Wonderful overnight stay. We needed a mini-vacation and XV Beacon did a wonderful job from the moment we pulled up at valet until we departed. Prompt room service, a Lexus transport to/from dinner, and nice greetings throughout our stay. We did not want to leave! I had stayed here 20 years ago when it first opened and they have not missed a step at all.

This gem is located steps from the Boston Common and from the moment we arrived we were treated to service above and beyond our expectations. Doormen await to assist with our luggage and car park. The front desk employees could not have been nicer in the most genuine way, authentic and not forced. Our room was beautiful as always and as clean and comfortable as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. From the Italian tiled rain forrest shower to the espresso machine and a lovely warm bed, we couldn't have asked for more! An exceptional dining room awaited us and though a busy Friday night the attention to detailed service was equaled by outstanding food at the restaurant Mooo, appetizers, entrees, and desert were over the top. An elegant dining room that was clearly popular, this was the crowning jewel of our stay. We can't recommend XV Beacon any more for the discerning visitors to the greatest city in the world!

To keep it brief we had high expectations of this highly rated hotel. For some reason upon arrival, the valet was not very kind. It didn’t make sense. But once we came inside and met the rest of the staff at all, began to take form. we immediately called our booking agent and canceled the room due to the lack of greetings, or any type of welcoming gesture by the hotel staff. There are so many great hotels nearby. Look elsewhere

Solid hotel in a great location to see the city of Boston. This was a quieter hotel with the boutique vibe for sure. The room was very nice and clean and plenty of room for a few nights. As this this is a moderately priced hotel i think it delivers quite well for the cost. I will say that i did not love the food from room service, but that could just be personal preference. Would i stay again? Probably not, but that is just because I don’t think there was anything exceptional about the place.

The XV Beacon Hotel is perched atop Boston's Beacon Hill just steps from the bustling Financial District and the Massachusetts State House. I appreciated the exquisite vibe portrayed by the hotel's Beaux-Arts facade, chic decor, original cage elevators, grand marble staircase, dark-stained woods, crimson accents and antique furniture. High end details abound in my spacious Beacon Hill Studio accommodations with cozy love seat parked in front of the fireplace dispersing a distinct residential feel. Curated art pieces with a color palette of taupe, cream & espresso creates a classic ambience. The bath was marbleized and outfitted with a rainforest shower & whirlpool tub combo. Mooo... is such a cool name for their steakhouse restaurant (why not) serving items like grass fed beef, noteworthy salads & desserts and inviting cocktails as well as an award winning wine list. The menu reveals meaty items ranging from Japanese Wagyu Sirloin to Omaha Prime Ribeye. For myself, I put together a trio of food-fare in the form of Wild Mushroom Soup, Bone Marrow and Prime Sirloin Carpaccio.....and I didn't pass on a dessert of Creme Brulee,,,,this culinary collage was a jackpot of flavors. Mooo... is open 7 days a week for all dayparts. So, if you relish an exquisite mix of architecture, history, all the creature comforts and top-notch service....................then try the ...............XV Beacon................a luxury boutique beauty.

XV Beacon is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in in Boston. The hospitality is non-stop from the check in process throughout your stay. We used the concierge suggestions to guide us during our stay. The room we stayed in was so clean, well designed, and very spacious. We would have been happy holing up in the hotel all night. I would definitely stay here again. The staff and level of service are a sure reason to visit this perfectly located hotel!

We stayed four nights at this hotel and, overall, enjoyed the experience. It's well situated, the city being easily accessible on foot. A $17 taxi ride from the airport followed by great reception and booking in. Our room on the fifth floor was at the back of the hotel.......garbage collection early morning below us was very loud; probably better to have a side or front room. The room itself was spacious and well appointed. Light switches were a puzzle but plenty of charge sockets, good TV and a gas fire completed the offer. Bed large and comfortable and the bathroom had a great shower. The room was slightly tired, wooden surfaces needed re-varnishing and the tile grout needed a clean. Outstanding elements of this stay were the staff...a special call out for Juan from Columbia who served us breakfast (a bit pricey but very nice), but everyone was helpful and supportive. The innovation of a hotel car which took us to a number of destinations was also greatly appreciated. All in all I would recommend this hotel.

Our first trip to Boston did not disappoint! XV Beacon is an absolutely perfect location with impeccable amenities and a staff who is knowledgeable and attentive. The charming rooms and lovely fireplace are cozy and comfortable. We loved the central location to all our activities, and the lovely lobby area provided iced tea and warm cider during the day. The entire staff, including the hotel drivers, went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

From the moment we arrived to our departure the customer service was superb, The hotel is quaint and charming. A real through back to another era but with modern amenities in every room. What a delight to finally have room service, turn down service and genuine hospitality back! More hotels could learn a lesson from the staff here. They were all amazing. What a treat to have a fabulous steakhouse Mooo attached to this hotel. We dined there one evening to celebrate my husband’s birthday and it could not have been better. Thank you to all! Also, it’s a nice addition to have a car service to transport guests around town. We used this service twice and it worked perfectly. Our driver was very knowledgeable and so pleasant.

My wife and I were recent visitors to XV Beacon along with our dog. The staff was wonderful with her and helped us get our bags unloaded and up to our room. They recommended a pet sitter and we’re very pleasant to work with. The room was very clean and service was excellent. In addition the offered car service taking us around the downtown area was a great perk. Our driver, Grazi, was so friendly and offered advice on things to see around town. We will not consider staying elsewhere when we return to Boston.
