The location was wonderful. Absolutely one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Boston. I enjoyed the restaurant, Mooo, very much. Be sure to have the dumplings. The staff was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the comfortable spacious, and luxurious room. I can not wait to stay at XV Beacon again.

Stayed in a studio room on the sixth floor. Hands down the most beautiful and spacious hotel room I have ever been in. Gorgeous linens - loved the cashmere throw and Frette robes. Furniture, appointments and bathroom fixtures just lovely. Staff were courteous and accommodating. Dinner at Mooo was sublime. However, for the money spent, a few complaints: as a...

The staff who gave us directions and greeted us upon our arrival were lovely. The room itself was quite well done aesthetically. However it's functionality was minimal. The only seating other then the bed blocked access to the mini fridge as well as presenting an obstacle course when coupled with the four poster bed. The whole side of my face...

Firstly the good points: - excellent location - great complementary car service (very luxurious!) - good breakfast, both the service and the food quality and choices - very helpful staff The less good points: - shockingly awful internet connectivity requiring re-entering of passwords every day and with very patchy coverage. Fine if you are out and about every day, but...

Fifteen Beacon is tucked away right by Boston Common. Superb location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was breath-taking. A large suite on the top floor, corner room. So we had south-west exposure and could enjoy city views. The decor is very earthy and artistic. Frette towels and robes, walk-in closets, the works. This is a special occasion...

Stayed in the 15th Beacon last month for 2 nights. On business in the city. Was tired when I arrived . Its my 3rd time to stay in the hotel. The hotel is home from home. All the staff are very nice and professional but serious and get whatever task needs to be done sorted. The hotel is very sophisticated...

The location, accommodations, cuisine and most of all the staff here is truly top notch. We stayed in May for only a night and were treated like royalty. Close to shopping, Boston Common and pet friendly. Best of the best that Boston has to offer!

After our visit in NYC, we stayed in XV Beacon and the stay was good, overall we had a good experience and our stay was short but good. If we return back to Boston I will book this hotel. Thank you staff for our wonderful stay.

This is a hotel that I ALWAYS wanted to stay at since I went to college in Boston...so on my 40th College Reunion, I booked the hotel...usually, I stay at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common and so I'm obviously spoiled...unfortunately, the entire front of the XV Hotel was in scaffolding - not an impressive site...the room was on the small side...

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.
