XV Beacon Hotel in Boston's Historic Downtown neighborhood
Imagine the perfect Boston location for a hotel, close to all the top visitor attractions...Boston Common, famous historic sites on the Freedom Trail, wonderful restaurants, Faneuil Marketplace shops, recreation along the waterfront.
That's where you'll find Fifteen Beacon, which also happens to be one of Boston's top luxury hotels.
In fact, both Travel and Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler readers rank Fifteen Beacon Hotel one of the best hotels in the U.S. and the world . . . year after year.
Condé Nast Traveler readers recently ranked the individually-owned XV Beacon as THE best hotel in the United States out of 7,700 nominated properties - including much better known luxury brands such as Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental.
If your idea of a perfect vacation or a successful business trip includes staying in a top-rated luxury boutique hotel in a location close to Boston's top attractions and restaurants, then the XV Beacon Hotel may become your home away from home, the place you'll return to again and again.
But location is just the beginning of why you'll love this hotel.
Personalized service...As at any top 5-star hotel, impeccable personal service distinguishes Fifteen Beacon, but it goes a step beyond what other hotels offer.
Need to go somewhere nearby? The hotel's complimentary Lexus sedans and chauffeurs will take you.
Contact the concierge before arriving to discuss your needs - airport transport, tickets, private tours of the city, exercise equipment in your room - and they'll be met.
Fifteen Beacon occupies a stately 1903 Beaux Arts building, complete with a magnificent marble staircase and a very cool see-through elevator.
You'll be greeted with fresh fruit on all of XV Beacon's 10 floors, specially baked pastries made by the in-house pastry chef when you arrive (plus special biscuits for pooch), windows that open, Frette linens and cashmere throws, free WiFi, and other luxurious comforts.
A top attraction is the working gas fireplace in each of XV Beacon Hotel's rooms and suites. You'll also find 42" flat screen TVs, 5-disk CD players with a CD library, heated towel racks, and bathrobes and slippers.
The 63 rooms and suites are individually decorated, with no two quite alike. They feature a stylish mix of luxurious but comfortable modern and antique furnishings, along with commissioned artwork and fresh flowers.
Wonder why XV Beacon offers the perfect combination of superb service and luxurious comfort?
Owner Paul Roiff, a local real estate developer with no prior hotel experience, created Fifteen Beacon based on his vision of an ideal luxury hotel, along with a somewhat more casual "sister" hotel, Inn at St. Botolph.
The 10-floor Fifteen Beacon offers the ultimate luxury on July 4th - a roof deck and garden where guests can hear the Boston Pops concert through speakers, and then watch the spectacular fireworks over the Charles River.
Book early if you want to get reservations here for July 4th!
On other evenings, bring your drink up to the deck, sink down on one of the comfortable recliners, and watch the sun slip down behind the iconic Hancock building. Or, reserve the hot tup and enjoy the stars.
XV Beacon's location in Historic Downtown Boston just a block and a half from the Common means you're a short walk from practically everywhere you'd want to go.
As you can seen in the photo at the left (taken from XV Beacon's roof deck), you're right in the center of the city.
Beacon Hill, ice skating on Frog Pond in Boston Common, the Swan Boats on the lagoon in the Public Garden, Back Bay, the Theatre District, the North End . . . they're all close to the hotel.
If you're interested in history, explore the Freedom Trail to see Boston's most historic sites. You can explore Colonial graveyards, interesting museums, and even some 200+ year old taverns.
Near Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, you'll see colorful Haymarket on Fridays and Saturday, and the haunting New England Holocaust Memorial. You can walk down to the Waterfront . . . or even up to TD Garden to catch a Celtics or Bruins game.
