We are all adventurers at heart, and when it comes to enjoying the finer things in life – including fine fare, stylish surroundings and one of the country’s greatest cities, Kimpton Onyx Hotel has it all and more. This easy escape is conveniently located in Boston’s West End and is following all CDC guidelines and procedures when it comes to keeping guests safe and comfortable.
Located across the street from just about any Bostonian major attraction, Kimpton Onyx is a great outpost for sport and music fans, foodies, shopaholics, and history lovers. For the authentic taste of Boston, head to the North End, filled with delicious Italian eateries and fresh seafood bars, or Beacon Hill that dazzles visitors with its antique English narrow brick streets and splendid tiny restaurants. Note to shopaholics, the Boston Public Market and Faneuil Hall are only a few minutes away. Additional shopping destinations like Newbury street and Prudential Center can be easily reached on foot or by public transportation. Kimpton Onyx is conveniently located just minutes from two major MBTA stations, while Boston Logan International Airport is less than 30 minutes from the hotel.
Each and every Kimpton property showcases a unique personality and wealth of amenities, and Onyx Hotel offers the exceptional service and laidback yet luxurious setting that has become synonymous with the brand. With a playfulness and eclectic style, the hotel is ideal for both romantic getaways and family vacations. Nestled in an 11-story brick building with metal accents, the hotel radiates with shiny, yet, truly classic Bostonian vibes. The overall interior of the lobby is quite extravagant in the virtue of mottled floors and a patterned carpet. Sit back and relax in their Ruby Lounge, filled with comfy plush chairs and a striking chandelier. The red leather bar, which offers nightly free wine hours, is a great way to relax after exploring this bustling city. Luckily for guests, this heightened sense of style continues into the spacious rooms and suites.
Boasting 112 innovative rooms, Kimpton Onyx provides guests with an exquisite residential experience. Although most of the hotels in the area emphasize the city’s colonial past, Onyx focuses on more contemporary design choices. The rooms are composed of dark hues of charcoal tones accented by lots of reds. Leather pieces also complement the pinstriped blankets, houndstooth bathrooms, and “Wicked Smaht” pillowcases. Within each spacious room or suite you will find mini-bars, iHome docking stations, flat-screen TVs, yoga mats, and other comforts at your super chic home away from home. The bathrooms feature relaxing rain showers and come stocked with Atelier Bloem toiletries as well as hooded fleece robes.
This haute hotel’s well-informed and friendly staff are always ready to help plan your very posh Boston trip help. Their array of upscale amenities includes in-room spa services, round the clock fitness center, outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, and rental bikes that will allow you to explore the city, which has come to be known as “the cradle of the revolution.” If you’re in town for business purposes, the hotel offers a small, yet perfectly comfortable 24-hour business center. You will also have access to complimentary morning papers, overnight shoe-shining, and high-speed WiFi.
Indulge in an incredible culinary adventure with an on-property restaurant and bar Ruby Lounge. It might be a fun lounge, but Ruby has some very palatable plates along with wonderful hand-crafted cocktails. We recommend digging into Bostonian bar fare including their clam chowder and signature Ruby wings. Main dishes include the grilled chicken sandwich with cheddar cheese and avocado, as well as grilled salmon and steak frites. Wake up and smell the coffee – and a tasty full American breakfast. When it comes to cocktails, let’s just say that the Hidden Gem, made with vodka grapefruit juice and muddled basil, plus their smooth High Fashion with Tanqueray gin, St. Germain liqueur, grapefruit, and rhubarb bitters, are some of Boston’s best kept secrets!
Prepare to be lured by the luxuriousness of Kimpton Onyx – a quirky and unique gem in the heart Boston.
