All Aboard! Trolley Tours Give Visitors a Charming Introduction to Downtown Boston

Back by Popular Demand, the Copley Square Hotel in Boston Reinstates Its Trolley Tour Package

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Proving that what's old is new again, the Boston Marriott Copley Place hotel has brought back its beloved Trolley Tour package. Not only is the offer a favorite among Boston hotel packages, but its old-fashioned appeal and hop-on, hop-off convenience make it an ideal way to see 20 of the top attractions around town.

The Trolley Tour package includes two adult tickets to the Old Town Trolley, which offers a stop within the hotel's modern, airy lobby. (This is especially good news for groups that want to purchase additional tickets, because they can do so on property.) So after guests order their morning coffee from the second-floor Starbucks, they can glide down the escalator of this award-winning hotel and begin their adventure.

As one of the most enviably located Boston hotels near Fenway Park, the property makes an ideal starting point for any sightseeing expedition. Once guests board the trolley, they'll find themselves transported back in time to Old State House, Faneuil Hall and the Bunker Hill Monument. They'll come face-to-face with pop culture at the Cheers Pub, the watering hole that inspired the television show of the same name. And they'll get their cultural fix from institutions like the Boston Children's Museum, the MIT Museum and the Institute of Contemporary Art.

After a day spent cruising through the best of the city, visitors can return to the hotel to enjoy some of the most deluxe accommodations in downtown Boston. Thick mattresses wrapped in 300-threadcount linens, granite countertops bedecked with Thann bath products and 37-inch HDTVs complemented by 24-hour room service all promise a rejuvenating stay.

Considering this property's position among Boston hotels near Newbury Street, Trinity Church and Boston Common, it's a good thing guests will wake up refreshed. Any sights they might've missed during their trolley tour can easily be accessed from their Back Bay hotel, or they can spend more time doing what they love best, whether that's shopping, catching a game at Fenway Park or perusing masterpieces at the MFA.

To climb aboard the Trolley Tour package, travelers may use the promotional code ARN when making reservations online or by calling 1-800-228-9290. The package, which is available Thursday through Sunday until December 30, 2014, offers rates starting as low as $204 per night. And that's something everyone likes to see repeated.
