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.

My place to stay in Boston

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!)

very nice family location

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

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.

Fantastic!

We stayed one night. We arrived 4 hours early and intended to just drop our bags with the concierge and tour the city. The hotel immediately accommodated us and settled us in our room. The following day, we were permitted to check out but leave the car in the garage until we were ready to leave the city. Great customer service!

Great hotel for the $$

Came to Boston for just the weekend and enjoyed our stay very much. We went to Legal Seafood for dinner on Friday night, waited over an hour but, the food was good. Spent Saturday at Faneuil Hall and the Aquarium both, were within 15 minute walking distance. Had to pick up daughter at the airport on Sunday and it was 10 minute drive. Would absolutely stay there again!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Many attractions and restaurant within short walking distance; from Faneuil Hall to Aquarium to tours (of all kinds). This hotel is a great location.

My review of InterContinental BOSTON

The room was very spacious & comfortable. The bathroom was also very nice with extremely large tub & shower. Good location on the waterfront. Concierge also very helpful & friendly. Only complaint was no complimentary coffee nor coffemaker availble in room.
