Only a short walk to Boston musts like Faneuil hall and Oysterhouse. Lobby, restaurant and rooms nicely and detailed set up but you pay relatively high prices for tiny rooms. Parking is possible in public space for 35 or valet for 44. You don't need a car for discovering Boston from here. Subway station is only a short walk as...

Dear Bjoern W., Thank you for staying with us and commenting on your stay. We're delighted that you found the hotel well-appointed and in a perfect spot to get around Boston. It is true that as a historic flat-iron shaped 1904 building (one of the older surviving buildings in Boston's West End) our rooms aren't the largest or most symmetrical....

This was my 1st trip to New England. The location was perfect for viewing Boston. You could walk anywhere. It was spotless from top to bottom. The staff was friendly and helpful. I thought the complimentary bicycles was a great idea.

We stayed at The Boxer for three nights and loved it. Our room was tiny but we had expected that from other reviews. Everything was spotless and the bed was comfortable. The location was great with walks of less than a mile to many attractions. They also had complementary bikes and umbrellas available. The staff was outstanding, friendly and helpful.

The hotel is located within a short walk to the Garden and the surrounding bars and clubs. The hotel has a very cool vibe. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The staff could not have been nicer nor more helpful. Even though the Bruins lost, the after game drinks in the bar made it a little less painful.

What a wonderful hotel. The staff are amazing. Our room was outstanding on the corner of the 9th floor of this historic building. I highly recommend this hotel.
