My partner and I stayed at The Boxer for two nights. When booking the reviews were mixed and therefore we did not know exactly what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience from the checking in to checking out. The hotel is located within minutes of North station and we were able to walk to the hotel with... More

If you are looking for a cool boutique hotel in Boston, Boxer is it. Service was impeccable from the front desk (Thanks Gabriel) all the way through room service. The bar is cool and laid back, great for a drink right after a long day at work. Tiffany was working the bar and was a perfect to chat with before... More

My family and I were planning a holiday in the US when my husband stumbled upon the Boxer's website. It looked like a great little boutique hotel with a personal feel. Having stayed in similarly branded hotels (eg the Ace) we decided to give the Boxer a try. We found the experience pretty disappointing & too expensive for what turned... More

We were there for two nights for a family members surgery at Mass General. The front desk staff as well as the valet were absolutely wonderful. I had to wait for a ride after check out as I was the only one from out of state and the front desk brought me coffee while I waited. Bartender was wonderful.

I have had two very poor experiences with the Boxer hotel but due to managements response to my original encounter decided to hold my judgement until now. I had not heard of the Boxer Hotel until November of 2013 when I received an e-mail from Groupon advising that there was a special on rooms at the Boxer. It seemed interesting... More

Stayed at The Boxer Boston 7/22-7/29/2014. In general, their staff members were friendly & helpful. There was one situation that dampened the otherwise nice experience, and that was on our final night – we returned to our room the evening of 7/28/2014 to find that our room had not been serviced at all… The bed that still had sand in...

Well-run boutique hotel, well located in the heart of Boston with walking access to most of the interesting spots including the North End, USS Constitution and Charlestown. The staff are user friendly and the breakfast and coffee are excellent. If you're on gov't travel breakfast is included.

Stayed here for one night to visit my grandson. This hotel is newly remodeled/redecorated. The lobby is very clean and has a restaurant just off it. I did not have an opportunity to use the restaurant but it looked very nice. My room was small; bath small but perfectly fine. Very clean, comfortable bed, nice amenities. The bathroom had a... More

We are staying in Boston for just two nights and wanted a good hotel for a good value and centrally located. The Boxer is perfect. The rooms are very modern and sleek. Like other reviewers mentioned, they are on the small side. But we are here to see the sights, not sit in a room. My daughter, husband and I... More

BE CAREFUL staying at this hotel. I was in a situation with friends and we got stuck in the elevator. Rather than contacting an Engineer or Authorities, the maintenance personnel tried to pry the doors open with bolt cutters and screw drivers. We were then force to crawl out through a small space under our own strength, some ripping their... More
