XVB really is the Best Hotel in the World.
It was an absolute pleasure to once again stay in this Boutique Hotel. It's an unforgettable experience that will leave you looking for excuses to return as quickly as possible!!
In my first review after the first stay at XVB two or so years ago I couldn't praise the Hotel & it's Staff enough. It was an incredible experience and one that lead to an immediate decision to return to XVB as soon as possible.
Staying on the 8th floor this time round the rooms were simply stunning and quite large in size! You get such a luxurious and 'homely' feel upon opening the main door and entering into this incredibly well laid out room.
Everything from the fireplace to the huge & amazingly comfortable bed to the very modern and well appointed Bathroom / Bath makes the overall experience one to be enjoyed!
It's also about the small things and finer touches. A personalised "Welcome Back" plate of Chocolate Strawberries was waiting upon my arrival!
** Hat's off to the team for that one!! Perfect.
(Try and get the corner room if possible as you will have a great view down Beacon Street looking towards Boston Common).
The two "Hotel Cars" are just the best to use as much as possible. Staying over the 2013 / 14 New Year period for 8 or so days needless to say, it was busy! We did want to go to a few places further from the Hotel and the ability to have this service available makes all the difference.
Mooo Restaurant is a fantastic part of XVB. The Quality of Food was always to the highest of standards and never left us hungry but did leave us wanting more!!
They have an amazing selection of Wine and the staff were terrific at recomendations
and really helped in putting together the perfect meal.
The Breakfast staff it must be noted were wonderful to deal with every morning for Breakfast aswell.
Well, saving the best until last, which is, the Staff at XVB.
This would have to be the best part of this Amazing Hotel.
All Staff, no matter which department they are from all go out of their way to say "Hi" or "Good Morning" etc and just go the extra step to ensure that you are being looked after. They are an incredible asset and really set XVB apart from the rest.
Amy was excellent throughout the confirmation / booking process of the 3 seperate rooms and ensured all was taken care of and just made the entire process easy.
As mentioned previously, a noteable mention to the Breakfast staff, Front Door personnel and Drivers who were wonderful.
Lastly, Jonathan (Concierge). Absolutely Brilliant.
I can't thank him enough for everything he did for my Family in ensuring our Holiday was made perfect. His attention to detail, local knowledge, excellent advice and just all-round friendly attitude is an absolute Win for XVB.
You simply can't go wrong with XVB as your Hotel choice when staying in Boston. Brilliant.
