My boyfriend and I stayed at the Onyx for his birthday. We had an amazing experience. When I booked the hotel I wrote in a memo that we were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday by going to the Celtics game. The lady at the desk was super friendly and even said Happy Birthday to him. Once we got up to our... More

Although the room was on the smaller side, I cannot say enough about the Onyx. The rooms are well appointed. The staff, like every other Kimpton, is superb. From no hassle check in, to dinner advice, to insistence on running out to the store for me to get a forgotten sundry, the professional and friendly staff truly set the hotel... More

I had to travel for work earlier this month and got a great rate at the Onyx. It's perfectly situated close to the city and an easy commute from the airport. Unfortunately, I was ill when I traveled so I wasn't expecting it to be a good trip. I had mentioned to the concierge when I was emailed about my... More

Stayed here with a group of 4 over Thanksgiving weekend. Expected more for the price, room was on the smaller side, price for valet parking was on the high end, and room service missed cleaning our room on the second day. Excellent location and an easy walk to TD Garden, Quincy Market, Little Italy, and more. Enjoyed the complimentary wine... More

We were in Boston for a couple of days in October '14 and stayed at this boutique hotel. It was excellent, the room was luxurious, clean and warm. Staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was great, self service and good quality. We loved the fact that it was near to one of the trolley stops and we... More

I stayed recently at the Onyx in Boston and wanted to offer up my experience for those looking for a cool place to stay while hitting the Boston Scene. This version of the Kimpton Brand is smaller, yet very chic in it's styling. The staff was very courteous and helpful..... I've been to many hotels where the staff seems to... More

Just returned from a 4 night trip to the Onyx 11/20-11/24. Upon check in I requested a room on a high floor and away from the elevator and was cheerfully accommodated. My room was quite small, but very nicely furnished and had a VERY comfortable bed and pillows and a nice bathroom. My view was windows of other rooms a... More

Hello osparki, First off, thanks for spending four days with us! I was happy to read that overall you had a good stay with us while in Boston. I know our rooms tend to be on the small side sometimes, that's mostly due to the city location. I hope you choose to return to us, despite the fact that the... More

Hard to find hotel near the TD Banknorth Garden. $47 to valet the car overnight; cheaper garage nearby but if you're not familiar with driving around Boston, the valet may be your better option. Be warned though that it's going to take the staff at least 1/2 hour to retrieve the vehicle for you. Rooms are small but neat. Good... More
