I needed a hotel on short notice in Boston and the Boxer had really reasonable rates. I knew I was getting a small room because it was outfitted with a full bed, and while the room was indeed tiny, it had everything i needed, was beautifully decorated, and had a great bathroom (with L'Occitane products, to boot!). I'd definitely stay...

My friends and I recently spent two nights at The Boxer, and we cannot find fault with anything. The décor of the communal areas and our room were perfectly charming and gave the hotel a quality feel. The staff (particularly Brian at the concierge desk) were friendly and very helpful. The Boxer is central to everything you'd want to see...

I think the Waldorf Astoria could learn a thing or two from you all at The Boxer! It was our first visit to Boston from the UK and we were not disappointed either by the city or by the accommodation.

Expect to be floored. With a physique wrought from steel & stone--rugged yet polished--& fighting out of Boston's West End, The Boxer is within punching range of TD Garden, The North End, Boston Common, Faneuil Hall & The Freedom Trail. With a slick 1-2 combination of free bike rentals & wifi, this prizefighter hits well above its class & delivers...

We stayed at this hotel two years ago and returned because of the service and location. Although the rooms are small, they are well set up and the location, right in the heart of the City of Boston and within walking distance of numerous historical sites, more than compensates. As travellers who only need a room to sleep and shower,...
