I'm from Boston so I know the area well. This unit is seriously the best location ever. It overlooks the Boston marathon finish line and is smack in the heart of Copley/Back Bay. Believe me, plenty of places claim to be in back bay and they aren't. If anything, Nick undersold the location. It's amazing. As for the unit itself, it's a floor-through, elevatored unit and it's fantastic. I spend a lot of time on airbnb and another site that shall remain nameless looking for luxury rentals in Boston (we travel there a lot), believe me there isn't another property like this one. The building itself is unassuming from the outside but to get off the elevator into your own huge, luxurious space, well, it's just decadent. Also, there are very few units in the building, which we loved--no noise from neighbors. Even though the place is only on the second floor, it's super quiet so you get a great combination of a terrific view plus quiet, pretty hard to come by in a city. The living area was really nice and comfortable, the kitchen is beautiful and has everything you need (I cooked a turkey in there and prepared thanksgiving dinner!), and the bathrooms are huge and very nice. The master bedroom (only one we used) had a very comfortable bed and a nice tv. We slept well in there. If it's your first trip to Boston, you can't go wrong with this place. Trust me. We've stayed at: the taj, the copley plaza, the ritz, the lennox, the mandarin, the commonwealth, the eliot, XV Beacon, the Westin,and probably some others I can't remember. I would take Nick's place over those in a heartbeat. We will be back.
