How it Ranks: XV Beacon Hotel ranks #3 out of 180 Boston Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: If you're looking for extravagance, then the XV Beacon can certainly oblige. This stunning hotel features mahogany paneling and vibrant red accents. Plus, its perch on the edge of Boston Common within walking distance of the Freedom Trail makes the XV Beacon a favorite among history lovers. Add the hotel's wide variety of amenities — which range from iPad rentals to complimentary car service — and you'll see why recent guests claim that a stay at this charming boutique is nothing short of phenomenal. Plus, the well-appointed accommodations are furnished with antique accents, crisp 400-thread-count Frette linens, working fireplaces and 42-inch flat-screen TVs, while the delectable entrees at restaurant Mooo... earn rave reviews.
