The Boxer Hotel is newly renovated and it definitely shows. The room had a very industrial and quaint feel to it. Location was central to TD garden and other tourist spots. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My only complaint was the bedsheets were thin and in the middle of the night it got really cold. But other than... More

This is our fourth time staying at The Boxer, and again we were so pleased with this hotel. The location is great, the staff helpful, and rooms may be on the small side but they are spotless and have everything you need. We stay in Boston often and The Boxer is always on the top of our list of hotels.... More

I truly enjoyed our stay at Boston Boxer hotel. I often stay at boutique hotels and the service here is the best I have experienced! The rooms are small but very comfortable. Our bathroom is quite large for the size of the room. It is clean, comfortable, well appointed. The staff is excellent! So nice and so helpful!

My husband and I stayed at The Boxer while attending The Frozen Four in April. The location to the TD Garden was perfect(only a few blocks away). We did a lot of sight-seeing and were able to walk everywhere(even though there is a train station within the TD Gardens). We love to run and found the Esplanda a perfect place... More

I stayed here with my family and everyone really loved it. It is a small hotel with relatively small rooms but very nice. My wife was impressed with some brand of fancy toiletry products; they did smell pretty good. It is a block or two away from the TD Garden and very close to the Freedom trail. We walked everywhere...
