Best Rooms: Located next to Berkeley St., Berkeley Residence is surrounded by equally tall buildings, so you won't find any great views.
Best Rooms: Queen rooms are located in three different areas of the hotel. Some of the rooms offer lovely views of Copley Square, while rooms in the center of the building don't have views, but are much quieter.
