Great location, room, pool, staff, view and price at the Revere added up to a fantastic stay for our family during a week-long trip to Boston. It's tough to imagine another hotel in Boston offering this combo of quality, place and value. Many big-city hotels come with major compromises--e.g., gorgeous lobby but teeny-tiny rooms; or a big brand name with indifferent staff. At the Revere, you get the complete package from start to finish--friendly and well-trained staff (including front desk, concierge, housekeeping and maintenance); a surprisingly spacious room (by big-city standards), comfortable beds, linens and nicely oversized bath towels; and a large, just-right-temp indoor pool--all wrapped in an attractive and nicely finished decor.
On the elevator, a staff member said the hotel's owner had spent more than $25 million on renovations, and the effort shows--you won't think you're at a former Radisson. The location is within easy walking distance of a wide variety of restaurants, Boston Common, and T stops for the Green and Orange lines.
Only critiques: wish the room came with a mini-fridge (our balcony subbed as a fridge during our cold-week stay); the 4 main elevator banks can become VERY busy when the hotel is at capacity, in part because there's no separate elevator bank for staff; and the hotel's lobby, while chic, attractive and moodily lit like a modern-art museum, doesn't really invite guests to linger. There are only about 6 soft-surface chairs in the lobby. That's in contrast to the current/future trend in hotel lobbies (as recently reported in the Wall Street Journal) that have remodeled themselves as oases for travelers who don't wish to hole up in their rooms or walk down the street to Panera for a coffee, comfy chair and WiFi connection.
