My boyfriend and I needed a place where we could bring his dogs. From the first phone call to the final day, the staff was more than welcoming and made sure we were comfortable. Even during the blizzard of 2013, the staff that stayed overnight for their guests were always friendly, helpful and accommodating.

I recently took my 10 year old son and a friend to see a Celtics game. I booked the Onyx hotel because of the location and I typically prefer boutique hotels. The price was very competitive. I was a bit nervous about bringing two boys into a boutique hotel, but the staff at the Onyx made me feel right at...

The TD Garden is so close, you can hear the floor shake....not really, but you get the idea. Glad you and the boys had a great time, bet they loved those leopard print robes. Nothing beats being able to Raid the Mini Bar as an InTouch member right? I love the cashews and take full advantage! Thanks for the great...

This hotel was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. After exploring the city and shopping, simple things like a lemon/lime cold water available for you to help yourself was so appreciated! The Ruby Bar was also a great place to relax with a few cocktails. The beds were also super comfortable. There is only one tiny thing I'd...

I love boutique hotels, and the Onyx was no exception. Comfortable room. Great staff: John at the front desk printed the color copies I needed for a new business presentation at no additional cost!

This season was the fourth time we spent New Year's in Boston, and the third time we stayed at the Onyx. Why? It's an excellent place to stay! The Onyx is in a great location, close to most of Boston. On one side, an easy walk to Quincy Market, the North End, and the Freedom Trail. On the other side,...

We have stayed at the Onyx before, so when we planned a night at the Celtics game it was a no brainer on where to stay! I love this hotel! The front desk staff was great-"leave your keys we'll take care of the car!" The room as always was clean, and has the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on!...

A three-hour delay on an Amtrak train brought me to Boston and the Onyx Hotel at 3:30 a.m. With a morning meeting to attend, I was really just looking forward to plopping down on the bed and getting as much sleep as possible. The hotel is close to North Station, which was fairly convenient for where I needed to go....

I am a fan of Kimpton hotels, so I staying at the Onyx was a easy choice. Like most Kimpton hotels, it is functional and just a bit quirky. I had put in for an upgrade to a higher floor and my room on the 10th was the quietest hotel room in a long time. I appreciate that they have...
