Review of XV Beacon Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 20, 2024via mobile
The rooms are very comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. Staff are, to a person, attentive. Special recognition is owed to the overnight clerk and the Lexus drivers. Housekeepers are very organised and proficient. Concierges have good knowledge bases and memories.
Date of stay: April 2024
Trip type: Travelled on business

Wonderful overnight stay. We needed a mini-vacation and XV Beacon did a wonderful job from the moment we pulled up at valet until we departed. Prompt room service, a Lexus transport to/from dinner, and nice greetings throughout our stay. We did not want to leave! I had stayed here 20 years ago when it first opened and they have not missed a step at all.

This gem is located steps from the Boston Common and from the moment we arrived we were treated to service above and beyond our expectations. Doormen await to assist with our luggage and car park. The front desk employees could not have been nicer in the most genuine way, authentic and not forced.

Our room was beautiful as always and as clean and comfortable as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. From the Italian tiled rain forrest shower to the espresso machine and a lovely warm bed, we couldn't have asked for more!

An exceptional dining room awaited us and though a busy Friday night the attention to detailed service was equaled by outstanding food at the restaurant Mooo, appetizers, entrees, and desert were over the top. An elegant dining room that was clearly popular, this was the crowning jewel of our stay.

We can't recommend XV Beacon any more for the discerning visitors to the greatest city in the world!

Room tip: Yes, XV Beacon offers complimentary Lexus car service to many parts of Boston. Check with concierge for details and info.

To keep it brief we had high expectations of this highly rated hotel. For some reason upon arrival, the valet was not very kind. It didn’t make sense. But once we came inside and met the rest of the staff at all, began to take form. we immediately called our booking agent and canceled the room due to the lack of greetings, or any type of welcoming gesture by the hotel staff. There are so many great hotels nearby. Look elsewhere

Solid hotel in a great location to see the city of Boston. This was a quieter hotel with the boutique vibe for sure. The room was very nice and clean and plenty of room for a few nights. As this this is a moderately priced hotel i think it delivers quite well for the cost. I will say that i did not love the food from room service, but that could just be personal preference. Would i stay again? Probably not, but that is just because I don’t think there was anything exceptional about the place.

The XV Beacon Hotel is perched atop Boston's Beacon Hill just steps from the bustling Financial District and the Massachusetts State House. I appreciated the exquisite vibe portrayed by the hotel's Beaux-Arts facade, chic decor, original cage elevators, grand marble staircase, dark-stained woods, crimson accents and antique furniture. High end details abound in my spacious Beacon Hill Studio accommodations with cozy love seat parked in front of the fireplace dispersing a distinct residential feel. Curated art pieces with a color palette of taupe, cream & espresso creates a classic ambience. The bath was marbleized and outfitted with a rainforest shower & whirlpool tub combo. Mooo... is such a cool name for their steakhouse restaurant (why not) serving items like grass fed beef, noteworthy salads & desserts and inviting cocktails as well as an award winning wine list. The menu reveals meaty items ranging from Japanese Wagyu Sirloin to Omaha Prime Ribeye. For myself, I put together a trio of food-fare in the form of Wild Mushroom Soup, Bone Marrow and Prime Sirloin Carpaccio.....and I didn't pass on a dessert of Creme Brulee,,,,this culinary collage was a jackpot of flavors. Mooo... is open 7 days a week for all dayparts.

So, if you relish an exquisite mix of architecture, history, all the creature comforts and top-notch service....................then try the ...............XV Beacon................a luxury boutique beauty.
