Excellent service and beautiful room. Received flowers from staff when I told them we had to leave a day early because my mother passed away. Great location. Would stay at any Intercontinental again and again.
This hotel was wonderful! The staff couldn't be more pleasant or accommodating; the room was spacious, spotless and had all the amenities; the restaurant Miel (never got to sample to Sushi Restaurant, much to our dismay# was outstanding; the
location is literally 1 block from South Station and coming in by train from NYC made this ideal! It is also located right on the waterfront, so we were able to go for a nice walk along the water after dinner. We will definitely stay here again #and again, and again!)
The Inter-Continental Hotel is a luxurious hotel, with very comfortable rooms that have spacious bathrooms with separate glass shower enclosures as well as luxury linens on the beds. The location of the hotel is close to Quincy Market, and is an
easy walk to all the historic sites in Boston. We especially enjoyed the main floor bar/lounge that offered unusual rums by the glass as well as a wonderful selections of champagnes by the glass. The food in the lounge and the dining room was excellent quality and very good value for the money. We understand the need for an indoor pool in Boston's winter weather, but the pool area was very spartan, very few chairs, no staff taking drink order. In fact, spartan is a generous term, the pool area is austere - they should add some tropical plants, comfy lounges, a bar for cocktails, etc. Why make the entire family go up to the room, get dressed, and go down to the dining area if the kids need a bite to eat. Serve them poolside.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Quincy Market offers great smoothies and Rudi's has wonderful omeletes about a block away from the hotel. Legal Seafood, an easy walk, where the food is excellent & Mare (rated the 80th best restaurant in the world). Do not miss seeing the JFK Library on MIT's campus - it is a spectacular presentation of JFK's life and accomplishments.
This hotel is beautiful. The bar inside and the bar on the water are both very nice. The rooms are immaculate(we had a deluxe waterfront room) and very unique. Beds were very comfortable, bathroom was very roomy and the view was GREAT.
highly recommend this place and will use it the next time I'm back in Boston.
very nice access to the aquarium and the historic sites of the North End. Great access to the T to get anywhere in downtown.
Worth the money to upgrade to the club level. Very nice breakfast and plenty of free food and drinks at the end of the day
