In a brief visit to the XV Boston, I was really impressed by the style, understated elegance, and friendliness of this little boutique hotel. I've spent most of my time in Europe over the last few years and so have had limited contact with American hotels, but this one made me proud to be a Yank.

This is an excellent boutique hotel in a very central location in Beacon Hill. The lobby is a modest size and understated in its décor as are the hallways, but the rooms are replete with extras. The marble bathroom rooms provide amenities beyond shampoo, conditioner and soap, such as lip balm, a tv and heated towel rack. The bath sheets are plush as are the bathrobes. The mini bar and snacks are extensive and include wine glasses (very important for me). We were able to have a Nespresso machine upon request.
The bed was comfortable and faced a working gas fireplace as well as flat screen tv. Turn down service included turning on the stereo in the room. The room included a comfortable lounge as well as desk and chairs. There was no real view from the windows, just other buildings, but the draperies worked well to keep out the morning light.
Other extras included the shuttle service provided by the top of the line Lexus vehicles and fast internet connections.
The restaurant Mooo is attached and also provides room service.
Service was uniformly friendly and helpful.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

WOW is all I have to say about the XV. Well that, and maybe...fabulous! Or try hotel experience of a lifetime!! I really couldn't have asked for more when I stayed at the XV. The beds were heavenly soft (not the Westin Heavenly beds...haha). The architecture reeks classic Boston, which just added to the old-school feel, and the service made me feel right at home from the minute I stepped into the glorious lobby.
Whenever we wanted to go out, whether it be for dinner or drinks or sightseeing (Boston Common is just blocks away), we used the complimentary town car service, and had a very friendly man drive us around. I'd definitely want to stay here again and will not hesitate to recommend it highly to anyone.

I stayed here with my wife and we have only wonderful things to say about the XV. It's a boutique hotel, so you don't have to worry about any corporate driven sales campaigns or impersonal, business-like service that leaves many thirsty for more.
We had only the best personal service at the XV, as many of the staff in the lobby welcomed us by name whenever we came back from our adventures in the city (it has great location, too!)
