lobby soaking in the beauty.

Once I did reach my room on the first floor, I found it to be exquisite. The room was extremely large and very clean. It had a gorgeous chandelier hanging from the ceiling and a flat screen tv.

I loved the dark tile as well as the shiny silver fixtures and good-sized porcelain sink. That night I found the beds to be very comfortable and even though there was a bit of street noise, I slept very well.

I only stayed one night and there were many amenities I didn’t have time to enjoy such as dining at The Oak Room, which was named Boston’s best steakhouse, the spa and health club, and of course taking Catie on a sightseeing walk.

However, The Fairmont Copley Plaza offered such an inviting, warm atmosphere coupled with the elegance and grandeur of the historic hotel it is, that I can’t wait to return and enjoy the hotel and everything it has to offer.

The accommodations were provided. No compensation was received. The opinions are my own.
