Fairmont Copley Plaza
This stately landmark is the grand dame of Boston hotels. While the exterior is commanding, the interior is spectacular, complete with glittering chandeliers, gilded mirrors and columns of Italian marble. Rooms and suites are modern-classic in style with elegant furnishings, curated artworks and marble bathrooms. For the most discerning guests, Fairmont Gold rooms offer dedicated staff plus a private lounge serving complimentary breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres. The OAK Long Bar + Kitchen is one of Boston’s best restaurants, and though former guests include Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the star of the show now is undoubtedly Cori Copley, the canine ambassador who sleeps in the grand lobby.
