3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel does not allow for early check ins. Even if they have a room ready, they won't check anyone in until all rooms are ready. This is the first time I have ever heard of such a ridiculous practice. Rooms are fairly spacious but strange use of space as they don't really flow well. Awkward 'closet' to hang things.... More

I booked my stay at the Boxer purely on price and location. During my stay I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. Everyone smiles at you and says hello - that goes a long way. They go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as can be. In particular the Guest Service Agent, Fred... More

I booked on hotels.com so I got a good deal. We were staying over for a concert at the Garden. Everyone was extremely friendly. The room was small as others said but we honestly don't need much room as a couple and if you're planning on spending that much time in your room while in an awesome city like Boston... More

The staff is also willing to help at any time and what is also important is the fact that is a... More

When the sun hit the wall it looked a... More

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
