An warm and friendly welcome from the staff at The Boxer Boston. All staff were excellent, particularly "Calvin Cherry"who never seemed to be off duty, and was always around to help and advise. Whilst sitting in the bar you can clearly see all customers are treated in the same amazing way and nothing ever seems to be too difficult. Rooms... More

We booked a room here last minute and couldn't have been happier. The front desk staff were very friendly and check in only took a minute or two. The hotel is clean and well decorated. The room while a little small was excellent! They certainly know how to make a small room work. The bed was comfortable, the shower was... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Boxer. This boutique hotel has been recently refurbished, the rooms are of a generous size, as are the bathrooms. The toiletries in the bathrooms are French, l'Occitane. We had breakfasts in the hotel every morning and they were excellent. A special mention needs to be made about Calvin on... More

Great boutique hotel with superb service. The rooms are a little small but so nicely designed and appointed that you really don't care. Staff was friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the North End and Fanueil Hall Marketplace, and around the corner from TD Boston Gardens. Location was terrific for us. Will definitely stay there again when next in Boston.

The Boxer Hotel is a must for anyone looking for a true Boston experience. The hotel is located within the heart of Boston and is close to everything! The employees and management at the Boxer are world class. Alec and Kenneth are fantastic. Best service I have had in a hotel. They truly care about your Boston experience and do... More

I stayed one night and was extremely pleased with the Boxer. The rooms were a little tight, but easily manageable for one night (after an hour or two you don't seem to notice). The tight aspect is easily overlooked when you see the character and personality put into each room. The room was very clean and well put-together, with even... More

I travel a lot for work and can live out of hotels for a week at a time. There are certain things that stand out when staying at hotel that make it that much sweeter such as the staff (service), location, attention to details and decor/atmosphere. The Boxer certainly scored an A+ in all areas. I was immediately drawn to... More

Great little boutique hotel - modern design, super clean, and amazing staff. Great location within walking distance of North End restaurants and around the corner subway access. The rooms are very small (similar to NYC hotels), but very comfortable and bright. Highly recommended
