We were in Boston for sightseeing and had elected to stay at XV Beacon based on other reviews. We were not disappointed (except for the view from the room).
The room was very nicely finished with a four poster queen-sized bed, HDTV and a fireplace--which turned out to be a great amenity since it was cool and wet in Boston on the day we arrived. While the room was very nice, the two things that make this hotel stand out are the location (one block from Boston Commons and the Freedom Trail), but more importantly, the people. From the doorman who actually seemed happy to see you and eager to help, to the concierge who always had a map and a suggestion, to the bartender who can make some great martini's and seemingly keep 3 conversations going at the same time--all were exceptional! We will definitely go back.
