Fairmont Copley Plaza
Opened in the Back Bay in 1912, the Fairmont Copley Plaza is a seven-story Beaux-Arts building—complete with a spacious lobby decorated with Italian marble columns, a gilded ceiling, and crystal chandeliers. Every U.S. president since Taft has visited here, as have celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, and Richard Burton. All 383 guestrooms are designed with red and gold fabrics, custom-made furnishings, and marble bathrooms. In addition to an award-winning brasserie, the hotel offers special services such as the companionship of Canine Ambassador Catie Copley, a black Labrador who can accompany guests on walks.
