A weekend in the  Westin Copley Place hotel

A visit to three restaurants as well

We spend last weekend at Westin Copley hotel in Boston's Back Bay.

We took a tour of the four-room Presidential Suite.

Located on the 36th floor, the 2,900 square foot Presidential Suite has exceptional panoramic views of the Charles River, Cambridge, Back Bay, and Copley Square through long walls of windows.

It can accommodate up to 100 people and has a separate pantry, a dining/conference table with seating for eight, and a built-in wet bar.

In addition, two bedrooms and three baths, the Presidential Suite has multiple sitting areas for conversations.  It is Westin's most spacious suite.

There are 803 guest rooms including 132 junior and 10 specialty suites, all with scenic view of the Back Bay.

Bring your bathing suit for a dip in the large indoor pool.

At the hotel we were surround by timeless design, Boston’s iconic style, and such comforts as the plush Westin Heavenly Bed® and the upscale Heavenly Bath®.

Rooms include cherry wood armoires and desks, as well as iPod® docking stations and flat screen televisions that can be connected to computers and audiovisual devices.

Location, location, location

The hotel is on Copley Square next the the legendary Boston Public Library.

It is also the main entrance to Copley Place at 10 Huntington Ave, Boston.

Copley Place is Boston's most distinctive shopping destination in the Northeast with 75 fabulous stores - everything from Neiman Marcus to Christian Dior to Burberry to Armani to Hugo Boss to Eileen Fisher to Tiffany & Company.

Where to dine

There are two restaurants associated with the hotel.

The hotel's dining room,The Huntington, next to the reception area, is great for breakfast, but there are two other restaurants associated with the hotel, and Turner's Fisheries.

We dined the first night at Osushi which is across the hall from the hotel and had a superb dinner ranging from Tempura Oysters to a huge assorted fish dish. Our waitress Diane was all smiles and helped us with the selections.

The second night we dined at Turner's Fisheries where we had Seared Scallops, Grilled Oysters, Crab Cake and Lobster Thermidor. Our waiter, with the appropriate name Ismail, was one of the best we have ever had.

All were beyond good - they were superb.
