Kimpton Onyx Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great overnight stay from beginning to end. Will definitely come back again.

This is a really nice place. It is close to everything, nice and clean and in a safe area. The only gripe is the resort fee $22 per day. Oh and watch out for the $7 bottle of water they convienently place in the room. Other than that it was a pleasure staying there.

The Kimpton Onyx is a wonderful hotel. The staff is great and very accommodating. I would recommend this hotel to stay at if you are ever planning to see an event at the Garden or a weekend trip to Boston.

Stayed here overnight for a concert at TD Garden. Great hotel! Super convenient to the TD Garden (about a block away). Plenty of restaurants, bars and shops in the area. Hotel staff were friendly, room was great and service was as expected.

Great location! Close to the North End and the Garden. All walking distance. We always stay here when we go to events. This time our bed was really uncomfortable. Like an old rickety mattress. Alerted hotel staff in the am.

A great experience at this hotel one of the best I have stayed at. It was in close walking distance to many eating, sightseeing and other attractions. They have complimentary wine for guests every evening. The staff at this hotel is very friendly and helpful gave me recommendations, lent me a phone charger when mine broke, and printed out my airplane ticket. I will stay here again when I go back to Boston.

Very nice, close to the TD Garden and the Freedom Trail

The rooms are poorly insulated which meant that even on the top floor you could hear shouting in the streets as if you were ground level. And you can hear people talking in their rooms even across the hall. Also, the food is grossly overpriced. Breakfast for 2 with no coffee or alcohol or premium qualities was $82 and sadly arrived soggy, cold and flavorless. The staff however is great. As is the decor. That with perks like being pet friendly and complimentary wine hour might have me consider giving the hotel a 2nd chance.

Location of this hotel is ideal. We planned our trip around a game at TD Garden. Loved the quick walk to the Garden from the hotel. We were able to walk to most everything, hotel is very close to the metro stations as well. Hotel provided us a crib for our infant, which worked well for our 8 the month old. We stayed in the top floor penthouse level, room was nice. One thing to mention is if you like having your morning cup of coffee in your room, be sure to ask for the coffee maker ahead of time before you tuck in for bed. You'll wake up wondering where the coffee maker is. You need to ask the hotel, since the don't automatically provide one in the room only upon request. Our stay was enjoyable, staff was nice and would stay again because you can't beat the central location!

We love this little boutique hotel. Located near TDGarden, Fanuel Hall, and the North End. Easy walk to downtown. We even walked to the MFA, but we like walking. Our room was comfy, cozy, and quiet. The modern decor makes it a fun place to return to.

Hotel is nice and staff is very friendly. The room was nice and the beds are comfortable. My girlfriend and I stayed and it was perfect for us. One of the lights in the bathroom was flickering but it didn't ruin our stay. I would recommend this place to a friend.

The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Glass of wine upon arrival, yes please! Cool vibe in the rooms and a fun place to stay. The location was a short taxi ride from many activities and historic sights in downtown Boston. There was also lots of foot traffic and places to grab a bite to eat in walking distance.

The entire staff from valet, to check in, to the Ruby room, were attentive , professional and warm.

My husband I traveled to Boston in May 2015 for a business/personal trip. I was not able to get a room at the hotel where my conference was, so we decided on the Onyx. Fortunately for us, this worked out better! The Onyx was in a great location. We were able to walk or use the subway system to travel around the city and see just about every tourist destination we wanted to see. The room was small, but perfect for us. The staff was AMAZING! They were willing to help out with recommendations and suggestions on restaurants, tourist destinations, and how to get around. It was a wonderful trip and much of that was because of where we stayed!

The hotel was very nice, but what stuck out the most was the staff and their professional approach. They were friendly and it was clear that they were willing to assist in any way they could. Would definitely stay again for this reason alone. Thank you for hiring the right people to run the hotel. They make it worth the stay.

Great staff. Very helpful. Attractions walkable. Great hotel perks. Pricey though.

Friendly and stellar staff! Very personable! We loved the location and our room!!

I was really impressed with the hotel. Though the room was a little smaller than I'm use to, we were able to fit 4 people comfortably. The staff brought up a special snack for my mom since it was her birthday weekend. The location was great for touring Boston.

Friendly staff, great location, ice cream in lobby,

Staff friendly and helpful Printed our flight tickets and arranged their car to take us to the airport for the same cost of a taxi but much more comfortable and roomy Also left my camera in the car . They found and are sending it to my home :) Room comfortable Located near sport facility and many sport bars Short walk to historical sites.
