Copley House is funky, but the location is fantastPositiv: We lived in Back Bay in the past so the old sounds and smells of an authentic row house were familiar and expected when we reserved the room. It was clean, albeit old and aging, the kitchenette useful and well supplied, the chairs and table at the bay windows and view very nice. There are stores nearby for food as well as nice takeouts. It is not for everyone - but we loved it! To be in the center of Boston for that price was fantastic.Negativ: We were able to air out the smell of febreze or the like. It was not needed and if it had not aired out, it would have been a problem.
Pleasant and private!Positiv: My new wife and I honeymooned there for one night. It was an old building, but clean and well-furnished. Each little apartment has everything you need, plus ours had a nice view. The bed was fantastically comfortable and we enjoyed being able to eat food we made ourselves at at little table. Staff was kind and pleasant to deal with. This place is not new or renovated or fancy by any standards, but well maintained and cozy, and a great value. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking to stay at a decent place in Boston for a good price!Negativ: The cheap shampoo and soap provided smelled a little weird, and there was a funny little device on the wall that may have been meant for a lamp or some device that had exposed wires. We parked at Alewife station for $7 and took the T in because the parking at Copley House is $20 and the cheapest around (and we hate driving in Boston traffic). Still, the good outweighed these minor inconveniences!
Positiv: Great location, well-furnished apartmentsNegativ: Not handicap accessible and no mention of that on the website or in any of the information provided. My room was on the 3rd floor in a building with no elevator.
The only interaction I had with staff prior to check out was because I emailed to ask them about a late arrival; did not talk to or hear from anyone else other than that.
Nice location for the price, can't beat itPositiv: Love the location, very close to everything we wanted. Fenway was just a quick walk away as well as a few nice bars. However there were two different tram lines just a few blocks away to get anywhere not within walking distance. Room was small but clean with all the amenities required. Negativ: Didn't care for the coffee, however there was a 711 two blocks down that had green mountain coffee so all was well there. Also didn't care for having to park a few blocks away, but for $15 a day parking, it was better than getting a ticket.
Lived in BostonPositiv: Back Bay neighborhood townhouses converted to hotel . . . didn't "stay" in Boston for a night --- I lived in Boston for a night . . . love this place . . . will be my 1st choice for Boston in future
Copley for the winPositiv: The price for being two blocks away from Prudential center was great as the event I was attending was being held there.
Clean sheets, floors, and otherwise.
Friendly and helpful staff!Negativ: The walls were thin enough where I could clearly hear any noises including coughs, grumbles and otherwise of next door patrons.
Positiv: Friendly staffNegativ: Copley House actually runs 4 separate apartment buildings in Boston's South End. We selected them for their Newton St. location but they sent us three blocks the wrong way on a side street. In the -10F days we were there that was miserable. But the worst was that the heating in the room could not keep up with the outside temperature. Our room never warmed up above 60F, which basically ruined our romantic weekend getaway. We flagged this to management on the night of our check-in. They made one halfhearted attempt to help (at least we assume that is what the 10am knock on our door was when we were sleeping) and then they never tried to help again. A disappointing experience (this was our third weekend rental in the South End and the other two providers were much better).
