“Best Hotel in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2005

XV Beacon is by far the classiest hotel in Boston. My husband and I spent our anniversary there this past weekend. Our room was sleek and sophisticated with fireplace and four poster bed. There was champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries in our room upon arrival. What a nice touch and wonderful surprise. The rainforest shower is amazing. You'll end up staying in the shower for a long, long time. The service is first-class and their restaurant, the Federalist, is topnotch. We ended up eating dinner, having late night snacks and then breakfast there. Nice atmosphere, great food and impeccable service. We can't wait to go back.
