Renovated Boxer Hotel embraces Boston’s past

Bulfinch reemerges as the Boxer, an upscale accommodation

The Bulfinch Hotel near TD Garden is unveiling a new, more upscale identity on Monday when the recently renovated property officially becomes the Boxer.

The hotel, located in a triangular 1904 building on Merrimac Street, has a vintage feel, with an old-time room key rack behind the front desk, a circa 1860 map of Boston on the lobby ceiling, and industrial-era accordion lamps in the guest rooms. The restaurant, formerly Flat Iron Tapas Bar, is now called Finch, and has wingback chairs, a weathered wood floor, and a newly exposed glass wall bringing in more light.
