Heritage and the arts are both elevated in this luxury boutique hotel

A reverence for history, an appreciation for the arts: Those two passions are evident throughout XV Beacon, a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. The handsome hotel is in a landmark Beaux Arts Building, distinguished by a grand marble staircase, mahogany paneling and original caged-glass elevator. The eclectic art collection features everything from an ancient Roman mosaic in the restaurant’s Wine Cellar to works by famous portraitist Gilbert Stuart and contemporary abstract painter Maggi Brown.
