Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
Spending time on Newbury Street is a great way to spend time while in Boston. Beautiful New England brick stores, charming streets and some great shopping. So many places to choose from for a quick lunch, coffee or a glass of wine.
Absolutely fabulous church seems to be a guest from a fairytale. Great to walk around, great to visit inside (note that you may not be permitted to take photos during a service). Your visit to Boston doesn’t count if you haven’t seen at least exterior of this gem.

"We took this quick tour of the Mapparium"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by mariellenserena
We took this quick tour of the Mapparium. If you have time to fit it in your schedule, I highly recommend. It doesn't take long and is $6 per person. Unfortunately you can't take photos inside. It's pretty cool though once inside. It's really just like standing inside the middle of a globe. Pretty cool!
We stayed at the Fairmont, so everyday we walked out of the hotel, we passed by Copley Square. There was something happening here every single day. There was an informational exhibit one day, and the next was a Farmers Market.
It's a small square, but getting here lets you see so many other sites that are withing steps (Trinity Church,...
Great food. Cooking to perfection. Love the decor of the place. Waiter was good but not great. Did not ask if we needed more water. Had to ask for it. Didn’t ask if we needed another drink or another soda.
We were looking for a pre-concert meal within walking distance of Jordan Hall, and are so glad we found the SRV, short for Serene Republic of Venice. The restaurant specializes in creative Northern Italian appetizers (cicchetti), small plates (piatti), larger house-made grain-based dishes (grani), and has a bustling bar. The upscale room was large, but also warm and welcoming, divided...
It’s located next to the lobby of Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. I was there for breakfast. The breakfast menu was decent with enough options, including the Benedict with lobster. That is very Bostonian, ha!
The service was very good and the atmosphere was great. The restaurant has a very high ceiling with a lot of details and big tall windows...
I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and always receive a high level of service. My recent trip was no different, despite the small staff do to the covid-19 outbreak. All my needs were met, the staff was upbeat and positive, all services were in tact (except the restaurant), it was another great stay.
Our first time in Boston and we were very happy with our hotel.
Room was a very generous size.
Friendly helpful staff - doormen, check in, concierge, bar staff - everyone !
We were there in the middle of winter. Would love to come back again in summer.
Went to Boston for a quick business trip and had the next day to explore. Decided to pick this area of Boston due to its vicinity of restaurants and things to do. Stayed on the 8th floor in a corner room with an amazing view! Place was clean and the employees are accommodating. I would recommend this place over and...
No complaints about the services we received. The conference room was comfortable. The temperature in the room stayed consistent. I liked the access to other stores and restaurants. The easy access to 95 S upon leaving the city was wonderful. Overall, it was a great experience and one that my husband and I look forward to repeating in the future.
Stayed at Loews Boston for four nights as part of a business trip - driving 30 minutes north to Beverly every day.
Great location with 10 minute walk to the main park (from where the Freedom trail start). Good rooms - obviously without the avoidance of traffoc noise - but ok and expected for a central location.
No breakfast buffet...
