This hotel is nicely located a couple of minutes walk from Metro north station and about 10 mins walk to Quincy market. There are bars/restaurants and small super market next to this hotel, very convenient. I had a room with king size bed but the room is rather small though this is my first trip to Boston, nothing to compare... More

This hotel was in a good location for going to the north end. Just a short walk and you will be filling your belly with something delicious from the restaurants and bakeries. The room was very nice, on the smallish side, but it is in a city and that is not a shock. The rooms and common areas were very... More

Hotel, briefly, has smallish rooms totally in line with the price point with modern decor with a CB2 vibe, a nice fully-stocked snack and minibar. Everything was clean and functional. I have stayed here a couple times for work. I'm writing this review because I left my ipad in my hotel room a couple months ago but because of a... More

We stayed one night at the Onyx and there were pros and cons. The pros were the location was great and it was easy to drive to and valet parking made it easier. ($47). The staff was pleasant and room was ready early. Cons: the elevator and halls were dirty and desperately needed vacuuming. The valet to get your car... More

Lovely, small boutique hotel. Stayed 1 night to attend concert at TD Garden. Room with 2 double beds is small, but nice. Stocked mini bar in room and snacks if interested. The location is perfect for Garden events! Literally less than a 5 minute walk. Close to everything!

I stayed for two nights for a business trip. The service on check-in was great and the room seemed cute, although small. That's where my positive experience ends. I found two bed bugs the morning after the first night of my stay. I laid my clothes out on the bed to take them off the hangers and put on my... More
