Stayed at the Kimpton Madeira in D.C. three years ago and again at the Onyx over New Year's Day weekend. As in the Madera I was impressed with the level of service at the Onyx. The hotel serves coffee at the lobby and the Front Desk really paid attention. One noticed I wanted some tea instead. I came in late...

The was my husband and my first trip to Boston together, and we decided to stay close to TD garden as we were going to a Bruins game on Saturday. We checked in a little early and the hotel staff was more than accommodating even though the room wasn't quite ready. So they did take our bags and valet our...

Stayed 5 nights over Christmas holiday and I would do it again if I am ever in Boston. I was very happy with the room I got for the price I paid. It was modern, stylish, and most important, very clean. The bed and pillows were comfy, and the TV was a good size, 42" or so. It can be...

If you are searching for a downtown, Boston hotel, stop. This is it. We stayed here for 7 nights in December. Every part of our stay here has been perfect. The location puts you within seconds of a T-Line and the TD. Dining options nearby are plentiful, with a great place called Porters Bar and Grill next door. There is...

Amazing. Stop looking around and just book it. The staff is THE friendliest I've encountered, and I have been to 40+ countries. Shout out to Brian and Brad for all their help in tourist locations, travel, activities to partake in, and even booking additional nights because we just couldn't bring ourselves to try another hotel! The location is ideal- steps...

The room was very clean but seemed small, however, a hotel is just a place to sleep when we're out of town on short trips so it was fine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again when in town to watch the Bruins and recommend for a good hotel just down the block from TD...

Once upon a time, this hotel was probably a Hampton Inn or maybe a Holiday Inn- the room layouts, bathroom size, and size of the rest of the property are small, not just "cozy". That being said, Kimpton has tried to update the property, with nice furnishings and decor, but the size and overall small footprint just can't be overcome...
