We stayed for one night at the Onyx hotel with friends. We booked two rooms. Check in was easy. The rooms were ready early (one couple was there early).The rooms were small for other chain hotels, but comfortable for two. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The bathroom was a bit dark. We were in a corner room on the 7th floor. We weren't bothered by the city noises but think our room was right by the staff closet. The noise in the morning was terrible (doors slamming, things banging into the walls, loud conversations between staff in the hallway). This was a disappointing for us as part of the joy of a day off and hotel stay is sleeping in late and sleeping was impossible with the noise. Our friends, in a room on another floor/location did not have the same issue. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bar was ok for hanging out briefly and meeting up. The bartender had a few catch phrases that he said over and over and over again. it became humorous. The bartender mentioned that they are going to be doing some construction in the near future and expect the bar to be closed for a few weeks (I'm not sure when, but if this is important to you, you may want to check). The location was decent. Great for game at the TD Gardens. We walked the city. It is a long walk but not impossible walk to many area attractions. The valet parking is $45 per night. I think the lot is some distance away from the hotel. It takes about 30 minutes to get your car. They warn you of this when you check in. The staff is young, but very pleasant and helpful and friendly. The hotel appeared to be pet friendly (although we weren't traveling with a pet this time) with a dog bowl and sign welcoming the pet guests by name.
