Last fall when we visited colleges with our son in the Boston area, we chose to stay at XV Beacon. When we entered our room we couldn't have imagined the luxury that awaited us. An incredibly comfy and inviting king sized bed dressed in rich linens, large windows that provided us with wonderful views of Boston, a cozy fireplace and...

We have been staying at 15 Beacon for the past 7 years. Only hotel in Boston that we truly consider our home away from home. The staff treats us as family, and makes us feel welcome.

Great location. Staff is very eager to help out in any way. Love the General Manager's mountain dog The hotel is located right near Boston Common is an extremely central area. You can walk anywhere you want, in 10 minutes or less. Plus the commons have a great little playground and run around areas right across the street.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
