    The Onyx is like the practical middle sibling of the three Kimpton hotels in Boston. Located just behind North Station, most travelers choose it as an ideal crash pad following a game or concert at the Gahden. A fitness room, restaurant and bar all do their job adequately. According to the concierge, it's the free breakfast that often tips the scales in favor of the Onyx for European tourists. Perhaps they're also encouraged by the proximity of the North End, where some of Boston's most authentic Italian fare is to be found.

    Yes, the Onyx is pretty tacky – not only do they give you leopard print bathrobes (I wonder how many guests take them home with them), but they also have faux-fur blankets in each room – but I sort of liked it. I was also a big fan of the checkerboard carpets since they’re different than the normal off-white carpet you’d expect at a hotel. Location is a double-edged sword for the Onyx; while it’s a quick jaunt from the TD Garden, the neighborhood it’s in seems to be on the shady side. And it’s not really a place to take children, but I doubt any hotel with leopard print robes is aiming to be a family fun spot. The gym also leaves a lot to be desired, though I was told guests have access to Boston Sports Club if they want, but that’s a hike.

    As a Kimpton, this place has the expected sense of bold style. The room carpets are in a large checkerboard pattern and the complimentary robes are tiger print. Yes, really. Whether you find this wonderfully faux-tacky or just regular tacky is up to personal taste, I guess, but it’s an eyeful either way. The lobby is a bit cramped, as is the dimly-lit Ruby Room, and the gym is one of the smallest I’ve seen (though there are only 112 rooms). The staff is very obliging and there’s a calendar in the lobby displaying events as they happen through the week. There’s also a whole host of complimentary services including shoe shines. Location also plays a big factor: Onyx is right across from TD Garden, so if you’re in town specifically for a game or concert, this might suit your needs.
