Whether Boston is in your blood or you are Boston outsider looking to take in this Revolutionary city, a weekend retreat at XV Beacon will make you fall in love with every step of America’s Walking City. XV Beacon is a premier boutique hotel nestled into the hills of the cozy luxury of Beacon Hill, steps from the gold dome of the State House and the lush green of the Boston Common and Public Gardens. The hotel features one of the city’s best steak houses, aptly named Mooo…; private dining in the Wine Cellar, with the city’s greatest selection of top quality wines from around the world; as well as a chance to bring cocktails up to the lush tranquility of their roof top deck, boasting beautiful vistas of the city below.
The hotel offers a bevy of packaged retreats including their Linger Longer, Summer Escape and Bed & Breakfast for Two packages. One of our personal favorites is the VIP at the Museum of Fine Arts which includes an overnight stay in one of their amazingly comfort-filled rooms (you’ll never miss your bed at home), breakfast for two, transportation to the museum in the hotel’s chauffeur driven Lexus and VIP passes to the Museum of Fine Arts, perhaps one of the most fascinating and diverse art museums in the world. Be sure to find your way to the Egyptian artifacts and the Impressionistic art, particularly the Monet original paintings, as you get lost in the remarkable pieces displayed throughout the museum’s marbled hallways.
If you are looking to capture (or re-capture) the romance, the Romance on the Hill package is a page out of the Romance 101 handbook. Enjoy an overnight stay in one of their well appointed rooms (think waterfall showers and gas lit fireplaces as square one), a bottle of champagne, white rose petal turndown service, chocolate covered strawberries, and, perhaps the most convenient feature, 2PM late check out. And, if you need additional help unwinding, a couple’s massage is also available.
A weekend at XV Beacon will surely be an experience you will wish to re-live again and again.
