Intercontinental Boston

Boston, USA

Virgin rating

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 thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our recent stay in Boston, we travelled with our 3 year old for medical, and at all times the staff could not have been more accommodating- we were warmly welcomed at check in by Maxx - and from then on we felt humbled by the attentive service - the recent renovations and upgrades have brought this already modern property back with a clean fresh vibe - thoroughly recommend this intercontinental hotel within walking distance of the tea party and children’s museum - overall a stellar experience at this hotel.

I arrived at the location and realised that I had left my phone, whose casing also had my credit cards, in the Uber. The Uber had already gone. So having come in from Australia, I would have been completely stuffed with no ability to pay - even for my hotel room. I really needed my phone for all kinds of reasons.

I arrived at the location and realised that I had left my phone, whose casing also had my credit cards, in the Uber. The Uber had already gone. So having come in from Australia, I would have been completely stuffed with no ability to pay - even for my hotel room. I really needed my phone for all kinds of reasons. In a panic I asked for help from the front desk. This is the when I saw try extraordinary service kick in. They tried to login into Uber but with two factor authentication which requires your phone, that was a no go. Next was FindmyPhone. But I needed internet access which required a credit card to operate in the Business Centre. This is when Harold used his own personal credit card to sign me in! Then Francesca who was finishing her shift stayed with me for a good 90mins while we tracked the movements of my phone. She also put in the phone number for the driver to call in the hotel. Finally, Francesca said we have your Uber driver on the line, come speak to him. Which I did and arranged to get my phone. Phone was delivered 30mins later. PHEW!!!!! I have travelled a bit all over the world but this by far was service beyond boundaries!! Kudos to the entire service team! I wasn’t even staying at the Intercontinental but had come to meet someone! I now heading to Toronto and guess where I am staying? Intercontinental Toronto Centre, of course. Read less

Very nice hotel in great location. Walk to Fanueil market and the north end. Rooms are very comfortable with great city views. Had sausage pizza in room. Fantastic. Inilta Monteiro, front office supervisor, was a great partner for room and breakfast. She is a huge asset to the IHG team.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel in Boston. It never disappoints. Very clean and we were on the 10th floor with a beautiful view of the greenway. We were surprised to have a large soaking tub which the children enjoyed. One recommendation is to provide bubble bath for these rooms. Room service was excellent. The hotel is walking distance to the wharf and the hotel is close to some great restaurants. They have a sitting area outside with a bar and family activities. The childrens museum is also across the river so walking distance. Read less
