We found all staff at The Boxer to be very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We did have an issue with the air conditioner not working our first night there but staff were very helpful and we were moved to another room the next day. It was a great location to walk and see...

My husband and I stayed at The Boxer at the end of June for our anniversary. We found the location to be very good -- not a far walk from restaurants and attractions -- but not right in the center of it all. All of the rooms are rather "compact" due to the shape of the building. In any case,... More

Having stayed in many hotels of all sizes, this was about the best. The welcome, the atmosphere, the help offered and given. Although a limited menu, so what if they deliver the best of what they offer? Just one tiny comment, my side of the bed did not have a reading light! with that, perfect.

This hotel is steps away from North Station. If taking the train to North Station and going for a game (Celtics, Bruins) this is the perfect hotel for an overnight. Very walkable distance to Quincy Market and the waterfront. It is very near a T stop as well. The staff gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation in the theater district... More

We stayed at the Boxer for 1 night - perfectly situated, near downtown - The room was very nice, a little small, but everything was perfect, very comfortable bed, clean bathroom, amazing crew, specially Luckas at the front desk, who gave us all the informations we needed. We'll go back, for sure !!

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

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
