Was very friendly, clean and in a great area not far from the Garden, North Station and Faneuil Hall

Location and building were unique, room was a bit small and maybe a little in need of a refurbish, the restaurant breakfast was outstanding, truly delicious and gourmet.

It’s not a cookie cutter hotel. It’s unique and the staff was excellent.

Location made walking to TD Garden so convenient. Very friendly staff; especially Chris (from Lebanon, NH) our waiter! Desk staff helpful in answering questions! Thank you.

Clean and compact room. Attractive artwork and furnishings give it a hip vibe. All amenities including a plush robe,mini bar and Keurig coffee maker much appreciated. Had dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Good comfort food.

A small room with all amenities including Keurig coffee maker, plush robe, mini bar. Comfortable bed and quality linens. Enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant

The rooms are lovely and very comfortable bed... only stayed one night but definitely would come back

Great trip. Neat spot. Unique and good location. Wish parking were better.

The woman working at the lobby desk, Melinda I believe, was very sweet and helpful!

It was a very nice experience. room was nice, hotel staff were nice and friendly, breakfast was very good.

The hotel and our room was nice, however for the price we payed I don't think it was worth it. While our room was clean and the bed was comfortable, it was so tiny and cramped. We barley had space for out carry on sized luggage (I cant imagine if we had large suitcases) and there was almost no walking space. I understand it is a unique building, however like I said for the amount we paid I expected more. If you like a spacious room the Boxer is not for you.

Amazing staff! One of the most accommodating hotels I have ever stayed at.

Lovely hotel downtown. Walking distance to Faneuil Hall and the North End, as well as TD Garden. The rooms were stylish and comfortable. Staff were attentive and courteous.

It was just ok! Nothing terrible. But with so many other Boston hotels for a similar price - I don’t think I’d return.

If you like being close, but not TOO close to city life and/or like to be in parts of a city that are relatively quiet on the weekends, then The Boxer is in a great location for you. The rooms are great, the hotel is cozy, and the staff is incredibly friendly. Add the fact that we got an amazing rate both nights and this was an absolute winner.

Tiny room, expensive (380$), 47$/ night parking, no cont. breakfast, . Carpets trashed, in general I wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy
