We loved our King room at the thin end of the "flatiron" shaped building. There was enough space for all normal facilities without crowding. The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful to us.

The Boxer is a beautiful, Boston hotel, located in a central part of town. All the sights, restaurants and shops are located within walking distance. The hotel is charming; a smaller, boutique hotel that offers everything and more one would expect while staying in a high end establishment. We were greeted warmly by Luckas, who, after finding out we were...

Everyone was very friendly, complimentary breakfast, amazing shower, cute room, not crowded - try it out!! It is not surrounded by people, but still a good location (our room had a nice view). If you like biking they have bikes out front for you to take. Then when we checked in they said the next day we get complimentary breakfast...

I booked a night at the Boxer Hotel to celebrate my birthday and our first wedding anniversary. When checking in Luckas noticed that it was my birthday when looking at my license. I told him it was also our first wedding anniversary. He immediately congratulated us, upgraded our hotel room, and gave us breakfast vouchers to help us celebrate our...

Yes the room (comfy bed), location (so quiet, yet easy walk to all the sights) and ambiance (trendy and fun) are fantastic, but the staff made it beyond exceptional! Front desk staff Anna, Dushane, bartender James and Manager Brian; all were super helpful.

Stayed here two nights while in Boston on business. While the immediate neighborhood lacks charm, I walked to the Commons and all around Back Bay and Beacon Hill easily, and it was easy to get around. My room was smallish but comfortable, and on a high enough floor to see over the ugly municipal building next door. Nice interior design,...

This hotel has everything you could want in a boutique accommodation. The staff were incredibly friendly making me feel automatically welcomed and at ease. The room was comfortable and impeccably clean. The bed and linens were exceptionally comfortable. The location is very close to the Faneuil Hall and North End. Excellent!

Very stylish! For some this might not be important, for me it is. Very classy, but not over-the-top or snobby. Very cute rooms with great interior, incredibly friendly staff, you can tell that they work as a team and love working there. Gym is tiny, but they have a collaboration with a full-on fitness center within walking distance. I'll definitely...

I was really impressed with my stay at the Boxer Hotel in Boston. The ambiance and feel were very comfortable, yes a boutique hotel, but a feel that wasn't over decorated or too flossy. The service was outstanding, with personal touches like umbrellas for walking, apples on the concierge desk, and a super friendly, attentive bartender. I would stay here...
