My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 15 Beacon last Saturday night. We came into Boston for our 20th Anniversary. This former mansion built in 1722 was converted to a Modern luxury boutique hotel. The decor is tasteful with modern but antique flare. Some of the furniture seems to fit the mansion in the 1700's. Each room has... More

We stayed at the XV Beacon Hotel last September whilst visiting a friend in Boston. Both of us travel on business in Europe quite regularly and are used to staying in some high quality hotels. The decor and facilities on offer at this hotel were what you'd expect from a premium establishment so that was a given; what bowled us... More

A fabulous little boutique hotel located very centrally in Boston. It was -8 centigrade when we were there so we didn't do too much walking around, but it appeared to be in a cute historic location close to the park, which we could see from our room. We were upgraded to a corner suite and I was very impressed by... More

Absolutely loved my short stay here. Basic queen room with fireplace had every imaginable comfort. Room service breakfast as good as I have had anywhere. Great shower, great TV and stereo set up with speakers in bathroom. Cannot wait to come back and stay longer!

My husband and I stayed at XV for a weekend getaway. The room was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. The concierge was helpful in planning our itinerary and obtaining reservations and the hotel town car made travel very convenient.

We were in Boston for Motown the Musical. This hotel is very close to the Boston Opera House. We booked a deal which included $100 credit plus $50 Breakfast credit. Since we were only staying the night we had all our meals in the hotel. We had the best and hottest room service food we have ever had. They have... More

This place is beautiful! I stayed in the contempoary classic room for my husband's 30th birthday. The room was spacious, clean,and it looks exactly like the picture. The hotel offers complimentary Lexus car service throughout the city. The staff was very accommodating. My only complaint is the super soft bed. I usually sleep on a tempurpedic at home and had...

I really like XV Beacon, but you need to know what you are getting. The rooms are very well appointed, but they are small and dark. The corridors are very short (convenient), but the whole place is not for someone with claustrophobic tendencies. The lobby is really worthless as it was filled with luggage carts during our stay. The front... More
