The Sheraton Boston Hotel is a giant, family-friendly spot centrally located in Copley Square. Since it's part of the Copley Place complex, which connects to the Prudential Center, guests have plenty of restaurant and shopping at their fingertips without ever needing to step outside. Those headed to events at the Hynes Convention Center will be doubly pleased, since it's also connected to the building.
Rooms are classic Sheraton style, furnished in muted tones and ideal for families or visiting conventioneers. Their trademark Sweet Sleeper beds have plush mattresses and luxe white linens, and rooms also feature LCD flat-panel TV's, ergonomic workspaces, and free coffee, tea, and water.

Given the size of the Sheraton, the lobby is a sprawling space bustling with guests and those in the area attending conferences. [email protected] is the lobby workstation, where you can get on the wifi for free, or print your boarding pass. There is also a full-service Starbucks off the lobby, which is a plus.
The Sheraton boasts Boston's largest indoor/outdoor heated salt water lap swimming pool with a retractable roof for the warmer months. You can ever order food to enjoy by the pool. There is also a sauna in the pool area.
Green Tangerine is the full-service spa and salon at the Sheraton, great for massages, facials, or manicures.

The Sheraton Boston Hotel's location means easy access to several MBTA stops, with the Hynes Convention Center stop 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. Guests traveling to and from Logan International Airport will appreciate the Back Bay Logan Express, a shuttle bus that departs every 20 minutes from both locations, or the GoBoston Shuttle, which partners with the hotel to provide transport to and from Logan International Airport for $17 per person. There's also a fully staffed Hertz rental desk adjacent to the gift shop.
There are a handful of restaurants, like Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse (10-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 (7-minute walk) for delicious steak and seafood, and The Capital Grille (5-minutes walk).
Boylston Street has plenty of watering holes. For classic sports bars, try the Pour House Bar and Grill (5-minute walk) or Whiskey's (5-minute walk). For classier cocktail bars, try City Bar (10-minute walk) in the nearby Lenox Hotel, or Lolita Back Bay (15-minute walk).
