“Great gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This hotel is great in providing wonderful accommodations. I booked a Junior Suite to see KOL concert and was in love with this hotel. This hotel offered a great rates for since we were attending the concert at TD Garden which is only a few blocks away and located within several restaurants and bars all within walking distance.

The details to the room were well thought out including a Keurig coffee maker, full length mirrors, and outlets built within the night stands for convenience. The bathroom had a good size counter and was well supplied with towels, blow-dryer, and toiletries. The bed was king size plus more!!!!

After traveling from New York and faced with excessive traffic, the staff upon check in was friendly and accommodating to our rush, as we were late to the concert. After the concert and bar hopping, the staff was also great with assisting in locating a pizza delivery at 2am not to mention they were in great spirits at 2am as well.

Valet parking was effortless and worth it since parking is extremely limited.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will be staying again this summer.

Room Tip: suite 510 was home away from home!

We stayed there when we were going to a game at TD Garden and it was perfect. It was a really good deal and a nice room with lots of little touches that made it special. The only down side was breakfast - there was only one waitress for the whole restaurant and there was not coffee available if you did not want to wait to be served for breakfast. The front desk staff was friendly and very responsive. We would defiantly stay there again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Front desk personnel were great - very helpful and friendly. Only 1 (slow) elevator in the hotel used by guests and hotel employees...think housekeeping and engineering carts. Room was large. Lots of hallway noise, very harsh fluorescent lighting in room and hallways, tiniest bathroom sink I have ever seen. The light from clock shines like a beacon in the room so if you need dark, or even mostly dark when you're sleeping, you're going to either cover it up or unplug it. Mounting of TV is awkward so you can only see without unobstructed view if you are situated 'just so' on the bed.

I have been missing The Boxer since we were there for 4 nights from 13. of february. I loved the room wanted to take the bed with me home. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet parking was brilliant. it is always going to be expensive to have a car downtown Boston so to have to pay 10-11 dollars more for valet parking than self parking and being able to take the car in and out is much more convenient than self parking. The location is really good. either for walking or driving.
So I have nothing but praise for this hotel.
The complimentary apples were a good start every morning.
Thanks a lot The Boxer

Great location, a very short walk to the subway and my girlfriend and I had no issues getting back to the Boxer every night. Amazing staff, room was small but it was really clean and was exactly what we needed. Free WiFi was nice as well.

Great service from the start from Serena st the front desk. It's a stone's throw from the garden and fannieul hall. Nice service overall without being inundated with service. Great food and my kids loved the bunk beds. Complimentary apples when checking out was a nice touch reasonably price and a hidden gem.

Wow, the reboot of the former Bulfinch Hotel is excellent! The rooms have been completely redone & the "boxer" touches include interesting nods w/boxer dogs, boxing gloves, and more.

The staff at the front desk was very helpful in terms of providing orientation to the area and also some great restaurant recommendations and the like. As they say, it's close to the good stuff (the North End, multiple T stations, a short walk to the TD Garden, etc)

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone and it's a great home base for exploring Boston!
