XV Beacon

XV Beacon

*****

From the moment you’re greeted by the brass-buttoned bellhop by the door, you can tell that XV Beacon takes its traditional values seriously. Set in a peaceful, leafy stretch of Boston’s historic centre, this classic hotel hides original cage elevators, art deco furnishings and impeccably friendly service behind a beautiful Beaux Arts façade. Whatever you do, don’t miss the wine list…

Highlights:

  • Devoted VIP service, with free use of the hotel’s driver (and his Lexus)

  • Fabulous steak and seafood and a mind-bogglingly extensive wine list

  • Central location seconds from beautiful Boston Common

In the know

Also need to know:

Dogs are welcome; the hotel asks only that guests sign a pet's letter and donate to charity (optional). XV Beacon offers all its guests a Lexus chauffeur service around town, as well as a set of personalised business cards for use during their stay.Rather than the conventional ‘do not disturb’ door hangers, XV Beacon has opted for a much more civilised system of deterring unwelcome intrusions – a little dial by the doorway can be set to ‘privacy’, ‘service’ or ‘off’ with a twist of your wrist.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Romantic weekend getaways tend to have a minimum requirement: that two people go on them. Imagine my horror then, when, with bags packed in readiness for our weekend at XV Beacon in Boston, Mr Smith announced he was too ill to travel. Obviously, I was livid. But after a couple of minutes of incandescent rage, I began to see his point. You can’t stay cross at someone with streaming, bloodshot eyes and a voice that lies somewhere between Darth Vader and Kermit the Frog for long. Leaving him with a family-sized box of Lemsip and a couple of bottles of Lucozade on the bedside table, I headed out

Dining information

Restaurant:

Mooo may be a steakhouse by vocation, but that doesn’t prevent it offering up a fantastic selection of lobster, stone crab and oysters in its warm mushroom-toned interior. Private dining can be arranged in the Wine Cellar, a vaulted chamber built around the foundations of a 1722 mansion and featuring a 2000-year-old Roman mosaic.

Top table:

Some of the tables in Moo feature high-backed chairs for two to four. Grab one of these if you want extra privacy. Of course, for total seclusion, you can book an ultra-romantic private dining session in the Wine Cellar.

Last orders:

Breakfast, 7–10.30am; lunch, 11.30am–2pm; dinner, 5.30pm–10pm. The Mooo bar mixes its last martini at 11.30pm.

Room service:

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in restaurant hours and there’s an all-day menu that can be ordered at any time.

Hotel bar:

Whether you fancy a $17,000 1876 Château d’Yquem, a bottle of Hedisieck bubbly plucked from the wreckage of a Swedish schooner at the bottom of the Baltic in 1907 (a more modest $15,000), or a more economy tipple, lively, jazzy Moo Bar can deliver.
