This is a nice hotel, but hugely overpriced for what you get, in our experience of small 'luxury' boutique hotels. There were a few things that didn't work for us. The bedrooms we had were very nice, but dark as per the photos on the website. The wood has a massive impact on the lighting in the room and although... More

The hotel was charming, intimate and very charming. I checked out of the Taj and moved to the Beacon. The room was nice and I liked the small but clean gym on the rooftop. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend the hotel to any global traveler.

We stayed as a family of 5 at the hotel in august. I was excited to stay here due to the reviews I had read but was underwhelmed when I arrived . The foyer is a little drab and cramped. Nevertheless the concierge and receptionist were brilliant throughout our entire stay and very helpful at all times. Our rooms were... More

This hotel grows on you.I was not sure if I had made a good choice,whenI arrived,but when I left I felt that I would return on my next visit to Boston. My only complaint is that the room was very dark,with virtually no natural light,due to the close proximity of a building opposite.

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

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
