Very comfortable, relatively quiet and good value at the moment. Room was good sized and ideal for working at the desk. Breakfast was good and I was pleased to be able to dine in-house. Check in and check out were easy and efficient. Pleased with the location and recommend this property.

Given it was during Covid and given my IHG membership level I expected more than a room with a view of the building next door, especially being a hotel on Boston Harbor. However having said that maybe due to Covid there was less flexibility and I should be more forgiving. There were mistakes made during check-in with membership numbers and at check-out with the wrong name and address on my bill. But all was corrected. The bartender Dave was extremely nice and made up for any frustration. Parking was a bit confusing as I was informed that it was valet only but no one came out. I had to pull into the garage where it said "Valet Only" which lead me to believe I could not drive down the ramp but that is exactly what they wanted you to do. The website states self parking but that was not available. Anyway expected better instructions especially since I had called and asked prior to my arrival. Again possible it was due to Covid rules.

Dear Jack, Thank you for choosing to stay at InterContinental Boston and for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay. We appreciate your feedback are glad to see that you had an overall nice experience with us. We regret that valet parking caused confusion, and any frustration this caused. Our Parking is a garage where inside it is Valet Parking only. We try to communicate this as aggressively as possible due to Covid. We do hope that your experience on this visit would not dissuade you from staying with us again if your plans bring you to Boston. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Laura Ward Director of Sales and Marketing

Wanted to enjoy this hotel but just so many small things added up to make the experience less than favorable. Stay was fine but spa and pool were closed and no indication to that fact on Tripadvisor at the time we booked - only found out at check-in. However, the InterContinental had an agreement w/ the nearby Boston Harbor Hotel to use their pool and facilities. The walk to the hotel is only about .25 miles away... while that was nice, just wasn't the same as relaxing on the premises. The location of the InterContinental is great - right on the greenway, easy walk to the North End and just outside the Seaport District. The way the property is run though is what made us regret this stay. Small things like unwelcoming valets, unsympathetic front desk staff (we forgot our charger and book in the room), and an extremely rude general manager (do not come down late after check out or he will likely get visibly and physically upset w/ you) all added up to this being one of the worst highly rated hotels we've ever stayed at. Rooms were well appointed and well kept. RumBa bar is overpriced and patrons need be aware that NEAT (no ice) and ROCKS (ice) cocktails incur an extra $3 charge (¯\_(ツ)_/¯). Bar is well stocked. Bartender (at the time) could use a refresher course in mixology.

I recently got engaged at the InterContinental Boston and I was truly blown away by the staff going above and beyond to help my fiancé pull off a surprise for me. Anilta was incredible and even helped my fiancé choose a room to pick the one with the best view (the room we had had a stunning view of the water and city). Everyone from the valet attendant to the front desk staff worked with him to pretend he was checking in for the first time when we arrived together even though he had checked in by himself earlier in the day to prepare the room. The next morning Anilta was at the front desk checking us out and congratulated us and was so friendly. The hotel, room, and view were all amazing but the staff’s commitment to its guests really blew us away. And we felt very safe with all the health precautions the hotel as taken, as well!

Excellent sized room with a fair view of the water. We loved the comfy king sized bed, the surprise sliding door over the bathtub and the separate shower. The robe was a nice touch, to step into after a long, hot bath. The cleanliness was apparent everywhere, from downstairs in the shared spaces to the elevator and the entire room. We felt safe inside, especially because you cannot use the elevator without your room key. The minor things we did not like are: No refrigerator. We did not like that the bar closed at 9 pm. I loved the location on the water. We were able to use a water taxi because there is a dock out back. Very Convenient! Also near enough to walk to many of the tour's starting points. I highly recommend the InterContinetal!
