Pricey boutique hotel with friendly...
Pros: All staff were happy, courteous and helpful - the bellhops, driver (Paul), reception desk staff and concierge were professional and pleasant. It was nice to have Paul drive us to Long Wharf for our evening boat ride. The concierge helped us pick a terrific restaurant for dinner afterwards in Little Italy. A nice treat was the slice of chocolate cake and plate of cookies that were delivered to our room for my sweetheart's birthday - he'll be 74 on Saturday - and that's why we went to Boston to celebrate.
Cons: I booked this hotel because the online description of the roof top viewing for the July 4th fireworks was very inviting. Honestly, the event was a bust. People assembled with coolers loaded with alcohol and many were drunk before the fireworks display began. The TV coverage was intermittent and buzzing - but who could see the TV with everyone standing? Why were all the seats removed? I thought the space would have the chairs, tables and lounges and there would be a barbecue or snacks for the guests. Really - what is the purpose of apples in a bowl on every floor? And 3 little dishes lined up with 3 paper clips? And why espresso coffee instead of American coffee?

Incredible location, stellar staff and...
Pros: I booked XV Beacon as a celebration for my sister's 50th birthday. SHE was wowed at the ambiance and the character of the hotel. I was so glad! Great surprise for her. The bed was super comfortable, the location is incredible to be able to walk to so many sights and restaurants, the staff unbelievably kind and helpful, and we even got door to door free service in the hotel shuttle to our choice of restaurant for dinner (thank you SO much, Mark!) I would highly recommend XV Beacon especially to tourists for the location but also for locals if you would like a fun location to re-connect with Boston!
Cons: I have been to boutique hotels before both in the US and in Europe. This hotel very much reminded me of our European stays. The rooms were a bit smaller than I pictured for a US hotel of this expense. I booked this for the 2 of us, but the room is really set up for either one person or a married couple. The bathroom had one sink and was more suited for one person at a time - again, not a problem for a married couple perhaps but tricky with 2 women! Very European in its flavor. So Americans, just know the rooms might be smaller than you are used to, especially for the price.

Charming and top notch at...
Pros: Fifteen Beacon is a beautiful, charming and "warm feeling" hotel. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. The concierge service is simply fantastic: among other things, they booked us the Celtics-Bulls playoff game the day of the game! I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Boston. Finally, the annex restaurant Moo is superb both for dinner and lunch and for amazing breakfasts!
