My wife and I stayed at the Revere Boston Common for three nights. A nice little birthday getaway for my betrothed to see this interesting city.
Transportation to the hotel can be had by cab for around thirty dollars with tip or by Boston’s “T” subway. There are many subway lines crossing the city and the easiest way to the hotel is on the blue line from the airport to Government station and transfer to the green line to Arlington station. It is about a five minute walk south from there on Arlington Street then turn left on Stuart Street. The hotel is on the south side of the road. The transit system costs $2.50 per fare or $11.00 for a day pass.
We arrived early before check-in time and expected to just drop off the luggage and do some sight seeing while our room was being prepped. Happily the room was ready so we could refresh from our flight before heading out into the city. We had a king room that was very spacious with all the expected amenities. Bed was soft (I like it that way) with nice soft pillows. If a soft mattress is not to your liking ask at the desk for a hard bed. Room 2211 has a soft mattress. They also have a pillow menu where you can order the type of pillow you prefer. I have seen this at a few other hotels and it is nice. The only complaint I can make about the room is the adjoining room door is thin and you can hear the guests in the next room. The pool is nice and warm to sooth sore muscles from long days sightseeing. There are no showers or change rooms on the pool level just two washrooms. A nice robe is in your room that you can utilize though.
The only other thing that I noticed is that the lobby is infused with some heavy perfume, for me it is just a bit too much.
All in all this was a very nice hotel near to everything. If you can get a room for a good price, this hotel is a good bet.
