Can't beat the location of this small "boutique" hotel just steps from the Shaw Memorial, Massachusetts State House, and Freedom Trail. However, during our stay, the hotel was filled with businessmen not tourists. The hotel's free limo service was most appreciated (tho' pre-book the limo with the concierge a.s.a.p. to ensure it's available!) Front-desk (most notably Dustin Leighton) made our... More

We came to Boston unexpectedly to visit a friend in the hospital. It was a huge weekend in Boston between sporting events, the high tourist season, etc. A family member of the friend in hospital booked us a room at XV Beacon. The room (#1001) was cramped and poorly laid out. Outlets were hard to reach, very inconveniently located, and... More

15 Beacon is an immaculate, well-appointed modern boutique hotel. The staff is very professional and helpful. The rooms are large and boast up to date technology for iPhones and bluray needs. Your music can even be pumped into the bathroom if you like. The self-igniting fire place is a nice touch and can be made into a romantic centerpiece. The... More

In an excellent location perched on the hill overlooking the common - it was a beautiful neighbourhood showcasing the historical significance and understated grandeur of this great city. We stayed with our 2 boys 4 nights in a corner suite on the 8th floor. Tastefully decorated with quality furnishings - it felt like your own home once inside. The rroms... More

The XV Beacon is a perfectly located, well appointed, beauty of a hotel. I have stayed in a variety of Boston's great hotels but I think I have found my favorite. The staff are superb; they are well educated, friendly, and offer you very personalized service. For example, my teenage son wanted to play basketball at the nearest, outdoor, public... More

I really would love to give this hotel a 5/5; however, there were a few small things out of place for me. I was traveling on business and am in the industry so tend to notice these things more than most. Overall my stay was great! Very attentive and welcoming staff. The gentlemen who checked me in was really nice... More

Despite living in the neighborhood, decided to splurge on a little "stay-cation" last year with my girlfriend. The hotel is in an excellent location downtown. Rooms are nicely appointed and the staff was very friendly and helpful and had no problem changing my room after I wasn't thrilled with the layout of the first one. A nice sitting area with... More

We decided to stay here for our 3 day trip to Boston & we were happy we did. The staff was extremely friendly & attentive. They were helpful with making recommendations for dinners and things to see. The complimentary town car service is great...Paul did an awesome job taking us to & from Fenway Park. The hotel is conveniently located... More

We absolutely loved our stay here. We debated between the Ritz, Four Season, and the Taj. More and more we really prefer the more personalized service of boutique hotels. I read TripAdvisor reviews on XV Beacon and took a chance. We will definitely be back! Everything was wonderful. The food at Mooo was outstanding. The room was very spacious, modern,... More

I recently stayed at XV Beacon for a business trip. It was my second stay. The first stay was perfectly fine except the room was a bit small and I didn't like the location of the desk in the room. I get a fair amount of work done before my meetings in the AM. However, I stayed in room 407... More
