My husband and I had a fantastic 2 nights at the hotel. Rooms are extremely well designed and funky, location couldn't be better - everywhere in town is walking distance, breakfast downstairs is lovely, but best of all is the staff, everyone without fail is friendly, helpful and knowledgable (Serena & Lucas come to mind, but again, everyone else was great too, including behind the bar and serving breakfast)
Would recommend to anyone and will be back again.

My wife and I were impressed with the style and design of this hotel. It is meticulously clean and the staff is top notch. We particularly like the location close to The Garden and the north end neighborhood. The breakfast is excellent. We will be staying here again.

From the get-go, this place was ideal. Jason let us know of free Christmas day parking. Serena was there to answer questions about restaurants, parking, and even let us extend our stay for the same rate. Stephanie was friendly and helpful as well with restaurant recommendations. There was an overnight front desk employee who was a male who was also super nice. They were accommodating to my baby kitten who stayed with us as well. The room was awesome. Clean, quant and the cleaning staff was also very nice. They gave me everything I needed to restock the room myself as I was unable to allow anyone in the room due to a roaming baby kitten (rescue pet btw)! My fiancé and I had a blast at this spot which was walking distance to everything we wanted to see/ go to. Plus we were 2 minutes from a subway station which was cheap. The breakfast was awesome awesome. We had the greek yogurt and make your own omelet. Loved the little gym, got in a great workout. My only grip was a noisy neighbor. However, I mentioned this to Serena and she said she would look into it right away. The next night - no issues and slept like a rock! Thank you staff at the Boxer Hotel!

Room Tip: 7th floor had huge windows with lots of light

Staff is very accommodating especially Serena. Booked a hotel package with breakfast and parking included. Rooms are very industrial modern looking. Small but comfortable. Bed was extremely comfortable. Make sure to get a room with a tub. It makes all the difference.:) The breakfast (that was included) included eggs, bacon or sausage, some kind of bread and coffee or juice. Our waitress was very accommodating and let us swap pancakes for eggs (which btw were delicious). Nice little restaurant with gigantic seats you have to climb up to, but nevertheless very comfortable. Would stay here again. If you have any problem, let the front desk know. They always fix it right away.

We booked through the website and got a pretty great deal for the location. It benefitted us because it was around the corner from TD garden. The room size was petite but quite alright for us. The style and decor caught my attention quick. Very cozy feel to the room and hotel all around. Concierge Serena was very friendly and helpful. She made us feel welcomed and kept us informed.

I was able to check in early and found my hotel room to be immaculate! Serena, Stephanie and Vanessa were more than accommodating, arranging taxis and answer my millions of questions, haha. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel for its staff, accommodations and location.
