On my recent (and first) trip to Boston, I stayed at The Revere, which is conveniently located near Boston Common and many other historical places of interest. I had heard of this charming boutique hotel via Instagram and just had to check it out. The hotel opened on April 18th 2012, which was the 237th anniversary of Paul Revere’s infamous ride (hence the hotel’s name). Comprised of 325 guest rooms, 30 suites and one penthouse suite, this hotel is THE place to stay in Boston’s trendy South End neighborhood; as well as being a popular destination for live entertainment, dining and nightlife.
The interior of the hotel is contemporary with modern design, sleek furnishings, sculptures and timeless decor, thanks to BBGM Interiors. The front desk staff are friendly, knowledgable and eager to help with anything one might need. The staff uniforms were designed by Massachusetts College of Art & Design Senior students and were also locally manufactured by Classic Apparel in Everett, MA. After check-in, we took the elevator and were whisked away to our suite on the 19th floor. Once inside the suite, we were amazed at how spacious it was. The entryway had dark hardwood flooring that gave way to the sizable carpeted sitting room and bedroom. We had the option of stepping out onto the balcony from both the sitting and bed rooms. The balcony had sweeping views of the downtown Boston skyline, Boston Common and the Statehouse. The sitting room featured a cozy houndstooth couch, large LCD TV, oversize desk and mini bar (for a fee). The bedroom featured a Sleep Number bed, large LCD TV and a closet with sweet surprises: like a comfy robe and slippers (so welcoming after a long drive). The bathroom is located off the entryway and is quaint and minimal. I enjoyed two luxurious nights, bathing under a large rain shower head and washing off with their skin-care products of choice-Vancouver based Skoah. (Dear Skoah, the body wash was AH—mazinggg!) Then I spent the rest of the evening bundled up in the robe, relishing in the moment with the complimentary wifi and the latest episode of “Real Housewives of Orange County.”
The hotel’s amenities include a fitness center, business center, Emerald Lounge (nightlife), Rustic Kitchen (for dining), 225 seat Theater 1, a 35,000 square foot event space and Space 57- a 6,700 square foot multi-functional space. There is also the “Rooftop at the Revere”- the seasonal bar and lounge located on the seventh floor, near the indoor pool.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to use much of the amenities, as we had limited time, but so much to see and do. However, the hotel did not disappoint and was the perfect way to do Boston ‘right.’ The bonus was that it had a lovely balcony that didn’t make me feel like I was closed in. The staff was incredibly friendly- thank you to the gal who helped check us in on September 1st and to Tim. I was not really able to see the ‘Rooftop at the Revere’ in action, however the staff allowed me to check it out at night so I can see the dramatic views of the city.
It was a delightful experience and I hope to enjoy The Revere on my next visit to Beantown!
Huge thanks to Bryan!
