4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

If you can get an excellent price then staying here is worth it. If prices are not competitive I would choose another location as this hotel is a little out of the way at least a 10 minute walk to any interesting areas. Rooms are small but comfortable and the staff are very obliging and helpful.

Very small rooms and bathroom. Felt it could have been cleaner. Pet friendly hotel so if you dont like dogs, don't stay here. The area surrounding the hotel is a bit run down. Not worth the price we paid.

We stayed in two rooms for a few days this past week. While the hotel is nice inside, the neighborhood surrounding is not really great. The rooms were small, but nicely decorated. A couple of issues: the tub in one of the bathrooms did not drain well, the hotel double authorized my card, and there was a very strong odor... More

Have stayed at a could other Kimpton Hotels and have been impressed with the attention to details. Not so much with this one. Front desk had a hard time recommending a place to eat with my family. Suggested we try a local Korean spot and "let me know how it goes". Room was very small. Had to pay for wifi... More

My wife and I were looking for a weekend getaway in Boston and selected the Onyx Hotel for our base. I got a great rate and when we arrived before check-in time, the room was available, so an extra bonus so we could unpack before wandering the Bunker Hill and wandering around the ships at the Charlestown Navy Yard (which...

This is a great hotel - the rooms are spacious, bright and quirky. Wifi is provided and I had no issues with it at all, unlike at other hotels. It's close to the North End so lots of good restaurants close by. Yoga mats are provided in all rooms, which was great. One of the best things is that they... More

I've been staying in quite a few hotels of late for work and pleasure, and this hotel really made an impression. It truly has style. I can hardly remember most hotel rooms after a week, but ask me in a year and I would still be able to describe my room at Onyx. And the leopard print towelling bathrobes -... More

A charming, quiet hotel in a revitalized residential neighborhood adjacent to the financial district and blocks from Boston's iconic Faneuil Hall and surrounding restaurants. A quick 15-minute ride from Logan, also convenient to Beacon Hill, Cambridge and other essential neighborhoods. Rooms are sizeable and comfortable, firm bed and soft pillows. Upgrade to "penthouse" suites (there are only four) for ultimate... More

This was a perfect location for a lovely stay in Boston. Staff was friendly and very helpful when we asked for suggestions for restaurants or directions.

First time visit to Boston, could not have chosen a better place to stay. The staff are very professional and go above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be.
