Fodor's Review

Call it the anti-boutique hotel: the 424-room InterContinental, facing both the waterfront and the Rose Kennedy Greenway, consists of two opulent, 22-story towers wrapped in blue glass. In a nod to the city's history, the skyscrapers are the height of old ships' masts (and are curved like sails), and the pewter bar at in-house RumBa would surely delight metalsmith Paul Revere. The lobby gleams with Italian marble, and hallways are lined with Texan limestone, lending the large space a sleek, upscale aesthetic. Upstairs, guest rooms are wired with the latest technology and have flat-screen TVs and spacious bathrooms done in mosaic tile and granite, with separate tubs and showers. Other draws are the 6,600-square-foot spa and health club and a pool that overlooks Atlantic Avenue and the Greenway. Sushi-Teq, the hotel's strange-but-good sushi-tequila restaurant, regularly draws lively crowds, while movers and shakers from Financial District banking, real estate, and law firms make merry after work at the aforementioned RumBa. The hotel's brasserie, Miel, serves organic Provençal cuisine.
