Great room, it was small but had everything you would need. Very clean and bed so comfortable. We especially like that we could walk to most attractions. We didnt have a car so it worked out great for us. Friendly staff, they made our stay enjoyable. I would recommend it highly.

Locals seem to refer to this place as the "old Bulfinch" hotel. Whatever the name, Boxer is a stylish and charming hotel. Other reviews have commented on the size of the rooms; however, I traveled alone and stayed in one of the corner rooms. It is really impressive; at the sharp end of the flatiron building, the room is full... More

Great hotel, very conveniently located to historic sites. Super friendly staff at front desk. Rooms clean and cheerful. Breakfast was good but limited. Valet parking was expensive but better than driving in downtown. Discovered Lyft, great deal.

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.
