I stayed at the Boxer while attending an event at TD Garden and the proximity can't be beat--just a five minute walk. That said, the area immediately surrounding the hotel is a bit sketchy and deserted at night. The hotel is new and clean and has a fabulous front desk staff who are willing to do whatever it takes to make their guests happy. But I have to say the rooms are rather small and dark, considering the room rates. I did have a nice package which was $149/night for a Deluxe Double plus parking and breakfast. I didn't have a car, but the inclusion of parking makes this a good deal. The breakfast selection was limited, but fine. Though, the coffee was awful. Service in The Finch restaurant was every bit as good as that at the front desk.
A while back, a reviewer commented about the hazard of the edges of the bed's box spring jutting out at the corners. Management commented that this issue was being addressed. I saw no indication that the problem had been alleviated and banged my legs quite a few times while traversing the rather tiny room. I also did not care for the multi-purpose piece of furniture which included a bar for hanging clothes. The bar was placed too low and it was impossible to hang one's clothes without wrinkling them at the bottom. There is a shade and curtains on the windows and the chains to operate them were located next to the far side of one of the beds. The only way to access the chain was to crawl over the bed. The problem would have been avoided if the chains were merely placed on the other, easily accessible side of the window! Also, the bathroom was way too dark. My general impression is that whoever designed the room interiors did so without regard to guest comfort.
I expect to return to Boston in the near future and in all honesty, am undecided as to whether I'd stay at the Boxer.
