More Room Types

Concert-goers and sports fans who stay at the AAA 4-Diamond Onyx Hotel can be in their seats at the TD Garden faster than Paul Revere’s midnight ride. Take a five-minute walk southwest of the hotel over to the North End area, home to Boston’s Little Italy and historic sights including the famed horseman’s home and other notable stops along the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail. Or stroll five minutes east toward charming Beacon Hill and grab a bite or beverage at the bars, bistros and restaurants of Cambridge Street.

The hotel’s décor is modern and kitschy, with dark woods and pops of cherry red throughout. The hotel’s aptly named Ruby Room restaurant looks like a lounge but offers a full dinner menu and breakfast buffet. Oenophiles will love the free daily happy hour featuring socially responsible wines. Other signature Kimpton property touches include an eco-conscious aesthetic, including recycling bins in each guest room.
