InterContinental broke into the Boston market in 2006, with the luxury brand's first New England hotel. The 22-story glass-sheathed building (the hotel occupies the bottom 12 floors) faces the Rose Kennedy Greenway, not far from the Financial District and convention center. It's about half a block from Boston Harbor, and guest rooms on the east (back) side have lovely water views. All are decorated in polished contemporary style, with plush earth-tone fabrics and dramatic artwork. Rooms are large enough to hold a comfy chaise and oversize work desk, and bathrooms are huge, with separate tubs and showers. The spa, health club, and varied dining options (not to mention the condos that share the building) amplify the residential feel. With over-the-top amenities and helpful service, the InterContinental brand consistently earns repeat business from its predominantly corporate clientele. At these prices, I'd expect nothing less.
Facilities: Restaurant (24-hr. Provençal brasserie); 2 bars (sushi/tequila, rum/champagne); indoor pool; 24-hr. health club; spa; concierge; business center; 24-hr. room service; babysitting; laundry service; same-day dry cleaning; club-level rooms; rooms for those w/limited mobility.

The room was nice. Thought pretty tacky to charge $14.95 if you wanted wifi in room when the rooms are already pretty pricey. Our room had a view directly into another building where...

Message from InterContinental Boston
Standing on the very spot where a late-night tea party ignited the American Revolution, InterContinental Boston puts you at the heart of history in ultra-modern style. Adjacent to the Financial District, our gleaming glass towers are a short walk from Faneuil Hall, Back Bay, Chinatown, Beacon Hill and the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
