Great find in an overpriced city A review of Onyx Hotel - a Kimpton Hotel

I was very happy at the Onyx. They are clearly still working out the kinks, but I saw little evidence of major problems. As described, the room was on the small side but so well equipped that I didn't have a chance to play with half the goodies. Very comfortable bed, and my preferences as a Kimpton frequent guest were honored precisely. The location might seem a little odd, but you are a five minute walk (on a bad day) from a T stop that will get you anywhere you need to be. There is a surprising amount of night life around the area, and I saw several interesting looking bars and restaurants. I'd stay here again in a minute. Only quibbles: the maid who seemed to take pleasure in leaving the shower head pointint out into the bathroom and the poor overworked person who was trying the check me out at the same time he had to answer a barrage of trivial questions along the line of "is this the right binder" from half-trained employees. With a bit of time this hotel will be a true gem, give it a chance.
