Spent 3 nights at XV (is that 45?) in mid August. Just a terrific experience, from the view from the roughneck, to the super friendly doormen, reception team and concierge, not to mention the complimentary Lexus chauffeur service. Nice! Highly recommended.

We found this an extremely comfortable base for our short visit to Boston. Its location right at the heart of the historic Beacon Hill/Boston Common area, was just perfect. (Yet although in a great spot, it was also very quiet, so it was easy to get a really good night's sleep.) Our room was spacious, well-equipped and nicely designed. (The... More

What a wonderful small hotel in the middle of Boston. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly . We couldn't have asked for a better experience as we were traveling with our grandson. The hotel car was at our disposal when ever we wanted it , which made for a more relaxing time. Next time in Boston... More

We stayed here in the summer, I booked a classic room for my partner and I as we were only staying 2 nights but on arrival we were upgraded to the contemporary classic room which was lovely! This was a beautiful room, the chaise was so comfortable I ended up falling asleep there! This would be an amazing hotel in... More

Booked this hotel as a BA flight and hotel bundle. Very happy during my four night stay for a conference in Boston. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. My package included breakfast, which was a $40 credit on each day for breakfast in the hotel restaurant Moo. Although I didn't take advantage of it - the hotel offers... More

I have spent a number of weeks at this hotel (travel to Boston for business every other week) and this is my home away from home. The staff is meticulous and seems to know your every need before you even request it. The rooms are perfect - all comfort and quiet. Location is not to be beat. Moo (the restaurant... More

Upon pulling into the valet, the service was exceptional. The check in process was seamless and without wait. The room wasn't ready because we were early checking in but only had to wait next door at Moo for a delicious drink and the keys were brought to us at the bar. We went to the room with the elevators and... More

We spent two nights here on a short leisure trip to Boston. The location was good, as we were coming/departing via South Station. Being just off the NE part of the Commons near the State House, it was a good place to jog as well. We had dinner bookings in Chinatown and Japanese restaurant O Ya which were not far... More

I visited Boston with my seven year old daughter and we loved our stay at this hotel. It's very well-located, literally across the street from the Common, so we were able to walk to the Aquarium, museums, Charles Street and many other places. Mostly we loved this hotel because the people were super-nice. From Ozzie at the front desk, to... More

We spent a night at XV Beacon. We chose the Hotel due to the great reviews. The room was very large as we chose one with a king bed on a high floor. The rooms are decorated in dark brown hues and I personally do not like dark rooms. However, that being said the amenities (shampoo and creams) are quite... More
