Just spent a night at the XV Beacon and couldn't be happier. The hotel is in an amazing location at the top of Beacon Hill, right next to the state house. The hotel itself is boutiquey with style. The room (501) was somewhat spacious, very clean and charming with an electric fireplace. Frette towels (and perhaps linens) were a nice... More

In March 2014 I planned a surprise trip to Boston to celebrate my husbands 30th birthday. During the planning process I emailed back and forth with Kate (Director of Revenue and Reservations) and she put me in touch with staff from the hotel who were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and professional and they assisted me to plan our time in Boston...

I want to retire here. From the well appointed room, to the car that drove us to Menton, to the staff that was there but almost invisible. This is why you leave home. We're returning this August for our annual pilgrimage.

Perfect location, beautiful facility, outstanding service. We look forward to our next trip to Boston. From the doormen, front desk staff, room service, housekeeping to the concierge, service was exceptional. We are frequent travelers and this is this nicest hotel we've ever had the pleasure of staying at.

Exceptional service, great attention to detail, beautiful rooms, excellent location - fantastic hotel! I particularly loved our jacuzzi bath, rooftop garden (shame there's no bar up there, as would be perfect!), hotel car service, and atmospheric restaurant. The breakfast at Mooo was the best of our entire trip. Only criticism is that we ordered a bottle of Veuve champagne at... More

We were in Boston for four nights at this exceptional hotel after a lovely stay on the Cape. The hotel staff was not only extremely professional, but very friendly, warm and inviting as well. We used the concierge and the car service several times and were quite pleased with both experiences. All of the service we received was prompt and... More

We arrived at the hotel about 9:30 on Saturday morning, the 4th of July after disembarking from a cruise. We had two rooms reserved but only one was ready that early- which was fine. We stashed our luggage in that room and headed out to see Boston with advice from the concierge and one of the doormen. Everyone was so... More

Small luxury hotel with only 60 rooms. Expensive during peak months.The location was wonderful and my husband and I could walk to everything which is a bonus .Old Boston, Beacon Hill and Charles street was a few blocks away.Some rooms are small but cozy with a fireplace.Did not need to use the fireplace in June.A lot of attention to details...

Dark ,gloomy room facing a brick wall that I could almost touch. Overlooked by office workers in the next building so had to keep our curtains drawn. Woken by Garbage Colection at 6am under our window.

Stayed for 3 nights in June. Loved the location on Beacon Hill, the extremely helpful and friendly staff, and enjoyed staying there very much. Only criticism would be poor lighting in the bedroom. Would definitely go back.
