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!

Location: If you want to stay somewhere really central this is it. Only a couple of minutes walk from the start of the freedom trail, opposite Boston common, a 10 minutes walk to waterfront... Service: Very helpful & attentive Hotel car: Great - we were able to use it a few times. Have stayed places before where they have cars... More

XV Beacon is a wonderful boutique hotel in an ideal location. You can walk everywhere easily from here - the Freedom Trail starts less than a block away, and there are great shopping areas and excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. Every staff member was friendly and helpful, they arranged a wheelchair rental, trolley tickets and dinner reservations, always smiled... More

The hotel is in a great spot, close to everything. They were really helpful, both before we arrived sorting out all the things we wanted to do, and while we were there. The hotel car, was great, I've been to hotels with cars before and never been able to use them, this one you could book, and with only 70... More

I travel quite and bit and am honestly a bit of a hotel snob. XV Beacon is one of my favorite hotels so far. It is perfectly located in Boston - just up from Charles St and walking distance to great shopping on Newbury and fantastic restaurants all over. The hotel restaurant Moo was incredible. Excellent food and service. The... More

Friendly small scale hotel in great location. Liked the room - Classic. Certainly not "spacious" but adequate. Gas fire did make the room cosy. Bathroom again adequate. We had problem with no hot water. Reported in morning and we were promised would be addresses but still not fixed in evening. Really frustrating that was not dealt with as matter of... More

Love this place. Stayed here with my 12 yo son for four nights so the two of us could tour Boston together. Location is excellent in the heart of downtown and near historical sights, the hotel was beautiful, the staff helpful and friendly, the food very good, and we took full advantage of their complimentary car service. Loved it!

We really enjoyed our stay! One of the best locations in Boston. Close to most of Boston's historical sites. The hotel restaurant was pricey but served the best meal we had. The first room was small but we were moved to a bigger and better room when our fireplace didn't work. Nice exercise room. Small but then no one else... More

My husband and I stayed here one night when we came to Boston to go to a concert. We loved to location and proximity to the T, the common and great restaurants. The hotel also provides a car service if requested. Our room was clean and well stocked. We were on a lower level floor and did not have a... More

I always gravitate to boutique luxury hotels and one of the reasons I chose to stay at XV. The hotel property is beautiful and well appointed. The location couldn't be beat for anyone who is looking to be near amazing restaurants and shopping. The staff is outstanding. Most amazing for me was the fact that the first time in forever... More
