In honor of its 100th anniversary, the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston Hotel has completed a more than $20 million restoration and renovation, which included the hotel’s 383 guest rooms and suites, Fairmont Gold, the Lower Lobby meeting space and the addition of a new rooftop health club and Lobby Lounge. The OAK Long Bar + Kitchen also debuts this summer.
Room Renovations & Addition of Eight Signature Mini-Museum Suites
The renovation included all of the 383 guest rooms and suites and the Fairmont Gold Lounge, which recreates the feel of a Back Bay mansion with its residential decor. The hotel has also introduced eight themed suites, each of which celebrate one of the city’s institutions like the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Pops, Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Freedom Trail, the JFK Library and Museum, Boston Public Library, The Museum of Science and The Catie Copley Suite
New Rooftop Health Club
The new Rooftop Health Club has TechnoGym equipment including cardiovascular machines with individual entertainment systems, weight machines, free weights and benches, a stretching area and resistance training and core strengthening equipment. Best of all, the health club has floor to ceiling windows with views of the Back Bay and will also include an outdoor deck.
Additions and Enhancements to Public Areas
The hotel’s public areas have also received some new additions. The Lobby Lounge recently opened with artwork that includes signed lithographs by Matisse, Picasso and Chagall. Catie Copley, the hotel’s canine ambassador, has even received a new custom-made dog bed as part of the renovation of this space. Adjacent to the Lobby Lounge, in Peacock Alley, the original hand-laid mosaic tile floor from 1912 has been restored.
Debut of OAK Long Bar + Kitchen
Following an extensive restoration, OAK Long Bar + Kitchen makes its debut this summer. The menu includes specialty cocktails and farm-to-table inspired American menu. OAK Long Bar + Kitchen has fireplaces (which we hear evoke the sophistication of a University Club) alongside a high-end wine room…and, of course, there's the industrial-inspired 83 foot copper-topped bar. OAK also has a seasonal outdoor patio. For more information about OAK Long Bar + Kitchen please visit oaklongbarkitchen.com.
