Family visit

In addition to the enjoyable visit to see my daughter, the hotel location is perfect to experience downtown Boston. Located close, but not smack in the middle of traffic and crowds. I'll stay here again.

Great People!!

Though I travelled own business, I watched how the people at the front desk handled all people from weary business travellers to families on vacation and all were handled well.

Perfect location

Traveling on business with my spouse, the Onyx was a great location for the short walk to the financial district. We also enjoyed shopping at the nearby Faneuil Hall and dinner at the Union Oyster House. The room was small but comfortable and the shower was hot with plenty of pressure. I would recommend the Onyx Hotel to others. You can even relax before dinner with a glass of wine (or two) which is complimentary. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Superb Hotel, and Even Better Staff

Stayed for four nights and regretted having to leave. Very comfortable and slightly quirky room, great location, but the staff were the best part of my visit, very sociable without being overbearing. In a city full of great hotels, this is the one where you'll feel most at home. Convenience store, Subway, REAL pizza, steakhouse all within a small block and an easy walk to all the North End Italian restaurants, subway (the underground train kind) nearbye.

Boston is a walking city. Cabs are everywhere but take the time to walk to your downtown destination, it's a beautiful town.

Great location

Our flight was early arriving and the hotel was very accomadating with a room long before check in. This is a great location to stay if you are attending any event at the TD Bank North, very short walk. As well, great access to subway, trains, etc.
