I stayed for two nights having reserved the hotel on Hotwire. Very friendly and accommodating staff! I really got the feeling that the staff would do whatever it takes to make me happy. I love this hotel and will be back. Very clean, comfortable bed, 24 hour room service, great location, what is there not to like?

We recently stayed at the lovely Onyx hotel in beautiful Boston. One extremely helpful employee we send our most sincere thanks to is Brian! He went out of his way to make our stay not only pleasant he gave us a room upgrade. The close proximity to the North End and other Boston highlights make this hotel a walkable location... More

We love Kimpton hotels. They have perfected the hip, casual luxury brand. This hotel is very close to TD Garden, and walking distance to the North End and Quincy Marketplace areas. The lobby is small, but they always have beverages like coffee, iced tea, energy bars (in the a.m.) and fruit-infused water - along with newspapers and food and drink... More

Just wanted to thank the nice staff at the Onyx Hotel in Boston for making my first visit to Beantown a good one. First off on the day of arrival the staff was great in giving me instructions on how to get around town. Then the central location to the TD Garden and a quick walk to North Station Quincy... More

If you read all our reviews on our weekend trip to Boston, you will see a theme. Lots of great places but small details drop the ratings down a bit. The Onyx is in a great location, just a block from TD Garden (we were here to see U2), just another block to the North End and 2-3 blocks from... More

We stayed here for one short night on our last night in Boston. I wish we could've stayed longer! The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful, suggesting nearby vegetarian dining options that we could try, and remembering us the next day to ask how our dinner was! The rooms are quite small, but super cozy and all that... More

Perfectly situated for visiting Boston as a tourist with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are very much on the small side (at least the two we saw), but comfortable with decent air conditioning. We changed room shortly after checking in as the Wi-Fi was weak in the room originally assigned to us. The next was fine. Breakfast was... More

Stayed two nights at the Onyx for the U2 show. The hotel was a very short walk (less than a minute) to the Garden. Fun bars and local restaurants on Portland Street and just around the corner. So many other things to see and places to eat nearby. North Station subway stop was just a three minute walk and a... More

We picked this hotel for its proximity to the TD Garden since we were in Boston for the U2 concert and the location was perfect. We got there in less than half an hour from the airport and that was during rush hour (it took less than 15 minutes on our way out with no traffic). The TD Garden is... More

We stayed at the Onyx for 2 nights. The rooms are quite spectacular when you walk into them, however they are unworkable for tourists. There is only one case stand (most rooms have two guests) and there is no where else for the second case. There is an honour bar but no room for any personal purchases you may want... More
