Celebrating the Life of Catie Copley

Catie Copley was originally trained by the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind. Developing small cataracts in her youth, she was unable to complete the program and a career change was in order. Fairmont Copley Plaza adopted Catie in 2004 where she became a member of the hotel staff, meeting and greeting guests in the lobby, accompanying them for walks around the city, and serving as a community liaison.

Catie had a knack for making everyone she met feel more at home and comfortable at the hotel, and was always readily available for moments of canine companionship. She is the central character in two published books, "Catie Copley" and "Catie Copley's Great Escape," and her legacy in Boston will never be forgotten.

Catie's DUCK Boat

Catie's DUCK Boat

Boston Duck Tours has honored Catie's memory by renaming one of their DUCK boats after her, as a tribute to our special staff member. Catie loved laying outside on sunny days and in the past, ConDUCKtors would point out Catie to guests on their tours as they drove by our St. James Street entrance. She and her caretaker, Joe Fallon, would also often visit the garage facility that housed the DUCKs and greet the ConDUCKtors before they left for their tours. With "Catie Copley" permanently joining the roster of DUCKs, guests who ride on her DUCK boat are invited to call out a "woof" in Catie's memory when they pass our hotel.
