The Intercontinental Boston is in a great place, close to all the interesting history of Boston and accessible to the public transit (MBTA). The rooms are second to none! The bartenders are very capable and happily accommodated all my drink requests. I love staying here!

This hotel was the best starting point of my first trip to Boston. As I am here for work, the open space for my company's event and the food & service has been top notch. I feel very welcomed when I enter.

We recently spent our mini-moon break weekend in Boston staying at the Intercontinental Hotel. The staff were fantastic from the moment that we arrived through until the moment that we left. We stayed in a King room on the 9th floor with Club Intercontinental access. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. The bathroom was ample size... More

This hotel is a fantastic weekend getaway. It's in a good location, so it's a walkable distance to the Aquarium, the Freedom Trail, and Faneuil Marketplace. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are well-appointed, and service is prompt. The concierge was very helpful and gave us good advice on where to eat and which shows to watch.

Down side - carpet in room was not 5 star quality. Towels & robe were somewhat "rough" & not soft to touch. Up side - literally everything else.

Location was super convenient. Rooms were super quiet and comfy. We all slept well. Kids loved swimming in the pool. Large comfortable seating area in front of a fireplace, made the lobby a home away from home for our family get together. Staff was friendly and helpful. Thank you.

The temperature in the room was set to 68, which was too hot for us...it was impossible to get the room cool enough to sleep. We made several attempts to rectify with concierge. Other than that...everything else was excellent. Especially the staff...very friendly, helpful and attentive!!

Although we thought this hotel was a little pricey, we loved almost everything about this hotel and in the end decided that it was worth the cost. Location - It was a 10 - 15 minute walk to pretty much everything we wanted to see and do. The fact that the Boston Tea Party (which is not to be missed)... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
