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.We considered other boutique hotels in Boston but were glad we chose XV Beacon. For us, the location was perfect and we cannot say enough good things about the service from the staff.
