Aside from its boutique feel and appealing, updated Federalist décor, XV Beacon has many amenities that make this Four-Star hotel unique. Here’s our list of the five things we love most about XV Beacon:
1. The location. Situated on upscale Beacon Street, the hotel is steps away from the state house, Boston’s financial district, cultural venues and some of the city’s top attractions, including the Boston Common and Boston Public Garden. Nearby Charles Street, which serves as something of an English-style high street for Beacon Hill, is lined with charming boutiques, antique shops and restaurants, should you decide to leave the hotel.
2. It’s good for business. The staff at XV Beacon will do everything they can to get you to and from meetings or find a workspace within the hotel, so that you can spend less time working and more time playing. Along with free Internet access in the guestrooms and restaurant, XV Beacon has two Lexus 460 LS cars, a Lexus Hybrid and a Lexus SUV available to transport guests to and from the airport, as well as to business meetings and events around Boston. The house car service is complimentary, so you can ride in style to your appointments.
3. You won’t go hungry at XV Beacon. The hotel’s restaurant Mooo is one of Boston’s premier steakhouses, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The bar at Mooo is a great place to meet friends and colleagues, or just wind down after a long day of meetings. The in-room dining menu at XV Beacon also includes the full menu from Mooo, so if you’re not in the mood to socialize you can still enjoy the top-notch food from the restaurant.
4. We adore a penthouse view. During spring and summer, XV Beacon opens its rooftop deck to guests, where you’ll get a great view of Boston’s upscale Beacon Hill neighborhood. If you’re lucky, you’ll be in town when the hotel hosts one of its occasional cocktail parties, or you can rent out the deck for a meeting or event.
5. Fire away. All the rooms at XV Beacon have fireplaces, making it a truly cozy spot to call home in the winter months. Boston is known for its endless winters, and nothing beats cozying up to your private fireplace with a cashmere blanket when the snow is falling on a cold night.
