InterContinental Boston

    Like mainsails straining against a spar, the concave- and convex-walled towers of the new InterContinental Boston appear to billow over the city’s waterfront, including the location where the Tea Party occurred in 1773. From the U-shaped, pewter-covered bar in the hotel’s RumBa lounge, you can view the tea-dumping site while sipping a more potent beverage that also played a part in Boston’s past. The city was a hub in the rum trade during the Colonial era, and the libation’s link to Boston lives on at RumBa, which stocks 70 premium examples of the spirit. Accommodations The highlight of the 424 guest rooms and suites is the 3,300-square-foot presidential suite, which features a library, a baby grand piano, and views of Boston Harbor. Facilities The 6,600-square-foot spa and health club includes a 45-foot-long lap pool. The hotel also has a business center and two harbor-view ballrooms. Club InterContinental members have access to a private lounge. Dining Miel, a Provençal-style brasserie helmed by Michelin-two-star chef Jacques Chibois, serves fare indoors and on an outdoor terrace overlooking the harbor. Salsa music and Spanish, Japanese, and Mexican fusion food set the tone at Sushi-Teq, while rum and Champagne are the focus at RumBa. Concierge Recommends A private culinary tour of the nearby North End. Visit the area’s finest salumerias and pasticcerias before Dining on Peruvian-accented southern Italian fare at Taranta Cucina Meridionale. Rates From $325 for a deluxe king room to $6,000 for the presidential suite.
