      My best friend got married yesterday and the hotel, staff, and views of the city were all amazing. As an old hotel/building, it is in beautiful shape with lots of character but with a modern spin. The staff were so accommodating and wonderful to work with. The views. Oh the views. Not the best of the city from a hotel, but for the location and height of building you couldn't ask for better.

      I hope when it's my turn to marry, I will be as lucky to have an experience like this one.

      Anniversary Treat

      from

      Just came back from a quick getaway. There is no comparison to this hotel The service was impecable. The room beautiful. I can't wait to go back. The restaurant was amazing as well.

      Nice hotel but a bit disappointing

      from

      I had heard a lot of the hotel before i went, so my expectations were very high. It was definitely an upscale hotel, but i was a disappointed because i found the rooms a bit dark and depressing. Excellent service though - your choice of newspaper in the morning, complimentary overnight shoe polish.

      Fantastic stay

      from

      Stayed here 5th to 11th March, and loved every minute. I travel a lot on business and I can assure you XV Beacon is first rate.

      The service was superb, and the food in the Fedralist restaurant was fabulous. The rooms are beautifully decorated, although a little small for US standrads. They are dark, and can become a touch gloomy on bleak days. Shower was great, although the plasma TV in the bathroom is a little gimicky.

      Location is perfect, one block from State House, and Boston Common. The view from our room though was non-existant, just the next door office block wall. This must apply to all rooms unless your on the front. The limo service is excellent.

      Great hotel

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the XV beacon recently and had a wonderful time. The service was tremendous. Make sure you ask to use the hotel Valet Car Service (for Free!!). They have two black mercedes which can wisk you away to dinner and pick you up when you are done. Very nice touch!!While the prices are high, the service is great. If you are looking to splurge, this is the place...

      Home Away From Home

      from

      It's about the service!! Went to Boston last summer on business and took the family. Both hotel and restaurant staff were very accommodating and were especially attentive to our nine year old. The rooms were great and the restaurant & wine cellar are not to be missed.

      The rare hotel that makes you feel at home rather than merely a patron.

      My spouse wants to go back for a week next year. I agree.

      Overpriced indeed!!!

      from

      I agree with "overpriced" but I'd hasten to add that my recent stay in a jr suite, supposedly one of their premier rooms, was one that also put poor housekeeping on display. The place was dirty; visibly so despite the muted, dirt-hiding colourscheme. The walls are also quite thin, a factor if you mind hearing the neighbour's TV all night as I did. I much prefer small hotels to big ones but I left this place for the Four Seasons after two nights. There I found a properly clean room and the peace and quiet I like at night. I won't be coming back.

      Excellent boutique

      from

      Excellent service, design aesthetic, and location. Have visited Boston many times on business and prefer Beacon hands down to Four Seasons.

      Great car service. JR

      A Great Hotel

      from

      XV Beacon is just a wonderful hotel. The staff is incredibly friendly, competent and helpful. The amenities (free high speed internet, in-room stereo, fireplace, complimentary Mercedes car service, etc.) are unbeatable. And the location right near the Boston Common is convenient for both business and leisure travellers. XV Beacon is probably my favorite place to stay - anywhere - right now.

      Classy boutique hotel

      from

      Beautiful small hotel. The rooms are smallish but wonderfully appointed and the staff is very professional and friendly. Rates are definately at the high end but overall it is a superb,luxury place to stay.

      Amazing and Fabulous

      from

      This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. The room was gorgeousand the staff was so attentive, friendly, kind, accomadating. They even have a complimentary mercedes to drive you to town and pick you up. I must say that the next time I go to Boston, there is no question about where I will stay. We had a wonderful weekend!!!

      Last night I celebrated the union of my best friend and her now husband. These two people have been so good to me and have allowed me to finish out my time in this city on a good note. As I roll back into the city after staying with another good friend, who cannot go without mentioning, I see the cityscape and I fall back in love with this city. …

      ... too. I would prefer a more upscale “gourmet” Thai restaurant that concentrates more on flavor and less on volume. Does anyone have a “favorite” to recommend?

      And Legal Seafood? I ate there a few times and it was mediocre to worse than that each time. I’d have to give it a 2 (for effort) on a 5 star scale. Skip it.

We visited Salem Maritime National Historic Site to see the Friendship, a replica of 171 ft 3 masted schooner built in 1797. She's fully operational visiting ports along the coast for events & festivals.

      Visiting Salam in October is when all the crazy people come to visit! They surely hype up the witch history & all the businesses ...

      Well, here we are in Boston. We arrived this morning at about 8:00 am in beautiful sunrise. It is another blue sky day, and we are soon to get off and stroll around Boston. Boston is not large and is a very walkable city.

      Four hours later, I'm tired of walking on Newbury St, through the Boston Commons and public gardens, the day is eautiful and ...

      ... is not a circular trail so we had to retrace our steps in order to begin the northern part of the walk. We passed through the Italian quarter, which is massive in contrast to that of New York, and our first stop was Paul Revere's house which was originally built in 1677 and is in a wonderful state of repair. He and his family lived there with 16 kids, at one time or another, during the latter part of 1770's where he practised his ...
