Hotel Description

Between the brownstones of Beacon Hill and the restaurant mecca of the North End sits Boston’s contribution to flatiron architecture: a 1904 building that’s recently become the home of The Boxer. Formerly the Bulfinch, this 80-room boutique has come out of its 2013 renovation with a chic, unpretentious makeover. It’s a vintage-inspired twist on New England’s nuts-and-bolts industrial look — a playful, retro take on the classic loft apartment.

A map of Boston in the 1860s decorates the ceiling of the lobby, while an old-time key rack and metal chandeliers preside over the front desk. It’s a bit like walking into a stylish movie set, with just enough off-kilter details and modern accents to make you feel pleasantly time-shifted. The guest rooms strike a balance between cool earth tones and curious metalwork — don’t miss the vintage accordion lamps. Distinctive accommodations abound — in the Boxer Bunk rooms, twin beds stretch above full size mattresses. And there’s a nautical finish to the proceedings that’s pure New England, minus the preppiness.

The casual comfort extends to the Finch Restaurant, where hand-crafted cocktails accompany lobster mac and cheese and other storied Boston fare (yes, there’s also chowder). You need only step outside to find a wealth of dining alternatives and high-end shopping — not to mention TD Garden, which is only a block away. If you’re looking for a place to grab a drink and crash after a Bruins or Celtics game, you don’t have to walk very far to sample The Boxer’s hospitality.
