“Go ahead - compare to a W Hotel - I did!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

First time in Boston with friends as we try to escape the heat for some cool air and catch a glimpse of Fall. The Revere is by far comparable to a W or Kimpton style hotel, the rooms are spacious (320+ sq feet, do your research on sq ft when looking at other hotels), clean, balcony and a variety of luxurious bathroom amenities to appeal to any particular taste. Making the reservation with Wes was easy, he even upgraded us to a high floor (24 floor total) knowing it was our first time. We arrived into a modern setting for check in as the intoxicating scent Thyme & White tea surrounded us. This signature scent gets pumped into the lobby specifically, not the room (as I asked for it of course) to create a more inviting atmosphere.
The concierge - Richard was friendly, had a distinct knowledge of the area and did not send us to "tourist traps" as we specifically requested him not to do. With a limited time he to soak in the history that Boston holds, the 1 day trolley tour was worth $29, you can add on a 2nd day as well if you have time. Yousef - the valet - he knows the city well and always had a smile on + a great memory as he asked us each morning how the prior evening was. This man even ran down the alley next to the hotel, whistled for a cab in the rain and walked me with an umbrella to assure my look for the evening for still kept - VIP service! I was in awe as his valet was full but he took time out to make me feel like I was a "somebody". You are truly lucky to have Yousef, please recognize/promote him, he knows how to make an impression on your guests. So does the rest of your staff, but overall Wes, Richard, Yousef stood out for us.
Need a night w/out leaving the hotel? Well just walk across the driveway to Emerald Lounge and your club/lounge/bar appetite will be satisfied. Talk to Katelyn at the door or manager Aggelos who will gladly give you a tour of the space, ask to see the Ruby Room. This place has guest dj's, packed on the weekend and being a hotel guest of the Revere is recognized :) Thank you.
For those that love the City (Manhattan), Boston is a nice change, more manageable, has many districts or areas but close by to walk to, take the T train or a cab, it won't put a dent your wallet.

Tips: Go to the Sam Adams Brewery in Jamaica Plains, its FREE and worth the cab ride. Donate something at the end or buy souvenirs, rainy/cold days, its FREE and the samples are generous and delicious. Not as lengthy as a wine tour, so go more than once, the gentleman - Alan/Ryan are easy on the eyes ;)
You cannot miss going to Giacomo's on Hanover in North End, don't care if its freezing or a line waiting outside, its worth it. Follow directions from the host, walk in when called upon, order quick (its all beyond delicious and super fresh) and bring CASH, only method of payment. Yes there are other great Italian joints on Hanover, but this one is worth is every night you're there.
Of course the obvious is Harvard University, check it out and walk around campus. Harvard Square is full of great restaurants, boutiques or people watching. Respect the students that stay in dorms over breaks, the campus can get busy with tourists, after all they're just trying to "make it" through the Crimson Tides.

Room Tip: Those who have trouble sleeping, ask for a high floor but NOT corner room. The middle rooms seems to...

We were only in Boston for 1 night and I wish it were longer because the hotel was so nice. The service was outstanding. Every member of the staff that we encountered was friendly and helpful. The hotel has been recently renovated and is very chic and modern. The room was comfortable and elegant with amazing views of the city. Our teenagers loved the heated rooftop pool. It is also very centrally located and easy access to anything in the city. I will stay there again.

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.

The rooms are nice, with a great attention to details in decoration. The hotel is centrally located and it is possible to walk to almost every intersting spot in Boston. The staff was helpful and polite. The breakfast brunch is pretty expensive but you can always walk accros the street to one of the numerous retaurants nearby. Considering the price of the rooms, we had the quality of stay that we were expecting for.

We spent five nights at the Revere in mid-September and could not have been happier with our hotel choice. Modern design in lobby is beautiful; friendly staff was ALWAYS ready and willing to help with anything.
Our room was quite spacious – again with nice modern decor. Loved having a balcony! Good bed, pillows, linens and bathrobes. And the shampoos, conditioners, creams were out of this world – SKOAH!
The location was terrific – two blocks to Boston Common and the T. On the edge of Chinatown, so we took advantage of the Thai and Vietnamese restaurants.
There is a beautiful rooftop outdoor area with plenty of lounge chairs, umbrella tables, etc. that is just outside the pool/spa/workout area.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to stay there again in the future!

We stayed in the Revere Hotel for 2 nights for sightseeing.

The Hotel is very Modern and renovated just a few moth ago.
We liked the location very much.

The tour bus stop ist just around the corner and the Herz office is across the street. You can walk to many places in boston, but two subway stations are also close to the hotel.

The staff was amazing, the room was very clean and in the 17th floor. We had a great view over the whole city from our private balcony.

The breakfast is very good and tasty. The hotel has a cooking show, but we did not try that.
Nice Pool!

Not cheap but worth the money!

Excellent hotel! That's all I have to say. Staff was amazing from check in to check out.

Parking at the hotel at $39 a night for self parking. Parking garage was clean and easy to find a spot. Parking attendant was very nice and helpful. The elevator wasn't attached to the hotel but wasn't far from the hotel entrance.

Check in was quick and easy. Since I was traveling w/my wife and child, we needed a room w/2 bed. This was the first hotel that I was able to find w/2 Queen beds instead of 2 Double bed. This was great. Even though they confirmed 2 Queen beds during check-in, they messed up and gave a King Suite. My wife and I loved this room and wanted to keep it but we needed to exchange for 2 Queens. They quickly fixed this issue for us.

Our room was spacious. Room had balcony which was nice. Rooms were recently updated. Bathrooms were updated and nicely done. Safe in the room. Sleep number beds. Big closet. Bar area w/coffee, water, ice bucket and wine bottle opener. Hotel also has free Wi-Fi which is great in my opinion. Our room was right next to the elevators and had NO issues w/noises after hours. I read some reviews on the AC/Heater unit being loud but I didn't think it was bad at all but then again, I can't sleep if its too quite.

The hotel lobby was small but done up nice. There is a pool which we saw but didn't use but looked nice. Off the pool was an outside balcony which is over the parking garage. Done up very nice and good views from here. The location of the hotel was great also. There was plenty of places to eat around the hotel and located one block from the Boston Common and Public Garden.

We also took advantage of the concierge desk. We dealt w/John Hallette both times who was amazing. He helped us navigate through the "T" (Boston's Subway) and also booked our tickets for the Duck Boat Tour.

We will be back at this hotel again. This was truly a great place and staff was amazing. Thanks Revere!!
