The Boxer Hotel Boston

Boston, USA

The hotel

The pride of Boston, The Boxer Hotel captures the very essence of this ever-evolving city. Originally constructed in 1904, it’s been recently renovated with an industrial chic aesthetic – occupying the city’s historic Flatiron Building, it’s as unique as it is beautiful. Finch is the hotel’s restaurant and serves simple, hearty modern American fare and hometown favourites, including New England chowder – a must taste dish! There’s also a bar, perfect for sampling a Blueberry Cosmos perhaps or a Blue Agave Margarita

The hotel is fab, great location for visiting Boston. Metro round the corner and some of the most helpful staff you could ask for. Everything from the check in through breakfast to evening drinks nothing is too much, great service and so helpful! Especially when dealing with a lost purse! Thanks for the memories.

Not only is it well situated to explore the city, the staff are unbelievably helpful. Giving advise on local transport, places to visit, they have large comfortable beds and the best food and snacks whenever you request it.

Some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They go above and beyond to make my stay feel special and unique to me even though I am sure they provide this level of service to everyone. The Finch is my favorite restaurant. There isnt anything that is on this menu that isnt out of this world. Read less

Boxer was very clean , updated style. Masculine but contemporary and comfortable. The room next to the elevator was slightly noisy and cramped. The room has 2 full beds which did not leave much room to move around. Amenities were good and staff was very friendly and helpful.

I travel very often for work and so I stay in hotels constantly. There are some hotels where the decor feels a bit dated, but the staff are friendly or others that are loud, but have a great location and fun vibe. This hotel was just bad.

I travel very often for work and so I stay in hotels constantly. There are some hotels where the decor feels a bit dated, but the staff are friendly or others that are loud, but have a great location and fun vibe. This hotel was just bad. Firstly, the rooms look NOTHING like they do in the photos. The deluxe king room was so much smaller than anticipated, it was dark, and the furniture was not well preserved. The shower did not drain properly and the room did not have a single bureau or set of clothes to store items. Towels were stacked up high in a corner of the small sink because there's no towel stand or storage space. I was really dismayed that I had to stay here for a week. On top of this, the service was AWFUL. My boyfriend sent a bundle of clothing down to be drycleaned on a Friday. Although they promised next-day cleaning, on Sunday, he still had not received anything. When he called on Monday morning, they informed him that they had not yet sent it out. One night, I returned to my room at 11PM after a day of work and work functions only to find that they hadn't cleaned it. When I called the front desk to get the room cleaned he just told me that "the cleaners leave at 6." He didn't even apologize for the issue although room cleaning should be a basic necessity. This hotel is honestly terrible. It does not deserve anything above a 2 star rating. Avoid this like the plague. Read less
