Romantic Getaway WeekendPosted Jan 28, 2014
My wife and I stayed here the weekend of Jan. 24th, 2014 for a two night stay as a quick getaway weekend. We could not have been more pleased with the hotel, the location, the amenities and friendliness of the staff. Despite the frigid temperatures, virtually the entire city was walkable from the hotel and when the wind was too biting, the complementary Lexus sedan escort was a wonderful perk, they even drove us back to the airport! The fireplace in the room, luxurious bed and contemporary decor were wonderful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet stay in the heart of the city.

Beautiful Hotel; quiet and off the beaten path.Posted Jan 26, 2014
Pros: The fireplaces in the room.
Cons: The water temperature in the bathroom took time to adjust; perhaps they could improve that.
Location: Quiet location near the Boston Commons; you are a short walk away from Newbury Street (retail shopping).
The hotel staff was most courteous and took the time to get to know you. Overall a pleasant stay.

Sweet Suites!Posted Jan 16, 2014
We stay at 4 and 5 stars often, and XV Beacon is up there with the best. The room is a solid, large rectangle. The entire one wall is huge, bright windows with the drapes open. With them closed, it is a luxury setting, delightful large bed, fireplace on the other end, and more than enough room for your stay. The bath has all the comforts of top european brands, complete with in wall TV, towel warmers and a huge shower. The radio was playing softly when we arrived. Complimentary fruits in several places on each floor. Fully stocked bar and snack center, with high quality choices. Going to dinner? Don't call a cab. XV has a chauferred Lexus sedan to take you whereever you are going, no charge. The drivers were incredibly knowledgable about Boston history, architecture, and much more. Or, if you wanted quiet, the sedan had full passenger control audio and climate in the back, so you make the choices. Need anything at all? The concierge went out of their way for all our requests, and everything was ready on time. We would stay here everytime we come to Boston. Give it a try and I think you will too.

Fantastic week-end with the XV at the centerPosted Dec 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was a great place to stay in Boston -- and you pay for what you get. That's a note. Though there were construction in the area -- that's temporary. We had a fireplace failure, but Patrick at the desk immediately found us a room to move. You want a great place to stay: go.

Convenient and exceptionalPosted Dec 10, 2013
Pros: see above
Cons: more space/drawers for clothes
We chose this hotel because of its location. The rooms were rather small, but beautifully appointed. The mattress was super comfortable (Frette bedding certainly didn't hurt!), the fireplace added to the ambiance, and the small shower was soon forgotten because of the rainshower head. The staff could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. The rates were a bit on the high end, but I would stay there again on our next visit to Boston!

Lovely room and great neighborhood, wonderful service, but even considering this not up to the price tag.
