Seldom do I write reviews but feel this one is necessary and extremely warranted. The Boxer is a great Boston hotel, a great hotel in general for that matter. A very solid choice, you cant go wrong whether there on business or in town for site seeing or a game. TD Garden is literally around the corner, which is perfect... More

We stayed on a higher floor in the Bull Nose of the Flat Iron that was handsomely decorated, very clean, spacious, & quite comfortable with views of Boston. Boxer is steps away from TD Garden & North End. Seven year old delighted to sleep in" My Boston" after seeing Disney's Frozen on Ice, attending party at nearby New England Aquarium.... More

When picking a hotel in Boston we wanted to make sure we found something that was somewhat central, and allowed us to easily get to all the main attractions Boston had to offer. We managed to get a great deal on “The Boxer” through Expedia and so we jumped on it. When we arrived we were surprised at how cool... More

The rooms were big for Boston and well laid out to feel even bigger. I stayed on the courthouse side to enjoy views of the city and beacon hill. It's a great spot for easy access to everything in Boston - walking distance to the parks, across the street from the garden, 4 blocks from Faneuil Hall.

The room was amazing, very close (walked there) to TD Stadium for the Bruins game I attended. the Finch was less than I expected, slow service and o.k. food for a price not worth the quality, I suggest going out to eat at any of the fantastic small Italian restaurants. My toilet was clogged at the start of my stay... More

I spent just one night in this promising hotel and was satisfied with the general service provided. I was checked in by Alec that tried to give his recommendations to me for the restaurants, and also for a quick jump on the 'Freedom Trail'. Notwithstanding Alec best intentions (and difficulties) in finding the Freedom Trail landmarks, I finally got some... More

A friend and I spent the night at The Boxer while she had some medical appointments; the hotel is right near Mass General and other facilities. The room (2 double beds) was cleverly designed and completely comfortable. Using open framed wardrobes and desks makes it possible to provide space for everything without making the room feel crowded.With our room overlooking... More

We wanted to stay downtown after seeing a show in the north end. I am so happy we chose the Boxer! We stayed in a king room on the top floor and had a nice view of the city. There is not a lot of closet space in the room, but it was great for us for a short weekend... More
