I knew this would be a great stay the moment I walked into the Onyx. Kayla at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. My room was very comfortable and bed made it east to get a good nights sleep. Liked the nightly wine reception too. I also got a brownie and bottle of wine delivered to my room... More

Had another great Kimpton experience in Boston. We were disappointed that Nine Zero was booked so we decided to give the Onyx a try. Of course we were not disappointed. My boyfriend is an Kimpton In Touch member and much to our delight we were upgraded to the Penthouse floor. YAY! The hotel has been recently renovated and is absolutely... More

I arrived in Boston for business late at night and tired. The front desk staff was so nice and accommodating and made sure I got checked in quickly and even baked me one of their fantastic chocolate chip cookies and brought it to my room! The decor of the room is super cute with a WICKED SMAHT pillow that made... More

My son and I stayed here for one evening to see a Bruins game. The room was excellent, however the service was fantastic, they treated my son like a rock star! The attention to value added service and enhanced experience was greatly appreciated. We will be back. Also a very good place to stay if catching an event at the... More

Went to Boston for a Celtics game with a friend and chose the Onyx for its location only. Prior to this visit I never stayed at a Kimpton hotel, so did not know what to expect. We pulled up the valet was right there, he pointed us in the right direction and set up our valet card. The people at... More

This was not my first choice hotel. Normally when I visit Boston I try to stay at the Hotel Marlowe, which is another Kimpton, but they happened to be sold out for one of the nights I needed. I have stayed at the Marlowe a few times and everything has always been great. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for... More

I like the Onyx - it's intimate, quiet, and close to North End and Beacon Hill. It's trendy, pet friendly, with nice furnishings and a bit fun. On previous stays (annual visits for friend's birthday) we were made to feel really special. Complimentary wine / cookies, really friendly reception at reception, etc. This stay was less so - it felt... More

The Onyx Boston was in a good location and is within walking distance of many attractions and sites. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The Hotel itself was a little odd for my taste. The room was decorated with very different colored nontraditional furniture. The room was very small with very little space to store our luggage. The vibe... More
