Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KenJG Excellent customer service.
The service level at the Intercontinental is outstanding. I stay in Boston often when I have to work in the city and I recently started to stay at this hotel. On my recent visit I was upgraded to a penthouse suite. Certainly one of the best rooms in Boston. When I realized I had forgotten my charger, the front desk staff offered to charge my dead cell phone. Parking is easy and the restaurants are excellent. No reason to stay elsewhere.

I couldn't believe that you didn't include internet with your accommodations. Very poor set up for a business traveler.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by loudy nice hotel......terribly noisy guests
The hotel is very nice and in a good location BUT we had a horrible stay.
Came into town to just relax over weekend only to have the room next to us filled with a number of loud people. We put up with noise till midnight, thinking it would stop, but by 1am it was still going on. We called security who did come up immediately, told the people next door to keep it down. The quite lasted for about 20min but picked back up till the group finally left at 3am!
Nice relaxful sleep, NOT!

Amazing location, amazing views, walking distance to the north end. Cannot beat this hotel, rooms are clean and new, great bathrooms. Breakfast and included cocktails and snacks are outstanding! Always stay here when visiting the best city in the USA.

We were only at the hotel for 1 night while traveling from Portland Maine to Alaska. Our room was upgraded and had a fantastic view overlooking the Boston Harbor and the Tea Party ships. The staff was friendly and most helpful with tour information and restaurant recommendations. Made for a smooth and enjoyable trip for our 1 day to "do" Boston. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarryW Highlight of our holiday
We were visiting Boston as part of an East Coast holiday for our 25th anniversary. From the moment we arrived outside the staff were welcoming and friendly and did everything possible to make our stay really special. We had the Ambassador suite and it has to be one of the best hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. The suite was huge and the views from the floor to ceiling windows were absolutely amazing. The facilities were excellent and I look forward to paying a return visit. A very special hotel in a wonderful city. Thank you so much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAP59 InterContinental Boston
Really nice hotel! Really clean, nice, and comfortable. Only negative was that the front desk staff didn't explain whether or not there was any perks for Priority Club members, so we were not aware of anything special (like hors douevres, water, etc.) that might have been available and didn't think to ask until we stayed at a Crowne Plaza on the way home and found that they had amenities like that just for rewards members. Also, a minor thing, but we had a rug in the bathroom the first night that they took out when they cleaned the next day but never replaced. Also, we booked several weeks in advance and stayed 4 nights, but we still got a room that faced an office building. I would have thought that being rewards members we might have gotten a better view, especially since we had booked a few weeks prior to our stay. All of that being said, it was still a great place to stay and I would go back again.

My wife and myself have Ambassador cards, which are supposed to provide room upgrades and some other perks. Upgrades have sometimes been very good, sometimes not so much; and on this stay, water and fruit were never delivered to the room, in spite of our repeated requests. I believe every IHG hotel management should be as attentive as possible to fulfill the Ambassador card benefits.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mbrauns One of my favorite IC hotels!
Upon arriving late from a delayed flight, this was a refreshing sight. Absolutely loved this grand hotel. The lobby bar/restaurants had great ambiance and the drinks were delicious. The staff was courteous and friendly (also very helpful!). Now... the rooms = beautiful! Luxurious, clean and spacious. Have to say, this is probably one of my favorite Intercontinental hotels I've stayed at. Also, the hotel is close proximity to just about everywhere you want to go in Boston. Highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Panepane Comfortable room and fair atmosphere
Room was very comfortable for a family ( two adults and a child ) and bath equipment too. Breakfast atmosphere was extremely fair and service was more than adequate. Breakfast room chief was able to speak Italian and this helped our understanding limited by our poor English.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mjrc staff
We were totally astounded at the treatment we received when we checked in to the IC Boston. I booked through the hotel website, with 2 e-mail confirmations which followed. So, we had a statement of the rate we chose. However, that was not the rate we were given upon check-in. The staff attendant was very rude and said that could not be the rate and insisted that hers was correct, She asked for assistance from the other attendant who was also rather rude. After I showed them my e-mail confirmation they decided they would check us in at that rate. We left for our room feeling rather degraded and not believing the way we had been treated by these people. We enjoy staying at this hotel and have stayed here a number of times. We plan to stay there in the future but do not want to be treated in the same manner, The morning staff seemed to be more attuned to service.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jacksondc Reservation, Bar and Restaurant Issues (and really, what's left?)
I made 3 reservations for two ambassador members and made one separate reservation on points. Here's a hint - don't. Even though the reservations have to be physically split well before check-in, the hotel refused to recognize both Ambassador members. Each member must make their own reservation. WHY? No idea. And the points reservation was given the worst room in the house - literally 3 hallways away from us and facing an office building that was so close you could see who was calling on the caller ID. The bar nearly refused service to anyone who didn't have a cleavage and the restaurant charged folks 2.99 for a cup of coffee or not, depending on what you look like. The guy in front of me had to pay, I had to pay but the guy behind me didn't. The desk, concierge and bell staff were friendly and all, just enforcing rules that don't exist.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffTampa Great Hotel, Great Location, and Great Staff
Stayed six nights and had an unforgettable time. Staff was fantastic and the club level and concierge personnel especially were noteworthy. Location is central with easy access to restaurants, sights and metro; no need for a car. Hotel is relatively new and room comfort and space was outstanding. Club level is worth the extra cost. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for in this case. By the way, the exercise room was excellent and I am pretty picky.

Carpet had stains. Heavy dust could be seen under the bed. Check in was slow and staff was not welcoming. Our parking was mixed up with another guests. It's hard to believe that you still charge for internet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobinsNest Terrific Staff...
...From Joe, the doorman, to the front desk; from the concierge to the bellman, a terrific staff. Friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. However, this extra effort does not spill over into the cleanliness of the rooms. Housekeeping clearly values quantity over quality. Phones, remotes, and furniture smeared and hastily cleaned...Well-located, and a lot of activity in the lobby.

The hotel was clean with easy check in but had to wait until 4:15 pm to check into the room even though we pre-registered at 2:00 pm that day. Check in time is posted as 3 pm.

I love staying at the Intercontinental in Boston. From the always upbeat and knowledgeable staff, to the finely appointed rooms, everything is wonderful. I especially enjoy a morning coffee on the veranda. The sun rising, and the peaceful presence of the harbor form the perfect way to start the day.

Luis the Concierge and Steve the Doorman were both very helpful. I called Luis to get roses for the room for my wife (our anniversary). They were the best she's ever gotten and we've been together for 17 years. Steve the Doorman suggested an excellent restaurant for breakfast and was always offering help when we exited the hotel. The room was plush and clean. I couldn't recommend a better hotel.

The total experience was very pleasant. Starting with the bell men who helped us out of the cab, to the courteous and efficient agents at registration, everyone was very helpful. Our room was beautiful with a great view of the harbor. The Meil restaurant on the first floor is very good. The hotel is top-notch in every respect.

Thank you to the whole team at the Intercontinental, Boston!!! This has to be the best stay in over 8 years of international travel.
The staff went above and beyond their duties to make this a very memorable stay. This was a birthday treat and it certainly lived up to its reputation!!
Thank you again, an outstanding stay.
