Old marries new at a hotel housed in what was once a private mansion. Century-old architectural details still abound in the 1903 structure, including the wrought iron birdcage elevator. But sleek modernity ultimately rules the day. Each room inside the boutique hotel is decorated in a cream and espresso palette with specially commissioned art and includes both a gas fireplace and a separate sitting area. But the real reason the hotel has so many return guests? The amenities. Cashmere throws, Frette linens, rainforest shower heads, fresh flowers and overnight laundry and shoe shining, to name but a few. In 2009, the property received a minor upgrade, introducing Lexus courtesy cars and a new pet pampering program (all animal fees go to a local animal organization). If you’re mulling over where to grab dinner, start at MOOO…., the in-hotel modern steakhouse (you can also order off the menu via room service).

I can't say enough about my great stay at XV Beacon when I was last in Boston. This boutique hotel is first class. The hotel's concierge, car service, and pristine rooms make the premium price more than worth it. The staff in the hotel went way out of their way to ensure that my stay was an enjoyable one. When their private car was not available to drive me and my guest to dinner, XV Beacon provided us with a separate car service to get us where we needed to go. The perfect neighborhood with a sweeping view of the park and the state house, this will be my go-to hotel for any stay in Boston.
