This was an exciting change from the Carolinas. We stayed at the Marriott Copley Square which we managed to get for $125 by bidding on Priceline. It was a great deal because they upgraded us to a suite on the 33rd floor with a spectacular view. Copley square was a great area for shopping and restarants and a convenient walk to subways and the historic downtown area. I sure hope my neice decides to go to college here so I have an excuse to return - one cloudy misty day in Boston was not enough.
