This hotel is nice. The staff is pleasant and helpful and the service is excellent. The location is pretty good (although not as good as the Four Seasons Boston's location). However, the look and feel of the rooms was just not for me. I'd compare staying at XV Beacon to staying in an old but really nice, well-kept brownstone. The showers are weird/old fixtures, things generally look old, and the hotel doesn't have wireless internet access. To access the internet, I had to borrow an ethernet cord and even with that, I had trouble . . . in line with the excellent service, someone was there in 2 minutes to try (unsuccessfully) to fix it. The music system in the room is pretty cool - there are speakers in the ceilings all through the rooms, so you can really enjoy music while in your room.
