Boston hotel ranked second best in United States

BOSTON (WHDH) - A hotel in Boston has earned high praise from a world-renowned travel magazine.

Conde Nast Traveler recently published the results of its 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards survey, which ranked the top 10 hotels in the United States.

The XV Beacon on 15 Beacon St. in Boston was ranked the second-best hotel, according to the list.

“The chic, intimate modernist interiors of this hotel in Beacon Hill contrast with the exterior—a turn-of-the-century, ten-story Beaux Arts building of iron, limestone, and brick, capped with a copper cornice. The lobby has an original cage elevator, while individually designed rooms in taupes, creams, and espressos come with fireplaces, mahogany built-in cupboards, and contemporary canopied beds. The steak house Mooo… has a vaulted-ceilinged private dining room in the wine cellar. Take advantage of the fleet of chauffeured Lexuses for complimentary trips around downtown Boston,” the magazine said of the hotel.

Baltimore’s Sagamore Pendry, which sits on the harbor in the city’s historic Fell’s Point section, was the only hotel ranked ahead of XV Beacon.

The full ranking is as followed:

10. Viceroy Chicago

9. Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt (Austin, Texas)

8. The Hermosa Inn (Paradise Valley, Arizona)

7. 1 Hotel South Beach (Miami Beach, Florida)

6. Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills (Los Angeles, California)

5. Faena Hotel Miami Beach (Miami Beach, Florida)

3. The Chatwal, A Luxury Collection Hotel, New York City (New York, New York)
