I stayed here with a friend on a recent trip to Boston. We had the Deluxe Double on the 9th floor. The rooms had great style but were extremely tiny. We had 2 double beds, one fit right up against the window. The views are not great. I had read to ask for a higher floor for better views -... More

Very stylish and modern rooms, although a little small. And we had a room by the elevators and could hear everyone coming and going thru the night. Very helpful, fast and friendly staff at front desk. Great location, close to nice restaurants .

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.

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
