“Excellent - hands down.”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

The location is terrific. We walked to the North End in ten minutes - and plenty of stuff is right near by.

Front desk staff is on point - very courteous and accommodating. The room was great (fireplace was a nice touch) and the bed was great. Having stayed in this area before at other hotels, I wasn't expecting much quiet - but I didn't hear a thing at night.

I'll definitely be back.

We arrived for a birthday weekend and were greeted by the friendliest valet and receptionist we've encountered in quiet some time. The rooms were on the smaller side, but every square inch was functional and it didn't feel as though we were in a typical boutique hotel. Great shower, bed and linens.
They have a house car to use at no charge, so make sure you reserve it upon check in for dinner or shopping. (tip well)
Rooftop has a fitness center and outdoor hot tub.....nice touch.
This is our new once a month get-a-way:)

XV Beacon very quickly became our new favorite Boston hotel. The location is fantastic. The rooms are very nice - we dont usually go for modern decor but XV Beacon is very well done. Staff is quite friendly too.
If the weather is nice there is a quiet roof deck too! Amazing views of the surrounding area. Get a drink from the bar & enjoy!!

XV Beacon is conveniently located on Beacon Street north of Boston Commons. It is walking distance to Quincy Market, the harbor, the commons and the shopping district. There is also an SUV and a sedan at your disposal for driving to nearby restaurants, the red sox game, and the airport. The Moo restaurant is located next to the lobby and has the most incredible breakfast ever! The bacon side dish comes with almost a pound of crispy bacon. The frittata covers an entire plate and was way more than I could eat. The eggs benedict are the best. The wait staff could not be more friendly and helpful. There is a hot tub on the roof as well as a nice spot for lounging. The rooms are comfortable, although I would prefer more lighting. The hotel is quiet on the weekends but the noise of traffic and garbage pick-up seeps through the windows on the weekdays. Overall a very pleasant hotel.

Great hotel situated in the heart of Boston. The staff were very friendly and helpful and had a great double room on the 8th floor. Rooms were well equipped and an amazing shower. Great bar in the restaurant and breakfasts are incredible, recommend the Moooo omelette. The rooftop terrace is lovely but only downside is the noise from the generators. Would recommend and go back if in Boston again.

This is a perfect hotel
In every way. From the moment they receive your car everybody is nice and very efficient. From there on the experience just gets better and better. The rooms are large, with the best beds, pillows and sheets. The shower is a morning treat. And the restaurant has amazing food and the best service. Loved every minute of my stay
