Is Bostons Westin Copley Place in a good location?
Seriously couldn't be better. The Westin Copley Place is situated in Boston's historic Back Bay. The location is superb and you'll be surrounded by some of the best restaurants and shopping in every direction. A short distance away - 30-minute walk or 15-minute subway ride - is Fenway park. Some rooms even have jaw-dropping views that include the famous ballpark. An even shorter walk away is the historical streets of Boston where famous documents that shaped our nation were signed.

Getting to Bostons Westin Copley Place
Getting to the hotel is super easy no matter which mode of transportation you take. Do know that if you decide to drive your own car parking will cost extra - this is a city after all. You can either valet park or take advantage of hotel parking. The easiest way to get to Boston's back bay is via train or subway. If taking the Amtrak, deboard at Back bay station and the hotel is one block away. For the subway, exit at Copley Station (green line) or Back Bay (orange line). Again, the hotel is one block away from either station. So convenient.
The Room at Bostons Westin Copley Place
There are a wide variety of rooms to choose from at Westin Copley Place - from traditional four occupancy rooms all the way to a sprawling presidential suite. All the rooms come with the softest sheets and pillows... I'm really not exaggerating. Their beds have won awards.
A unique aspect of the hotel is their wellness philosophy which includes sleeping well as a main component. Turn down service includes tiny vials of essential oil balm left bedside. The balm is a unique blend of lavender and chamomile which, once you are tucked into bed, you gently roll on your wrists or temples. The natural scents ease tension and promote an easy transition into peaceful slumber. You'll also find silk sleep masks, luxurious sheets, and the softest pillows in their award-winning Heavenly Bed. Hello dreamland.
WiFi at Bostons Westin Copley Place
No complaints here. The Wifi at The Westin in Boston worked wonderfully. I streamed Netflix and answered emails easily. Do know that I was staying in a club room where WiFi was complimentary.
Onsite Extras at Bostons Westin Copley Place
A stay at the Westin includes a focus on wellness - doesn't matter if you're staying for work or for pleasure.
Like most hotels, each Westin has an extensive gym that all guests are free to use. But it doesn't stop there - they go above and beyond. Forget your gear? Or trying to pack light? Take advantage of Westin's gear lending program. All it takes is a quick call to give them your shoe and clothing size and boom - 15 minutes later - freshly laundered New Balance gear is delivered straight to your room. They even let you keep the socks. Because seriously, who wants to wear someone else's socks? They also have a run concierge on staff who leads guests on runs around the city - sightseeing and fitness all in one.
Dining at and around Bostons Westin Copley Place
In-room dining (my favorite because I'm super lazy) is available in all rooms and the menus have a solid mix of staples and healthy, but delicious, options. Light cocktails are best enjoyed at Bar 10 Boston, a sleek lounge in the hotel. The Huntington Boston is open for breakfast and brunch, check out their menu here. If you want something quick they have a supermarket concept called Ingredients. It's great for a quick meal that are made to grab and go. Oh, and they serve Starbucks coffee.

Should you upgrade to the Westin Club Rooms?
My quick answer is yes. I am constantly eating and working on the road so I love the club rooms. They come with access to the club lounge - a great place for me to get some work done. The lounges also feature continental breakfast, evening hors d'ouevres, and simple snacks you can grab and go before heading out into the city. Like I said above, the WiFi was included with my club room and was excellent. I even streamed Netflix because frankly I'm addicted to TV.
The rooms for club members have some of the best views of Boston. My view included the river, gorgeous sunsets every night, and even a glimpse of Fenway park in the distance. So yeah, if you can book a club room.
