The Onyx Hotel (Boston) is a top-notch hotel with a very friendly, accommodating staff. We stayed here for a Celtics game and the location is perfect for walking to the Garden. It's also very easy to walk to Feneuil Hall, the North End or the Theatre District. We booked the hotel direct from their website and got the best rate... More

I love boutique hotels - they're my absolute favourite. This hotel chain (Kimpton) was completely unknown to me - I was simply looking for a modestly priced property in Boston for my trip. This hotel came in at a fantastic price, was pretty close to the places I wanted to visit and was near transit. The hotel staff were great... More

My father (75) and I stayed at the Onyx on March 25 and 26, 2013 for two nights of hockey and basketball at the Garden. Using the hotel's Contact Us information, I wrote in advance to ask if vacancies allowed it, could we have an early check in as we'd be arriving before 10 am and my dad has just... More

We booked this hotel because of its location, a two minute walk to the TD Garden. The rooms were small but cozy, the interior design was interesting (not my favorite style, but certainly something to appreciate) and the overall experience was good. A bit too pricey (we paid $200 for a double deluxe without breakfast), but it served our purpose,... More
