Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

We decided to stay here for our 3 day trip to Boston & we were happy we did. The staff was extremely friendly & attentive. They were helpful with making recommendations for dinners and things to see. The complimentary town car service is great...Paul did an awesome job taking us to & from Fenway Park. The hotel is conveniently located near many attractions & public transportation. The rooms are spacious. The bathroom was beautiful decorated. There is a small gym & jacuzzi as well as a beautiful roof top deck with comfortable lounge chairs & other seating. We were the only ones on the roof top deck. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Also make sure you take advantage of the concierge services. They did a fabulous job as well.

Stayed: July 2014

We absolutely loved our stay here. We debated between the Ritz, Four Season, and the Taj. More and more we really prefer the more personalized service of boutique hotels. I read TripAdvisor reviews on XV Beacon and took a chance. We will definitely be back! Everything was wonderful. The food at Mooo was outstanding. The room was very spacious, modern, and very clean. Housekeeping was perfect with twice daily service. The concierges were so helpful, arranging dinners, Red Sox games, hair appointments, and flight details. Probably one of the best amenities is the Lexus courtesy car the hotel provides to shuttle you back and forth to locations. Sure beats hot taxis! All this and a fabulous location within walking distance of most sites make this a winner for us!

I recently stayed at XV Beacon for a business trip. It was my second stay. The first stay was perfectly fine except the room was a bit small and I didn't like the location of the desk in the room. I get a fair amount of work done before my meetings in the AM. However, I stayed in room 407 last week and it was absolutely perfect. Good sized room and quiet. Overall level of service was great. Room service was timely and food was good. XV Beacon is likely to become my go to place to stay while in Boston.

This is one of our all-time favorite hotels! The welcome is warm and attentive. The concierge was knowledgeable and helpful with detail about each of her recommendations. We very much appreciated the ride in the comfortable hotel car to the pickup for our rental car as we were leaving Boston. The room was truly beautiful with marble tiled bathroom equipped with Turkish towels that were luxurious. Fixtures in the bathroom were of the highest quality and were unusually lovely. Linens on the bed were pristine and comfortable. Every detail was perfect in the room and was maintained by a wonderful housekeeping staff. We were vacationing in Boston so the location by the Boston Common couldn't have been more convenient. We'd love to return to Boston to stay at XV Beacon!

I love service and location. I don't need 300 plus rooms of glitz with crowded lobbies so I'm big on Boutique Hotels. Unless you're in Boston to shop, the XV Beacon has the best location in the city. Everything is within walking distance and if you feel like being lazy, the T is a block away. The rooms are contemporary yet very practical and comfortable. My family of 5 (2 adults and 3 younger kids) fell in love with Olivia. She's a Concierge at the Beacon whose suggestions always came through. I would not stay anywhere else but here. One of the best hotel stays I've had.

From start to finish our stay at xv beacon was brilliant. We advised the hotel that we were coming to celebrate a birthday and anniversary and they went out of their way to make our stay very memorable. The room was great with an amzing selection in the mini bar. The extras such as the bath salt menu and the hand delivered goodie plate in arrival give this hotel that extra special touch. The staff were extremeley helpful and the drivers were friendly and efficient. We were sad we couldnt stay for longer and will definitely return in our next trip to Boston. Thank you xv beacon for an amzing time.

The majority of rooms are small but very workable. The room is complete with min-bar and fireplace. The service (front desk, concierge and doormen) was super. The hotel also has several limos which, if you book in advance, will drop you off at no charge to a location of your choice (within reasonable limits). Email notifications are timely and you may respond with your requests before your arrival.


Would I stay there again? Yes

Room Tip: Recommend that you request a room as high up as you can get as the hotel has one noisy air condition...
