Fodor's Expert Review XV Beacon

15 Beacon St., Boston, Massachusetts, 02108, USA See on Map

Located in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood, the XV Beacon is a true taste of luxury in a boutique hotel. The 1903 Beaux Arts exterior is an architectural beauty, while the intimate lobby is all black mahogany with bold splashes of red.
