Great hotel situated in the heart of Boston. The staff were very friendly and helpful and had a great double room on the 8th floor. Rooms were well equipped and an amazing shower. Great bar in the restaurant and breakfasts are incredible, recommend the Moooo omelette. The rooftop terrace is lovely but only downside is the noise from the generators.... More

This is a perfect hotel In every way. From the moment they receive your car everybody is nice and very efficient. From there on the experience just gets better and better. The rooms are large, with the best beds, pillows and sheets. The shower is a morning treat. And the restaurant has amazing food and the best service. Loved every... More

Stayed in hotel only one night with my wife, which is way too short. Room may have been somewhat small, but furnishings and decorations made up for it. My wife really like the in room fireplace, but it really heats up the room. Good starting place for the the Freedom trail.

This is the hands down the best hotel we've stayed in. Between the staff, the location, the room, all of it. If we could rate it 6 stars, we would. When our stay ended I didn't want to go home. We will 100% return on our next trip to Boston.

Immaculate Boutique Hotel. Our room was comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel could not be better. Close to restaurants,bars,park, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks,Walgreens...just perfect. The staff was helpful. Small workout room- with just the basics to get in a good workout.I have to say the best perk of all was the driver service, which is complimentary. Our drivers Paul... More

We stayed at XV Beacon recently for our 20th wedding anniversary. The room was gorgeous: king bed, sitting area, fireplace and a large bathroom. We booked in-room massages through the concierge (shout out to Jonathan who was so friendly and helpful) and they were the best massages we ever had (ask for Lauren S. and Nanda). Location is great, decor... More

The hotel was very easy to locate, and every staff member was very attentive and extremely helpful. the décor was so warming and cozy-I didn't want to leave! I will definitely be back! I brought my mother to visit my brother who has relocated to Boston from Florida-the Boston bug has definitely bitten me and I may be moving soon... More

We loved staying at XV Beacon for several reasons. Without exception the staff was exceptionally professional and focused on providing the best possible service. Celebrating our 49 anniversary, the provided a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Every day a fresh bowl of Red Delicious Apples were readily available. Our room was quiet and clean with a wonderful shower.... More

We chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews for our weekend trip to Boston. The location was fabulous, walking distance to parks, Newbury St and to the waterfront. Many top rated restaurants a short walk away. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the rooms were charming and clean. We would definitely stay at this hotel next time... More

This hotel was truly luxurious. It's location is great for walking around outside- lots of shops and restaurants and pretty things to look at. Our room was incredible-- beautifully decorated in ivory, dark grays and black. Bed was incredibly comfortable and sheets/towels were perfect. Bathroom was also wonderful and it was so quiet in the room. The staff was sweet... More
