The Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston is set to turn 100 years old in August, but the celebrations are already starting $20 million of renovations are underway, and the hotel is also offering themed packages to guests. The hotels head-to-toe improvements, set to be completed in the spring, include a revamp of all guestrooms and suites, including the Fairmont Gold rooms and lounge; updates to the grand lobby and ballrooms; an entirely new health club on the rooftop; and the addition of a new restaurant in the space formerly occupied by the Oak Room. (The Oak Room and Oak Bar have been relocated to the St. James room.)
The two themed packages on offer are both available now. If youre particularly interested in the hotels 100 year history, consider the Celebration of a Century package, which starts at $200/night for a Fairmont Room. Included in the package is one night in a newly renovated room, a private history tour of the hotel, and a history booklet. The package is offered through December 31, 2012.
Previous visitors should also keep an eye out for any Copley Plaza memorabilia the hotel has put out a search for items to include in a display for the historic tours. www.fairmont.com/copleyplaza
