I attended an exhibition at the Hynes conv. center and did not want to stay at the hotels near the center and so I chose to stay at the ICH since I found they had better amenities then the other hotels. My wife was none too pleased with how far she thought we were from all the shopping, but give it time you can learn to navigate to places like Boylston St. and Newberry St. We took the duck bus tour and the horse drawn carriage rides and both were nice and informative. I like having the site of the actual Tea Party just outside the back of the hotel. Try Anthony's Pier 4 seafood restaurant (great food#.
-Large and beautiful bathrooms.
-Very good weight room and indoor pool, however, no hot tub or steam room.
-No hot tub.
-If you’re going to put out free fruit in the weight room area please do so abundantly and keep the basket full.
-In room coffee maker somewhat hard to figure out #single serving machine).
-Yes, the Boston firehouse is directly across the street from the hotel entrance and yes they make many runs and make a lot of noise.
-Pillows are like marshmallows and I like a sturdy harder pillow.
-We stayed on the 11th floor and the water pressure is noticeably reduced and it takes the hot water some time to reach higher temps.
Room Tip: Never ate food at the hotel, go across the street left of the fire house and get breakfeast and coff...

I booked this hotel hoping to have everything in one. We wanted to get away but stay in Boston, be by the water, have plenty of food options, and get a massage. Well my friends...we did here. We kept asking ourselves,"Are we still in Boston?". The minute we pulled up outside, and the car was whisked away, to our the great concierge, Marc, who prior to our stay had some great details mapped out, for our very lazy journey, the stay was great. I got a little frustrated by our splotchy internet but then I figured, "Get off it lady and relax." So I put my tired body in that deep tub and chilled. I felt very fortunate and blessed to be able to afford such a treasure that a lot of people can't, and this place is a treasure.

We recently spent our 25th wedding anniversary night in Boston. With so many hotels to choose from, we are so very glad we chose the Intercontinental. Everyone was so amazing making our special day so memorable... from the moment we entered the door... until the moment we left. The room was fabulous, the spa was amazing. We plan on making the same trip every anniversary! Simply the best! A & K

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tali GOT AN UPGRADE TO A SUITE
We made a reservation online. It was a special birthday and I wanted a really nice room, but did not want to pay through the roof. When we checked in, we asked for an upgrade,and the lovely girl at the desk, upgraded us to a junior suite for no extra charge. it was great! For that reason, I would totally stay at this hotel again. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious and nice view of the city. The only negative was there was no empty refrigerator. We had our own drinks and we had to move many items out of the snack bar temporarily to put our things in. Otherwise great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Benny85 executive level but do they really want children?
Outstanding dining room that seems to be underutilized, while bar is hopping. Extremely clean with excellent housekeeping. Beautiful flowers and wonderful calm in the lobby. Excellent professional staff.
Suggestions include: Asking each person if they desire a newspaper (include others besides the daily Wall Street Journal) at their door or leave more by the elevator; If harbor view is requested, fulfill that wish even if higher price is required; Complaints about room noise should be delivered via phone, not by door---- People above and around us were noisy at 2 AM, yet we received a complaint about "running children" at 3PM!!!!; Have a lobby room filled with fun things to do for children OR cater only to the business/executive crowd.

This was the second time we've stayed at the InterContinental in Boston. We love this hotel and the staff. The rooms are beautiful and clean. We will stay here again when we come back to Boston.
