Having stayed at all of the nicest hotels in Boston, I go out of my way to stay at XV Beacon. The rooms are gracious, luxuriant, and attractive. Since I have always stayed here when it is cold in Boston, I love the cashmere throws, fireplace, and half bottles of nice Bordeaux. If you are traveling on business, like me,...

Every Christmas my family and I stay at XV Beacon for a wonderful holiday treat. Each visit is as perfect as the last- handsome, luxurious rooms, delicious food, ideal location- this is our most beloved annual tradition and can't imagine staying anywhere else.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights over the Christmas holiday and found it to be wonderful. We are very fussy travelers and this hotel was charming, with beautiful rooms and a great restaurant named "Moo." I wish the gym were larger, but beyond that it was excellent. The staff was extremely helpful in every way.

Our family enjoyed our visit to XV Beacon. We were traveling with our daughter's Yorkie pup and the hotel was perfect! Not only were the amenities fantastic for humans but pups also. For those of you who are Lexus owners, there is free valet parking which is huge in Boston! This is our family's new favorite hotel when we visit...

Ok, so why aren't there more than five circles that I can fill in??! This hotel is clearly the cream of the crop for places to stay. I can't think of one thing I saw or experienced that made me walk away imagining it in a different way. Clearly this hotel is well - run: The GM is a pure...

We had Thanksgiving dinner in this hotel and they catered the whole thing, right down to the big Turkey. We had less than 20 people, and this includes small children, and we all fit comfortable in the suite that we had. Overall, a great Thanksgiving this year. I have been describing it to finds and coworkers as very low-key.

I do love this hotel and was thrilled when my husband surprised me with a stay for a few nights after our wedding. The in-room fireplace is really quite perfect. The staff is wonderful and super helpful. Such a relaxing place to stay. We stayed in a studio room, which was great. My only two issues would be that our...

We had a great stay at the XV Beacon. It is close to the North End, Government Center and the Boston Common. The people were very friendly and helpful. Small, with only 7 rooms on a floor, the hotel itself was a nice departure from the big chains. In life, it is true that you often get what you pay...

Located in Boston's historic Beacon Hill neighborhood, this landmark building is grand and sophisticated. Modern amenities and furnishings await you. I stayed in one of the hotel's executive classic rooms (#903) that had a gas fireplace and a cozy cashmere throw that was close by. The decor of cream and taupe colors created a serene and luxurious environment. Service was...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
