Thanks you's were expressed, some highlights shared and lots of photos.

Day 3 and all is well... After a very long first day of travelling I spent yesterday walking around this vibrant city. I wandered aimlessly most of the time just absorbing the noises and people, tall buildings and shops. I did make it to the contemporary art museum in the Fan Bay Area overlooking the sea. As most of you know I love to draw/paint but also like to peruse the quietness of museums and draw ...
Weather 100% rain but warm
Day started out rainy and continued to be rainy all day. It was warm though. So we put on our rain coats and enjoyed Bahston like all the other Bahstonians. Worked out great because we still had our second day on trolleys. Kept us dry and took us all over Boston.
We had some interesting Trolley drivers today. One of them was an older gentleman. Not sure about the gentleman part. He was irritated when people in ...
... with leather seats and a sun roof. That's what I'm talking about. We're both pretty much average size and decided we now know how Shaquille O'Neal really feels when driving a Buick. For anyone considering a Fiat 500 for any reason, this car gave me flashbacks to the Yugo. Nuff ...

I left my bags and went to check out the bathroom facilities....and wished I hadn't. There were up to 36 rooms on a floor, and for all those people, only two women's showers and three toilet stalls! That wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the condition of the showers, I had the feeling I might be leaving them feeling less clean than when ...

Historical Traveler Reviews XV Beacon Boston
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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 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
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
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
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!!!
