On a sightseeing trip to Boston this hotel location wise was perfect.... However considering its price I'm not sure it was totally worth the price (+$400 per night) ??
On arriving into the hotel... It not your typical reception area that is warm and inviting...instead u enter via the carport and arrive into a marble maze. Nothing homely or cosy about it...just cold and clinical. Now check in was efficient and the glass of champagne a nice touch but I think we would have preferred a replacement small bottle of water each day. There was one in room upon arrival but it was never replaced after use. We were told we could bring our champagne to our room however the dirty empty glasses sat there then for the 5 day duration of our stay!!!!???
Also there was only one bathrobe in our room and we asked for a second one but it never arrived.
The rooms were "cleaned" each day as you'd expect at such rates but they were barely cleaned...the coffee making area wasn't even wiped down although the coffee was replenished, the bathroom floor wasn't swept properly although the towels ( even though we hung them up to indicate were ok) were replaced...except the face towels were forgotten!!!
However the room was of a good size and AC is provided but wasn't needed at this time. It was nice to have a balcony and a view of the Hancock tower. Wifi was also provided for 'free'!!
As mentioned in other posts the plumbing is rather noisy and the lifts very slow (4 lifts for 24 floors each with 30+ rooms)
The pool didn't have shower areas or changing rooms, and the emerald bar lacked atmosphere n charm. The restaurant could be reached by crossing the carport was ok, but breakfast not included in the price was grossly over priced and of a poor standard. However the rustic kitchen ( also thru' the carport ) was cosy n the food and service was ok!
Overall we were happy to be in Boston and the hotel location was great, so nothing would have ruined our trip...however on a value and service level I don't think I will be returning to the Revere.
