  • Amazing Boutique Hotel.

    by smedley26 on 2019-01-06 07:40 am

    From the moment that we checked to the moment we checked out the hotel and it's team were amazing.

    The rooms are of a good size and the gas fire is a great touch, it's makes the room feel warm and cozy.

    The mini bar is the most comprehensive I have ever seen!

    The staff were great from the concierge, reception and bar team.

    The restaurant Moo great menu and quality of food was sublime. The cocktail and wine list was very comprehensive.

    Loved this hotel and Boston!!

  • A very nice boutique hotel by Boston Common

    The good bits. Hotel is in a very good position by Boston common and easy to walk to all the sights, restaurants and bars. The staff were amazing. I had been in contact with the concierge a fair few times prior to our arrival. They booked a hire car for us which was brought to the hotel and gave us quite a bit of pre arrival information. The room had a fireplace which was lovely and cosy in the evening.

    The bad bits. We were given a room on the first floor which faced an area used as a rubbish dump. At 4 am we were woken up by a very loud truck which was filling fuel (or some other substance) into a building until 6am. My husband video this and in the morning complained to reception as we had been kept awake during that whole time. We were upgraded to a suite immmediatly which was very nice and had no further noise issues. But I don't understand why the bed in the suite is a regular double while the bed in the room we moved from was a king size?! Breakfast was a la carte and we were charged for every orange juice (no refills) and coffee. The beds are firm which was not to our liking but that's a personal thing. Fairly small bathroom.

    More good bits. They didn't charge us for our first night at the hotel and gave us a complimentary ride to the airport at the end of our trip.

    I would recommend this hotel for the service alone but beware not to stay in the rooms facing the rubbish dump. Also take note you are not given drink refills at breakfast.

  • Our first stay certainly won't be our last

    My Wife and I stayed at XV Beacon recently and would recommend this hotel to anyone. Check In was a breeze and we were up in our room in no time. We stayed in a Beacon Hill Studio which was plenty big enough for the two of us even when ordering room service. I had mentioned ahead of time that we were just celebrating a Holiday weekend and they put us in the room that had the Christmas Tree out the window. The look on my Wife's face seeing that she had a fireplace and a Christmas Tree to look at was priceless. We scheduled the courtesy car a few days ahead of time as we were going to a show at the Wang which was really nice. The driver gave us his card so we could call for a pickup if available, but just cabbed it home. While we were at the show they came in for turn down service and put the local Christmas station on the sound system (room and bathroom) so when we walked back in my Wife was again floored. We ate downstairs at Moo which was very good and the menu is available for room service as well. It was a great experience.

    On behalf of the XV Beacon team, we thank you for your wonderful feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed the room with the view of the tree; it is my favorite room this time of the year just due to that stunning view- certainly gets you in the holiday spirit. We will be sure to share your review with those team members whom made your stay extra memorable and we look forward to having you back soon!

  • Few observations after several visits

    by JAJK66 on 2018-12-10 11:20 am

    I have stayed three times over period of 4 months each time with a different room type. Two out of three visits one of the two lifts was not working. The Classic room is quite small. I've written before the layout makes it smaller than the stated space. Last time I ordered room service dinner and realized you either have your dinner in the hallway at the desk or off the tray on your bed. Neither is very optimal. The Double Contemporary Classic is very good size though two double beds take quite a lot of space. I think it was one of the Studio rooms I was upgraded on one occasion. This was a seriously nice room. Plenty of space. Very functional. Only problem was it was facing the street, and starting at 4am there were plenty of truck traffic outside. Not great if you are jetlagged - ask for room facing back. The room service food is very high quality and they provide a very nice selection. Now I have also visited the gym few times. It's small and the low ceiling makes it feel even smaller. That said, it is enough to get in a reasonable workout. For me the main thing is the location is super convenient for our office, and in that area it is the nicest property. Still wondering why the visits don't show up in my iPrefer account even after I pointed it out to the front desk.

  • Luxurious Comfort

    by Chance S on 2018-11-20 04:07 pm

    Stayed at XV Beacon for four nights. Staff was always welcoming when returning to the hotel in the evenings. The car service was a nice touch, although they aren't able to pickup or dropoff at the airport without a $40 fee. That was unexpected, but took an Uber instead for $20. Seems like it would be worth the fee to get the license to be able to offer that service to guests. Amenities were great. Fireplace in the room was a nice touch in the evenings. Rooftop had a great view. Nice area to lay out in the sun. Housekeeping was prompt with requests, and always serviced the room very well twice a day. I will absolutely stay here again next time we're in the area!
