BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- One of North America's most prominent animation conventions is coming to Boston from March 21-23, 2014, and the Courtyard Boston Copley Square has the best prices in town. Reserve before February 28 and the nightly rates at this conveniently situated Boston boutique hotel will start at just $199.
Anime Boston got its start in 2003 with 4,000 members and has become one of the most important animation conventions in the United States, drawing well over 20,000 attendees over the three-day annual gathering. The convention celebrates Japanese animation and comics, but has grown to cover all sorts of Japanese history and pop culture, including J-Pop, J-Rock, and different types of live-action Japanese media. Highlights of the conference include an anime music video contest, karaoke, game shows, video games, dances, a manga library, a charity auction, a swap meet, and an artist's alley and art show where artists sell their work. And of course, there will be a full roster of entertaining and informative panel discussions and workshops. The formal ball on Saturday night is a gala affair. And every year an array of special guests and industry representatives make appearances. For more about this unparalleled anime event visit www.animeboston.com
If you're attending the anime convention, the Courtyard Boston Copley Square is the best bet in town.

The Prudential Center, Copley Place, Newbury Street, and Back Bay are all nearby and, best of all, the hotel is within walking distance of the Hynes Convention Center so getting to and from the convention couldn't be easier.
When you're not soaking up all that the animation convention has to offer, the Courtyard Boston Copley Square has everything you'll need to relax and feel at home. All guest rooms have luxury bedding, complimentary Wi-Fi, and in-room coffee and tea service. The gorgeously refurbished 1800s apartment building is in one of Boston's most atmospheric neighborhoods but there is also easy access to all of Boston's top attractions.
