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.

The Intercontinental is lucky to have Jack as part of their staff. He made check-in a breeze and also made us feel celebrated as a couple on our honeymoon. His customer service is excellent!

Our room was absolutely beautiful! It had some of the best views of Boston we’ve had. The room rivaled some of our favorites at the Ritz and other hotels. It is covid so only the bar is open, but the rooms are so nice you are happy to just hangout there! We will be back. Read less

Large comfortable rooms. Very clean and great harbour side location close to South Station and walking distance from most restaurants and sights. Only one bar ( which also served food) was open during COVID and there was nothing available at breakfast that we saw but perhaps you needed to order in advance. Good mask protocol and friendly staff.

Our King bedded room was large and comfortable. I would have rated the property 5 stars but the panels separating the bath from the bedroom emitted too much light into the bedroom. There is an onsite restaurant which served excellent flatbread pizza. Read less

We were so excited for our two night trip to Boston. The hotel was beautiful and in a great location. We were excited to be the first guests in a newly renovated floor. Once we got into the room that night, I went to draw a bath for my 8 yr old. The second I grabbed the removable nozzle, I felt a searing pain in my hand. Immediately I started… Read more
We were so excited for our two night trip to Boston. The hotel was beautiful and in a great location. We were excited to be the first guests in a newly renovated floor. Once we got into the room that night, I went to draw a bath for my 8 yr old. The second I grabbed the removable nozzle, I felt a searing pain in my hand. Immediately I started bleeding everywhere. My daughters were crying. I couldn’t get it to stop so I called the lobby. A man came and took pictures and helped stop the blood. I took pictures as well. Once we cleaned and bandaged my hand, he called the cleaners to perform a hazmat clean up because of the blood. That’s where my care ended. I was given bandaids and additional ones when the bleeding wouldn’t stop. I didn’t want to go to the hospital because I was alone with my two young girls. I was in pain and I couldn’t swim with my girls or really enjoy my special time with them. When I returned home to R.I. I had to have my finger glued shut. I have tried to get in touch with someone. No one ever calls me back. I call and they tell me someone else will call and then no one ever does. I cannot believe that I was treated like this by such a reputable hotel My visit was ruined and I was in pain. Not one person has cared. Horrible. I would share a picture, but not pretty!

Pool was fine although it felt along with the changing rooms that it could do with a freshening up. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would return Read less
