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
A very good hotel. Great bed, excellent room. The restaurant was very good too. The front desk and concierge were exceptional. Only one shortcoming. I asked for a taxi only to find that I was directed to a limousine without that being made clear to me - I was too embarrassed to say no when that became clear. Not good. Otherwise a very pleasant stay. But I might see how other hotels compare next time.
Hotel is very nice, great location, but the best part of it are the people working there, who will really do their best to make your stay pleasant. Uros deserves a special mention and a big "thank you" (better late than never), as well as Mamta.
Spontaneous overnight after a long workday. I was looking to relax and celebrate the end of a season. The hotel was in a perfect location for what I wanted to do. Staff was great, room was clean and relaxing. I’ll happily stay there again.
I loved staying in the Intercontinental Hotel on my recent trip to Boston , the room was very clean and spacious, with a great sized bathroom.. it was serviced every day and kept spotless.. The food in the restaurant was really good and the bar was lively,,I would definitely stay in this hotel again if I ever travel to Boston and would recommend this hotel to any of my friends traveling there.
Recently stayed VIP Floor which was just fabulous. Great for a early evening cocktail and snack. Breakfast on Saturday alone was work the upgrade. Intercontinental just gets it right. Great spacious room extremely comfortable bed. Sliding shaded glass window to bathroom is a bit odd but we've been here many times so not a surprise but if its you first time it can be a little intimidating . I love the shower and the wife loves the tub both separate in the spacious bathroom. Rhumbar and Vodka bar is a happening place happy hour. Last note I'm an Ambassador club member well worth the cost, best perk is the 4pm late checkout.
