Welcome to Fairmont Copley Plaza, the Grand Dame of Boston

Splendor and Old-World opulence mingle at our 1912 Boston landmark with a prominent history worthy of its location: the birthplace of the American Revolution. Stately and storied with a remarkable legacy, Boston’s 110-year-old grande dame is just as tasteful and current as ever.

The site of myriad presidential dinners and globe-changing events, our four-diamond hotel’s one-of-a-kind rooms and extravagant celebration venues have served as the backdrop of special memories for a century and counting. Set your milestone, meeting or grand-scale gala amid the gilded ceilings, crystal chandeliers and marble pillars.

The best of Boston is just outside the door: from world-class museums, exclusive boutiques and historic sites to sporting events, landscaped gardens and leisurely strolls along the river. We are centrally located in the mansion-lined Back Bay neighborhood and city’s top address for life’s big moments. Expect impeccable service, yes, but always personal, genuine and uniquely Boston. Don’t be surprised if the same bellman who greeted your parents for their nuptials is still here — and calls you by name. Be our guest!

The Best of Boston

Explore the city

Old and new converge in central Boston’s well-heeled Back Bay neighborhood, a jewel of tree-shaded streets, window flower boxes and quiet cobblestone walkways. Meander past picturesque old lamps and statues, handsome brick manors and historic landmarks, such as Trinity Church and the famed public library. Delightfully walkable in a Parisian way, this is a top Boston district, long home to the city’s elite, filled with boutique-lined avenues, trendy bars and bustling sidewalk cafés, anchored by Newbury Street and Commonwealth Avenue.

Consider us your personal escort to our great city. Many of us were born and raised here, and the hotel has been an active member of the Back Bay community for more than a century.
