Stayed here in May 2012 for a weekend getaway. I am a huge Kimpton fan since I always travel with my dog, so I always look to Kimpton first as they have by far the most welcoming pet policy. This was our first trip to Boston, and while we loved the city, this Kimpton isn't in the most ideal location. If you're going to an event at TD Gardens, then yes, otherwise it's a bit of a walk to get anywhere. I wanted to stay at Nine Zero (another Kimpton), but their price continued to go up, so we decided to go with the Onyx. It's very no frills. There's a bar/"restaurant" on the first floor called Ruby Room, which we did not try, but otherwise you can try nearby 7-11 and Au Bon Pain for snacks, water, etc. Also, they do offer valet parking at $42/night.
For sightseeing, I'd suggest starting the Freedom Trail in the North End, since it's closer to the hotel, then going towards Faneuil Hall and Boston Common. For dinner, we enjoyed Sam's which is just over the pedestrian bridge on the wharf/waterfront and offers great views - just make sure to ask for an outside table when you make your reservation.
