My husband and I stayed at the Boxer on a Friday night because we were going to the Garth Brooks concert at the Garden. We had a military rate and stayed in a delux king room. Room 908- they said it was one of their best rooms, but I don't know if they say that to everybody. It was very... More

We stayed at the Boxer Boston over Martin Luther King weekend. We had a junior suite room which was rather small but compared to our two other friends room ours was huge. You really only sleep and shower in the room so it wasn't that big of a deal. The buffet breakfast was only scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, bacon, sausage... More

My husband and I stayed at The Boxer for four nights in December, our first trip to Boston. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, the bar/restaurant was excellent (Finch) and the location was fantastic. Only a short walk to the downtown area of Boston incl Faneuil Hall and Boston Common, and very close to the train station. There was... More

Great location, clean, and friendly staff. * Location: About a 3 minute walk to TD Garden. 3-5 Minute walk to the parking garage. And minutes from tons of restaurants & bars. * Parking: They have valet parking for $45 or... More

Convenient location and friendly staff-that's about it. Arriving at 3:45PM, the room was not ready yet (check in is 3PM). Since there is only one elevator, at time there was a substantial wait going up/down. The room was clean and decorated nicely but you couldn't change your mind in there. Somewhat cramped. The bathroom was even more cramped (the shower... More

If you want to be right in the center of the hustle and bustle of the city, yet feel like you're in the comfort of your own home, then The Boxer is for you. Rooms are small but clean and well furnished- each nook and cranny used to maximize space and comfort. The staff make you feel like their only... More

I stayed at The Boxer around Halloween weekend and though it was very rainy and cold, I also packed the wrong things for my trip to Boston. I came to Boston to write an article about the history of the city for my travel blog. A little rain didn't hinder any one of my plans. Yes it was cold but... More

Stayed here for one night over Thanksgiving on a deal with Hotel tonight at $7 for the night on Black Friday. The rooms are small but newly decorated and very upscale with an industrial feel. Everything is well laid out and clean. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating with questions. We did have an issue with the valet as we... More

We stayed in The Boxer for two days over Christmas and had a wonderful experience! The hotel has been recently refurbished and I thought the décor is lovely, with a very nice reception and bar area and lovely clean and comfortable rooms with excellent facilities, as well as a very nice fitness centre. The service was excellent - the staff... More

We stayed two nights in Boston for a Bruins Game and to meet friends in the North End for dinner. Hotel was perfect for our stay. The room was small and tidy which we appreciated. Staff was very nice and location was perfect. We did valet which was pricy but convenient. We also wanted to try a different hotel than... More
