Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LawTravels4 Worth the Indulgence
I had business in Boston (I usually do) and decided to splurge a little bit with a stay at this property. It was worth every penny.
First, I was able to have an early check-in which made my life ten times easier-the front desk staff were unexpectedly great in that realm. (The front desk staff and bellmen were wonderful generally, even though I had no further per se need for their services.
Second, what a location. I had a gorgeous city view, including of the local firehouse, and the hotel is an easy walk from South Station (even with bags) and to be on Boston Harbor? Awesome. The hotel is also an easy walk to and from Downtown and Beacon Hill.
Third, what a room! Although I ended up not working, the nook with the desk was a nice touch. I had a beautiful bed with little working lights over head, which were wonderful. The shudders between bathroom and bedroom were awesome-and what a shower and bath. (I indulged in the latter.) It was also a wonderful touch to have the iPod docking station.
Fourth, Mad props and compliments to the concierge who was working that Friday night. I believe his name was Matt-and he steered me in the direction of a great karaoke night in the Theatre District. I will definitely return to that karaoke event.
Fifth, Cheers to the Bar and the Restaurant staff. The room service breakfast was just right as a pastry and coffee plate (my compliments to my genial server), and it was a nice treat to sit at the Bar for an after work drink. The munchies were a nice touch and the Bartender was thoughtful company and kept them flowing, and also kept serving me water too!
My only concern is how many points I earned for this stay. I only earned points for the room and for breakfast, which has not been my experience at other, lower-tier IHG properties (I'd earn on everything.) Given the amount I spent, I would have thought I would have earned substantially more points.
But if the price is again right, I would absolutely return to this wonderful spot on the waterfront. Compliments to all of the staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WKJB Great place for tourists
This hotel is in the perfect spot for being able to get around historical Boston. They are close to trolley and boat tours, walking distance to museums, restaurants etc.
Sam at the front desk was very helpful in giving us a quick map of the area, where to go etc. He took his time and treated us like honored guests.
The view from our hotel room was awesome.
The packages the hotel offered helped us save some money and made it easier for us so we did not have to go out and buy tickets for everything. Highly recommended.

From being offered an early check-in to a much appreciated late check out everything including all staff members we spoke to was amazing. We would certainly recommend & if we get the opportunity to return to Boston we will return to this hotel.
Had the best bathroom of any hotel we stayed at..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by celebrating45 enjoyable experience in the cily of Boston
As a start to celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary we chose to stay at the Boston International Hotel. Access to the hotel and parking was easy. The check in process was fast and the ladies were delightfu and funl. A drink at the bar was relaxing. The view of the the city was a plus but being across from the Boston Fire Department headquarters was noisy at times but the nature was necessary. The room was beautiful. The only hesitancy was the bathroom opens to the back of the bed which was awkard. We had a wonderful dinner outside by the water, The wait staff were very accomating since we wished to split our meal. The food was wonderful. It turned out to be a very positive start to our memorable anniversary trip to Bermuda. Thank you for the care to details and we would definately return to the hotel.

This was our second stay at this location and we can't wait for our next excuse to go to Boston to stay here again! From the moment we enter the lobby our stress melts away. The hotel has a distinctive scent and it is pleasant and relaxing in the lobby, we would have spent more time there but it was so hard to leave our suite. We booked a room with a harbor view and it was simply stunning, day, night, clear, rainy, whatever the weather the view was spectacular. The room was incredible, no other words would describe it. We had a fantastic suite with a huge bathroom and great sized living/dining room. This came in very handy during the one rainy day we had on our trip since we truly felt at home in the room.
The bed was incredibly comfortable and I tend to be uncomfortable in hotels (we use a Tempur-Pedic mattress at home). The temperature was easy to regulate, the room was super quiet and the furniture was nicely arranged. We usually declined the turndown service, but the staff was certainly very attentive.
We did not use the pool or fitness center but walked through and they looked great. We did not use the concierge as we are both familiar with Boston and had our plans set before we arrived.
We ate in Miel, the restaurant in the lobby and had some of the best chowder we have ever had in Boston. The food was superb and the bread was simply outstanding. Our waiter was helpful and friendly. We were not terribly dressed up and I was concerned we would feel out of place, but it was just perfect.
I will say that we are Ambassador members, so some of the attention (note with my name on it in the room, etc) was linked to that program. I can't imagine anything that could have made our stay better.

This hotel has everything, location, superb staff, and comfortable clean rooms. From the moment you walk in the door you know you are going to have a good experience. There is a good synergy. I especially like the morning coffee at the small coffee bar. There is one particular staff member who recalls my previous visits. She knows that I have minimal vision in one eye and assists me in getting what I need and is always pleasant. The beds are perfect for sleeping. The bathrooms are the best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by motherdaughtersgetaway Great fitness area and good service
The hotel is located in the Financial District. This was kind of nice as a tourist since on the weekend, the area was quiet and not too noisy, but still close enough walking distance to major attractions. However, the choice of restaurants for breakfast on the weekend, given its location, is rather limited (basically only Starbucks).
The double rooms are a very nice size with a big bathroom but the beds/mattresses could use some updating. It would be better with Queen size beds and these could still fit in the rooms. The current double rooms have double beds only and the mattresses are rather springy and lumpy.
The fitness area is AMAZING, the changing rooms, complete with great showers, wonderful products and a steam room is DIVINE! Its just too bad that the pool is inside and that there is no outside deck. This would have made it truly perfect.
The staff was very helpful and the concierge very knowledgeable. Overall - 4/5 stars and a great hotel.

This was one of the best Intercontinentals I have stayed in. The service was impecable, especially from the concierge and front desk. The room was clean and comfortable.
The restaurant served great food although they should have a seperate area for functions. A little to much noise to have a quite meal.
Overall an excellent stay.
My only critism would be the staff at the bar, who tend to be very helpful to regular visitors but a bit brash to tourists.

Hotel was clean, comfortable and service was good. David and Charles in the Club Lounge are friendly and highly knowledgeable, if you are staying for leisure and need itinerary tips for Boston ask them, much better than talking to the concierge. Thank You!

I had stayed here a few years ago and was glad to come back. My experience was wonderful. Great location, nicely appointed rooms with a large bathroom that had a soaking tub and separate glass enclosed shower. I actually don't think there is a bad view because the water view is great, however so is the city view. I love the concierge level, it's definitely worth the extra money. The staff was super friendly and the surprise bottle of champagne, cake and lovely hand written note for by birthday made the experience even better.
The InterContinental made me feel very special on my birthday and we had a wonderful stay. Hope to be back soon!
*I gave 4/5 stars for knowledgeable staff because no one told us to get our car in the garage and not out front. Still a great stay :)

The Intercontintenal Hotel is situated in a very desirable location. It is close to many of the sights of Boston, The service staff were very accomodating and friendly. We had both dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant and were very pleased with both. The food was prepared to our liking and there more than enough to satisfy us. We will certainly return for another stay.

This was the first time we have stayed at your Boston property. It is an incredible hotel.
The property is beautiful and spotless. The location is outstanding. Management is visible. The valet out front and staff at the reservation desk were friendly and efficient. Our room was something we expect at a Ritz or Four Seasons: plush, sound proofed and spotless. Housekeepers were quiet, professional and efficient.
We had lunch twice at Miel Brasserie Provençale. The cuisine, beverages and service were great. The Sunday brunch with live jazz impressed us.
Your hard work and attention to detail have paid off--- this is a special property.

My third stay at Intercontinental in Boston. I really enjoy the friendly bar/restaurant with the outdoor seating next to the harbor. The ease of checking in/out and the attention to small details in the room make this stay enjoyable. Close proximity to Amtrak and ferry boats for whale watching, Cape cod and walking distance to the North End for fine Italian food is another plus. I can't wait for visit number four. See you there!!!

First time here. this is a lovely hotel and the room was a fabulous layout and amenities...however, being a business travelers it became an extremely 'exhausting stay due to a broken thermostat keeping the room at 50 degrees and the internet not working for half of my trip. As there was no guest book (only menu# I was reliant on the "at your service' person, who was closet and moved my belongings- not cool without a warning# despite the inconvenience, the part he replaced did not solve the problem I advise the Cust Sv person..again, non apologetic. I finally found the number for the internet company and got wireless fixed. Check in was great...although a request for a quiet private room put me over the fire station in a corner room with total exposure by the rooms next to me so had to keep my drapes polite but unsympathetic and merely ordered the service repair at 7am for air. Engineering finally arrived at 4:430 when I needed to leave for an event at 5 #I arrived to find they had been in my closed and could not enjoy the view. I need to return to Boston but not sure I would return under these circumstances. Great location, good food and bar, great bathroom and room. For the elegance and price #reduced by our generous host#, I expected a different level of responsiveness and service. Thanks for asking.
