Tucked away at the top of Beacon Hill, surrounded by tiny streets and buildings, the Hotel Beacon XV is a gem. It's a historic building, kept in great shape - the lobby is small, but charming, and the elevator is a real classic. The staff is excellent - accommodating, discrete, helpful, polite. I was traveling alone, and made to feel totally welcome both in the hotel and in the restaurant. My room wasn't grand, but had everything i needed, great linens, beautiful bathroom, desk with good lighting, mini- bar (only used the ice bucket, but ice arrived promptly when i called) and a good reading chair. The view was non existent, but the room was so comfortable it didn't matter. Great artwork and a bowl of fresh green apples in the hall. I used my Am Ex platinum card, which gave me an upgrade (didn't happen, they were booked - Celtics were in town) and a credit for dinner and breakfast. Moo, their restaurant, was great. Had a terrific lunch of arugula salad, lobster roll and 2 glasses of wine which pretty much burned thru my $85 dinner credit, but that's ok - it was delicious! Room service breakfast the next day was just as good - fresh made pastries, not the kind frozen or from a box. Fresh fruit, coffee, juice and delivered exactly on time. Concierge was helpful in making arrangements, and the town car was a treat to take me to my meeting. All in all an excellent stay.
