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.

We had a great stay here. We visited with our two children and found the location to be perfect for going to the aquarium and walking around downtown. Very clean. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend!

The hotel is in a great location. Steps to the harbor and Tea party Museam. Aquarium and great restaurants are within walking distance. The rooms were nice and clean but not worthy of a 5-star rating. Little things like no water in the rooms (but would provide at the front desk). For the price, location and clean rooms I would stay there… Read more

The rooms were nice and clean but not worthy of a 5-star rating. Little things like no water in the rooms (but would provide at the front desk). For the price, location and clean rooms I would stay there again. The staff was few and far between but offer great service. You can tell this hotel cut staff so the 5-star experiences were gone with it. I am sure it was due to COVID and it would be nice to see the experience here when the Spa, Pool and room service were offered. Read less

Super location with easy access to major Boston sights and especially Seaport district. Check-in, check-out were very quick and efficient. If you choose a room with a water view, lower your expectation. Our room had a narrow partial in between the other parts of the hotel. The room was great, everything worked well, but only one bathrobe for two… Read more
Super location with easy access to major Boston sights and especially Seaport district. Check-in, check-out were very quick and efficient. If you choose a room with a water view, lower your expectation. Our room had a narrow partial in between the other parts of the hotel. The room was great, everything worked well, but only one bathrobe for two of us... There was a fire alarm warning at 6:15am Sunday morning, but we did not have to leave the room... Not their fault, I guess. Good stay. Read less

Great location near downtown and north end. Room had a nice waterfront view and spa-like bathtub without any special requests. Seems like there's a nice waterfront park area for warmer weather/post-covid.

Service and location great. The service and gracious service makes us come back every other month and we have our favorite people. The front desk agents are the best in the industry and they know us by first name. Room service always on point.
