Located in an awesome spot in the city for walking and exploring, 15 Beacon Hotel is a great find for a vacation stay. It is an upscale hotel that still feels like a Bed and Breakfast. We stayed at 15 Beacon for our wedding anniversary in September 2014 and had the best experience. The special details and customer service made our trip very special.
Steps away from everything. Staff was amazing, rooms are clean and beautiful views. There is some sort of shelter next door but please don't let that stop you from staying here nobody bothered us at all, we came and went at all times of the day and night. The rooms are very modern the only negative was the chair they have in the room, from a designers standpoint it looks good but the whole little sitting area is slightly awkward. They could have used a cuddle couch with a narrow coffee table to warm up the area and give it a more romantic feel, and would be more usable it would also warm up the area and make it a little less sterile.

Hotel staff was exceptional fro check-in to check-out - engaging and helpful in every respect. Room was a bit underwhelming given its cost. Location is very good with easy access to older part of the city, to the Common and Public Gardens, Beacon Hill and to shopping on Newberry and Boylston streets. All are within easy walking distance.
Downtown Boston accommodations are expensive. On top of the room expense, everything else is over-and-above, like valet parking and daily Wi-Fi charges. Also, expect staff to be everywhere with their hand out expecting tips. But we knew enough and expected all this before booking. It is all the price for location, and their location is good. It is close to Boston Common, subway, tours, etc. The only downside was that our room would not cool off enough for sleeping. Overall, we stayed three nights in the lap of luxury and loved it.
We were very impressed from the moment we walked in the door.
Hotel staff greeted us, and assisted with our check-in, which was all computerized.
Room was clean and comfortable.
Restaurant was also very good.
Loved the room, clean but next time could check into a bigger room. For Boston, the rate was great. The staff was exceptionally pleasant, warm and welcoming. I had a conference to attend and the hotel I was to stay out was sold out of rooms, good thing because I wouldn't have found Wyndham. Also when I attended the conference, the hotel the conference was located in was so 'cold', meaning not welcoming at all. Too professional ......Had a great experience at Wyndham. Will stay again.
The location can't be beat. Directly across the street from Faneuil Hall/ Quincy Market, and two blocks to the Aquarium and boats. Restaurants are everywhere. A street market sets up on the sidewalk in front of the hotel, (directly under the front rooms) with fresh fruit and veggies. So it's a fun, busy, active area. The hotel itself has a funky, smallish, trendy lobby, then the rooms surprised us by being quite large, beautifully appointed, and very elegant. Some of the rooms have a cute "Juliet" balcony with French doors and flower baskets. There is even a little dressing room area with a vanity and closet off the bathroom that women will immediately claim as their territory! Nice, upscale (but expensive) restaurant attached. Not much of a bar area but a glass of wine can be gotten and enjoyed easily enough, before heading out on the town. All Boston hotels are expensive but this one was less than similar hotels in the area. The only negative is the same reason it's a positive… it's on a busy street, right next to Faneuil Hall. On a hopping Saturday night, there is definitely some street noise their windows and the balcony doors just can't block out. (Maybe bring earplugs if you are light sleeper and there on a weekend.) But overall, we were very pleased with our decision to stay here and would definitely stay here again.
