After being invited to stay at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston, I am in awe of this truely beautiful and elegant hotel, rich in history and glamour, the absolute epitome of sophisticated style and luxury.
The Fairmont Copley Plaza opened in 1912 on the site of the former Museum of Fine Arts in Copley Square, Boston and is named in honour of John Singleton Copley, the great American painter.
Stepping in to the hotel today is a very similar experience as to what guests would have experienced back in 1912, with the hotel having preserved the buildings classical architecture and decor and even the secret hidden bar in the ball room which was used during the prohibition era.
Celebrities to have graced the decadent hallways in years gone by include Frank Sinatra, Pavarotti, Tony Bennett and Elizabeth Taylor to name but a few.
After taking in the hotels breathtaking hallways and splendour we were treated to a delicious taster menu in the hotels famous OAK bar and restaurant, formerly known as The Merry Go Round bar during prohibition, to celebrate their 5th year in operation. This restaurant is certainly worth a visit, with its cosy atmosphere and signature cocktails, next to a roaring fireplace and solid wood panelling, this refined restaurant and bar offer up a menu that you will want to return to sample time and time again!
Overlooking the Copley Square in downtown Boston the hotel’s spacious rooms certainly offer a relaxing nights stay whether you are staying for business of leisure.
