The rooms feature canopy beds, fireplaces, stereo systems with CD library, and fresh flowers. It is located at the crest of the gay-friendly, historic Beacon Hill neighborhood.
We have stayed at the XV Beacon hotel twice and both times were very pleased. The hotel is extremely clean. The staff is friendly and very professional - a perfect balance. In-hotel transportation was available every time we requested. We were greeted with a room upgrade, which is always appreciated. Staying at the XV Beacon is a must when we visit Boston! -MurphySim
Loved our night in!
Service, location, dining and more! XV Beacon has always taken such great care of us over the years. The always accommodating staff had us in our rooms and hotel robes in no time :) We live in Boston and love to stay at XV Beacon for a romantic night out that’s not too far from home. Do yourself a favor and order the French fries (2 Orders!) eat them in front of the fireplace then follow that up with champagne and strawberries for an absolutely perfect evening! Thank you XV Beacon AGAIN for making our stay memorable!! -hac0sta, Boston, Massachusetts
We don't stay in Boston very often because we live in the suburbs nearby, but when we do we now always stay at XV beacon. We tried Four seasons, Taj and the Ritz and this is the best. It is located in a great, convent spot and the hotel is First class all the way. The Rooms are Very comfortable with fireplace, Chairs, minibars, etc The Restaurant for breakfast and lunch was good and the dinner at MOOO is rated one of the best in Boston. If you are in Boston for a sort stay, this is the place to be. -Joseph M, Boston, Massachusetts
Service that went above and beyond
I checked into this hotel on a freezing Bostonian day, right before a major speech that I had to deliver the next morning. I was coming down with a cold and was not feeling 100%. When they brought me to my first room, it was elegant, but small and did not offer a bathtub, which was important to me. When I called down to explain this, they immediately brought me up to a higher, and larger room that did offer a bathtub. They then offered me special bath salts to help detox and fight a cold. They then made sure all of my needs were met and were very accommodating.
I also happened to order the BEST chicken noodle soup I had ever had from their roomservice via their onsite restaurant called "Mooo." It really blew my mind. Overall, the hotel was in a great location, the bed was comfortable, the room was quiet with a nice little electric fireplace, the service was great and my overall experience at this hotel was extremely pleasant. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a nice hotel for a business stay while in Boston.
*It is also less than a mile walk from the train station to the hotel with plenty of restaurants and bars near by. -JenHillJHCCS, Los Angeles, California
Cosy comfortable hotel in Boston
We enjoyed our stay at XV Beacon. Comfortable stylish hotel in a good location. Not large or grand. But very cosy (gas fireplace in our room was a nice touch for a few very cold days in Boston). Good quality restaurant (Mooo) for breakfast and dinner (will submit a separate review for our dinner). -Wayne P, Sydney, Australia
An amazing hotel in a great location
Guest services couldn't have been more helpful and the house car is available at all times to ferry guests to dinner etc. Rooms super stylish (esp. the suit that we got upgraded to). It's right by the Freedom trail too in case that's your thing. -samuelmartins2017, Newbury, United Kingdom
Some claim George Washington slept here! Our lips are sealed!

As a steakhouse, Mooo….’s versatility also puts it in the moood for breakfast, Sunday brunch, lunch and lighter bar fare as well as dinner. Simply stated, 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—plus the best darn pancakes and healthy smoothies this side of the Charles—dub Mooo…. as both classic and innovative.
