There are an abundance of shopping opportunities in Boston, with many of the best ones within walking distance of XV Beacon.
Faneuil Hall features various stalls stocked with Boston-related souvenirs, as well as retail shops for well-known national chains such as Nine West, Ann Taylor and Coach. The Downtown Crossing retail district, where you’ll find outlets for Macy’s, Bath & Body Works and Eddie Bauer in addition to vendors hawking Boston t-shirts and caps, is also just two blocks from this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel.
A stroll through nearby Boston Common will take you to Newbury Street, where luxury retailers including Valentino and Chanel have set up shop along with numerous restaurants and cafés. Finally, just past Newbury Street is Copley Square Mall and the Shops at Prudential Center — if you don’t want to walk there, you can alternately jump on the MBTA subway at Park Street and take it three stops to Copley Square.
