The Four-Star XV Beacon is set on the historic Beacon Hill, a tony Boston neighborhood that enjoys a higher elevation than the nearby Back Bay (which sits on landfill along the shores of the Charles River). Thanks to its location, the Beaux-Arts building that houses the hotel offers some spectacular views of the city, which itself is less vertical than other metropolises due to the vast number of historical buildings. This means that rooms that rise above the adjacent buildings have great views of the city and its domes, steeples and parks. Studios overlook historic Beacon Street. Request a room on a higher floor and you’ll have picturesque views of the copper-domed state house, Boston Common and Boston Public Garden. The higher up you are in the hotel, the better view you have of the sun setting over Boston’s skyline.
The rooms that have the best views at XV Beacon are the Corner Studios.
