Intercontinental Boston

Boston, USA

The hotel

There's no better location which best captures Boston's history, culture and contemporary style other than the inner harbor and at the stylish Intercontinental, you'll find yourself right at the heart of the action. Quincy Market, the North End and Chinatown are all just moments away and if you're looking to delve a little deeper into Boston's revolutionary past then the hotel overlooks the Tea Party museum and Freedom Trail. Boston is extremely easy to navigate on foot and promises a wide range of restaurants, cafés and bars however, with 2 awesome Intercontinental options onsite, featuring: French and Caribbean rum and champers, you may find yourself slightly spoiled for choice. After a good day's stroll there's no better way to rest and revive than at the Intercontinental's 24-hour Health Club where you'll find a heated lap pool, state-of-the-art gym and relaxing steam room to help you ease into the evening. Finally, if it's a jolly good pampering that you're after (and why not?) then SPA Intercontinental promises: massages, treatments and beauty therapies aplenty.

I reserved for three nights including breakfast package for myself, my wife and our two kids. When I checked at front desk, I was told the restaurant would charge for the breakfast, but that the charges would be removed for each person as long as they had no more than one entree, one juice and one coffee drink.

I reserved for three nights including breakfast package for myself, my wife and our two kids. When I checked at front desk, I was told the restaurant would charge for the breakfast, but that the charges would be removed for each person as long as they had no more than one entree, one juice and one coffee drink. I got a similar story when I confirmed in the restaurant. When I got the invoice after checking out, I was charged for much more than this. I called the hotel twice and was told by the people I spoke with that this has been a broader problem and I’d be contacted by a manager. Never got a call back. Also called IHG and was told they’d look into this and get back to me. Never happened. I guess being an IHG Platinum member and just expecting people to abide by their statements was too much to ask. Be warned. This hotel will scam you and has no moral responsibility. Read less

The hotel is just about perfect. Check in was easy and the people at the reception area were very friendly. The room was an excellent size, including the bathroom, which is unusual these days. We had a view of the harbor, which was also very nice. There are two very minor things to be aware of. First, they did not sound proof the hallways very well, so anybody who is walking by you hear their conversation. Second, like many other hotels, there is an opaque window between the bathroom and where the bed is. This allows light to come in if there is more than one person using the room while the other one is trying to sleep. These two items did not take away from the overall excellence of the hotel, but they were bothersome. Read less

This is long overdue as I've stayed here many times but this is without a doubt the best hotel in Boston. I generally rather stay at Hilton or Marriott hotels but in Boston look no further than here. The inside is beautiful, staff is always on point and everything is always so clean. The location could not be better as you really could walk around… Read more

The inside is beautiful, staff is always on point and everything is always so clean. The location could not be better as you really could walk around the area and Seaport district is right there! I cannot wait to return! Read less
