On the crest of Beacon Hill lies the XV Beacon, set within a 20th century Beaux Arts building in one of Boston’s most historic districts. The historic façade conceals a modern boutique hotel, where slick service and personalised experiences are the order of the day.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

XV Beacon houses just 63 guestrooms over seven floors, furnished with an amalgamation of modern and antique pieces and crisp linens in earthy tones. All guestrooms feature the necessary tech to keep you in touch with the world, alongside homely touches such as cashmere throws for those cold Boston winters, and commissioned artworks on the walls. Ensuite bathrooms include heavenly rain showers, heated towels racks and a second TV, with jetted bathtubs in Studios and Suites.

The in house Mooo Steakhouse offers a contemporary take on a US classic, under the watchful eye of chef Jamie Mammano, and is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Mooo also houses exclusive dining venue the Wine Cellar, a subterranean venue where vaulted ceilings and stone walls house an impressive collection of rare and fine wines. In-room dining is also available 24/7, and includes the opportunity to order from the complete Mooo restaurant menu.

There is no pool at XV Beacon, but the rooftop terrace is a great spot to unwind, and enjoy the views of the Boston skyline. You're just a short walk from the leafy banks of the Charles River, gold-domed Statehouse, Boston Common and Public Garden, but should you feel the urge, make use of the courtesy in-town Lexus chauffeur service to explore the city, or transport you to your chosen dining spot as night falls.

The XV Beacon is a fusion of history and modernity, where the customs and service of a grand hotel meet the needs of a modern day traveller, from the brass buttoned bellhops that greet your arrival, to the 24 hour concierge who can be contacted through the XV Beacon smartphone app, on hand to advise on your choice of dining, art exhibits, museums, or whatever takes your fancy, really.

Why we love it
