An ideal boutique hotel for those seeking exceptional service, attention to every detail and an ideal location. Rooms were large, meticulously clean and well thought out. The rooftop deck with its gardens and outdoor hot tub was a relaxing oasis with city skyline views. We chose the bed and breakfast package and enjoyed prime steak and eggs, cast iron banana... More

This is a good hotel but in common with a lot of boutique hotels lacks some of the facilities of the more conventional five star offerings. No real lounge area, no decent bar space and super trendy and thus busy restaurant being the obvious issues. Thankfully we had taken a studio rather than a room which meant that most of... More

Had a great stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and efficient and in particular Jonathan the concierge assisted with tour and restaurant bookings. The hotel car was also booked to take us to certain places in the city. The hotel is also in an ideal location close to sights and shopping within walking distance of most things.... More

We loved everything about the XV Beacon. The location was ideal, the property was wonderful - we loved, loved, loved our room - spacious, nice fireplace, interesting architectural details outside our windows, super comfy bed, good sized closet, great decor and details in the bathroom - I could go on and on. We are fairly seasoned travelers and used to... More

We booked a last-minute one-night getaway at XV Beacon, and the experience exceeded our expectations. I first considered XV Beacon because it was around the corner from our dinner reservations on Park Street (for those not from Boston, it's literally 1/10 of a mile). I called about 3pm and mentioned it was for a special occasion. When we checked in... More

We stayed at at XV Beacon on the back end of our honeymoon. We are used to NY size rooms so weren't surprised at how small the rooms at XV were. The fireplace in each room and high end cosmetics were a nice touch. The location is great, close to local shopping districts and very convenient to the airport. The... More

I did a thousand hours of research and landed on XV Beacon. From the welcome emails to the drive back to airport, our stay was perfect. It was intimate, quiet, perfect location & wonderful staff. The room was nice sized and loved the fireplace. Every time we left, we would come back & our room was straightened. The concierge is... More

The XV Beacon is one of my favorite hotels. It is in a great location, within walking distance of many Boston activities. The service here is superb. The rooms are clean and modern. A special thanks to Anthony at the front desk who made our stay even more enjoyable. Also, thanks to Paul for his driving services. He was super... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the XV Beacon in June, and even got upgraded on arrival. The room was a lovely size but the bathroom was very small, but not an issue. The bed was lovely and comfortable with quality linens. The hotel has a lovely modern decor throughout, which was a nice change as all the other hotels... More

Had the rooms been a little larger, this would have been perfect! The staff was excellent and always acted interested to help. We would definitely stay there again. Also our rate included breakfast which was excellent!
