The quasi-industrial WestEnd, a neighborhood defined by its proximity to other neighborhoods
Awkwardly situated between the charming North End and old-school Beacon Hill, the Bulfinch Hotel is in the nondescript West End, an area that's best defined by its proximity to other neighborhoods. Once a lively immigrant community, the area was razed in the 1950s and is now a barren, largely industrial territory. TD Garden, home of the Bruins and Celtics, is two blocks north of the hotel, and Massachusetts General Hospital is a 15-minute walk. But Boston's main tourist draws are farther afield, and the surrounding streets are populated with little beyond sports bars and fast-food joints. However, Beacon Hill's lively Cambridge Street, with an array of eating and drinking options, lies three blocks south, and the North End, Boston's Little Italy, is equidistant.
The Boxer reopened after a massive renovation in May 2013. We are in the process of updating our review.
