XV Beacon

Boston, USA

The hotel

This boutique hotel, originally built in 1903 boasts a Beaux Arts facade and art deco furnishings befitting to its evocative gas-lit street neighbourhood. XV Beacon combines the intimacy of a private residence with the service of a luxury hotel. Simply sophisticated, each floor leads to at most 7 bespoke guestrooms for an intimate feel. And old and new intermingle effortlessly: rooms feature modern rainforest showers and fireplaces, alongside traditional touches like fresh flowers and cashmere throws; the fine dining steakhouse Mooo…. hides a 4th-5th century Roman mosaic in its wine cellar; contemporary design details sit happily among original features like caged glass elevators, and its listing in the National Register of Historic Places; and modern luxuries like complimentary WiFi are set against that time-honoured ‘personal touch’, with a Concierge at your beck and call 24 hours a day.

XV Beacon is a beautiful luxury boutique hotel in one of the nicest parts of Boston. The staff are amazing. Everyone was so incredibly helpful and accommodating, and the concierge went way out of their way to make our visit even more special. The rooms are so very comfortable and inviting. This is our new go-to hotel for Boston visits.

Have been to this boutique hotel a number of times and it doesn't disappoint. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The decor of the rooms is more traditional with dark wood and marble bathrooms. While everything was clean and appeared new, it's not a modern decor. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and accommodating.
