We arrived at Onyx Hotel at around 4 am due to a 3 hour delay leaving our hometown. It was our first time staying there so we did not know what to expect. Upon arriving we were unsure of the area, but decided to give it a shot. And boy are we glad we did! It was located about 1/2... More

We stayed here for my Birthday. We got a great deal on the room.We arrived way before check in. The staff was very friendly and held our luggage so we take a short ride over to Newbury street to shop. We came back in time for wine hour. The wine was delicious and we met other travelers. We had a... More

We discovered Onyx for the first time, a bit by chance. We decided on a last minute family weekend getaway to Boston and after a few hesitations, decided that Onyx was quite central to where we wanted to stay (5 minutes walk to Hanover street, Faneuil Hall). Well, location is not only outstanding, but the service we received was equally... More

Our travel to Boston was a brief one, but during our stay we were very happy with our selection of the Onyx hotel. Although it was a bit on the expensive side, it was worth the money in convenience to main attractions, and also the newness & cleanliness of the facility which was great! We enjoyed the size and style... More

I'm a big fan of the Kimpton hotels, I have stayed at the Nine-Zero hotel in Boston a couple of times and liked it very much. This time I chose the Onyx because my meetings were in that corner of Boston. And they managed to exceed my expectations again. First of all, all the basics were covered: the room was... More

We travelled in April to Boston & stayed in the Onyx Hotel. 2 Adults & 2 teens - room was comfortable & we had free wi-fi (you have to ask at the desk for code). Although at first we thought the hotel location seemed out of the way when we started to venture out we found all the attractions of... More

Good location. Walkable distance from main attractions. Close to metro station. Our room was comfy and nicely decorated but a little bit noisy. We stayed on the 6th floor (room 306) next the elevators and I could hear them all night long. Based on my previous experience at Kimpton Hotels, breakfast is not impressive. Last time in S. Francisco the... More
