XV Beacon Hotel reigns over Boston's historic Beacon Hill neighborhood in its turn-of-the-century landmark Beaux Arts building. The modern furnishings counterbalanced by a grand staircase of marble, mahogany paneling and original caged-glass elevator reflect how past lives transform into the present. The 63-room luxury boutique hotel, recognized for peerless personal service, sophisticated interiors and luxurious custom amenities, distinguishes itself with its sense of heritage, peacefulness of home and utmost discretion.

Neighborhood
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.

The good bits. Hotel is in a very good position by Boston common and easy to walk to all the sights, restaurants and bars. The staff were amazing. I had been in contact with the concierge a fair few times prior to our arrival. They booked a hire car for us which was brought to

My Wife and I stayed at XV Beacon recently and would recommend this hotel to anyone. Check In was a breeze and we were up in our room in no time. We stayed in a Beacon Hill Studio which was plenty big enough for the two of us even when ordering room service. I had mentioned

I have stayed three times over period of 4 months each time with a different room type. Two out of three visits one of the two lifts was not working. The Classic room is quite small. I've written before the layout makes it smaller than the stated space. Last time I ordered room

"Lower floors overlooking the street will have some noise starting quite early, but it wasn't too bad"
"Each room has it's own EXTRAORDINARY Experience"
"I prefer the higher rooms with more light and away from the lift"
"Opt for the larger rooms at the front of the hotel."
"Rooms ending in 01; 03; 05; 07 (and maybe 09) don't have any view at all."
