Fodor's Expert Review Boston Marriott Copley Place

110 Huntington Ave., Boston, Massachusetts 02116, USA See on Map

It's busy-busy, with throngs of tourists and their offspring, but you can't beat the location of this 38-story mega-hotel. It may be just another Marriott, but it's a nice one, thanks to a $22-million renovation. The mammoth spot has three entrances—a street-level door, a glass sky bridge from the Prudential Center, and a walk-in from the Copley mall—ensuring that you rarely have to go outside to shop or eat.

room

Rooms have the quintessential Marriott flavor with flat-screen TVs and ergonomic workstations. If you're willing to foot the bill for a higher-floor room, you'll be rewarded with views of the city or harbor.

YOU SHOULD KNOW If you're over 62, ask for Marriott's senior discount of 15%.

lobby

Take a stroll into the lobby and you'll grasp the size of the giant hotel, which cascades up to a pretty atrium ceiling. There's a large on-site Starbucks and tech-heavy Connexion Lounge, where you'll spot plenty of convention-goers and mall visitors on their laptops.

gym

There's a spacious fitness center with cardio equipment and free weights.

Catch a machine by the window and you've got a great view of the city.

dining

Champions Sports Bar serves up American cuisine for dinner, and converts to a buffet setup for breakfast. You can also order dinner or drinks in the Connexion Lounge. However, most guests journey into the connected Prudential Center and Copley Place for a variety of restaurant options.

drinking

Champions Sports Bar is centrally located in the lobby, and has more than 40 flat-screen TVs where guests and area employees love to gather to watch sports. You can also order drinks in the Connexion Lounge.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The Marriott's Copley Place location means easy access to several MBTA stops, with the Copley and Prudential stops on the Green Line being the closest. One of the best aspects of the hotel is its location, which allows guests to travel to area attractions on foot.

Restaurants

There are a handful of restaurants, like Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse (5-minute walk) and Earl's Kitchen & Bar (6-minute walk), inside Copley Place and the Prudential Center, if you're looking to avoid going outside. But there's tons of options on nearby Boylston street, including Abe & Louie's (5-minute walk) for delicious steak and seafood, and The Capital Grille (10-minute walk).

Bars

Boylston Street has plenty of watering holes. For classic sports bars, try the Pour House Bar and Grill (8-minute walk) or Whiskey's (8-minute walk). For classier cocktail bars, try City Bar (5-minute walk) in the nearby Lenox Hotel, or Lolita Back Bay (7-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

A Copley Square location means you're within walking distance to some of Boston's biggest attractions.
