Second stay at the XV Beacon. The first stay, this Christmas, was fabulous. This one was nice, but not as good. We seem to have gotten a room that was subpar, despite paying a high price. Our room (1004) had the worst mattress I've had in years of being on the road 40% of the time. Room had no clock... More

Been coming to XV Beacon for years, in all seasons, but never before for an event and not only was everything up to its usual interstellar standards but even beyond my expectations. I particularly appreciate the intimate feel the hotel offered for our event of 40-odd guests. Service was smooth and nonintrusive and I really felt in my bones that... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel couple of nights ago, prior to undergoing surgery at Mass General Hospital. It was a wonderful stay! We had an upgraded room with a fireplace and soaking tub. The room was quiet cozy and extremely comfortable. We also had room service for dinner and breakfast. The food was very good. I would... More

From the minute we walked into the front door of XV Beacon we knew it was going to be a great stay. We couldn't be happier with the outstanding service we were provided with. The reception desk was friendly and courteous. The valets wouldn't let us lift a finger with our bags and even threw out my garbage I was... More

We had the most wonderful stay at XV Beacon. We couldn't have asked for better, personalized service - from the concierges, room service, restaurant, doormen, drivers and everyone else we encountered. Everyone was always happy to accommodate our requests and more. The concierges were very knowledgeable and had great suggestions for activities and restaurants. We were lucky to have a... More

XV Beacon is a great hotel - room 507 was a good size, although the the bathroom was very small and the shower and tub were one unit. The location is excellent and the staff coudn't be more helpful. Bar was fabulous and the breakfast we had was delicious. Car will take you anywhere within 2 miles of the hotels... More

We really enjoyed this hotel! From the fireplace in the room to the staff! Everyone welcomed us back after a day of touring, the concierge was very helpful making reservations for us and recommending sites and tours. The room was comfy, the roll-away bed was too! Loved the fireplace in the room!

Convenient location in Beacon Hill allowed for easy foot travel to Back Bay, the Financial District and the South End. Beautiful and modern accommodations peppered with features charmingly reminiscent of the Boston of old. Even though this was a trip to visit old friends and stomping grounds, I found myself scheduling time to enjoy my room.

I never ever sign up on a website to write a review or give my opinions on a hotel we have stayed at, however XV Beacon deserves one! From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff, from the door man, to the front desk staff, concierge, housekeeping, to the free car service around town were simply amazing! The room was... More

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.
