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. What would you say to a tour of sumptuous public spaces inspired by Versailles and other grand manses? It’s an integral part of your stay here, as you can wander through the hotel's magnificent Peacock Alley and peruse its well-curated collection of prints by Matisse, Chagall, and Picasso. Don’t forget to say hello to the onsite canine ambassadors, Catie and Carly Copley, who hold court in the main lobby.
