Comfy, cool clean room. Bathrobes were a nice addition. The room is quite small, but we weren't there for long. Four of us in two full size beds was a little tight. Unfortunately the vent blew air on my face all night. I wish I could've repositioned it but it was coming out of the ceiling. Friendly and helpful desk...

My husband and I traveled to Boston from Florida for an eleven day stay. We wanted a location that would allow us to walk to many Boston landmarks, and the Onyx was perfect. We were a short walk from TD Garden, Quincy Market, MGH, the North End, and we even walked to the Common and Newbury/Boylston on numerous occasions. We...

The location is good if you are going to something at the Garden, its a block away. The downside is that it can get a little loud on the street which you can hear from your room. Valet parking is available which was 47$ for the night.

The experience we had while staying at the Onyx hotel in Boston was nothing short of amazing! From the moment we checked-in (in the middle of an extremely severe snow storm) until our departure, everything was just - perfect. We did not encounter even a simple problem. Check-in: this was the most beautiful experience ever. The reception staff, lead by...

The staff at Kimpton hotels are so kind and creative. We stayed here on our in and on our way out and they couldn't have been more helpful. We learned upon checking in that we could not bring a goldfish to our room but the staff made up for it by bringing us cookies, snacks and milk for our girls....

This is our first time in a Kimpton Hotel and we were not disappointed. The staff was exceptional!!!! Our room was small but clean and quiet. Great location and within walking distance to Little Italy, Quincy Market and other attractions. Plus, it's steps away from TD Garden. Ruby Room is great for breakfast (didn't have lunch or dinner there) and...
