The many faces of Boston, delivered with a smile

Your ticket to Boston’s sports, shopping, universities and history.

With Boston’s history, it could take many lifetimes to experience all there is to see, do and take-in while you’re in America’s first city. Fortunately, with the Copley Square Hotel’s convenient location right in the middle of the action, you and your group can explore enough for several lifetimes in just a few days.

Just about every minute of the day, there’s a sport being contested, an event being run and a group making history in the moment, with Fenway Park, TD Garden and Hynes Convention Center just steps away. Window shopping is tops, with Prudential Center, Newbury Street, South End/Tremont Street, and our namesake –Copley Square– right outside your window. If higher education is high on your list, Harvard, Boston University, Northeastern and MIT offer tours with a “degree” of sophistication. When you’re looking to step back in time, The Freedom Trail and The Museum of Fine Arts will take you there. And if you prefer to go by water like the original Bostonians, cruises and duck tours will float your boat. There's never a shortage of things to do in Boston.
