InterContinental Boston, Boston, Massachusetts $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Opened in late 2006, this soaring blue glasssheathed tower is a stone's throw from South Station. Like many modern buildings, it has a contemporary mahogany-and-marble design scheme, but in an effort to stand out, the 424-room Intercontinental has adopted some thoughtful touches. Sliding wooden-shuttered windows behind the king-size bed open the sleeping area to the bathroom, which is equipped with a sunken tub and glass-enclosed shower. The ergonomic furniture makes working on the road more bearable. And phones have caller ID to give you the option of privacy. The downstairs spa and gym, with an infinity edge lap pool, looks out onto a park, while the restaurant Miel, fashioned after a Provençal brasserie with matching decor, has fantastic views of the Fort Point Channel. If you're up for a stiff caipirinha or an even stiffer rum, RumBa (RumBar, but with a Boston accent—get it?) is handsome and perpetually humming with hotel visitors and well-to-do Bostonians. Sushi-Teq serves up an unlikely combo, sushi and tequila. Guest rooms occupy only eight of the 22 floors (the rest are taken up by condominiums, public spaces, and function rooms). Be sure to request a room in the north tower, so as to overlook the harbor.
