This boutique hotel is well located for central Boston. The room was well furnished and had a working gas fire, which was especially welcome in the cold weather. The concierge was really helpful in booking the restaurants that we had selected and even arrange their car to take us there. I would certainly return here.

I had a brilliant stay from March 4-8 at XV Beacon from my quiet room with fireplace to the incredibly helpful staff. The concierge service offered to help unasked and couldn't have been more useful, patient, knowledgeable, and kind. Bravo for each of the 2 concierges who helped with NO expectation of gratuity…just because that's what they do. Nice when... More

Absolutely fantastic hotel experience from the moment we walked in the door. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Boston area. The room was perfectly appointed, extremely clean, and everyone on the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful stay. The restaurant on property is superb. We ate every meal there our entire... More

I stayed there last week, and I loved it. The staff were great, and I had an awesome fireplace in my room. LOVED IT! I discover it via Founderscard, it is very close to the financial district and nice restaurants near by.

loved everything about this hotel and their bar ....rooms not that big but of a high quality ... Recommend as the location is excellent and you'll get a far more personalized feel and service than at any of the larger hotel chains.

First, I'd like to mention that I'm a long time user of TripAdvisor. I use it to make every hotel decision I make and I tend to rely on it for vetting restaurants as well. It's been on my to-do list for some time to become a more active member and start positing my own reviews. This one seems especially... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 15 Beacon last Saturday night. We came into Boston for our 20th Anniversary. This former mansion built in 1722 was converted to a Modern luxury boutique hotel. The decor is tasteful with modern but antique flare. Some of the furniture seems to fit the mansion in the 1700's. Each room has... More

We stayed at the XV Beacon Hotel last September whilst visiting a friend in Boston. Both of us travel on business in Europe quite regularly and are used to staying in some high quality hotels. The decor and facilities on offer at this hotel were what you'd expect from a premium establishment so that was a given; what bowled us... More

A fabulous little boutique hotel located very centrally in Boston. It was -8 centigrade when we were there so we didn't do too much walking around, but it appeared to be in a cute historic location close to the park, which we could see from our room. We were upgraded to a corner suite and I was very impressed by... More

Absolutely loved my short stay here. Basic queen room with fireplace had every imaginable comfort. Room service breakfast as good as I have had anywhere. Great shower, great TV and stereo set up with speakers in bathroom. Cannot wait to come back and stay longer!
