The Boxer is simply the coolest spot in the North End if you are looking for something different, convenient, and for the best service imaginable. We recommend a mid-week booking for the best prices and quite possibly even better service than what might be possible if it were more crowded (although we did notice them staffing up when we checked...

Appreciated the early check-in and the staff's kindness to make my stay comfortable. Thanks. Politeness matters and the sensitivity the staff offered didn't go unnoticed. The room is comfortable, and the bed is lovely.

The room was very well appointed, and the bathroom very well stocked with fun stuff. The food and drinks in the restaurant downstairs were reasonably priced and tasty! All in all a great experience. We would stay...

We were treated to an upgrade to an upper floor room in the "tip of the flatiron) since it was our 42nd anniversary. What a disappointment. There was absolutely...

I liked the location. We could easily walk to Knob Hill and the North End. The T was about 2 blocks away - very walkable. It was a quiet area on the weekends - weekday mornings the traffic was louder. But the area wasn't crowded on the weekends like it is in the tourist area. It's kind of in a...

We never went but a nice feature for after dinner drinks etc. Cons: -Thin walls and talkative neighbors. Thank goodness all they did was talk! -Wide...
