XV Beacon Hotel – Boston, MA

15 Beacon Street | Boston, MA 02108 | 617-670-1500

The very first time I had the pleasure of staying at XV Beacon was back in 2015. I described the hotel as classic movie-star handsome, which it still is. Think Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, and James Stewart.

XV Beacon is the type of boutique hotel where the doorman smiles big as he swings open the door welcoming you to the hotel.

Where the concierge happily informs you of their courtesy in-town Lexus service in their GX460 or new 2022 LX 600.

It’s the type of hotel where the front desk agent banters with you in a down-to-earth, yet professional manner making you feel welcome and at ease.

I instantly got the feeling the staff was truly there to accommodate our needs and make sure our stay was as special as possible.


My colleague Kim and I were booked in a Contemporary Classic Room with two double beds.

I always feel like a kid on Christmas morning the first time I step into a hotel room, especially at such a beauitful property.

The room is sleek and modern, adorned in different shades of greys, browns, and black.

The first thing that hit my eyes was the cashmere throws, with the XV Beacon logo on each bed.

Next was the welcome dish of chocolate chip cookies, to which both Kim and I give two big thumbs up!

The room was spacious and had a gas fireplace, work desk, two double beds, and Smart TV.

The marble bathroom has a rainforest shower and sunken whirlpool tub combination, and, I am happy to report, excellent water pressure! It felt so good I didn’t want to get out the morning of checkout!

The bed was extremely comfortable as was the in-room temp which was easily adjustable.

The hotel’s onsite restaurant, Mooo, is a steakhouse that is open 7 days a week. Mooo…. reflects the apex of hotel fine dining. Attentive service, sophisticated décor, signature dishes that include an all-natural grass-fed ribeye and Wagyu A5 sirloin.

Although we didn’t make it to Mooo for dinner, we did enjoy breakfast in our room and I can attest their pancakes are indeed the best I’ve EVER had. Absolutely delicious. My colleague, Kim, was also impressed with her breakfast, The XV “Bacon” (two eggs any style, applewood smoked bacon, ham steak or sausage, O’Brien potatoes, choice of toast).

Even though our stay was just overnight, it truly felt like a magical escape.

Also, I must note, the hotel’s amazing scent! XV Beacon’s signature hotel candle was burning throughout our stay and was intoxicating.

It’s the little touches that separate a good hotel from a GREAT hotel.

The (genuine) friendly service. The eagerness to help. The aroma. The fantastic art displayed throughout the hotel. The welcome cookies. The luxurious bedding. The bathroom amenities. A great location.

XV Beacon truly has it all!
