Enjoy the blend of Boston's rich historical background with its sleepless financial district, at the riverfront InterContinental Boston. The hotel offers a contemporary stay on the very site of the original Boston Tea Party, with blue glass defining the look and feel of the hotel, and chic restaurants like Sushi-Teq offering a unique mix of sushi and tequila tasting. There's a welcome shot of red in the decor at RumBa Bar, its private Champagne Bar resembling a Moulin Rouge-style boudoir. Work out in front of that endless skyline at the fitness room, or embark on your own adventure in the hotel's 2-acre herb gardens, possibly settling at the continental-style plaza with a glass of house red in hand.

Neighborhood
Located right in the midst of the city financial district, the hotel is also within reach of the historic sights of the brick-lined Freedom Trail, with a starting point at Boston Common, less than a mile's walk away. Down at the waterfront, visitors can also marvel at the living Amazon rainforest and pacific reef exhibits at the New England Aquarium. It's in this area that you'll also find some of the city's freshest seafood offerings, in places like Legal Sea Foods. For culture-heads, a trip across Fort Point Channel leads to the Institute of Contemporary Arts.
Hints and tips
For those who prefer more silence than sound while on holiday, the rooms facing the waterfront offer the quietest stay.

Don't miss the delicious hot canapes served during cocktail hour at the hotel's lively Club Lounge or, if you're after something a little more 'street,' Quincy Market is worth a visit both for the design of the old market buildings and the grazing opportunities with everything from hot bagels to frozen yogurt.

Luxurious hotel, bland location

We stayed here while visiting colleges in the area. We weren't familiar with Boston and didn't have much time to spend exploring. There were no obvious places to eat that we could find within walking distance. We thought that the hotel was more centrally located. We had the option of paying more for a water front room but did not take it as we were only spending one night. We didn't realize that the Boston Fire Dept. was directly across the street. That being said, it was a beautiful hotel.

Hotel Review

We were promised a room with a king bed but after spending all day walking in the city we were told that the room would not be available until the next day. When we discussed this with the manager, a room miraculously appeared. Not very happy with the checkin staff.

Poor management

For this 1st class name hotel, look like people that work there were hired from the street..we keep having problems with the room and bills that charged to us which were not from us..also they kept put wrong name in our room. We hope they did not try to add any charge from s.o. else to our credit card after checkout. Another things are with the room price we paid, there is no amenities like coffee maker in the room..no free internet..everything you needs will have to pay extra with high price like internet $6 for 15 min. use...parking $39 for each time we park...morning coffee..needs to go downstairs to purchase...etc.. Also the hotel is across from the fire station so expect to hear the siren everyday..even in high floor.

Beautiful hotel on water

Close to T lines and can walk to Fanuiel Hall and other tourist spots including Aquarium. Beautiful lobby and very nice rooms with 2 FULL (not queen) beds. Have to ask for ask for coffee maker and 4 towels. Everything else was great in room. Nicee bar with great area outside. Sixteen year old son could not use workout room which was disappointing. Fire house across the street and was loud at times. Fire alarm went off at hotel about midnight one night. Barking Crab and Legal Seafood are in walking distance and very good. Many good places to eat in North End and GREAT pastry shops. Again, in walking distance. Took the duck tour and it was the worst one I have been on. this was my 3rd. Tagged on one of the walking tours and it was great. Went on whale watching tour and saw several whales. It was good. Climbing to the top of the Bunker Hill is worth the view. Great city with alot to do. ENJOY! Still a great trip and place to stay!

Excellent choice. Hotel was lovely

Hotel was in the best location..near wharfs, yet not in crowded area (Tall Ships was in town.) Clean, new, modern, and helpful staff. Good choice, which I would not have found if not for Orbit deals. 5 star was good.
