Revere Hotel Boston: Stay Trendy In Beantown

Last Updated on

Champagne and Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Revere Hotel Boston

Ole Beantown, land of staid, traditional sensibilities and aesthetics, has been emerging of late into chicdom, at least where hotels are concerned. Jury’s (now Lowe’s) led the boutique hotel brigade in Boston, carving trendy accommodations out of a Victorian-Era police station. Next, the sassy Liberty Hotel, which rose from the granite shell of the old Charles St. Jail, stirred up buzz worldwide. And now, the new Revere Hotel (this is Boston, after all – just picture Paul galloping by on his “midnight ride”), elevated the former Radisson Boston to artisanal standards.

Vibe: Revere Hotel Boston

Modernist, minimalist, house-music, scented air – the Revere Hotel is a departure from traditional lodging in one of the country’s most college dense cities.

The lobby is an oasis of neutrally toned soothing calm and contemporary art – nothing zippy here.  Check-in includes a flute of sparkling wine offered by cool, yet helpful staff: you won’t be fawned over, but you also won’t be ignored.

Rooms: Revere Hotel Boston

Tawny rooms are large and unflashy, with mid-century hound’s-tooth chaise lounge, beige leather headboard, burnished hardwood floor entry, and splashes of heather blue, orange, and lime green. Framed graphic art on the walls showcase quotes from Shakespeare – a nice nod to academia.  I love the locally sourced Boston skoah. products in the white subway tile bathroom, that come in environmentally friendly pump bottles – a plus for those who find tiny shampoo bottles a big waste (like me).
