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.

We spent Labor Day weekend at XV Beacon. It is a lovely boutique hotel with a friendly and professional staff. Great location near Boston Common. We brought our dog with us as they are very pet friendly. Hotel provided a dog bed, bowls and special treats! We plan to stay again soon, as it is our new favorite hotel in Boston!

I have stayed at XV Beacon twice and both times my stay has been exceptional. The hotel is beautiful and unique, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I had a group stay for a business meeting and they all raved about what a great experience they had. I can't wait to go back!

This property is absolutely amazing. From the front desk to the room, no detail is overlooked. Upon arrival, the front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Check in was quick. Our room was exceptionally clean. We had a suite, but can’t remember the name. The Concierge member (I wish I could remember his name and the front desk staff, too!) was amazing and helped us find great places to eat as well as Halloween parties happening in the area. The reservations may seem expensive but you truly get what you pay for. The best hotel in Boston. Hands down. Thank y’all for everything! Read less

I have stayed at the Beacon twice, the second time with a Business group. The hotel is beautiful and unique, the rooms are lovely with gas fireplaces in every room, and the staff is so friendly. I love the location too. I can't wait to go back!
