The Boxer Boston is one of the most conveniently located hotels near Boston University. Just a ten-minute drive on Storrow Drive connects our property with the Allston campus. While BU is located in a gorgeous area, the student-dense, party-heavy neighborhood may not be the choice retreat for parents visiting.
