I recently took my 10 year old son and a friend to see a Celtics game. I booked the Onyx hotel because of the location and I typically prefer boutique hotels. The price was very competitive. I was a bit nervous about bringing two boys into a boutique hotel, but the staff at the Onyx made me feel right at home immediately. I was greeted with a glass of wine, and the staff brought up two animal print robes for the kids!
Hotel overall is clean, modern, full of amenities, and a staff that understands service. The rooms are small, but you'd expect that for a city-hotel. The beds are comfortable and I believe you have a choice of three types of pillows. The best part was the "raid the mini-bar" coupon you get as a Kimpton member. The boys could snack without me worrying about the bill! In the morning a hot chocolate bar with marshmallows and cinnammon greeted us!
I would not even think about looking for another hotel the next time I visit TD Garden - (it's less than a block from the Bobby Orr statue), or come back as a tourist for any other North End attractions. (Valet parking $45. I was happy to pay it for the convenience).
