Solid Vacation Hotel
The Kimpton Onyx is a good hotel, reasonably priced. Not a lot of amenities. Room (double bed) and the hotel itself was fairly small - but clean and quiet (which is always good!) Not much of a fitness room, so if you need your gym workouts, there's a Boston Athletic Club around the corner for $20/day. Location wise, the hotel is in a great spot. TD Garden is right across the street, "T" station access, and many of the Boston sights are in walking distance (Freedom Trail, Aquarium, Little Italy, Boston Commons). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Airport is pretty close - 15 to 20 minutes away. Lots of shopping, stores, and restaurants close by - like the Boston Public Market. Overall, a great stay!

A little disappointed
The rooms are great, though on the smaller side as is the bathroom. The location is perfect if one is attending an event at TD Gardens. However, the extras are overpriced, the fees incomprehensible, especially the resort fee; I saw nothing that would qualify it as a resort! It just seems like a money grab! They still do not have coffee makers in the rooms, who wants to dress and go down to the lobby at 6am, and the only restaurant / bar does not open until 5. I wouldn’t stay there more than one night. However, all the front desk staffers were professional, accommodating and fri

Nice Hotel
This was a very nice hotel very convenient to the TD center (about a block and a half away) where we were going. everyone was very nice, room was clean. I would just say it needed some touch up work like some paint in the bathroom around the mirror but otherwise everything was perfect. They even gave the few people in line to check in a glass of wine! Porter Grill next store to Hotel had good food!

My favorite Boston hotel
I’ve stayed at the Kimpton Onyx hotel three times and I love it. It’s impeccably decorated (modern yet cozy) and the staff is always helpful and kind. Most recently, I was there with a broken foot and the staff offered me ice for it, extra pillows to prop it up, etc. The service was excellent! I definitely hope to stay here again when I visit Boston in the future.

Amazing location and hotel! Staff was awesome!
This hotel is right in the heart of Boston. We didn't know what to expect since we hadn't visited Boston before, and we were going for a concert at TD Garden. Our hotel was a 1/2 block away, and you can literally spend your entire time within about two blocks because there is so much to do! When we checked in, the girl at the front desk was wonderful, let us check in a few hours early, and even upgraded us. The room is decorated very well and they provide a lot of amenities. I didn't sleep great the first night (sore back), but slept well all of the other nights so it was probably just me. We spent our last night down at the hotel bar watching the Patriots playoff game. The bartender was excellent--exactly what you hope for, someone who jokes around with you and is very helpful. We didn't think the menu looked great, but didn't have it in us to go out in the cold and deal with the crowds everywhere, so we stayed and ate there. The food was excellent!! If we ever go back, we would definitely stay here again! We spent a lot of time out in the Faniuel (sp?) Hall area, but it was just a short Uber ride over (maybe $5) and in better weather, you could walk. We spent the first day at all of the bars around our hotel.
