Fairmont Copley Plaza

A proud Boston landmark celebrates its 100th year with a no-holds-barred restoration and continues to stand out as one of America's great historic hotels.

Celebrating its 100th birthday in 2012 with a $20 million restoration, the Fairmont Copley Plaza remains one of Boston’s most historic of hotels. It has a prestigious location in the equally historic neighborhood of Copley Square in Back Bay. The hotel was designed by architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, who was also credited for creating its “sister hotel”, the Plaza, in New York. The Copley Plaza opened in 1912 and was named after American painter John Singleton Copley. It was the first hotel in Boston to have air conditioning.

The highly ornate and colorful entrance hall of the Copley Plaza, referred to over the years as Peacock Alley, provides an elegant first impression. The lobby is a grand historic space, featuring marble columns with gold leaf trim, and a richly detailed, gilded, wooden coffered ceiling. The ceiling is further accentuated with a trompe l’oeil painted mural of a skylight. Another painted ceiling mural graces the Oval Room, which is considered one of the most beautiful ballrooms in Boston.

Virtually all historic public areas of the hotel have been restored, and a new restaurant and meeting spaces have been developed. In addition, the hotel’s 383 guest rooms and suites have been upgraded, and there is now a new health club on the top level.
