XV Beacon Hotel
City Chic

A go-to staple, this cozy yet refined boutique hotel is tucked behind a historic exterior in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, home to Harvard grads, an eclectic mix of restaurants, and the iconic, shop-lined Charles Street. Standout features of the ultra-stylish property include the original cage-like elevators (juxtaposed with modern abstract works by local artists); a 24-hour concierge for midnight insight on can't-miss museum exhibits; and an outdoor deck with lounge chairs ideal for sunset relaxation. Guests also love the scenic location: the Charles River is just a five-minute walk via footbridge. Think of it as your own personal pied-à-terre.
