Boston Marriott Copley Place completes renovation

The Boston Marriott Copley Place announced that its five year full renovation has been completed. From guest rooms to meeting space, lobbies and restaurants, to health club and pool areas, this hotel has been entirely re-imagined and re-designed.

All 1,100 guestrooms and 47 suites have been transformed into retreats with Marriott Hotels & Resorts Refreshing Mint interior design, inspired by nature. The décor palette combines splashes of mint green with chocolate brown hues. Also done were new lighting, artwork, desk chair, wall coverings, window treatments, and bath amenities, combined with technical necessities, such as wired and wireless Internet connection, 37 inch HDTVs, laptop safes and mini-refrigerators. The hotel’s Concierge Lounge has also been significantly expanded and updated.

Seventy thousand square feet of flexible meeting space was also renovated during the course of this project. The 23,431-square-foot Grand Ballroom now features mahogany millwork, tone-on-tone wall coverings, bronze light fixtures and jewel-hued carpets. Three custom-designed chandeliers are adorned with 29,000 crystal pendants serve as focal points. Digital lighting systems and an accessible grid allow for outstanding theater-style and décor lighting capabilities. Likewise, digital sound systems and improved acoustics, as well as wireless and wired capabilities and fiber optic cabling, have been added.


The reconfigured 22,500-square-foot Back Bay Conference and Exhibit Hall is available in its entirety for trade shows, and can now be sub-divided into seven mid-sized meeting rooms, measuring 900 square feet to 2,000 square feet. Three brand new mid-sized meeting rooms have been added to the first floor, and all pre-existing small and mid-sized meeting rooms have been renovated. These spaces feature contemporary décor, new sound systems, and wired and wireless Internet access.

The hotel’s public areas, including lobbies, restaurants and lounges, have likewise been transformed. On the first floor, the front desk area is now just inside the hotel doors, off Huntington Avenue. This now has a curvilinear design. Meanwhile, an adjacent elliptical seating area provides a meeting space.

On the hotel’s second level, a new Champions restaurant is the centerpiece, with its 12 x 24 foot HD screen, over 40 flat panel televisions, and a sound system. The restaurant has open, circular design, along with its all-American grill menu, 36 beers on tap, and hand-crafted cocktails. The second floor also features an expanded Starbucks coffee bar, a new Connexion Lounge, a relocated business center, and a refreshed and redesigned Atrium Shop.

There is also a new health club area, which now offers cardiovascular and weight training equipment, and the renovated pool and whirlpool with city views. Massage is available in renovated treatment rooms.

The Boston Marriott Copley Place is located at 110 Huntington Avenue, in the heart of Boston’s historic Back Bay.
