XV Beacon

15 Beacon St.
Boston , MA , United States http://www.xvbeacon.com/
(617) 670-1500

One of Boston’s first modern design hotels when it opened in 2000, the surprisingly homey 60-room XV (call it “Fifteen”) has a stylish, bold décor that contrasts nicely with its 1903 Beaux Arts building. A svelte scheme of dark wood, brushed steel, and cream-colored fabrics prevails, but it’s punctuated by bold abstract paintings and vintage touches like a cage elevator, marble busts, and canopy beds in every guest room. The rooms are spacious—some as large as 900 square feet—and all have gas fireplaces and mini bars that might tempt you to snuggle in on a cold night. Venturing out? Take the complimentary car service around town.

Tip: Have dinner at the in-house steak restaurant, Mooo... or at least sample from the 500-bottle wine list.

Room to Book: Any of the Corner Studios on floors 8 through 10, for Boston Common views and lots of natural light.
