Boston, Massachusetts – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
Cold and flu season may be coming on strong, but for allergy sufferers the battle against sniffles and watery eyes never ends. Now, XV Beacon is taking up arms against airborne bacteria, becoming the FIRST hotel in Boston to introduce Hypo-Allergenic Guest Rooms for the comfort and consideration of severely allergic guests.
The award-winning luxury boutique address, named #1 business hotel in the U.S. by readers of Travel + Leisure in 2009, recently began employing the ViraTech UV-400 advanced air purification system to clear the air in guest rooms throughout the hotel. Created by UV Flu Technologies of Centerville, Massachusetts, the Vira Tech UV-400 is a breath of fresh air for severely allergic guests. Approved by Edison Testing Laboratories and cleared as a medical device by the FDA, the otherwise inconspicuous air filter kills more than 99% of indoor airborne bacteria while significantly reducing sinus-tickling particles and odors. And that’s nothing to sneeze at.
Upon guest request, XV Beacon will use the Vira Tech UV-400 to complimentary “prep” rooms for one-hour prior to arrival. For guests desiring continuous use of the Vira Tech UV-400 throughout their stay, the hotel levies a $25 fee per day.
From new iPad rentals to pet-friendliness, recently upgraded accommodations to complimentary Lexus sedan service, XV Beacon has always made comfort a priority. With the calendar flipping toward the most-congested time of year, the hotel’s Hypo-Allergenic Guest Rooms are a timely amenity, placing the hotel at the forefront of Boston’s hospitality market.
