At A Glance


Built at the turn of the century. Always turning heads.

Known for its facade and its faces.

Most visitors come to Boston to experience the history of America’s first city. When you stay at Copley Square Hotel, you’re actually living it.

From the moment it opened in 1891 as the first hotel to grace Boston’s Back Bay, it has served as the face of Boston, and the home-away-from-home of its most famous residents, as well as visiting dignitaries, politicians, businessmen and athletes.

The seven-story Grand Dame’s architectural mix of Italian Renaissance and Beaux Arts styles has served to attract, without a doubt, but the stories behind the walls have endured, and been embellished, just like the artful exterior and grand interior have renovated new interest as they, too have been refinished and refined, throughout the generations.

Yet, all the while, as the city landscape has changed around her, she and her passionate personnel have maintained her stately elegance and playful panache, proof positive that authenticity and character are timeless.
