I can't think of a better location than XV Beacon - lobby is small but welcoming, service amazing and friendly, we LOVED the old fashioned elevators and the apples/oranges available on each floor. Our room was very quaint with a king size bed, pull out coach, gas fireplace (easy to switch on), nightly choice of bath salts, big fluffy bath towels with towel warmer, awesome rain shower (don't love the plastic half way door), cool bathroom and great sound system that we enjoyed playing in our suite. Free internet was a plus - gym is TINY but you have the choice to pay $15 to use the Boston Sports Club. A short list of things that kept us from giving it 5 stars: no free water bottles (most NYC hotels now include these), no high end bath products (I mean, XV shampoo - it could be anything), small bathroom, super basic gym, smallish rooms, scaffolding all over blocking the views (hence lack of light entering the rooms). If you compare to some of the top boutique hotels in NYC, it might lose 1 star, but we would certainly stay here again and enjoyed the warm atmosphere, great service, hopping bar and comfie room.
