1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I arrived at the hotel late at night after flight from Europe and after messing around the reception told me they can not find my reservation. Had a confirmation number but was told hotel was full. Receptionist pretended to find a hotel but was constantly running behind doors and did not do anything helpful. I finally had to leave and... More

I loved my stay here...felt safe, room was clean and comfortable and they were helpful directing me to places I wanted to go given my short time to explore. Will have to agree that the room was small, but as a solo traveller, it was no problem. The doorman was very helpful with my luggage and calling a taxi for... More

After much research my friend and I decided to stay at The Boxer and we were so pleased we chose it. The decor is contemporary and really nicely done and the beds (two doubles) were very comfortable. Staff were pleasant and friendly. I would certainly stay here again but have one small criticism; although I appreciate that the the breakfast... More

It is almost impossible to get around the bed in that room, it's so small, and everything else in the room is cramped directly around the bed. The lobby is also small and not a place you can "branch out". The hotel restaurant serves ok overpriced food. Everything was in working order and very clean. Also the location was central... More

Not bad but a bit pricey for what you get. Not more then typical for Boston but expected a bit more. Clean rooms and friendly staff but the AC in our room was inconsistent. Would stay here again if could find some discounts off the price.

From the moment that we arrived the staff were completely helpful and delightful. The room was very nice and we said that this is a place where we would return. Also excellently located. Walking distance to Union Oyster House and very close to the Government Center.

My husband and I recently visited the boxer and had a lovely time. The location was pretty central and the room was clean and beautifully decorated. It was the most comfortable bed! The staff was cheery and helpful. The rooms were smaller but we weren't there for the hotel but for the city. The T is located close to the... More

I very much enjoyed this hotel. The food was great, though priced accordingly. The rooms were comfy and clean. The cocktails (especially the sangria) were delish. All the staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming. Definitely stay there again.

Overall very nice place. Room 807 is quite small but fine for one person. Excellent bed and pillows. Decent shower strength. Keurig coffee maker in room. Strong wifi, but you have to resubscribe every 24 hours. Kay at front desk very friendly and helpful. Not much space to hang clothes, and no luggage stand. Very good full breakfast. Nice bar....

A charming boutique hotel that won't disappoint. Sometimes boutique is a word that conjures up a hotel that is not so great. But this hotel has it all: location, efficient and friendly staff, good breakfast, nice lounge, and a room, although small, fully equipped.
