The sleek and luxurious InterContinental Hotel Boston, one of the city's most spectacular waterfront hotels, offers sweeping water views of Boston Harbor from higher floors.

Located at the edge of Boston's Financial District, the InterContinental is a favorite with business travelers. 

If you're a leisure traveler, you'll love the location between the Rose Kennedy Greenway and Ft Point Channel.

Look out your windows, and you'll see gorgeous sunrises across the water, sailboats heading out to explore the Boston Harbor Islands, and ferries bringing passengers to and from nearby wharfs.

The InterContinental Boston truly gives you the best of both worlds - a resort-like experience close to top attractions, terrific restaurants, Boston's Theater District, and our award-winning TD Garden sports/entertainment arena.
