I would highly recommend The Onyx Hotel- especially for couples, friends, solo or business travel. Newly renovated, beautiful rooms, close to everything, awesome staff - perfect base for a Boston vacation!

My first time ever staying in Boston and it couldn't have been more perfect. The staff especially John went above and beyond for me as a guest. I came into town for a bruins game and realized I lost my tickets, John gave me a email address to have a second copy sent...the wine hour really helped take off the...

The front desk staff were very helpful make you feel welcome. The rooms are a little small but I think that is normal for Boston. Bar in the lobby was packed with what looked like as regulars always a good sign. Would deferentially stay here again.

Loved everything about this hotel! Perfect location and great style. Our favorite part was the beyond friendly and helpful front desk personnel. Michael and Dava are amazing and made us feel like friends instead of guests.

When I arrived for check in at the Onyx, I was immediately greeted by the friendly staff. As I was arriving during their Wine Hour, I also received a complimentary glass of wine to take up to my room or to enjoy in the lounge. (It was a great way to unwind after a day of city driving.) I decided...

My friend and I stayed at the Onyx February 20 - 22, 2014. This was our girl's getaway and it was our first time visiting Boston. We went ahead and used the valet service, since it was convenient and the valet rate included going in and out of the hotel as many times as we pleased. The first thing we...

Our stay at the Onyx was fabulous. This was our second stay at this hotel and it was wonderful both times. Their attention to our family was second to none. From the pet fish in the room to the special treats before the big game, nothing was overlooked. The staff were all incredibly friendly and made my entire family feel...

The Onyx Hotel was perfection from start to end. It truly feels like you're walking into a small European boutique hotel with the style of Paris or Milan.

A perfect spot if you are in town for an event at the TD Garden. We had one of the newly restyled rooms, very nicely done. Save yourself some hassle and pay the Valet parking, it's worth the extra. We did not join the crowd in the Ruby Lounge but it was a popular spot. All staff were very friendly.
