I've been traveling for almost 20 years, and never have I been so lucky to stay at a true Five-Star hotel (The closest in my distinct memory was The Crowne Plaza in S.F./Union Square in 1994). My family was treated with respect by a truly professional staff starting from check-in on Sat. 09/19/2009 through our check-out yesterday 09/25/2009. We had two separate rooms booked through United Vacations - My parents had Room 955 and we had Room 957, with Stunning views of the 'new' Downtown Boston skyline and the new BFD HQ's building across the street (The occassional Fire Engine Siren didn't bother us). Honestly, It was fun to watch the Fire Dept do their thing and I went across the street to meet them (They allowed me into the garage and see the Big Red Engines =) Very nice). The rooms were simply luxurious from the wonderful work desk and flat screen TV to the nice bedding and inviting all-glass shower stall in the oversized bathroom stocked with amenities...PROBABLY THE FINEST HOTEL EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD!!! To add what other reviewers have noted, this hotel will charge you for basic goods (However, in a strange way my parents wanted a coffee maker and were willing to pay for one, the hotel provided one to their room at no charge...) I used the bathtub and used it a container to stock my sodas and milk and fill it with ice (Saved $$$) The parking is CRAZY at $39 a night, but we knew it and had no problem with in-and-out privileges (We made the valet folks work O.T. =) We're from L.A. and this was our first trip to Boston, but we honestly made one mistake from the very start - we had a rental car. We didn't need a car as the 'T' took us to many places (We used the car for Cape Cod and Salem, MA) Next time, TAKE THE 'T' and leave the car at HERTZ. The Pool and Spa was great, as for the RumBA Bar we didn't experience (But quite noisy as we were coming back at night). In closing, I was impressed with InterContinental Boston and If anyone in Management is reading this, Our family wants to say 'Thank You' for making us feel welcome for the six days we were in Boston. Keep Up The Great Work. Peace - JG
