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
First let’s start with the good parts: bed linen lovely, bed comfortable, room and bathroom a good size.
Less good: location - miles from the shops and the sites (except the Boston tea party place), the room I had was by the elevator which bings announcing when one is arriving - can’t they turn that bing off at night?, the menu - next to nothing gluten free and when I rang to order the man on the end of the phone didn’t even know if the ‘make your own salad’ could be gluten free or not!
If I hadn’t been staying here for a conference, I wouldn’t have stayed here....
We stayed here on points for one night. The staff treated us wonderfully. Logistically, not far from public transportation to the airport or Cape Cod. Very nice rooms. Our view was of the office building next door---watching the conference rooms there did not leave me wanting to return to Corporate America.
My friends and I spent a night at this hotel last month and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hotel is beautiful and in a good location. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and helpful especially the club manager Sheb Schumar. He was very friendly and accommodating. We truly felt he went above and beyond to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We definitely had a great time at the hotel lounge and up in the Intercontinental Club where we enjoyed good food, drinks and service during happy hour and for breakfast breakfast! I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel as I had a great experience!
