Though there are only 63 rooms at Four-Star XV Beacon hotel, they’re more spacious than you would expect in a historic building, and each one comes with a working fireplace. The Boston hotel has a few different guest room configurations, the smallest of which is the Classic room, which is approximately 300 square feet and fits a queen-sized four-poster bed. The Contemporary Classic room is slightly bigger at 395 square feet and has a queen-sized canopy bed, plus a small sitting area with a chaise lounge. The studios, at 475 and 485 square feet, each have one queen or king bed, a sitting area, and feature views of Beacon Street. (Classic rooms have garden views, which face the back of the hotel.) The largest guest room option is the 1370-square-foot Gilbert Stuart Suite, which has two bedrooms, three baths and a parlor room.
All guest rooms have a gas fireplace, flat-mounted TV, surround-sound stereo system, rainforest shower and tubs — some with jets — heated towel racks and bathroom amenities specially created for XV Beacon. What we love most about the guest rooms at XV Beacon are the little touches, such as the soft, chocolate-colored cashmere throws created specifically for the hotel. All of the rooms feature pillow-top beds with 400-thread count Frette linens-soft and luxurious enough to help you drift away when you turn in for the night.
