Certificate of Excellence
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.

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.

I spent a one-night stay at this hotel; I'm a travel executive and have stayed at many hotels, including all the 5-star hotel properties in Boston. This hotel was an absolute disaster from the moment I stepped inside. Anyone planning on visiting Boston should stay away from this

is the airport transportation a free service for pickup and drop off please? Thankyou, Andrea.
It is not complimentary. The 3 mile return trip to the airport from the hotel to the airport in our Lexus house car is $40. Our Lexus House Car is not permitted to pick up at the airport due to licensing however we can arrange a livery service for the transfer for $145. Taxis are also available.
