What a beautiful hotel. Our stay was excellent. The room with the fireplace was stunning. The bathroom was beautifully appointed . We will definitely return . The location is discrete in a very elegant part of town, yet a walk from parks and town.

The in-room fireplace made my trip so cozy! Nothing like coming in from the cold New England weather to my fireplace on and surprise cookies and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for me when I got back to the room!

Ran away from home after burying my bff of over 30 years. She passed away from breast cancer and I need to find some quiet in a luxurious place that would take care of me. I found great solace and peace at the XV. They ordered room service for me, brought me things I didn't know I needed - warm...

This is a beautiful hotel that has the nicest rooms and best staff of almost any place we have ever stayed. Our room was on the 4th floor facing the street which gave us a little more street noise than we would have liked, but that is the only demerit. The room itself and the hall were very quiet. The...

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful small botique hotel on Beacon Street. The atmosphere was quiet and low key, just the way I like it. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The dining experience was great, the food was excellent and service great. They have a complementary car service available to all guest. We took full advantage...

The hotel has great historic character with large rooms and extremely helpful staff. The location is great- walkable to lots of restaurants & shops plus Boston Common. Traffic is a bit of a nightmare although there was construction while we were there. Great for business travel if you're looking for something outside of the big hotels in the area. That...

My boyfriend and I stayed here last night and I had to write a review immediately after we left because it was the best experience at a hotel that we have ever had. From the moment we walked in the door, the service was impeccable. Daniel went above and beyond- offering us a complimentary car service if we wanted to...

Just a quick update since my last review - our stay this time was in better. The suites are amazing - love the big space, gas fireplace, bathtub, large closet area off the bathroom and comfy bed with fretted linens. But it's the service that really stands out - my husband and i took advantage of the lexus rides around...

Having stayed at all of the nicest hotels in Boston, I go out of my way to stay at XV Beacon. The rooms are gracious, luxuriant, and attractive. Since I have always stayed here when it is cold in Boston, I love the cashmere throws, fireplace, and half bottles of nice Bordeaux. If you are traveling on business, like me,...

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
