This waterfront property provides the traditional luxury of the InterContinental brand. Overlooking the Boston Harbor, guests can select from Classic, Executive and Suite room types, all with floor-to-ceiling windows. Executive rooms provide Club Level services that include complimentary snacks, drinks and breakfast in the lounge, as well as free in-room Wi-Fi. The hotel provides a number of restaurants, including a sushi bar, a French-inspired cafe (that looks more like an elegant dining room), and champagne bars for mom and dad to enjoy during date nights.

- Waterfront location
- Onsite dining
First let’s start with the good parts: bed linen lovely, bed comfortable, room and bathroom a good size.
Less good: location - miles from the shops and the sites (except the Boston tea party place), the room I had was by the elevator which bings announcing when one is arriving - can’t they turn that bing off at night?, the menu - next to nothing gluten free and when I rang to order the man on the end of the phone didn’t even know if the ‘make your own salad’ could be gluten free or not!
If I hadn’t been staying here for a conference, I wouldn’t have stayed here....
We stayed here on points for one night. The staff treated us wonderfully. Logistically, not far from public transportation to the airport or Cape Cod. Very nice rooms. Our view was of the office building next door---watching the conference rooms there did not leave me wanting to return to Corporate America.
