The hotel is well located near Boston Common and an easy walk from restaurants and sights. As the comments suggest, the staff were very courteous and welcoming. The rooms and building were also as the other reviewers suggested. We had a Queen Room which I think was slightly smaller but it was very well maintained by the housekeeping staff. Didn't... More

From the moment you walk through the door of this hotel you are transported to luxury, and efficient staff . The greeting at checkin to the luxury car to take you to your chosen restaurant. I stayed at this hotel with my daughter for one night and wish I had stayed longer, but my travel schedule only allowed one night.... More

Fifteen Beacon (or XV Beacon as they call it) is quite something. It is a lovely reminder of a gentler age. It is set in a perfect part of Boston, right in amongst leafy parks and wonderful historical sites. The rooms are lovely as are the public areas. Everything is done to make you feel very special. The staff are... More

Eclectic design elements, crisp attentive staff, and wonderful amenities. This upscale hotel is the complete package. The room was well appointed with a gas fireplace, rain-shower, flat screen tv, and harmon-kardon audio system with speakers throughout. The hotel is located a 5 minute walk from the Park Station subway stop. Access from the airport is simple - take the silverline... More

I've stayed at XV Beacon several times in the past, and returned in November 2014 for a short business trip. The hotel is incredibly well-executed, feels utterly current, and has impeccably helpful staff. It's really a beautiful small hotel -- with so many gorgeous details in the design. The rooms are roughly divided between opulent and spacious (front side) and... More

The service. THE SERVICE!! It's impeccable. The rooms are truly lovely: fireplace in each. The coffee delivered to the room PRECISELY at the requested time. The cashmere throws, the amazing soap/shampoo/ amenities. Ok, I'm done. Actually, no I'm not-- it's convenient to Newberry, museums, aquarium, harbor, and all things biz. Please tell them I sent you. Oh oh, and MOO!... More

I spent just one night at XV Beacon and look forward to returning. The location and service are excellent. The room was very quiet and well appointed (although small). The one thing that the room lacked was a view. The place of fresh cookies in the room was a nice touch. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made... More

This is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in ,nothing is too much trouble all the Staff have a "CAN DO" attitude. Jonathan on the Concierge desk is brilliant as are his two colleagues. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone where attention to detail and Quality of service are a requirement. The restaurant is pretty good... More

My wife and I just had a fabulous 2 night stay at XV Beacon in Boston. As expected for a high end hotel, the room was large, airy, big windows and very nicely fitted out. What set's this hotel apart is the staff. I can't remember a group of more helpful, happy, courteous staff in a hotel. From the moment... More
