Boston’s history, nature inspire Westin Copley Place redesign

The Westin Copley Place in Boston completed the renovation of its rooms and suites.

The redesign involved Jacqueline McGee, principal of Boston-based Perkins+Will, who drew inspiration from the history, arts and culture of Boston and Copley Square.

The rooms at the renovated Back Bay hotel now have custom décor that plays into Boston’s culture, with photo collages, cobblestone patterns, floral patterns inspired by the Public Garden and metal artwork featuring the Citgo and T signs. Bathrooms have new sliding entrance doors, and most now offer stand-up walk-in showers.
