The Debut of The Boxer in Boston

Several ski writers who came into Boston last week for the Boston Ski Show mentioned that they loved their hotel, The Boxer. Formerly the Bulfinch Hotel, the Boxer is a nine-story, 80- room boutique hotel housed in a triangular 1904 building that’s Boston’s version of the Flatiron Building. Located on Merrimac Street, not far from the Boston Garden and the North End, The Boxer has a vintage feel, with an old-time room key rack behind the front desk and a circa 1860 map of Boston on the lobby ceiling. Their restaurant, Finch, serves regional fare like New England clam chowder and lobster mac n’ cheese. Rates start at $161 a night.

I love the Boxer Hotel. From it's flatiron design to its drop dead gorgeously sleek interior this is a first rate hotel. I find the staff is always accommodating. They remember your name and why you are in Boston. The atmosphere and location are great, rooms are clean and comfortable and the food in Finch is top-notch. All these reasons are why I recommended it when I fact-checked and updated the hotel section of Fodor's Boston.
