This quaint hotel is nostalgic inspiring with an old-timey feel. The overall decor has a very gentlemanly flair. I was impressed with the courteousness of the front staff they were utmost professional, friendly and informative. There were a few nice little touches that made this hotel stand out from others. You will enjoy seeing them for yourself.

The staff that we dealt with at the Boxer, CJ, Renee and David, were extremely welcoming and friendly. They left a very sweet gift for my seven year old son and were very accommodating. At my son's request we called the evening before we arrive to ask for a room as high up as possible, not only were we on... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the boxer! Smallish but perfectly formed room which had a surprising amount of space! Lots of mini bar items for sale and a little fridge too. The hotel was not right in the middle of the busy part of town but a perfectly lovely walk to get to all of the tourist spots. The... More

The Hotel is conveniently located near downtown Boston. it is 10' walk to Faneuil Hall, 15' to the Harbor and, in the other direction, to the North end. The position is particularly enjoyable because it is much quieter than the very city center. The hotel rooms are really cute and comfortable and the overall atmosphere, including reception, is friendly and... More

We used the on/off trolley and explored Boston in two days. The hotel is a short walk from the downtown market, and many great restaurants...we especially enjoyed Little Italy, and Mike's Cannoli bakery. It is also very close to the suabway. The hotel is reminiscent of a boutique hotel in Paris. We were treated roually by the front desk staff.... More

The Boxer was chosen to be the wedding guests hotel and it was an excellent choice. The Boxer staff was terrific; from the front desk, the housekeeping staff and valet service. The hotel is located near public transportation and with walking distance of the North End. For a large city boutique hotel, rooms were good size and well appointed. We... More

All in all a pretty great place, right downtown, so hard to park, but I happily paid the $44 to have the nice valet park the car. There are a few minor details, such as I could not find any water in the breakfast room so I went out to the lobby to get it from the cooler there, but... More

Outstanding hotel. Location is really good - close to Subway and a fairly short walk to central Boston. Really clean and smart. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good price. Would recommend to anyone and will stay there if we ever return to Boston.
