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.

Spectacular ocean views. Endless amenities. Discretion and anonymity all while standing in the epicenter of Beantown. Go. You won't be disappointed. Big enough to be invisible. Beautiful enough to impress.

I am an IHG member & was looking forward to staying in this hotel as it is the first Intercontinental I have stayed in. I have always stayed at Kimpton Hotels or Indigo & found them great to stay in. The location is awesome & great to be by the harbor. However the room was disappointing. Although I was on the 4th floor in a renovated room, 2 of the electrical outlets didn’t work. The mattress was not very firm and I woke up daily with a backache that took a couple of hours of walking to sort out. Also the sheet isn’t fitted so it would constantly come loose after any time in the bed. I had to adjust it numerous times. On a positive, the bathroom was beautiful and great shower. However the hotel cleaner didn’t provide new washcloths when cleaning up even though they were hung up & not thrown into the tub. I ate breakfast in the hotel only once because the prices were pretty high for what you could order. For example, $21.50 for a cup of coffee & oatmeal with fruit! Really. Yes it’s Boston but that seemed over the top. Would not stay here again. Read less
