Described by Frommer's as "Boston's premier boutique hotel", the XV Beacon is a well-maintained property with impeccable service and a roof terrace with scenic views (open April-October). The hotel has a central location on Beacon Hill, near Boston Common and 10 minutes from the Financial District. There's also a free Lexus car service within Boston city for guests.
The on-site Mooo restaurant, called "world class" by Condé Nast Traveller, is an upmarket steakhouse, with the likes of filet mignon with roasted garlic and bone marrow butter, and Colorado lamb chops on the menu. After dinner, check out the lively bar where there's a lengthy wine list. Breakfast is also impressive, with Belgian waffles, house omelettes and a continental spread on offer.
The hotel has a small 24-hour fitness room and guests can also get preferential daily rates at the nearby Boston Sports Club or the Sports Club LA.
The rooms are spacious and all come with marble bathrooms with rainforest showers and gas fireplaces for a cosy night in during winter. Some rooms have canopied or 4-poster beds, while pricier rooms have jetted baths. Pets are welcome and the optional extra charge is donated to the MSPCA Angell Animal Medical Center.
