Q & A with one of our Team Members

We asked Myriam Jaber, our Front Office Supervisor a couple of questions…

  1. Why do you love Boston?

  2. What do you love most about XV Beacon?

  3. How are you adjusting to the current circumstances with COVID-19, and how has life/or your daily routine changed for you?


Why do you love Boston?

I absolutely love the diversity and rich culture throughout the entire city. I am a huge fan of all of the art museums, especially the Museum of Fine Arts and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. I have visited more times than I can count and will always rave about how wonderful the environment is in both. I absolutely love that we can experience all four seasons in the city – incredibly stunning during Autumn, especially walking along the Esplanade – the colors are to die for and weather is beautiful too! I also really love to try new cuisines. The city offers so many diverse options, it is sometimes impossible to choose! Craving Italian? You will find some of the best restaurants in the North End. Craving seafood? You will have the finest seafood in your life! There is so much history everywhere you look but the modernization brings the city to another level. Boston is such an optimistic city and I will never stop loving it!


What do you love most about XV Beacon?

XV Beacon is honestly one large family. We all work closely and care in ways I have never experienced before. We strive for perfection and I am always so impressed with how well we all work with one another to ensure our guests are taken care. A majority of our guests are loyal because they know that we will treat them like a part of our family which I believe is the best part about working at XV Beacon. I also cannot forget to mention how stunning the hotel is – from appearance in the lobby, to the guest rooms, all the amenities and of course the roof deck (best views of the city).


How are you adjusting to the current circumstances with COVID-19?

Adjusting to the current circumstances with COVID-19 has been a challenge, which I am sure everyone can relate to. I am extremely grateful that I am working and seeing familiar faces, our guests and of course my colleagues. I remember as a team, we would enjoy each other’s company outside of work at our favorite restaurants. I always enjoyed strolling around the city and visiting some of my favorite shops but unfortunately, ‘things to do’ has become very limited lately. I tend to keep myself busy by reading, binge watching New Girl (my absolute favorite show) on Netflix and the occasional home work out, which I definitely need to keep consistent. I miss spending time with my closest friends but FaceTime and a casual lunch or dinner date all at safe distances has kept us sane. As long as we have an optimistic mind set, we will continue to strive and live our lives as best we can!
