Like the Kimpton Onyx Hotel around the block, this boutique hotel, opened in 2013 in a repurposed 1904 building, is in a neighborhood just south of North Station that is in a state of redevelopment. The hotel’s slate grey industrial look highlights a fashion-forward urban design, with rooms that are small but sleek. The Boxer is the exclusive hotel partner of City Winery Boston, a music and dining space a 5-minute walk from the front door.
