    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. …

    ... for some food.

    Near the Boston Public Library was a shopping centre with a food court. Just like at home, they're filled with fast food chain after fast food chain with a shared seating area in the middle (think Arndale or Trafford Centre). Unlike home, however, they have amongst them the greatest fast food known to man, and quite frankly the pinnacle of quick-service dining: Panda Express. If you've never been, you're missing out. Big time. It's basically ...

Later that evening I met an Italian guy at the hostel, we both made pasta for dinner (it's easiest and cheapest) and I am more than happy to say that mine came out the best, yes really, better than an Italian! Later that evening I was craving ice cream, and although we got stupidly lost, in the end we found and Ben and Jerrys and wandered around the city. When arriving back at the hostel, a few guys I met the previous night before were determine to get ...

    Learning can be fun

    A travel blog entry by famlitz on Jun 07, 2014

    Soooooo, after waking up with half of my sheets almost gone, I got up at 6:15. We don't have the best mattresses. Plastic covered with flat sheets, not fitted. So every morning I actually spend time making my bed or better: putting it back together again. Did I mention that the pillow is also plastic covered. Not the pillowcase, the pillow.
    Since it rained in the night it has cooled off considerably, so I was once again very ...

    ... eventually our lifts would end up down at the lobby and we could retrieve our things. Finally with our bags in tow we walked out of the building to meet Tom who had been hovering with the car for the last 20mins. He was understandably a little frustrated that we hadn’t been ready (for once I was!), but if only he knew of the drama going on inside. The drive to Boston should have taken less than 4 hours but after 4.5 hours we ...
