XV Beacon was a good experience. The staff are welcoming, the location is great and the rooms well appointed. We had a room on the ninth floor - large but cosy, well designed, great amenities and a thoughtful welcome plate of chocolate covered strawberries. The adjoining restaurant, Mooo, served a good breakfast (didn't try it for dinner) - albeit pricey. My criticisms of XV Beacon? Two things: first, there is no real public space to relax, read or have a glass of wine - it's your room or nothing. The lobby is quite cramped, and the roof terrace was understandably closed in April. Second, there doesn't seem to be any sort of service elevator, which is a minor thing - but often meant you'd be sharing the elevator with a room service or luggage trolley. Otherwise, this is a good city hotel that is a nice alternative to the major chains.
