This hotel is possibly the best I've ever stayed at. Amazingly cosy and luxurious rooms and I just loved the roof terrace with the hot tub and everything. There is also a very nice restaurant. Service was just excellent and the location of the hotel is great indeed.

XV lives up to its reputation and is well worth the luxury rates. Stayed here for two days and was so sad to leave. I visit Boston often, usually staying at Ritz or Four Seasons, but both were booked. Decided to try XV-- so glad I did. From arrival to departure, the staff did everything in their power to make...

Love the location of this hotel on Beacon Street. Truly exceptional staff from the front desk staff, to the concierge, to the doorman and drivers. But very very average dated rooms with worse views. The first room they gave us on the second floor faced directly over a laneway where the garbage for the hotel and the neighbouring office building... More

I can't think of a better location than XV Beacon - lobby is small but welcoming, service amazing and friendly, we LOVED the old fashioned elevators and the apples/oranges available on each floor. Our room was very quaint with a king size bed, pull out coach, gas fireplace (easy to switch on), nightly choice of bath salts, big fluffy bath... More

We spent a weekend there as a family of 5. They treated us like royalty! Couldn't do enough to make our lives easier; even rented a car for us when it was time to leave. While the rooms are small, they are warm and inviting. The location couldn't be better, and they have car service for you to use during... More

Beacon XV has the location, charm and service to make it a perfect hotel. We had a one bedroom suite with a fireplace that was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was high end but a little cramped. I 'd prefer a nice shower to the European style tub with fold out glass half door. The hotel bar was... More

If you are looking for local charm, fantastic service, great people and a great price try XV Beacon in the heart of downtown Boston. Unique colonial decor with a fireplace in the room is perfect for any occasion. This place has the "Wow" factor. Ritz and 4 Seasons watch out because this place is superior. Close to Freedom Trail, the... More

The service that was provided to myself and my colleagues upon our arrival and beyond was extra ordinary. XV Beacon’s attention to detail, concierge personal attention, complimentary car service are just some of the elements that make your stay truly exceptional. The rooms were incredibly unique including the fire places , in fact it almost felt as if we were... More

A very welcoming beautiful hotel with a very attentive and professional staff. The Moooo restaurant was a great place for our family to gather and celebrate my son's birthday! The food was amazing. We will be back for sure.

I was here for St Patty's Day and really had a blast. XV Beacon really knows how to make you feel welcome as a guest. The amenities in the rooms were incredible (e.g. jacuzzi bath, fire place, queen bed). Will definitely stay here if I find myself in Boston again.
