  • Let them eat cake, for you shall sleep in decadent luxury!

    by Sarah C on 2018-10-15 01:35 pm

    We stayed here for one night only, to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was absolutely exquisite. I would have loved to stay longer - and so shall you - but alas, one can only live like royalty for an evening before the bill begins to chafe a bit. Soak up the ambiance - stay in the room, enjoy the fire, sip the wine (they have an absolutely divine in-room wine bar) and try not to cry when you sign out the next morning.

  • Great location, Hotel has some Issues

    First the positive: XV Beacon is perfectly located, easily within walking distance to the Boston Common, Freedom Trail, the North Side and many central attractions. In addition, the staff that you are likely to interact with is uniformly pleasant, seemingly eager to please and helpful. Our bed, a king, was comfortable, an exceedingly important factor. The adjacent restaurant, Moo, is very good and very convenient. There is a house car available, usually with some advance notice, that will comfortably deliver you to dinner.

    On the slightly less positive, the room that costs almost $600 a night will be very small, less than 400 square feet, and dark. Our room had two windows on two walls (a positive) but they both faced brick walls of adjacent buildings. In addition, the decor is purposely very dark, which compounds the feeling of being in a cave. Our bathroom was small, and the shower was over a tub. The fixtures, English in manufacture, require an advanced degree to operate and they are erratic. We had some difficulty in getting consistent hot water. The bath did not drain adequately, requiring a shower in several inches of water. The tile could use a little bleach cleaning - not bad, but certainly not perfect.

    We received an advance email from the hotel, asking if we had any specific requirements. I requested only feather pillows, but there were none in our room. I didn't make a fuss about it, but if you are going to ask, at least act on it. Housekeeping seemed somewhat indifferent. I don't need an orchid sprig in my bathroom, but if you are going to provide one, at least change the murky water and remove the dead flowers.

    We have stayed at this hotel several times over the years and have always opted for the great location over others. However, if you are expecting a luxurious experience with views or space, you may feel more comfortable elsewhere.

  • One Night, Great Impression!

    by Jonathan R on 2018-10-10 05:11 am

    My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel XV Beacon and have nothing but AMAZING things to say from start to finish! When we arrived around 4:30 PM we were greeted by Johnny at the Valet who took care of our car. From here we were guided right inside to the hotel and spoke with Gabriel at the Front Desk. Both gentlemen greeted us with a smile and asked if we wanted any coffee, water, or something to eat. Gabriel mentioned breakfast and that our bags were going to be all squared away if we wanted to head up to our room or wait around. Gabriel also took the liberty of mentioning services they offer, but We were in a bit of a rush so we ended up going right upstairs, got ready quickly and left for dinner. When we left Gabriel was kind enough to ask about a company car, I did advise him that the overnight supervisor Ryan M had already taken care of that but appreciated it nonetheless. When we arrived back to our hotel after dinner, Jose the driver was ready and took us to the Garden. Jose was talkative the entire night and greeted us with a smile which is always great. After the perfect Elton John show, we Ubered back to the hotel and were graciously greeted by Ryan M and Jose. Both had a smile that you couldn't forget and were welcoming from the get-go. Ryan delivered as promised with the company car, explained the overnight breakfast set up, offered to look into anything for the rest of the night, and brought us up to our room. As promised, breakfast was delivered on time and with yet another smile. As we checked out, Gabriel was there again and asked if there was anything else he could do for us. Valir and Ivan were the valet experts who took care of the car and we were on our way. I couldn't have asked for a more flawless execution for my wife and me to enjoy a night out in Boston. Our room was the perfect size with a nice fireplace to ensure the perfect atmosphere, silk but smooth sheets, and chocolates with a note from the XV Beacon staff. The bathroom was spotless. Staff was friendly and helpful throughout. Working for an AMEX concierge for both platinum/centurion members, I now realize that this service start to finish explains why this is a favorite Boston hotel for not only Amex but their high-level cardmembers. It also felt nice being treated like a Centurion Card Member for the evening. Would definitely stay again for our next outing in Boston. FIVE STARS TO RYAN M, GABRIEL, AND THE REST OF THE XV BEACON STAFF!

  • Superb Boutique Hotel in a great location

    by Eatalyfood on 2018-10-10 02:20 am

    I have stayed here twice and loved each time. Beautiful rooms with great mini bar and excellent in house laundry service, but all the staff are wonderful. Always helpful when you are travelling! A great concierge service with ideas that we would probably never have found ourselves. Mooo the restaurant attached is great too with the best steak in Boston, much too large for me, but my son absolutely wolfed it down. Great bar staff and all in all a very welcoming experience.

  • Business and Pleasure in Beacon Hill and at XV Beacon

    by Paul M on 2018-10-08 05:57 pm

    Arrived at XV Beacon for business for my wife and also for our 35th wedding anniversary. Pillows I requested before hand and also an arrangement of flowers for my wife were ready and both exceeded my expectations. Several requests to the concierge were handled quickly. Ride service provided by XV Beacon was very convenient. Fireplace in our room was unexpected and much appreciated. Our dinner at the attached Moo... restaurant was excellent. Given another opportunity we would both stay at XV Beacon again.
