InterContinental Boston

A sleek property on the scenic harborfront
InterContinental Boston sits on Boston’s waterfront, just steps from Faneuil Hall and the up-and-coming Seaport District. The 424-room hotel opened in 2006, giving Bostonians and guests access to a new luxury option on the water.

In addition to the stunning view, InterContinental Boston has three different dining choices, a spa and health club, and expansive meeting space. All of the Italian marble and Texas limestone lining the lobby and hallways are certainly attractive qualities, too.

In an effort to help boost its greener options, InterContinental Boston also established a beehive on its roof, allowing the production of fresh honey for the hotel’s dishes and cocktails.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• The 22-story property also houses residences between the 14th and 21st floors and a revolving boutique on the lobby level, which features local designers and artists throughout the year.

• Stop in to the hotel’s RumBa bar, located in the center of the lobby, for a rum-inspired cocktail, and take in the colorful Boston accents that descend on the place after 5p.m.

• There are three restaurants at InterContinental Boston and one large outdoor venue deck. The restaurants and bars span cuisines — Miel Brasserie Provençale serves French restaurant specialties; Sushi-Teq is a unique sushi eatery that features some of the rarest tequilas in the world; RumBa is the hotel's main bar, which also serves light fare and fresh seafood.
Things to Know
• During the summer months, the hotel’s two-acre garden is a hot spot for Bostonians looking for a great place to enjoy the fresh air and sun. Get here early, though, as this is one of the few outdoor and on-the-water dining venues in Boston, so the place fills up quickly on pleasant days.

• During the winter months, you’ll find that the hotel shifts from a mostly leisure-travel guest roster to a more business-minded crowd, thanks in part to its easy access to Boston’s Financial District.

• During the warmer months, the InterContinental Gardens — a two-acre waterfront promenade outside the Boston hotel along the Fort Point Channel — serves various items from each of the hotel's dining venues. If you’d like to experience the gardens, get there early, especially in the summer — the green space works on a first-come, first-served basis.

• The hotel is close to various financial offices, including the World Trade Center and International Place. It’s steps from the Boston Greenway parks and Faneuil Hall, and sits just across the channel from the Boston Children’s Museum and ferry docks.

• For those arriving to the city by train, Boston’s South Station is just two blocks from the property.
The Rooms
• InterContinental Boston has 424 guest rooms and suites. Each guest room has a 55-inch flat-screen plasma TV, high-speed Internet, work desk, pillow-top mattress and a bathroom done in mosaic tile and granite that has a separate soaking tub.

• Commissioned artwork hangs in each guest room and suite. On top of that, the specialty suites offer a separate sitting area and, in some instances, a dining area.

• All of the guestrooms offer views of either the skyline or the waterfront. For members of Club InterContinental, the 12th floor of the Boston hotel is the members-only retreat, where you’ll find workspace areas, a private boardroom for up to eight people and culinary presentations three times a day.
The Look
• InterContinental Boston brought a modern vibe to the waterfront district when it opened in Boston in 2006. The mirrored hotel stands tall along the Fort Point Channel, sticking out against the historically ornate waterfront buildings that line the Boston Greenway.

• Over the years, however, the waterfront area has welcomed new restaurants and retail spaces, making InterContinental Boston feel a little more at home on the waterfront.

• The hotel is elegantly designed with sleek lines, mirrored walls and contemporary furniture throughout its lobby and public spaces. Each of the guest rooms and suites features simple, but modern décor, which is merely meant to complement the main attraction: the stunning views of the city and waterfront.
