Guest rooms at the award-winning Boston Marriott Copley Place are sporting a new look, following a $21 million renovation. From furniture to bedding, carpeting to drapes, and television sets to bathroom fixtures, each of the over 1,000 standard guest rooms have been completely remodeled. The resulting design is at once classic and contemporary, with a comfortable, residential appeal.
As guests enter the room, they are struck first by the elegant and inviting bedding package. A lofty, thick duvet is turned back to reveal an assortment of the highest quality down pillows. Cotton sheets are cool and crisp, and the bottom sheet is fitted, just like at home. The all-new foam mattress provides restful support for road-weary travelers.
Across from the bed, an elegant armoire holds a 27” television monitor, a state-of-the-art safe designed to house laptop computers, complimentary coffee and tea service, and a small refrigerator. Guests can stock their own ice box with items of personal preference, unlike the typical, pre-set selection found in most mini-bars. Correspondingly, the hotel’s updated gift shop inventory includes a variety of snacks and drinks perfect for late night munching or a light, healthy break.
Essential for most travelers, the two-tiered desk provides flexible and generous space. The lower tier is on casters, and can be rolled out to form an L-shaped office, or removed completely to another area of the room for dining purposes. On top of the desk, a bright reading lamp and two-line telephone ensure the user’s complete convenience. An ergonomic chair makes late nights at the computer easy, at least on the back. In addition, plump, comfortable reading chairs create another distinct area for working or relaxing.
The guest room color palette is a harmonious mix of vibrant blues, soothing greens, rich burgundies and smoldering golds. Carpets, draperies, linens and upholstery complement each other without competing. Wooden furnishings are finished in warm cherry tones. Throughout the room, regional artwork, brushed nickel lamps and oversized mirrors create a homey ambiance.
Bathrooms have also been completely remodeled. They now boast green granite and cherry wood vanities, and craftsman’s four-tile porcelain floors. Polished nickel wall sconces, local artwork, and a boldly patterned shower curtain continue some of the bedroom’s decorative themes.
Guests who prefer concierge level accommodations enjoy all of these improvements, plus additional amenities, including complimentary bottled water, specialized bath products, and thick terry robes. The Concierge Lounge is also recently upgraded. Lounge seating, as well as meal and cocktail service areas are all new, and a shimmering chandelier adds finish to the breathtaking room. An expanded concierge desk provides an inviting environment for those requiring the resources of a professional concierge.
