PCC is now working with XV Beacon hotel in Boston

Situated in a 1903 Beaux Arts Building that unites cutting-edge technology with Jeffersonian style, XV Beacon is centrally located at 15 Beacon Street. Ideally situated for business and leisure travellers alike, it is set in a historic neighbourhood with quaint brick sidewalks, authentic Federal and Greek Revival row houses and evocative gas-lit streets. It is just steps away from the gold-domed Statehouse, legendary Boston Common and Public Garden and just a few blocks from Faneuil Hall, Quincy Marketplace and the famed shopping of Newbury Street.

XV Beacon has 63 guest rooms, seven on each floor, which are ideally suited for making the most of your stay in Boston. XV Beacon’s rooms are some of the largest in the area for a hotel of its size - the lowest category classic room measures 315 sq ft. Every room in the hotel has a gas fireplace and many of the rooms benefit from four-poster or canopy beds with cashmere throws and Frette linen. The Bromfield one bedroom suites are 900 sq ft and include a separate parlor area with table to accommodate up to 12 people. The Gilbert Stuart suite has two bedrooms and is 1370 sq ft with a separate seating area, a boardroom table accommodating up to 12 people and three bathrooms. All rooms have an entrance from the hallway and overlook historical Beacon Street.

Steeped in history, the hotel occupies the site of the former Bromfield Mansion that was built in 1722 by wealthy Boston merchant Edward Bromfield Jr. It comprises two cast iron stories adorned with gilded shields. The third story features a limestone band, which supports five stories of Roman brick. The ninth and 10th floors are limestone-fluted columns with mosaic inserts capped by an opulent oversized copper cornice.

The present building was originally constructed in 1903 and designed by renowned Boston architect William Gibbons Preston. Architect Patrick Sharkey and interior designer Celeste Cooper, both of Boston, retained as many of the building’s original architectural elements as possible as part of a renovation including the original cage elevator and cast-brass lit railing with brass newel post.

Antiques and modern art continue the theme of bringing the historical past into the future and the classic but contemporary décor bears this out. One of the most unique elements of the hotel is the artwork including works by some of America's most renowned artists that can be found on the walls. Guest rooms display chosen works by Martha Lloyd, Joe Greene, Tony Evanko, and Ben Freeman who were specially commissioned to create pieces for the hotel.  The hotel lobby is dominated by the “Green Dot,” oil on canvas by Russian born post painterly abstractionist Jules Olitskithe whilst the Wine Cellar of hotel restaurant Mooo has a magnificent Roman mosaic depicting two deer amidst flowers, amphorae, and fish dating from the fourth to the fifth century A.D.

The hotel restaurant, Mooo, is a modern steakhouse with an award winning wine list.  Chef/Owner Jamie Mammano uses his culinary expertise to create classic, yet inventive steakhouse dishes and has garnered rave reviews for these. The restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch on Sundays. On the lower level of XV Beacon, guests will find Mooo's private dining room, eponymously named the Wine Cellar. Vaulted ceiling, stone floors and walls lined with a dazzling collection of rare and fine wines.

As well as being ideally located, XV Beacon is a 'Home away from Home' that offers the conveniences and comforts of home. The hotel also offers complimentary in-town Lexus service, complimentary Wi-Fi, iPad rentals, Puravair air purifiers for hypo-allergenic rooms, daily ice delivery, Nespresso machines upon request, complimentary bath salts for use in the Jacuzzi baths, heated towel rails and 24-hour room service (including the complete menu from restaurant Mooo).

Boston has a rich cultural heritage that is one of the key reasons to visit. The Freedom Trail is a particular highlight of Boston’s historical past and provides an introduction to the historical and popular sites of the city. As one of America’s oldest cities there is always something to uncover including Beacon Hill and Back Bay neighbourhoods, the New England Aquarium, Harvard university, the Museum of Fine Arts or a visit to the historic Fenway Park for a Red Sox game.
