    My son and I visited XV Beacon Hotel in Boston as part of a birthday celebration. We had been here previously end it was great to enjoy the same wonderful experiences that we had here in the past.The hotel is very cognizant of the Covid pandemic and the rooms and restaurant remain top notch. My comment today recognizes the professionalism and friendliness of the staff whom accurately reflect the example set by the GM. These are not simply 'staff' but more like a best friend. The highest of high in recommendations for this hotel and team.

    Our recent stay at the XV Beacon hotel in Boston was excellent. The amenities and staff were outstanding. The room was spacious and very well appointed. The bathroom even had a towel warmer and they supplied bathrobes. They provided a shuttle service, which we used extensively to go back and forth to to various locations. Food service in the room was first class. Everyone we encountered were extremely cordial and accommodating. Boston is one of our favorite cities and now ever more so that we found the XV Beacon hotel.

  • Perfect Staycation!!

    The dedication to service and attention to every detail from the staff at XV Beacon made our staycation an outstanding night!!
    Our evening began when we met Amy Finsilver the General Manager who took the time to greet us on arrival with a glass of champagne on the hotel roof deck overlooking the Boston skyline and spectacular sunset!
    Dinner at Moo was delicious, the service excellent and wine selection fantastic!!
    Our room was beautiful with a warm fireplace feeling pampered and away on vacation with every detail met including our favorite drinks!
    The staff and the General Manager Amy Finsilver made our evening very special with their outstanding service and professionalism exceeding all safety guidelines to ensure safe travel was impressive from keyless entry, to UV lights for cleaning electronics.
    I highly recommend XV Beacon for the service, location and luxurious rooms- it's the best hotel it won't disappoint!!!!

    In his most famous work, Childhood and Society, celebrated psychologist Erik Erikson notes, "Those with the best places to stay in probably travel most." It's pure speculation, but the former Harvard professor may have had XV Beacon in mind when he penned this insight. You can travel the world, but will find few boutique hotels with the same dedication to personalized service and executing on the details for the guests lucky enough to stay in one of XV Beacon's 63 rooms. Details like Krug in the mini bar. Details like a choice of six different types of bath salts. Details like an embossed linen cloth placed beneath slippers so one's bare feet need never touch the thick, spotless carpet.

    Though my stay at XV Beacon was BP (Before Pandemic) in February 2020, the experience remains fresh in my mind due to it being my last business trip before a year of COVID-created house arrest. I almost didn't stay at XV Beacon at all. In fact, I almost stayed at the Marriott Long Wharf due to its close proximity to my meeting, but as luck would have it, rates were through the roof due to a large Biogen conference being held there at the same time. This same two-day conference would end up being one of the original COVID-19 superspreader events, infecting over 20,000 in the Boston area and eventually thought to be responsible for spawning 330,000+ infections across the world. Remember this when you next weigh a choice between staying at a hotel with 63 keys vs. 400+ rooms and 20,000 square feet of meeting space.

    The hard product at XV Beacon is great -- high thread count sheets and thirsty towels on heated towel racks, in-room FrancisFrancis! espresso machines and Harman/Kardon sound systems, electronic ignition fireplaces and dedicated work, relaxation and sleeping areas. But what really sets the hotel apart is the service. No request is too large... or too small. XV Beacon delivers intimate personalized service in the way big luxury brands aspire to emulate, but simply cannot because of their size, scale and infrastructure. Take for example the redoubtable and indefatigable Miriam -- checking in guests arriving in the evening at the front desk and then staffing the concierge function with equal alacrity the following morning. Whatever brings you to Boston, the staff of XV Beacon will assure that your stay is optimal.

    The embedded restaurant Mooo is technically a steakhouse but there are plenty of alternative options for non-carnivores. Eat, drink and be merry in a socially distanced, responsible fashion. I must confess I had a bit of a double take at breakfast that recalled a scene in the HBO masterpiece "Succession." In episode 6 of the second season, the Roy family make their way to the fictional lodge retreat "Argestes" (actually filmed in the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY) to close a deal. Scion Kendall Roy orders a Cobb Salad for lunch that arrives... along with the check for $75. My breakfast a Mooo consisted of one bowl of McCann's Irish Oatmeal, a glass of grapefruit juice and a cappuccino... and a bill for $35.56. I should have opted for the minibar Krug instead. As I gulped hard and started to add a gratuity, I noticed that a 20% service charge and 7% tax had already been added to arrive at the princely sum for perhaps the world's most humble food: oats. I don't think I've ever experienced an included service charge - that was not noted by the waiter - for a solo restaurant breakfast. Goodness knows the restaurant and hotel industry has suffered enough over the course of this pandemic to begrudge anyone making a big markup, but the failure to point out the included service charge was a notable oversight.

    Still, when your travel plans take you to Boston, give XV Beacon a try. Chances are you'll be back. And did I mention the Krug?
