        • Family with children
          8.8

          Very comfortable with a little extra. I also very much liked the proximity to the 'T'.

          I had a very nice night and wish I could have stayed a little longer at this hotel. I did get a nasty shock from the bathroom mirror, but the staff immediately took action. I, personally, didn't like the vicinity. I didn't know about the nightclubs and the sports arena. Just me, tho. Sure many travelers want just that.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Comfort of the bed and kindness of the staff

          Size of the room. The layout. Not what I was expecting for what I paid.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          My college daughter and I went for the weekend and loved the hotel especially the walking distance to Quincy Market. The hotel was very clean and quiet and the staff great...will return again!

          Driving in north Boston from the pike is crazy. The hotel was a little difficult to find even with gps but the location is close to everything

        • Single
          10.0

          The staff was amazing - consistently friendly and helpful. Huge plus that the hotel is pet friendly - I prefer to travel everywhere with my pooch and the staff at the Onyx went above and beyond to make my (and Lola's) stay comfortable. I took advantage of the "doggie daycare" I.E. Lola became the unofficial greeter at the front desk - and I was so thrilled to come home to a dog who had so much fun she was literally too exhausted to walk upstairs. The staff spoiled her rotten :)
