Housed in gleaming glass towers along the waterfront in Boston’s Financial District, the InterContinental is a popular pick for business and leisure travelers thanks to its comfy guestrooms and suites, which offer minibars, work desks and floor-to-ceiling windows with city or water views. After a long day of strolling around the sights, hit the spa and fitness center for a hot stone massage and a dip in the heated indoor pool. For dinner head to Miel Brasserie, where Provençal fare is served indoors or alfresco with water views, or enjoy light bites and cocktails at Sushi Teq. End the day with drinks overlooking Fort Point Channel at VodkaBa, which features more than 60 versions of its namesake spirit. Afterward head to RumBa for rum cocktails, champagne and dancing to Latin and Caribbean music until the wee hours.
In the Area
Boston is America’s walking city, and the InterContinental makes a perfect home base for exploring the sights. It’s located on the very spot where the Boston Tea Party took place. Learn more about the event that sparked the American Revolution at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, a five-minute walk from the lobby. Head to the Flour Bakery along the Harborwalk for a breakfast of freshly baked muffins, hot from the oven. Follow the Harborwalk path to Long Wharf and visit the New England Aquarium, followed by a trip on the ferry to the Boston Harbor Islands to see Civil War–era forts and lighthouses, or go fishing, kayaking and more. Back on the mainland, walk the Freedom Trail past such famous sights as Faneuil Hall, The Old North Church and the Paul Revere House on your way to dinner in the North End. Make a reservation at fine dining Italian Mamma Maria (we can vouch for the osso buco), then line up for dessert at Mike’s Pastry, which is known for its out-of-this-world cannolis.
How to Get There
I was watching my 3 grandkids while my daughter attended a conference in Boston. She picked the Intercontinental because it was close to the Children's Museum and Aquarium. The rooms were wonderful and quiet. The pool area was nice and large. The staff was incredible from the moment we arrived. They gave the kids little stuffed marine animals & bottles of water. They even gave me ideas on appropriate places near by that the kids would enjoy. The subway station was just down the block making it super easy to travel. We walked all over and really enjoyed the area. Each night they would come turn down the sheets, leave bottled water and chocolates. It was a great experience- especially considering my grandkids were all under 6 years old.
Hotel is in a perfect location. Great sleeping rooms, as well as meeting space with plenty of windows. Food is wonderful. Very friendly and great service from the front desk to the bar. And the art work is great.
Hotel is impeccably clean. Service is excellent. Very nice view of the harbor from my room. Staff was courteous and helpful. Some early morning noise from alley adjacent to the room. Very close to both the financial district and the federal courthouse. Large room. Very comfortable bed with a great, roomy bathroom. Highly recommend for business travel.
I loved my stay at the Intercontinental Boston. My room was comfortable and the hotel offered excellent amenities like the fitness center and spa. My flight did not depart until 9pm my final day, and they encouraged me to enjoy the facilities through the entire day until I left- Incredible service!
I have stayed at this hotel several times with my children and I have been pleased every time. The staff are accommodating and the location is central to downtown,the North End and the Seaport. The Sunday brunch had great options for my kids and was delicious.
