The Boxer Hotel was the first place we stayed in Boston and it was everything we had hoped for. The location was within walking distance to many different restaurants and attractions like the Garden. The staff was extremely helpful, welcoming and positive. Definitely recommend it!

We had a group of seven people, traveling on business from Chicago, stay at The Boxer Boston. Everyone of us agreed that it was the PERFECT place to stay. Everything about our stay was excellent. The location of the hotel was great. It took us about nine minutes in an Uber to get from the airport. We were working at... More

The Boxer was a wonderful hotel at a great value! The front desk was so hospitable and the staff were amazingly courteous and helpful. We had delicious drinks at the bar our first night and the bartender was delightful to talk to. We even tried one of his signature drinks and it was delicious. He also served us breakfast the...

Front desk service was excellent: e.g. Made reservation for us at an Italian restaurant. The reservation seemed to have had a certain authority at the restaurant. We were treated differently in the busiest hour. The room was not the one I had thought based on the information from booking.com. The breakfast buffet was not that great and it only opened... More

Conveniently located close to the airport (about 15 minutes' drive but you don't hear the planes!) and to the Faneuil Hall shopping and restaurant area, the Boxer is a lovely boutique hotel, nicely but also pragmatically decorated (our room was small but the hanging space was well thought-through for instance). We loved the king-size bed. There are many amenities with... More

The Boxer is a unique boutique hotel with first class amenities. Arrival experience was made special by Jeffrey, the valet. Great guy. We loved our room and the loft feel. It was plenty big and I really don't understand people who complained about room size, unless they were very large. We were very

My husband surprised me with a two-night stay when we arrived for our week-long vacation in the Boston area, and it was a delight. It was a perfect mix of quaint with elegant updates, and the curving corridors made for interesting architecture and room configurations. The room was well appointed, and the bed was the most comfortable upon which we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Boxer. Our room was small, but that is in keeping with the charm of an old hotel....that has been fully brought up to date. The location is wonderful, just between 2 main train/subway stations and within a block of the Boston Garden. I would recommend this hotel without any reservations at all. A... More
