Boston is a very walkable city. Fanieul Hall to Copley Square is very doable with lots to see along the way. Ancient cemetaries, Boston Common, Public Garden, State House, Shaw Memorial, Boston Public Libary, Trinity Church. You can detour into the Beacon Hill neighborhood and down to the Esplanade.

Staying in either area is convenient and gives you many choices of hotels.

Either area is fine.

In addition, there are a ton of walking tours of Boston. BostonbyFoot offers a variety of tours, and there are other self-guided walking tours such as:

Also the Freedom Trail, which is litterally laid out on the sidewalk, a self guided tour of the city all the way to Chelsea and Bunker Hill and The USS Constitution. The tour starts at the State House which is near Boston Garden.

Have a great time.

There used to be some good architectural tours of the Back Bay and Beacon Hill. They were walking tours. Another fun thing to do in Boston is to walk to Fenway for a game (if you can get tickets). I like the Lenox Hotel in the Back Bay (good pub there) and the Colonnade, on the edge of Back Bay and the South End - more a European-style hotel.
