I have stayed @ XV Beacon 1/2 dozen times and no matter what the rate happens to be @ the moment, the entire experience, which is what your stay is, is worth every nickel. From the staff, to the restaurant/bar, to the complimentary hotel car, to the physical property/amenities themselves, and as a Hotel professional myself, this property has won my heart and business forever more while in Boston! There is none finer!
Pros: Expensive, Fireplaces!, Ahead of it's game
Cons: Not enough rooms, Limited view TV, Nothing else wrong
