Considered one of the most beautiful rooms in Boston, The Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston's Oval Room features a realistic sky and cloud ceiling mural. Legend has it that when John Singer Sargent was painting the murals at the Boston Public Library, he would often come to the hotel and watch the artisans paint the Oval Room's mural as he enjoyed his lunch. The artisans asked Sargent to add his touch to the mural, so Sargent mounted the scaffolding and painted an angel. Sargent's angel graced the ceiling for over 30 years, until the mural was painted over during renovations in the 1940s.
Today, Sargent's angel is the invisible guardian of the Oval Room. Every United States President since Taft (President Clinton stayed at the hotel while he was a candidate), many foreign dignitaries, royalty, and countless celebrities have stayed at The Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston.
