The Sheraton Boston is connected to the Prudential Mall and Copley Place, where Boskone members can dine at a choice of two Legal Sea Foods, Dick's Last Resort, Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, or many other restaurants within a short walking distance. There is also a fully enclosed walking route from Amtrak's Back Bay Station to our facilities.

Marché Movenpick, a fan favorite, recently closed. See the Boston Globe article.
