Located in Boston's historic Beacon Hill neighborhood, this landmark building is grand and sophisticated. Modern amenities and furnishings await you. I stayed in one of the hotel's executive classic rooms (#903) that had a gas fireplace and a cozy cashmere throw that was close by. The decor of cream and taupe colors created a serene and luxurious environment. Service was... More

This hotel was recently chosen by Travel and Leisure magazine as one of the best hotels in the country and I agree. The entire hotel is spotless and in excellent condition. The staff is attentive and always there when you needed them. We had dinner and brunch at Mooo and had a great time. We traveled for my wife's birthday... More

The rooms are spacious and well designed. The staff is friendly, very knowledgeable and made it such a pleasure to stay. Definitely a 10/10 for convenience and experience. We moved from a queen room to a king mid- stay and both were very comfortable with music playing, fireplace, large windows to enjoy the view and bath salts available after all... More

On arrival, my husband and I were disappointed to find that street construction was going on directly in front of XV. The staff were extremely accommodating to make this inconvenience minimal. The street was blocked off so we called the hotel for suggestions. The concierge provided step-by-step directions on how to loop around the one-way filled Beacon Hill maze. A... More

Prior to my trip, I struggled to find hotel I liked in Boston. Many of the higher end options (Four Seasons, Mandarin, etc.) seemed due for a refurb, and nothing was really appealing to me. I then came across XV Beacon, and it seemed like a reasonable option so I took the plunge. They made a very good first impression,... More

This was our first trip to XV Beacon. The staff are very friendly and extremely accommodating. They upgraded our room and it was terrific.

I live 20 minutes outside Boston but it was my birthday so I wanted to stay in the city for the weekend with my husband and XV Beacon was my choice. It's a great boutique hotel in an area of Boston called Beacon Hill which is very charming. It's just across from the park and many other tourist attractions. Everything... More

We had stays at this superb hotel both at the beginning and end of a motoring tour around New England in the fall. From the initial welcome to our final goodbye, the standard of service delivered by the hotel team was impeccable.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
