enjoyable place for shopping and bonus visitor attraction of a Skywalk Observatory on the 50th floor of the Prudential Tower with 360 degree views, audio tapes explaining history of what we are enjoying; open until 10 pm so enjoyed sunset over the Charles River below.

Very nice view. Must remove hats before entering restaurant/bar area. One Manhattan cocktail was $15! More expensive after 8 P.M.

We stopped in the prudential center to take a break from touring around Boston. There is a large Barnes and noble and good air conditioning. In addition, the prudential had a kids scavenger. Hunt that was fun for our children.

This really is an incredible view of the city. It definitely gives you a great view of the combination of old and new architecture, the Charles River and the Atlantic. Military veterans are able to get in free which was an added perk. I highly...More

Stayed at the Copley Marriott Mall is tied into four hotels. Upscale boutiques (Dior, YSL, Gucci) and stores— Neimans, Saks—a shopper’s dream come true. Restaurants also anchor the mall. Lovely ambience—wide hallways and gardens to enjoy during lunch or work.

Wow! The 50th floor is something that should not be missed! Breathtaking views and a narrated tour that can be done on your own. Plus, you might drive by the TripAdvisor building. Lol A must see for families!

skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit

Well I went when it was raining and it was fine. We in fact enjoyed the indoor attraction as there were audio guides and we could still see all the sites.
