Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2014

This is the hands down the best hotel we've stayed in. Between the staff, the location, the room, all of it. If we could rate it 6 stars, we would. When our stay ended I didn't want to go home. We will 100% return on our next trip to Boston.

Room Tip: amazing location, walking distance from everything.

Immaculate Boutique Hotel. Our room was comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel could not be better. Close to restaurants,bars,park, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks,Walgreens...just perfect. The staff was helpful. Small workout room- with just the basics to get in a good workout.I have to say the best perk of all was the driver service, which is complimentary. Our drivers Paul & Mark were not only kind, but very knowledgeable about the city and had great recommendations.Our first visit to Boston, and next time we will stay at XV Beacon again- it was that good!

We stayed at XV Beacon recently for our 20th wedding anniversary. The room was gorgeous: king bed, sitting area, fireplace and a large bathroom. We booked in-room massages through the concierge (shout out to Jonathan who was so friendly and helpful) and they were the best massages we ever had (ask for Lauren S. and Nanda). Location is great, decor is beautiful, service is excellent. A truly memorable stay. Thank you and we'll be back again.

The hotel was very easy to locate, and every staff member was very attentive and extremely helpful. the décor was so warming and cozy-I didn't want to leave! I will definitely be back! I brought my mother to visit my brother who has relocated to Boston from Florida-the Boston bug has definitely bitten me and I may be moving soon also!

We loved staying at XV Beacon for several reasons. Without exception the staff was exceptionally professional and focused on providing the best possible service. Celebrating our 49 anniversary, the provided a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Every day a fresh bowl of Red Delicious Apples were readily available. Our room was quiet and clean with a wonderful shower. The building is naturally old as it is in the center of historic Boston which I am guessing contributed to an intermittent oder coming from the bathroom. Closing the door solved the problem so I didn't mention it until we departed. In spite of that minor issue, XV Beacon was our favorite hotel among the six we stayed on our last trip. If we were to stay in Boston again, we would chose XV Beacon!

We chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews for our weekend trip to Boston. The location was fabulous, walking distance to parks, Newbury St and to the waterfront. Many top rated restaurants a short walk away. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the rooms were charming and clean.
We would definitely stay at this hotel next time in Boston.

This hotel was truly luxurious. It's location is great for walking around outside- lots of shops and restaurants and pretty things to look at. Our room was incredible-- beautifully decorated in ivory, dark grays and black. Bed was incredibly comfortable and sheets/towels were perfect. Bathroom was also wonderful and it was so quiet in the room. The staff was sweet and helped us with a ride to dinner as well as an incredible slice of chocolate cake delivered to the room because it was my birthday. Highly recommend this place!
