A little pricey but nice staff. We went to Boston and NY and it just happened to be my sons birthday. I called a week before to see if the front desk could do anything special for him. They went above and beyond! He was sooo happy!! Got in the room and there were balloons, a happy birthday banner, cookies,... More

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 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

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
