XV Beacon is an elegant, luxury modernist 63-room hotel housed in the turn-of-the-century 10-story Bromfield Mansion Beaux Arts building. Designed by renowned Boston architect William Gibbons Preston, the property features its original cage elevator and cast-brass lit railing, lobby with mahogany walls and fireplace, and rooftop panoramic views of the city.


We sat down with award-winning hotel veteran and XV Beacon General Manager Amy Finsilver to discuss the storied property and unforgettable guest experience.

What draws visitors to Boston?

Visitors are drawn to the city’s rich history, phenomenal sports, amazing universities and healthcare. Wonderful restaurants and museums abound.

What was XV Beacon’s design inspiration and how does it influence guest experience?

We are privately owned by one man whose foresight and tastes are exquisite. He has a love of architecture and history but yearns to be on the forefront of services and technology. XVB is the ultimate blend of the traditional and the modern, artistically blending the rich history of the city with a contemporary influence. The intimate, chic lobby feels like an exclusive club or private residence. The furnishings in each guest room have been custom made and perfectly placed to ensure ease of use and convenience. The quality is superb. This truly is one’s home away from home.

Turning to the guest rooms, how does XV Beacon deliver an element of comfort and familiarity whilst remaining true to the hotel’s experience at large?

From the moment a guest walks through our doors, they are welcomed as if they are a long lost friend. There is a soothing atmosphere of genuine care that envelopes the entire property. Our team takes pride in attention to detail and offers discreet assistance. A sense of ease is reinforced once a guest enters their room, surrounded by an abundance of comfort. Guest room windows allow for a refreshing breeze, a fireplace to warm up to and feature a series of unique, commissioned photographs of Boston/p>

What is your favourite thing to do in Boston?

Boston is truly a walking city. What is so unique is that one sees and feels the rich history of our country entrenched in today’s daily happenings. I love to walk the cobblestone streets of Beacon Hill knowing the historical characters who walked before me. Independent boutiques line Charles Street for wonderful shopping and antiques. I often meander through the North End, our Italian district, where all my senses are invigorated with sights, sounds and scents of amazing restaurants and culture. My love of the water draws me to the Seaport’s vibrant neighbourhoods, where I enjoy strolling along the harbour looking at the boats and breathing in the sea air. Last but not least, it is tremendous fun to attend a game of one of our champion sports teams, whether it be the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics or New England Patriots, it is always a highlight of my week.

Which of XV Beacon’s services can’t be missed?

Our sleep and bath experience offerings are a dream. From roaring fireplaces in each guest room and a pillow menu for the ultimate rest to whirlpool tubs with a selection of bath salts and essentials oils to fit one’s mood and heated towel racks to warm Frette towels, you’re guaranteed to enjoy an incredible self-care experience in the comfort of your own room. Plus, returning guests receive a luxuriously cosy monogrammed Frette robes to call their own.

How does Frette fit into guest experience at XV Beacon? What makes our two brands such a natural fit?

We both strive to deliver soothing, understated comfort whilst pursuing perfection and best in class craftsmanship, quality and service

Where is your favourite place at XV Beacon to enjoy a private moment?

Our roof deck is the perfect place to embrace the sun and take in the exceptional city views. For a very different experience, I also love our reserve wine cellar; peaceful, cool and quiet while presenting the rich history of the building. If our bottles could talk...

To experience Boston like a local, where should guests visit?

Belly up to the bar at one of Boston’s many Irish Pubs or Sports Bars, or bike along the Charles River.

Can you share the most unique experience the team has crafted for a guest?

There is an endless list of incredible experiences we’ve crafted for our guests. From marriage proposals on the roof deck with fireworks to transforming a guest room to have a Caribbean island feel after a guest’s storm-induced vacation cancellation, there’s no detail too small for the team to make exceptional.
