We recently stayed at the Boxer for a family wedding event. The hotel has a strict check-in policy of 3pm. If you arrive early don't expect to check in early. They will hold your luggage if you want to hit the sights. There is a very small lobby with limited seating and a restaurant/bar that is not open over the... More

The Boxer Hotel in Boston is not the most luxurious of options, but for us it was the perfect fit. In fact we liked it more with each night. It is a relatively small boutique hotel with clean and spacious rooms within a mile of Boston Common, but just far enough from the hustle that one can take their first... More

The rooms were excellent, just a bit small, but the staff was so friendly and accommodating they made our long weekend very enjoyable. The hotel was in a great location, and the staff was excellent. Great price for a great hotel.

Arrived at the hotel a half hour before check-in and was met by very friendly and welcoming front desk staff. Our room was already ready so we were able to check-in a half hour early and were given city map and recommendations on restaurants. The room was a good size, we were on the second floor so not a great... More

The purpose of our trip was to attend a concert at the TD Garden, and the Garden is literally right around the corner from the Boxer.

Luckas and Calvin are outstanding employees committed to top notch customer service. Can't wait to go back to Boston and stay here. Traveling for business can be exhausting, but coming back to the Boxer after a long day feels familiar and like you are coming back to chat with friends. - Cassie
