All 1,100 guestrooms and 47 suites have been transformed with Marriott Hotels & Resorts Refreshing Mint interior design, inspired by nature. The palette combines mint green with rich chocolate brown hues. New lighting, artwork, desk chair, wall coverings, window treatments, and bath amenities are combined with technology such as wired and wireless internet connection, 37" HDTVs, laptop safes and mini-refrigerators. The hotel's Concierge Lounge has also been expanded and updated.
Seventy thousand square feet of flexible meeting space has been renovated during the course of the project. The 23,431-square-foot Grand Ballroom features mahogany millwork, tone-on-tone wall coverings, bronze light fixtures, and jewel-hued carpets. Three custom-designed chandeliers are adorned with 29,000 crystal pendants. Digital lighting systems and an easily accessible grid allow for theater-style and decor lighting capabilities. Updates were also made to digital sound systems, wireless and wired capabilities, acoustics , and fiber optic cabling.
The reconfigured 22,500-square-foot Back Bay Conference and Exhibit Hall is available for trade shows, and can now be sub-divided into seven mid-sized meeting rooms, measuring 900 to 2,000 square feet. Also of note, three brand new mid-sized meeting rooms have been added to the first floor, and all pre-existing small and mid-sized meeting rooms have been renovated.
The hotel's public areas, including lobbies, restaurants and lounges, have also been transformed. On the first floor, the front desk area is now just inside the hotel doors, and features a curvilinear design.
Boston Marriott Copley Place also added a new health club area including a fitness center and a renovated pool and whirlpool.
