Fifteen Beacon – Boston, MA

Fifteen Beacon / 15 Beacon Street / Boston, MA 02108 / 1-877-XV-BEACON

Fifteen Beacon is classic movie star handsome. Think Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Cary Grant and James Stewart.

This modern, yet historic boutique hotel, located on historic Beacon Hill, is oozing with charm and class.

Located in a 1903 landmark Beaux Arts building, Fifteen Beacon offers distinguished personalized service.

You will find chic, earth-toned decor mixed with splashes of red and beautiful works of art hanging on the walls.

My partner and I were lucky to stay in their Beacon Hill Studio. Upon entering the studio one cannot help but smile wildly and utter a few “Oh my God’s.”

The room is absolutely stunning in a metrosexual sort of way. Handsome, yet soft.

Our studio had a king sized bed, gas fireplace, mounted 42-inch flat screen TV, sitting area, view of historic Beacon Street, large work desk and free Wi-Fi.

The marble bathroom had a combination rainforest shower and deep jetted tub, as well as heated towel rack.

One of my personal favorite features included the LCD TV and sound system that allowed you to pump music into the bathroom.

Dancing to some Katy Perry while getting ready in the morning makes everything that more fun! 😉

Each room is outfitted with Frette linens, cashmere throws, plush bathrobes, iHome docking station and signature bath amenities.

The room was so luxurious and beautiful that my partner and I didn’t want to leave! We enjoyed the fireplace and relaxed in front of the TV for the evening and got a beautiful nights rest on the extremely comfortable bed.

Gay & Lesbian Factor:  First off, this is Boston…need I say more? 😉 Fifteen Beacon was extremely welcoming and eager to host Out & About Travel at their property. Saying Fifteen Beacon is gay friendly is like saying Boston is historic!? Without a doubt this property is LGBT friendly and should be one of the top choices when visiting the city. My partner and I felt very comfortable being openly affectionate and found the property to be romantic and a perfect retreat for a getaway. Even though there is no need to, I am hereby “outing” Fifteen Beacon as LGBT friendly and worthy of our business.

If I could’ve moved into our room at Fifteen Beacon, I would’ve. Wow. Complete luxury in a non-pretentious environment. Everything about Fifteen Beacon is classy, chic and cool. The color scheme, the level of products used, the decor, the staff, the services….the location! A perfect 10 out of 10 experience.

Bravo!
