I have stayed here a few times, mainly because it is close to TD Garden. The front desk people are so helpful always! They really know the city and give great advice, besides arranging rides and such. You never have to wait in a long line to get help. I also like the restaurant for a drink after the game or breakfast, everything is good. It’s a… Read more

We stayed here for a long anniversary weekend. It is a great location. Super close to the Garden arena. We went to a concert and a basketball game and only had to walk half a block. It is also within walking distance to the public market and Fanueil Hall. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even sent us up sparkling wine and… Read more
We stayed here for a long anniversary weekend. It is a great location. Super close to the Garden arena. We went to a concert and a basketball game and only had to walk half a block. It is also within walking distance to the public market and Fanueil Hall. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even sent us up sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries for our anniversary. It is a smaller boutique hotel and is best for travelers who will spend most of their time out and doing things. Would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. Read less

I often stay at a Kimpton when I travel for work so we decided to stay at the Onyx when we went to the Bruins game. From the minute I walked in, I knew this Kimpton was not as nice as the others I have stayed in. The lobby was small and cluttered. The staff was very nice. Room was smaller than most hotel rooms I have stayed in when in NYC. After… Read more

From the minute I walked in, I knew this Kimpton was not as nice as the others I have stayed in. The lobby was small and cluttered. The staff was very nice. Room was smaller than most hotel rooms I have stayed in when in NYC. After the game, came back to the bar for a drink. Bartender didn’t seem overly excited to see us. He told he next group that came in us that the bar was closed (10:30). This hotel is underwhelming and average at best. Read less

Conveniently located a short walk from the TD garden. Hotel was clean and rooms were trendy. Our room had double beds, Bluetooth clock, robes and the decor was nice. Beds were comfortable but only full size. No complimentary water which is unfortunate but provided but available for purchase. Checkout and vallet were smooth upon checkout. Read less

I'm late on this review, but we stayed here last July for a trip to Boston. It was right around the corner from the subway and close to the Garden. The staff was amazing and even mailed a package home for me. Highly recommend.
