                      • The Waterfront location was great and the hotel itself was beautiful and well taken care of. The hallways/lobby were completely clean and staff were friendly. The suite was amazing and wonderful and the service at breakfast was also good and the bar was lively. Gym and pool were incredible.

                        Less than 5 minutes to South Station, honored Government Per Diem rate on busy weekend in Boston and the cost for the size of the room and the set up.

                      • The location was phenomenal, hotel was clean and the bar in the lobby and the restaurant were very good. Staff were very helpful and rooms were large. The food was great, conference facilities were excellent.

                        The place was busy and the service was exceptionally slow, the tv had very bad reception.

                      • In a good location, on the water and just down the street from the T, best thing about the hotel are the rooms. The lobby is beautiful, the staff are more than friendly and shower cabine is very nice an comfortable. Elevators are fast and bars excellent mix service &.

                        No city view like stated the reservation was made and internet was expensive @ 14.95++ per day. Pillows were too small and restaurant was slow.

                        Worst service received in a hotel ever, the lobby bar gets very loud at night and some of the room furniture was a bit dated.

                        Food and service in the miel restaurant was slow.

                      • The Waterfront is a good location as its close to the tube underground and in all honesty, this hotel is new and clean. The bathrooms are gigantic.

                        The staff at the intercontinental are poorly trained.

                        Poor appetizer selections at the bar and lousy service, mediocre food options.

                      • Great location and nice hotel. Loved the clean, modern design of the lobby and rooms, very helpful staff, the bathroom was well done too. The restaurant was good, the Spa was one of best we have been to and had our best massage ever.

                        Bad singing, cell phone conversations, etc and service downstairs in the bar. Food looked expensive.

The staff is helpful and pleasant, rooms are large, the breakfast is excellent. Pool and spa are all nice and there was no problem getting spa appointments.

                        Not overly expensive by Boston prices and the service was cordial without being intrusive. The beds were okay, not ultra comfortable.
