The Intercontinental is at the heart of the waterfront area of Boston. It is a fantastic luxury hotel at an affordable price and still lives up to expectations. We could not be more satisfied with a hotel experience as we were this week.

It was clean and beautiful

Getting in touch with the hotel was difficult to get into on early check in. The bathtub was dirty and unusable. Somehow there was no top sheet? For a hotel as nice as this purports to be the experience was disappointing.

great location.

We recently stayed at the Intercontinental for a weekend birthday getaway. It was beautiful, clean, and the staff was welcoming and friendly. This is a great place to stay if you want to explore Boston on foot as it is very close to everything. Cannot wait to return!

Pros: The service at the hotel was outstanding. The actual property wonderfully located and in good condition. Cons: The contracted valet parking service was pretty unfriendly. Gives a bad image for the wonderfully service-oriented hotel to be honest.

The intercontinental hotel is nice for a stay in Boston. It was convenient for walking around the city and close to public transit. Check in and out was quick and easy. However, the room was really dusty, the phone didn’t work to call the front desk, there wasn’t enough toilet paper and the pillows are entirely too small. In addition, I had a drink at the outdoor bar and the server came back and announced loudly that my card was declined. When I checked my bank app, it shows a charge for the drink still days later. Overall, I was disappointed and would choose to stay somewhere else on my return to Boston.

Perfect location in the city and the best service we have received in a hotel in a long time.

Beautiful hotel close walk to attractions!

Property is amazing. Beautiful, clean, amazing staff. Easy to park with valet and an easy walk everywhere. Right on the water. We will stay here again.

Staff was great. Room was clean. Perfect experience

worst experience I had in the US - the receptionist wasnt' friendly, room was for two but there was only one bathrobe and no wineglasses so we asked and the unfriendly guy confirmed they will bring it to us but nothing happened!

Beautiful and clean hotel in a great location. The staff was friendly and the restaurant downstairs was nice. My only feedback is that given amenities are closed with Covid, it would have been helpful for there to be some guide, either digital or in the room, of what is available as it was hard to figure that out.
