                            The best part was necessarily the SPA, gym and swimming pool which can make a major diffrence in any hotel stay.

                            The staff manning the cafe and restaurants clealry requires more experinence and effectiveness.

                            Very nicely appointed room; good location; good bar and restaurant

                            Given the price, internet should be free.

                            Bed was good, nice room size, windows on two sides

                            Pillows were too small and squishy

                            Fancy, nice rooms.

                            Price, computers did not work, took an hour to check in, tv did not work, would not extend my check out time by an hour...very pricey for what you get.

                            They did not provide us with flannels

                            that i paid for room with harbor view, and could see only a tiny amount of harbor when facing out the window.

                            We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant. The food was not well prepared and what should have been served warm was cold. Would not dine there again.

                            The location was phenomenal and also the luxury of an Intercontinental hotel was superb. My room was very comfortable and I loved the bathroom... I wanted to stay another night just to enjoy the tub.. Only got to use the shower...

                            The hot water in the shower took a while to come on..finally it did.. The bell hop needs to tell people what goes on in the room, heat, airconditioning..television....where the ice machine is.. The Williard in DC does this and I've experienced it in other Intercontinentals. They even get your first ice bucket for you...and they ask what newspaper you want in the morning.. i did not even know I got one until I was checking out.. Also you need a restaurant with normal food. Too many gourmet places on the premises. No place to get a normal breakfast except for room service. If there was I couldn't find it..

                            Nice room decor, view, and work space.

                            service downstairs in the bar and restaurant was slow and unattentive.

                            We had a good stay at the InterContinental in Boston. We stayed for one night on the final night of our Honeymoon. I really liked the hotel and it is to a high standard, the room was great.

                            My only gripe was the fact that the staff didnt seem that interested in you, we had to queue for 30 minutes at check in and when we got to the desk there was no friendly smile or appology for the delay just take the name, sign here and off you go. I felt I got the same rushed unpersonal touch from the concerige desk. Would it put me off going back, no but it was a bit of a let down given the type of hotel and the cost of the room. Also it didnt really effect us but I was shocked that they charge $14.50 for wifi per day, and if you want to use the PCs in the "business centre" its $6 per 30 minutes for the internet and $1.50 per page printing. They do however give you free access and there is no printing charges for printing boarding passes which is all we needed it for, however if I was there on business I would be a little put of by those charges, given the fact we stayed in other hotels in New York, Boston, Maine and Cape Cod on during our stay and they all offer free wifi (which seems standard these days).

                            Well located by South Station. All the staff were very helpful. I had a late departing flight for Europe and as able to stay a bit longer in my room, and then in their lobby to work. They provided me free Internet access so that I could work. Very comfortable bed.

                            Some of the room furniture was a bit dated.
