We stayed here for 3 nights over Canadian Thanksgiving, and chose this hotel for its proximity to TD Gardens where we were seeing a hockey game, and because the price was more reasonable than other downtown Boston hotels. The location worked well for us - we walked to many central Boston attractions, and also caught the subway twice, which was...

Stayed for one night in August 2013 and would have loved to stay longer! Excellent service: the staff in reception were friendly and went out of their way to help, the rooms were beautiful and I liked the added touch of the yoga mat! Will definitely be staying there again

My kids and I stayed here for a concert at TD Garden. Extremely convenient location. Valet and bus service exceeded my expectations. This is a pet friendly hotel. We stayed in room 401 - a dog had marked the bottom leg of the bed as well as the nightstand as a result the room smelled like urine. The toilet ran...

Stayed for 2 nights with our pre-teen kids and our dog. Staff was really nice and very helpful, although everything was fine so we didn't ask for any problems to be solved. Room very nice but on small side. Location is within walking distance to lots of stuff in Boston but the actual street is a little sketchy and dark....

Great location-- just a block from TD Garden...and an easy walk to restaurants, Quincy Market, etc... A great staff-- everyone we encountered was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed Tony...he...

I was in Boston last weekend for the Celtics game. I chose the Onyx because it was closed to TD Garden and received complimentary ratings on Trip Advisor. The "Bad": 1). My room was a bit smaller than I expected for a deluxe, even one downtown. 2). It could a bit loud outside the window from the street below, people...

We've just checked out of the Onyx after a 3 night stay. Excellent service from all staff, they were really friendly and helpful. The Ruby room is more of a lobby area than a room but the drinks were great and the service quick and friendly-the hosted wine hour is a great perk and the hot apple cider was a...

As a mom and frequent business traveler, sometimes its nice to have someone take care of you. Onyx is that place - if your hands are full - they press the elevator button. The staff is friendly, quick to help out and double check that you have what you need. It was a cold day out and they warned me...

My wife and I have become fans of the Kimpton brands for the nice boutique hotels and outstanding service they provide. This location was no different. Upon arrival we found the road to the hotel was blocked due to construction. We called the front desk and they were nice enough to send the valet to rescue us. Overall I don't...
