XV Beacon
Boston, Massachusetts

Sure, all New Year’s Eve revelers are invited to watch Boston’s First Night fireworks on December 31, but it’s not every year you have the chance to view them from a lofty vantage point. The ultra-luxe XV Beacon invites guests to kick back on the hotel’s private deck during the display. A New Year’s Eve stay also includes a bottle of champagne and a late check out at 2 p.m.

Rooms start at $610 per night with additional nights at 20 percent off the hotel’s best available rate.
