Okay, new owners and have dumped some money into this place. The money went into the lobby, some paint and some new rugs. The rooms - well nothing was really done to "improve" it. New rugs and new wallpaper, but the electricity cables are covered by those ugly plastic caps. No closet. Instead you have a coat rack and the safe is not secured to anything - you can actually pick it up and walk out w. it. Ironing board is leaning against the wall. Same heating/cooling systems (aka circa 80's), old alarm clocks w. no Ipod/Iphone adapter and the same ugly dark brown doors. Furthermore, they say "on Boston Common"? err, not really. Its literally a few blocks away...but whatever. They need to gut each room and improve the layout otherwise its like a Holiday Inn. I give it two stars. They say they are trying to get 4 stars...well, you have to dump 8 more digits into this place to get it there. Too bad the other Starwood Hotels were sold out... disappointed

I stayed at the Revere with a friend for a long weekend in order to explore Boston and enjoy a girl's weekend.  However, the hotel was very disappointing from the minute we stepped in and I would not recommend this place to anyone (unless you have very low standards). We arrived at the hotel at 2:45 pm and approached the front desk to check in.  When we told the woman at the front desk that we were there to check in, she quickly informed us that our room was not ready (she did not even ask for my name) and that check in time is not until 3 but there is a chance our room would be ready before that.  I did not appreciate her rude attitude but it was not 3 yet, so we sat in the lobby to wait.  During this time, we watched several other people check in and be greeted with champagne while we just sat and watched.  We began to think perhaps we were being discriminated against for being young as it did not seem fair.  It was now 3 and there was now a lengthy line at the front desk so we got back on line.  By the time we got to speak to someone at the front desk (now a man), it was well after 3 pm.  He informed us that rooms with two queen beds were not ready yet in a matter of fact tone of voice.  When I voiced my lack of appreciation for the other woman's shortness with us, he seemed dismissive and continued to ask us to wait.  I do not understand this as I am paying for a room starting at 3 and needed to check in because we had somewhere to be.  The man continued to step away from the desk and was making phone calls to the housekeeping department in order to find a room..when he finally found an available room, he made it sound like he was doing us a favor...once inside the room, we found it to be clean but the disappointments continued...the water in the shower was always cold and it appeared that the shower head was not fully working...one day the maids came and took our dirty towels but replaced them with fewer towels..another day they did not arrive until 6 pm when we were trying to get ready for dinner!! we asked her to come back later but she said her shift ended at 5:30! On the last day, we ran out of toilet paper and there were no replacement roles to be found! On top of this, the elevators were very slow, the tv remote in the room would work on and off, and the beds were sooo hard!! we found one sleep number bed remote in the draw but  it did not appear to work for either bed! Upon checking out, I overheard another customer complaining about having a hold placed on her credit card..sure enough I found a $100 hold on my credit card as well after returning home..I know this is standard in many hotels but it would be nice to be informed of this charge! Overall, our experience in this hotel was not great and definitely not worth the money..I will never stay here again.

PARKING GARAGE problems - allow at least 30 minutes to exit the garage or you might miss your plane.  This is happening every day, management knows about the problem and does not care enough to put on extra help to open up a second exit line during busy periods.  Bad management knows, but does not care about busy periods.  Also the new pay machines are broken for days on end without repairs.  THE OLD MANAGEMENT could handle a busy downtown business.  NEW MANAGEMENT just doesn't care.

Hotel was okay.  Luckily we were upgraded to a nice junior suite, which made the stay nicer.  The hotel was recently renovated; however, the renovation was all cosmetic.  The mechanical components, elevators, air conditions, etc were still quite old and need to be updated.  The staff was friendly and the amenities were nice.  The hallways were pretty bad as they are not air conditioned and have a horrible smell to them.  The room was clean, but the upgrades must have been cheap quality b/c parts of the room was looking a little worn for being newer.  All said, for the price I would stay elsewhere my next time in Boston.

The room was clean and the view was great.  It was a nice quiet place to stay and was very confortable.  We did a couple days on the narrated bus tours and the stop was right in front of the hotel, very convenient.  It is a short walk to the Boston Commons Garden, nice eating places, but also Duncan Donuts, Starbuck, Panera Bread and more.  Short walk to  theater district and many or the sights.  We even walked from there to North End for dinner.  We felt perfectly safe being out at any hour.

I found the Reve to lack any real customer service in comparison to its high end competitors. The overall feeling to this place is that it has been renovated to feel like a boutique hotel, but falls short in its ability to maintain that same image and feel. My room had broken outlets, a broken iron, was noisy and was missing basic toiletries. When I notified the front desk, she was gracious and apologized and offered to move me to a premium room, which I accepted. I moved to the other room, one floor up and it was virtually identical to the room I had before. Outlets not working, noisy, etc. I was particularly frustrated to find the wifi basically unusable for work, it took 2-3min for gmail to load. I called the desk again and they said they were working on it -- over two days there was no progress made. I found the staff to be polite and wanting to help, but on more than one occasion I would be asked if they could call me back to answer the question I had and then never receive a call back. The breakfast at the Rustic Kitchen is pretty bland and expensive, but Heidi my waitress was really pleasant and was probably the favorite part of my stay here. Great for Heidi, bad for me! I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all, especially if you know what a hotel that costs this much should be doing to keep their customers satisfied.

My husband and I were so pleased with our recent stay at The Revere. We've stayed at a lot of nice hotels in Boston, from The Ritz, to The Liberty, Westin Copley, Sheraton, Renaissance, The Millennium, Seaport...Pretty much everywhere except a couple of the smaller boutique hotels. And although the Revere isn't as swanky as say the Ritz or Four Seasons, the staff is just as friendly and accommodating, the location is great, the price was right, and they take pets!

As a pet owner, I can say from experience, most hotels although they claim to be pet friendly, really don't live up to that claim. We've avoided traveling with our dogs because most hotels require extra fees for pets, only allow 1 pet per room, don't provide any amenities for pets, and more often than not require someone to be with the pet/pets during your stay. I can understand hotels wanting to avoid unsupervised pets from destroying rooms and being loud, but our dogs are crate trained, and very well behaved. They would probably be fine with a petsitter/dog walker, but I'm wary of them being with someone they don't know in an unfamiliar place. It's wonderful that The Revere understands this. They do provide dog walking services if needed, but we were thrilled to find a place that allows for pets to be left in the room unattended. Our dogs were warmly welcomed by every member of the staff, given lots of treats, along with two large plush beds, two dog bowls, bottled water. My husband asked the valet staff about Peter's Park, a dog park near by, and the valet kindly gave us a map with walking directions. He even recommended some restaurants near by for dinner.

We arrived at 3pm, the valet and bell staff were wonderful, promptly helping us with our bags. They even let us leave our car in out front for a bit when we checked out so we could take our dogs for a quick walk before departing. There was quite the line for checking in, a lot of people in town for the seafood show, but the reception staff happily greeted everyone offering complementary champagne and apologizing for the wait. The line moved really fast, I don't think we waited more than 5 minutes, considering there were 8 groups ahead of us, and only 3 people manning reception. The lobby was very nice, with several different spots to sit down, modern sculptures and art. Reception was a breeze, and we were even upgraded to a junior suite free of charge!

Our room was spacious,modern and clean, with two balconies overlooking the city. The Skoah toiletries were amazing. They have a pillow menu, we didn't use it, but thought it was a nice touch. The bed was a little hard for my personal taste, but my husband had no complaints at all. Some other reviews complained about the elevators being loud. We were located right next to the elevator, and we didn't hear the elevator at all. Nor did we have problems with the elevators being slow. No fridge in the room, but if you're traveling in winter, just put your stuff outside on the balcony. Didn't try the room service or concierge services, but the menu looked great and was told by a friendly couple in the elevator the concierge was fantastic. We didn't use the coffee maker in the room either, but there is a 711, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks just a short 2 minute walk down the street if the coffee in the room isn't your thing.  

We had a coupon for a free appetizer at the Emerald Lounge, so we stopped there for drinks and a bite before hitting the town. Very nice atmosphere and fun menu. We sat at the bar, and although there were only 3 other people at the bar, the bartender seemed a bit more interested in conversing with coworkers and two of the other customers at the bar, and we waited maybe 4 or 5 minutes before she came to greet us.  When she finally came over though, she was very friendly and helpful, offering menu suggestions and had no trouble accommodating our quick schedule. Drinks are a bit pricey, $13 for a small red bull and vodka, but the fig sidecar I had was really delicious totally worth the $13, and the duck spring rolls were quite tasty as well.

The customer service at this hotel is superb. I'm not easily swayed by ultra fancy accommodations anymore. Anyone can have that for the right price. But impeccable, and genuine customers service is invaluable. Everyone was helpful and friendly, and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. We will most certainly be staying at The Revere again.

Nice, but pricey.  I reserved my rooms at $279 a night.  When I checked out, the invoice had rates from $319 to $399 over the 3 night stay.  Price is my only complaint.  Had the rooms been at the rate I reserved, it would have been given higher marks.

Location is good for those wanting to walk to the theater district or piano alley.  There's plenty of restaurants across the street and within a block or two radius.  The Emerald Lounge and Rustic Kitchen are attached to the hotel. Legal Seafood is across the street.

Rooms and bathrooms are both nicely sized and have a good decor.  No microwave or mini fridge in the room, but there are $6 bottles of water.  

WiFi was free and provided good bandwidth.  I did not need to use my Droid hotspot.

My husband and I spent last night in a junior suite at the Revere Hotel. We got a great deal on living social, so we were pretty excited to stay the night at such a great location in town. The hotel certainly lived up to our expectations. The staff we encountered were all very nice. They even accommodated our request for a room on a higher floor. The junior suite was very nice too. Sure, there were a few cosmetic things that could use improvement, but you more than get your money's worth here. The suite was spacious and VERY clean. The bathroom was nice and the assortment & quality of the free toiletries they provided were great. The bedroom was nice too. Plus, I slept like a baby in the bed. It was extremely comfortable. And the view... Well, the view was breathtaking. It truly was. You just can't beat the location.  We had a few drinks and decided to get some room service late night (they do room service 24 hours a day) and we enjoyed that too. I unfortunately forgot the charger to my iPad, and they told me it will be mailed to me tomorrow. (which I thought was very nice & very much appreciate) All in all, this hotel is definitely worth a try. We live very close, but for a night out in Boston it's definitely where we will be staying in the future. The deal on living social was the cherry on top. Great value!!!

Really enjoyed this hotel.  Compared to other 4+ star hotels in the area (Royal Sonesta, Fairmont) it is nice but not pretentious.   Nice view of the city from the rooftop patio and pool. The beds were very comfortable.  Got a great deal through Hotwire.

So after spending a little more time here I thought I'd update and complete my first impression review of the "new" Revere Hotel.  Unfortunately I'm lowering my review to a 2 based on my observations and experience, which may not be the same for others staying here.  I'm glad to say that the construction noise did stop and must have been a small project so that was a good thing.  However, I'm going list off a few things I noticed that affected my view of the hotel 1) the toilet leaked every time I flushed it 2) the A/C was loud - probably because it had construction junk stuck in it 3) someone took my privacy sign so I had knocks at my door throughout the morning from the maintenance crew 4) the elevators are in need of some serious maintenance and actually feel a bit unsafe 5) every card reader needs to be replaced - it was like playing roulette trying to get up to my floor or into my room.  The card reader (after 7-8 times would finally recognize the card an let you in (and yes I did put it in the correct way each time).  I heard 3 other people/couple mention they had issues with their cards as well (Revere - probably ought to start here on your checklist) 6) the front door entrance never worked.  I always (the three times I tried to enter from the street) had to go through the side valet door. Revere - probably ought to fix the door that leads into your business, just a thought.  Overall it is an OK hotel, nothing more at this point.  I'll I can hope is that these items are on the list.  One quick note - their internet service was about 10mb down / 4mb up when I tested it and the concierge was very friendly and helpful so they have that going for them.

I dont want to start all the way from square one, but I guess Im going to have to. I only stayed for a night, but the front desk employee, (I believe his name was Wess?) gave me such a great impression that I felt like I already knew I was going to have a good night's stay. I went out to eat at flemings across the street with some friends, and we all came back to the room and we were all so impressed with such comfort and sleek elegance. Room service was fantastic, everyone was just incredibly courteous, and I hope Wess will be working again when I check in at Revere....The guy just makes the hotel slightly more memorable.

I've been traveling and living in hotels for 9 years now. This is one of the shittiest hotels I have been in. Sure it looks nice from the outside, but once you walk in you get sucked in. I was there for an extended stay 3 weeks. They never told us house keeping was once a week. And the second week they never showed up. Wtf. I've payed way less for way better hotels. The door men are rude as hell. I can't bring the cart up myself so they just wanted the tip. Had a package delivered and finally after it was there for three days went to the front desk and asked for it.  The lady was like what's the name. And I told her and she was like ok. And just ignored me. I finally said can you look please and finally was Like yes you do have a package. Wow really I told you it was there go get it. It's just the Ramada with a paint job.  It's like a pig with lipsticks. It's still a pig. I would never stay here again. Oh and the emerald lounge is a joke. Even with staying here three weeks they wouldn't let me in but let the guy in w dr martins. Such a highclass club. Bullshit. Worst hotel ever and I've stayed in hundreds.

My husband and I booked at the Boston park plaza even though the reviews weren't great the location was great so we didn't care. When we go there they told us they over booked and would send us to the Revere instead and upgrade us to a king big. We were happy since we knew our room there was tiny! When we got to the Revere we were already impressed by the modern decor. We were asked if we wanted a glass of champagne while we checked in (I felt so important lol) then we were upgraded to a junior suite for our anniversary. The people were amazing and the rooms were so modern and spotless! The bed and pillows weren't that comfy which I was surprised about but the suite was so amazing we didn't care! The rooftop deck was also so fun for apps and drinks and felt like a Miami club scene. I will totally be back and I am so happy for Boston park plaza and their big mistake! Another bad review for them!  Thanks Revere for an amazing anniversary night:)

"Ultra chic but what happened to sleep?"
Jun 12, 2012 traceme2kc
I would have given a higher rating if our air unit in the room didn't make it sound like a helicopter was landing on top of us through the entire night and the hallway wasn't filled with an overwhelming scent vomit. (We mentioned this condition to the front desk staff and it was not tended to.) More importantly, the room
doors do not have to momentum to shut automatically when you walk away. We saw several doors down the coridor open for unknowing guests. We finally
got in the habit of putting in an extra
tug for safety sake on our door. For the positive, Revere gets big plus marks for a better than usual redo on this former Raddison Hotel. This place is spacious and ultra chic. Attention to many, many details are evident. They just missed a few paramount points. I cannot sleep if the units are not in working order and that is ultimately what I am there to do. That aside, the restaurant connected to the hotel has a fabulous menu and outgoing staff. The Emerald Club, which maintains the hotel bar, just opened and needs bodies to finish the exquisite decor. It was stunningly outfitted. I appreciated that the staff didn't have to be dressed risky like many other hot hotels feel they have to do. We will go back in hope the hotel brings the full scope up to the standard they are obviously trying to achieve.

This was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed it. I have only great things to say. The front desk, concierge, and bellmen were all so friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable with a nice view. Housekeeping didn't come by until later in the afternoon so we didn't feel rushed to get out for the day. The location is fantastic. It's walking distance from just about everything, which was especially nice when everyone else iwas struggling to hail cabs. And their Emerald Lounge is nice as well. Highly recommended!!!

If I could give the wedding coordinators 5 stars, and the booking department 3 stars, that's exactly how I would break it down.

We originally booked the hotel for our wedding reception last year, when it was still the Radisson.  Before the construction began.  Even before they knew they would eventually be the Revere.

As I mentioned, the wedding coordinators were 5 stars.  Especially Ester, who handled everything the day of the wedding itself, and even for the breakfast the following morning that my parents organized.  She's absolutely brilliant, and her excitement about her job really helped us to put all of our trust in her for that day.  The food was absolutely wonderful.  Even better than it was when we came in for our tasting (apparently they'd brought in a new chef in between, and we are thrilled that they did).

I wish I could end the review there, but there really were big issues with their booking department.  To start, we set aside 20 rooms for our wedding block, and within days of sending out invitations, the hotel was claiming that all of the rooms were booked up.  But when I called to check, only 6 had been booked.  After that, it just continued to be frustrating.  Guests scheduled to arrive on the wrong dates, listed under the wrong names, and they even lost my husband's parents' reservation completely.  It was a confused mess and really needs to be dealt with for this hotel to succeed.

All that being said, everyone at the front desk was really nice and tried to be as helpful as possible despite the confusion.  In the end everyone made it into their rooms, but it shouldn't have been such a hassle.

A quick word about the rooms themselves:  They're fun and modern, but more style than substance. The rooms don't have refrigerators, so any leftovers had to be thrown out.  There are no overhead lights, and more than once I found myself tripping over the black square coffee table on the way to turn one of the lamps on.  Not to mention I hit my head on the big lamp several times.  It all looks great, but it doesn't quite work on a practical level.

I had to stay in a Boston Common hotel for a week, and would have chosen a Starwood property if not for the unusually high rates I found when shopping. I used the Revere as a fallback since it was just a block from the office.

The Revere has made a nice effort to be an upscale, boutique hotel, but it's just not there yet. It excels in a few areas and disappoints in others.

First, where it excels:
1. Lobby. Unique, modern and smells great, think of a Vegas casino like Venetian minus the smoke. Newspapers are plentiful and front desk staff is very nice and pleasant.
2. Rooms. I was upgraded to a junior suite and while the layout was a bit strange (I also tripped over the black coffee table looking for a light switch in the dark), the room's actual living area was set nicely off the main hallway, so noise was virtually nonexistent. Also, the rooms are nicely appointed with fresh carpet, GREAT soaps/shampoos and a comfortable bed. The bathroom in the suite is very small with zero counter space, but it's functional and gets the job done. Balconies provide private views and there is a safe, an umbrella and an iron provided.
3. Location. Fantastic area with everything from a public park to movies to tons of restaurants within walking distance.

The lows:
1. Internet. You can connect and stay connected to the free wireless, but the throughput goes to zero after about 10 minutes, requiring you to bounce the connection.
2. Hallways. Other reviewers weren't exaggerating - they do smell like vomit. How is it possible for EVERY floor to smell this way, especially when the lobby smells like a rose garden?
3. Elevators. Inefficient and should be much better since there are four cars. The lack of a service elevator and seemingly poor maintenance causes this problem. 5+ minute waits are common.
4. Service. The staff is really trying (for the most part), but they just don't get it done. The hotel offers a complimentary overnight shoe shine. I tried to use it my first night, no one ever picked up my bag. I told the staff and they "made a note of it". I tried the second night and again no pickup. I gave up despite the nightly turndown service placing the bag and instructions on my pillow each and every day of my stay. They also provide complimentary bottled water, but only for the first day. I called the front desk on my second day and they refused to send more. $250/night and you can't send up $1 worth of water? Pretty lame if you ask me.

The Revere also does not have a disposable laundry bag. Maybe I haven't stayed in enough of a variety of places, but I like to use the hotel disposable laundry bag for my dirty clothes to go into my suitcase. Not at Revere - their bag costs $10 if you want to take it home.

The breakfast at Rustic kitchen is just average at best. The buffet is $18 and does not included omelettes. You have hash browns, eggs, pancakes, fruit, tea, yogurt and cereal, but at a hotel in this price range, I expect omelettes and waffle iron as part of the deal. Think Hampton Inn vs. a high-end boutique hotel.  The OJ is fresh but you can do better at Panera Bread a block away.

The pool seems ok, but it's very old and musty. It reminds me of a fleabag motel pool vs. a nice hotel pool. The exercise room is a joke, too - a few treadmills and dumbbells, but hey, it's a hotel gym.

Overall, the Revere is nice and has high points. You can sleep without being disturbed and the upgrade was a nice touch. I would stay there again but I'm going to try a Starwood property nearby first before I go back.

This hotel "tries". It's a remodeled Radisson with old infrastructure. The elevators take 10plus minutes almost every day, it's ridiculously slow. Self parking and valet were spendy and slow and confusing at times. The beds were OK ... they used to be adjustable, but now they are just set and you cant mess with them, they tend to be very firm, but not bad. The rooms have a balcony, but the concrete railing is a bit low for my tastes, they should add a glass panel and increase the height by about a foot. The club is nice, the lobby is nice, the people are great and the location is very good. But bang for the buck, i would give this place 3 to 3.5 stars.

Our company had our annual kickoff meeting at the Revere and we were absolutely impressed. Their staff is incredible. They consistently go above and beyond for their guests. The "Skoah" products are high quality and you actually WANT to use them, unlike other hotel shampoos. Our event coordinator's name was Jack, I forget his last name, but I strongly recommend him and his team for all business services. We also stayed at the hotel and the amazing food, service, and spaces created a definite WOW experience. This is the place to hold your next corporate event, wedding, or just to have a weekend getaway. You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I stayed there for one night.  I loved our room; very clean and tastefully decorated. The location was also great.  We went to see Shear Madness which was just a short walk from the hotel. We had dinner on Newbury street.  We took a cab there because we had reservations, but walked back to the hotel. The only negative things about it is that the hotel charges for parking and that they charge $6 for the bottled water in the room. I would personally prefer to pay $50. extra bucks and have those things included.

I had a very bad experience trying to leave this place. We reserved a roof deck cabana and had a lovely afternoon enjoying cocktails and small bites, but when it was time to go, everything went bad.

We didn't see our server for over an hour because she was tied up splitting checks for a large party. It took 3 trips up to the hostess to finally get our bill printed, then another 20 to get our credit cards rung. This place is grossly understaffed, and they need to spend money on 4-5 more POS stations and maybe handheld ordering tablets for their servers to do their job properly (although no idea where servers would carry them in their bikini uniforms). On our way out, there were about 15 other people milling about the lone service computer trying to cash out as well, with at least one of them flipping out and asking to speak to management.

After an hour and twenty minutes just trying to pay, it took another 10 to get the elevator, because 2 of the 4 are out of service and there is no public stairwell.

The food was mediocre, with an extremely limited selection. I ordered 2 different mocktails, but couldn't drink either of them because the lime was overwhelming. They only have one ladies' room and one men's room for a roofdeck that holds 200.  

Cabana itself was clean, comfortable, and roomy, but there's no way I will be going back to relive this experience.

Great great customer service!!  This is an example of how good it is. The valets overheard that my friend couldnt get into a local club because of a dress code that had not been explained to us before we got there. One of the valets ( a young man named Yousef )  said wait give me 5 minutes and I will get you a collared shirt. This kid raced off and came back with his freshly dry cleaned shirt, and said, here you can have this! We were all blown away!!  My buddy took the shirt and gave him 100 bucks and we went to the club!  I will never forget that service The Revere Hotel and most of all Yousef !! Bravo!

Good hotel in a great location close to Boston Commons and there are a ton of places nearby to get something to eat.  Had a king size room and it was fairly large and pretty clean. Cab ride from the airport took about 15 min only (FYI - taxis tack on an extra $7.50 service charge from the airport).  When I got there to check in the offered me a free glass of champagne which I guess is a nice touch but I find this kind of stuff gimmicky.  Bed was comfy and no real complaints except my tv wouldn't turn on.  I called the desk and it took about an hour for them to send someone up to take a look at it.

We booked through Jetsetter (the travel site of Gilt Group) and could not have been happier.  The deal was great: the room was spacious (especially for Boston), the hotel was in a great location (walking distance to great areas for entertainment and food), the concierge was helpful (I lost my phone...they had it), and the amenities were superb (amazing beds, robes, bathroom, and overall decor). Basically, I felt like I was at a 5-star hotel for a 4-star price. What a find!

We stayed at the Revere a couple of weeks ago.  From the time of our arrival (champagne upon check-in) to leaving the hotel, everything was beautiful and everyone was courteous and friendly .  I would like to single out in particular a member of the staff at the concierge desk, Richard Pettiglio.  His knowledge and thorough approach helped us make our dinner reservations on time as well as all of the other plans that we had scheduled for the evening.  He wanted to make sure that we were comfortable whenever we needed directions or help of any kind.  He is truly a treasure to be found when staying at the Revere in Boston.

Cannot think of a single flaw to our stay.  Room - clean, amenities - generous, location in theater district - perfect, reservations and front desk personnel friendly and professional.  If the could only move the "T" closer to their door for our cold, windy stay I'd still be there!

My husband and I stayed here for one night to attend a show at the Wilbur Theater.  If you are seeing a show in the theater district, I would definitely recommend it.  The view from the 19th floor was amazing, and we actually had 2 balconies! The front desk staff were friendly and the champagne at check in is always a plus.  Only 2 negatives...there is not enough light in the bedroom part of the suite.  There is a lamp but it doesn't throw off quite enough light once its dark.  The other thing was that when we left we went to pay the valet and they said the credit card machine was frozen in the cold (the parking wasn't on the folio, they have you paty when you drive out).  A lot of people don't carry much cash, and $46 would have been easier to put on a debit card.  I would stay there again, however, and overall it was a great hotel and the 2 negatives were very easily able to be overlooked.

I was pleasantly surprised with this little gem.  Starting with the valet check in of my car, people were accommodating, pleasant and helpful.  The rooms are nice and clean.  I would recommend having the LED lights by the bed installed in the headboard and having regular lamps on the bedside tables.  The lighting in the room left me a little in the dark.  Ideal for a romantic getaway, not as much for a business traveler.  Check in was a pleasant experience complete with champagne.  I would say that having parking available at the hotel was nice but expensive ($46/night).  Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay downtown and be able to walk to many sites.  I stayed during a snowstorm but was still able to get around

Stayed here for my birthday weekend, nice visual appeal.  The rooms are super clean and very well thought out, my major complaint was that this used to be a Radisson that had Sleep Number beds, that was a big reason I picked this property.  Big problem was that they had sleep number beds that did not have the controller.  I slept on a bed with only half the required air needed for a good night sleep.

Where to start? How about with first impressions? They're so important.
- A complimentary glass of champagne at check-in in one of the coolest and most unique lobbies I've ever seen. Wow!
On to the accommodations...
- Fabulous towels and bed linens
- Loved the Skoa skin care products
- The rooms are beautifully appointed...sleek and modern but not sterile.
- Everyone on staff I encountered was gracious and genuinely warm.
The Revere recently went through a complete overhaul. If the current standards are maintained, I'll be a fan for life!

They must have updated.  We had a great stay, the staff was great.  They had great recommendations for food etc...

We don't have to park a car but seemed normal pricing for a downtown hotel.  It's centrally located in the heart of Boston.  5-10min trip in any direction gets you to something cool!

I highly recommend bc they don't rape you since its downtown.

One of the best hotels I've stayed at in USA. Clean, comfortable rooms and wonderful staff. They were very accommodating with regards to an allergy I have, something US hotels are slow to understand. The Revere Hotel is walking distance to several Boston neighbourhoods and the green and orange line Ts are a block or two away. If I had one piece of feedback it would be to tone down the scent in the lobby as it overwhelms. Would certainly recommend to friends and family; loved it.

Thankfully, we got a great deal on the room by going to Priceline (not the Name Your Own Price, just the regular deals section) several weeks ahead of our actual trip - we spent each day marvelling at how downtown Boston hotel prices just kept climbing right up to the day we left.  We read about some of the air conditioning woes and got a bit worried since we were there during a pretty awful heatwave, but we had that baby cranked and it worked like a charm (we were on the 16th floor, not sure if that makes a difference).

The service was excellent for the most part, although consistency does seem to still be an issue (we weren't offered the champagne that others seemed to have gotten, and we only got complimentary water one or two nights of our weeklong stay).  Maybe because we religiously tip for things we should, including maid service, we found we got a few perks, a free Best of Boston mag one day, extra towels another.  Maid service was great, concierge was helpful (able to supply maps and directions readily), and porter service was great, too.

The pool was surprisingly nice - not overly busy, plenty of easy-access towels, and with a very nice adjoining outdoor rooftop sunning area replete with deck chairs, tables and umbrellas to shield you from the sun.

Business Centre was easy to access (we had to go in and print some whale watching tickets), and although we didn't partake, the Emerald Lounge club/bar seemed like it was always hopping.

Because of our tight restaurant schedule, we didn't get around to trying the Room Service menu, but it looked pretty standard.

Decor was nice, and the bathroom amenities were what you'd expect from a recently-renovated hotel (boutique soaps/shampoos, those great shower curtain bars that curve outward to give you more space while you shower, etc.

No major problems.  One thing I wished they had more of were electrical outlets - if you're going through the trouble of redesigning your rooms, I'd have liked to have seen outlets on either side of each bed - we had a billion gadgets to charge and one of us uses a CPAP to sleep at night.  To be fair, they had several outlets, just not laid out evenly throughout the room.

Free coffee was nice, TV was fine (we relaxed each night with some Olympics recaps) and there was a safe in the room.

The only thing we really would have liked to have seen is a mini-fridge.  But then, being foodies, maybe that's just us?

I stayed here 3 nights in Sept. 2013.  Very nice hotel in great location.  Front desk service was very friendly  - greeted with complimentary glass of champagne at check in which was a nice touch.  Valet service, concierge and housekeeping also very friendly - the GM is doing a very good job in the customer service dept.

Decor and quality of finishes and furnishings exceeded my expectations - I'd call it warm modern luxury.    Rooms seemed reasonably well insulated from sound - I'm a light sleeper and didn't have any issues, other than hearing the occasional toilet flush because of the low flow/high pressure toilets I'm guessing they installed (ah, the joys of going Green).   In general, I'd say that the quality of both design and build was one full step up from a W Hotel, and that's coming from a pretty loyal SPG member.

I don't know if this hotel allows pets, but I did not see or hear any (which was important to me, as I'm not a pet person when it comes to hotels).

Only  issue that I noticed, which is relatively minor, is that elevator rides took longer than I would have liked.  Short waits for the elevator to arrive were not unusual, nor were lots of stops both up and down -- due largely to the lack of a separate service elevator which I would recommend they consider if at all possible.  

I was there on slower days, so didn't partake in the rooftop bar but it looked like a fun venue on nice evenings.  I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

I had the most wonderful weekend, dinner, BSO, MFA. the only complaint was staying at the Revere Hotel I recommend that when booking you make sure your room doesn't have sleep number beds. Luckily our room had 2 of these beds so we were able to sleep on the one that was less broken... Make sure you use your do not disturb sign check out is at 11 but between 9-11 house keeping kept trying to come in. And triple check your room if you happen to leave anything behind don't expect to get it back, compensated or even empathy. Next time I don't think we'll be staying here with so many more options in the area.

Great experience!

They accepted a large package on my behalf  before my arrival no problem at all.
I was able to check in 2 hrs early.
Super clean in the room.
A selection of shampoo/conditioners/soaps to use.
Slippers and a pillow menu.
The concierge was totally helpful with sight seeing recommendations.
All the staff were super nice.
Walking distance to almost everything I wanted.
They were happy to check my luggage for several hours between the time I checked out and left for the airport.
I missed seeing the rooftop lounge as it was closed for the season, though it was only the end of September. Next time!

I will totally stay here again the next time I'm in Boston.

Three of us came out from California to shop Newbury street in Boston. We had a room with two queens for Friday through Monday. The location is what the place was all about for us and oh, a pool? I know! Right? Someone told us there are a low single digit number of pools in all Boston. One night we had the pool to ourselves and just filled the place with our music. We left playing our tunes and maracas as five ladies from like Norway showed up and looked at us like we were from another planet so timing is everything. The attached restaurant was ok. Joe at the bell stand is the man to answer your what's happening questions. Towels and amenities were great. There was like zero information layed out in throom so ask about everything. Who knew one of the beds was a sleep number bed? Joe's on Newbury is the place to eat. But the Hotels location is great for walking around. If it just had not been life or death cold at night...I mean really. Why does anyone live east of the rockies? Oh and if you lean to being an ascetic you are gonna be all about the lobby. Go, you will be stoked.

Beautifully satisfactory

Pros:
-Elegant yet modern design
-Glass of Champagne at check-in
-Awesome skincare products by skoah
-Good water pressure
-Great in-room air conditioning
-Comfortable bed
-Heated indoor pool
-Small fitness center
-Free WiFi
-Most surprisingly, the front desk was able to provide me with a MacBook charger

Cons:
-One elevator may have been out of order, since it was a 7 minute ordeal to get downstairs during peak hours
-Fitness center free weights were moved into the heated swimming pool area making for an uncomfortable work out
-Terrace was a stark concrete rectangle sans seating area or small table
-No continental breakfast included

A pleasant stay overall but if you're paying full price you may be able to do better elsewhere.

The Pool Deck: Finally a rooftop pool where I can relax and enjoy the views of Boston. I bought a gilt coupon which gave me access to towels, the pool, a water bottle, and a cocktail of my choice. Obviously I ordered a pimms cup. I will be back soon to tan! A great escape from the busy city.

While the ambience of this establishment is simply gorgeous and inviting the service was so very bad I can't see myself ever going to the rooftop lounge again.  I went to the Rooftop lounge on a Thursday after work for drinks and appetizer with a group of  6   The service was AWFUL.  Both the drink and menu  selections were very limited.  With so little to chose from you would think that there wouldn't be a problem with our orders,  NOT! First, when the waitress came to our sofa to take our drink order only 2 in our party had arrived and when she took my order I was informed she had to hold both my license and my credit card to run my individual tab.  As other members of my group arrived this practice was not consistent within the group. I ordered a simple Malibu and coke (because that was pretty much all that they had that I drink) it took 30 minutes for me to get my drink.  About another 30 minutes later when the waitress came back to see if we needed anything I ordered a simple club sandwich and requested no bacon or cheese another 30 minutes later my food was delivered with both items I asked to eliminate from the sandwich.  Another food and drink order was placed by members of the group and again it took no less than 30 minutes for the order to arrive and it was the completely wrong drink order. Now remember we all had separate tabs, so and the end of the evening when we go to check out why did several members of the group get bills for the same exact items even though it wasn't what  they ordered. We're all given our bills and mind you when we left it was dark outside and this is an outside venue, there was no light so it was extremely difficult to even read the bill.  I had to use the lighted bar area to see my bill.  The wait staff should have small flashlights or some better lighting.   When I paid my bill I paid cash, never signing the receipt authorizing my card to be charged and verifying this information with the manager on duty I was assured my card wasn't swiped and what do I find on my bank statement this morning????? A charge for the Emerald lounge for my bill for which I paid cash!  So now I have to go through the process of disputing the charge or I pay double for the worst dining experience.

Not sure what any negative reviews were about, because we had a wonderful experience!!  Everyone was friendly and helpful, the lobby smelled AMAZING and had beautiful and modern decor.  The rooms were fun with great amenities!  Within walking distance to downtown crossing, and a little longer walk to Fenway, but pretty the whole way.  I would absolutely stay here again...those with the negative reviews may be the ones that are hard to please no matter what!

Not family-friendly at all. We went to check out the rooftop pool deck and the guy before the entrance of the pool let my family with 2 kids in the pool, then once we stepped out to the roof deck, we got stopped and said we can't be out there with kids, then stated we can't even be in the pool area. A family staying at the hotel couldn't even get acces to the gorgeous rooftop because they have kids after 4pm? That's quite ridiculous. They were very rude and unclear.

I stayed here for 2 nights with a sweet deal from living social.
I was impressed that, even though we had a discount, the room was very nice and on a middle floor. The room was exceptionally clean and quiet, and the king bed was super comfy.
The location is really great - a block from the commons and close to Starbucks, Panera, and many restaurants, including a very good Indian restaurant, across the street.

I had a light dinner at their restaurant, the Rustic Kitchen, and the salad I ordered was delicious.

The only complaint I have about Boston is that the parking is expensive and not convenient.

All in all a great stay

Stayed here for a Girls Weekend with two friends in a double queen room that I found on Priceline.com for a spectacular rate!  Arrived and was given the choice of self-park or valet, chose self-park as I felt I was capable of parking and handling my luggage myself.  I do love that there is a parking garage right on site so that you have that option!  Entered the lobby and was immediately struck with such a wonderful smell!  I can see how others who have commented about the smell could find it a little assaulting but I enjoyed it.  When my friends and I inquired about the smell the manager told us it was white tea and thyme and that Bath and Body Works offers a similar smell if we wanted to bring the smell into our own homes.  

When checking in, the free champagne offered was certainly a perk!  The young bellman, Phil, who assisted me and my friends with our luggage was very pleasant and remembered us throughout our staying, asking us how our evenings were, etc.  

The room was spacious enough for us - some of the most comfortable beds we've slept in.  I also enjoyed that there is a pillow menu to choose from - did not utilize, but like the option.  The soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner options were spectacular and I loved that they were in large dispensers hanging by the sink or in the shower - how economical and green of the hotel!  The fitness center was also very nice and even provided headphones if you'd forgotten them.

On our second night we ate at the Rustic Kitchen in the hotel and were very pleased with both the service and the food.  

The hotel was a perfect distance to both the theatre district and Newbury Street which were the two reasons we were in Boston.

Our only complaint was that room service took close to an hour one morning for just coffee, berries and yogurt.  After calling a few times to inquire about our order, we were told that it would be comped.  It appeared on our bill, but the lady at reception removed it from our bill after we informed her of the situation.

Overall..great hotel and would definitely stay here again!

Had a quick stay at the Revere Hotel near Boston Common. Very cool rooms. Great Value. Quiet and close to shopping and restaurants. Not my favorite location in Boston but ok for short trips.The good is the service is very good and they aim to please at every turn. The rooms are modern and comfortable and if you upgrade for a few dollars more you get a pretty large room like a small apartment. Nice views too from the higher floors and cool pool deck and rooftop bar at the top. The bad is the elevators are slow and at times when the rooftop bar is open the crowds make it hard to even get an elevator. Other than that I would totally stay at the Revere again. PS - Its Close to Hertz rent a car drop off too as a tip.

We stayed in this hotel as 2 couples. It is located 15-20 min walking distance from bus terminal. We entered hotel, beautiful lobby and clean smell. Joe on the registration welcomed us very warm and kind, he gave a brief explanation about Boston and landmarks  which was very helpful since it was our first trip to Boston.
Room was clean and pleasant with nice view..Wi-fi was kind of slow.
Jenna on reception made our check out, she was amazing as well. Super kind and helpful, she kept our bags at hotel even we checked-out to make our last day less painfull for enjoying Boston without carrying our bags:)
I personally highly recommended this hotel to my friends already.
Again thank you  for your great hospitality, I'll definetely stay here again on my next Boston trip.

Overall great experience; I do not travel often and use price line for all my trips to Orlando. So staying in a fancy named hotel in the Back Bay fancy area of Boston was exciting and smart.
      The hotel area is great within walking distance to great restaurants, bars and the "T". There's Smith and Wollensky; Grill 23; dunkin donuts for coffee; panera; and bunch of other yummy chains right across the street.
Besides that check in and the complimentary champagne (which I asked for bc of my yelpers) was easy breezy.
  The hotel rooms were very nice with a "pillow menu" and sleep number beds; my only criticism was the sleep number beds never properly worked. They were comfortable and may have been more comfortable if the numbers worked the way I wanted. but I sleep in a huge king size pillow top normally and am very picky...moving on the decor was modern and sleek and the toiletries were provided; they also had bath robes and slippers.
     The staff was extremely helpful although I rarely use amenities or ask for anything; the two times I did in 4 days they were prompt. Something very special I noticed was a "smell" or "freshener" every time you walked into the lobby. Finally I asked the front desk what is the amazing smell every time I walk in; is it the floor cleaner? a freshener? I couldn't place it although it was so familiar to me (for all my miamians it was similar to baby mistolin) Whoever the marketing brainac it was that came up with a special craft frangance through the vents so every time you smell it; its familiar to you and you remember boston...kudos and cheers to you, your a smartypants!!
    The last night we decided to eat in the Rustic Kitchen downstairs in the lobby.
Pasta was extremely good, it was very pricey reminded me of sobe. They also clearly have a problem with staffing appropriately. I will review rustic separately.
        Funny I was so worried about the elevator and we never ever had a problem we were on the 20th floor then all of a sudden morning of our flight an elevator went down (not their fault) and it was 15 minutes before we got downstairs to checkout...I loved Boston it was a great city!

This review is for Rooftop @ Revere and only minorly for the hotel itself.

The hotel lobby is gorgeous, although confusingly laid out. Several of my friends had problems figuring out how to access the roof deck, and then were concerned when they saw an outdated sign in the elevator bank announcing that the roof deck was closed for inclement weather when it was in fact not. The elevators seem to be painfully slow; we always had to wait five to six minutes for an elevator even though there are four in the building.

Upon entering the roof deck, guests are carded before entering the pool area, and are given a wristband if they are 21+ and plan on drinking. You then walk through the pool area to reach the roof deck, where you are greeted by one of the extremely friendly employees at the check-in area. There's a fee for entrance for non-hotel guests, unless you have rented a cabana. When renting a cabana you have to meet a certain guarantee for food and beverage purchases (which was very, very easy to do).

The cabanas are great! There is a couch that is probably twice the depth of a typical couch and allows a ton of space for quite a few people to sit and chat or lounge about. There are also two cushioned stools, a probably too small coffee table, and carpeting beneath the couch/table, which allows for people floor space to sit on if they choose. Directly outside the cabana, you also get four chaise lounges and two small tables next to those. There is plenty of space for  a large group (we had 9) to spread out, mingle, relax, sit in the sun, whatever.

The music piped into the cabanas and coming from the speakers is what you'd expect. Fun, nothing groundbreaking, and not too obtrusive. The view is pretty good - it's unfortunate that there's construction happening directly across from the hotel, but the other three sides have a nice view of the city. The rest of the roof deck is set up nicely; there's a bar area for people to hang around and sit at the bar, there are plenty of seating variations scattered around the roof, and there's a decent amount of walking space to get from one end to the other.

The menu is spare, but really good. There are about half a dozen drinks that can be purchased in pitchers, a small selection of food that our vegetarian and carnivorous friends enjoyed, and a decent selection of wine and beer. Everything arrived pretty quickly, we had zero complaints about the food or the drinks, and even though the prices were slightly higher than I would've liked, I didn't mind enough to stop ordering any of it!

Service is nearly 5 stars, but needs to work out a few kinks first. We had so many friendly, helpful staff members checking in on us periodically. They coordinated it very well and all of our orders arrived promptly. Our main server, Alexandra, was helpful in speaking to other guests on our behalf when we needed them to vacate our chaise lounges that we had let them borrow for an hour. She was friendly and efficient, and very helpful in going through the menu and making suggestions for our gluten-free friend. The only time the service failed us was in waiting for our check. The entire process took about 45 minutes from asking for the check to finally being brought the check to having our cards charged. This process obviously needs some help, most likely just with adding a way for guests to swipe their own cards like one of my neighborhood restaurants does or allowing the servers to walk around with a smartphone with a card reader.

My only other quibble is that there is only one ladies room and one men's room and that is not nearly enough. There are more restrooms on the sixth floor, but that is kind of a pain to have to deal with.

We had a nice stay, the hotel is updated and the room is comfortable. It also is within walking distance of Boston common and many of the historic sites in Boston (probably a good 15-20 min walk to old north church on the north end). There also are some great restaurants in the area, and the concierge was very helpful in recommending a few places. They also have several luxury amenities like sleep number beds, modern furnishings, the wifi was great in the room, and champagne at check-in.

The only downside to this hotel, and it is something that may prevent me from staying here if/when we visit Boston again, is that the walls are paper thin. We could hear every toilet flush, shower head coming on, and conversations from the room adjoining ours. Not a problem during the day, but when a group of drunk girls come back at 2am giggling and chatting loudly, it's rather annoying to have your sleep disturbed.

Very very narrow room but it's just enough space for two people. Two twins and two sets of drawers on opposite ends of the room. Clean rooms and towels everyday. Loved the convenience of the water bottles and water dispenser. Two complaints though 1) the keys didn't work so well 2) one night, my friend and I were sitting in the room when we heard our door being opened and a lady opened the door only to be greeted by two sets of wide eyes staring at her. Revere, please remember not to give an occupied room to your guests... I felt more sorry for the lady, she was so apologetic and of course surprised.

Overall though, friendly staff and I absolutely loved the convenient location.

W style with friendlier staff.  The interior made me feel like a chic eurohotel because of the thoughtful and unique design.  Both the conceirge and desk staff went out of their way to help me with little things like holding my bag a few hours and giving me directions to nearby eateries.  This was relaxed, attentive service.

Room was a good size with a workable desk. The beds, though comfy, weren't as soft as I'd like and the pillow situation was ridiculous.  

Down side, no fridge in room and you have to leave the hotel and cross a walkway to get to their breakfast room and dining. (not a big deal but it gets cold)

All in all, this is my new hang when I visit Boston!

PS Want a hearty, affordable breakfast.  Ask the staff to point to towards Charles Street, at straight shot, to Paramount for the best omelettes in town!

The Revere hotel - the rooms, the staff, the ambiance - is all great. This review is for their "roof top pool." I've used quotations for that because the pool is INDOORS. There is no sun bathing next to - or in the pool. The Revere must have hired a great photographer to capture images of lounge chairs that lead visitors to believe that there is a pool hidden in the foreground. But there isn't. As a Boston resident - getting pool side in the summer can be an expensive undertaking. When you pay $30 to sit by a pool - you shouldn't be swindled into believing that there is an actual outdoor pool. The Revere consciously misrepresents what it has to offer. To my fellow Bostonian's in search of pool side drinks and sun bathing - go to the Colonnade hotel. You might pay a few more dollars - but there's no BS - and it's worth it. As a side note - last year when I came to the "roof top" pool at the Revere, a staff member dropped a tray full of glasses into the indoor pool. It was 90 degrees and miserably hot on the patio and no one was getting in that pool for the remainder of the weekend. I had to call three times to get my money refunded. Seriously Revere - who serves drinks in actual glass next to any pool - inside or out? Yikes.

Best location-you can walk to everything!  Really nice rooms, very clean, comfy bedding, sound proof walls. Excellent service.  When we arrived to check in there were about 5 people ahead of us so we had to wait to check in.  A staff person brought us champagne to drink as we waited. We didn't mind the wait as much after that.! I was slightly disappointed in the pool- it was just average for such a top- notch hotel.

Check-in: I checked in to the Revere Hotel and was welcomed with champagne. Wow - this doesn't usually happen when I check in to hotels. Though I'm not usually a big spender, I tend to stay at some nice places during business trips and I was impressed with this touch during check in. It doesn't take much to pour a glass of champagne for incoming guests but sure does make a nice impression.

Gym: 24 hour gym is an awesome offering. I know not all hotels are set up for this; Revere is and just the idea is amazing. I came to the gym on a Wednesday morning around 5:45 and only encountered 2 other people.

Good number of treadmills (3 or 4), stair steppers and elliptical machines. Free weights, a few machines and a foam roller. Overall, 4 stars out of 5 on the gym front (i.e. it was really nice - above average - though not the *nicest* I've seen for this price).

[Room]
Bathroom: I am always impressed when there is actual thought into the design of where the shampoo and conditioner is placed. Is it: placed on an inconvenience, hard to reach place: say, near the sink, which you groan when you remember that while sopping wet and already in the shower? The Revere has dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and body wash (2 types) in the shower. Dispensers are (1) conveniently placed (2) more eco friendly than the small bottles most hotels have. Another star for you on this angle.

Amenities in room: ironing board, JBL sound system, nice sized TV, comfortable bed and dark curtains - the amenities here were pretty good. I was disappointed not to have an in-room fridge (#firstworldproblem, I know) - which is the main reason I'm giving this place 4 stars, not 5 - but all of the other amenities were nice.

View: great view overlooking the city! I was on the 20th floor, at a room near the elevator. View was spectacular, though the fact I was near the elevator meant more noise that I would have liked.

Bed: comfortable - I slept really well both nights.

4 stars for a pretty excellent stay, though a few things could be perfected in order to make this a 5 star stay.

Complimentary champagne glass on check in. Great soaps in bathroom. Contemporary decor. Elevators are slow and Wi Fi signal was weak all 3-nights (front desk said it was due to too many users?). Great roof top view and yummy pita appetizer. Walking distance to Boston Common parks, Newbury St shopping and walk along the Charles River. Enjoyed the hotel.

I was visiting Boston over the memorial day weekend and the location was perfect! The hotel was so close to all the shopping, Boston Common, Freedom trail, north end, Copley square, Newbury, and if you are a walker like me, you can even go for a long (2 miles) walk to the Fenway park to catch a sox game.

The fitness center is accessible 24 hours (fantastic!) and is more than just a closet with two broken treadmill - it actually has weights, several different cardio machines, etc. I didn't get to use the pool but the roof top bar/patio area by the pool is nice.

The room was decent sized and clean. The staff was friendly.

Tips: if you have a car, consider parking it in the underground public garage in Boston Common, it's really close and much cheaper. Also, the complimentary champagne tasted terrible - but i still appreciated the gesture.

p.s. I got a great deal on this hotel via Priceline's Name Your Own Price. Would I still give it five stars had I paid full price for the hotel? Maybe. Maybe not (probably not). But for the price I paid, it was definitely a five star experience.

This is my go to hotel when staying in Boston in the summer months as they have a great roof top deck. I phoned the morning that we were arriving about an early check-in, I was told they would try to accommodate us. Well they did! Caroline checked us in and couldn't have been nicer. I have stayed here four times and enjoyed every stay. Their rooftop deck has a section that is for guest only as they allow non-staying guest to pay $30.00 to hang out for the day. The rooms are always clean and nicely decorated. The beds are super comfortable.  When I phoned to ask to have the slider unlocked, maintenance was at the room within five min.  When I called the front desk to have  a few bottles (they offer bottled water 9oz.free of charge) they sent someone right up with it. The staff here is extremely friendly and helpful. Staying at the Revere Hotel is always a pleasant experience.

Love this place!  It's very funky in a European sort of way. What makes it incredible, though, is the staff.  EVERY person I encountered was amazing. From the guys parking the car to the director of event services, they all were friendly, helpful and genuinely nice. The concierges were full of great advice and gave us some awesome recommendations.

The hotel is about a block away from the Public Garden and there are tons of great dining options close-by. Best of all, Dunkin Donuts is just a block away.

I hope I get a chance to visit again!

oh my god the roofdeck bar is epically bad. service is terrible, drinks are consistently wrong and laughably bad. we all ordered vodka sodas (maybe the easiest drink you can make) and they came out with vodka sprites (which you could barely taste the alcohol and we were all convinced that it wasn't even in it). it's such a shame because it has so much potential with an amazing view and lounge area. yikes this place sucks.

Stayed here for two nights while in boston in Jan 2014

The hotel is clean, with big comfy rooms and clean bathroom
We had a great view of the city from the 22 second floor

The private balcony is a nice to allow you even better views of the city.

Close to the commons, but otherwise not much seemed to be happening in the area.

Never used the lounge part of the hotel as the dress code was not what we were prepared for (wanted like ladys in high heels etc, i had packed for lots of walking in the city to explore Boston, never thought about bringing a whole bunch of fancy pants clothes)

The breakfast at the hotel resturant was decent but a bit over priced for eggs and toast.

I did not like the wait for a room. Check-in time was delayed and I was told there wasn't a room ready for me. I went exploring around Boston, drank a few beers at the Cheers bar, returned to the hotel and after a 30 minute wait the front desk said sorry there still isn't one available. After getting irritable, they "found one".  Also, the couple next to us got upgraded to a suite since their king room wasn't ready, we did not.

Another complaint I have is the rooftop bar they claim to have wasn't open. You could go out on the patio but the bar wasn't open and this was a Saturday night.

They also do not cool the hallways in the hotel so similar to walking from  your cool room into a sauna. They offer a complimentary shoe shine service, so they claim. But when we put a pair out two nights in a row and they were never picked up; I assume this service is cancelled.

Door key readers are old or out of commission. I had to go back down to the lobby to get a new key four times! I got the old, don't keep it next to your cell phone speech, but this wasn't the issue. I kept that key card  more protected than my most prized possessions and it still wouldn't work.

Overall, for the money, stay somewhere else that will treat you with respect and courtesy. Remember you are on vacation and the hotel is a small part of your stay but an important one. This particular hotel was the only problems we encountered during our Boston stay.

I would typically give this hotel 4.5 stars but I'm hoping that by rounding up I can compensate for the negative reviews that should not count because they were while the hotel was under construction.

Let me start this hotel by screaming loud and clear, THIS HOTEL IS NO LONGER UNDERGOING CONSTRUCTION.

AND, the construction that they must have been doing that caused others to whine and complain was worth it. Because it's a great hotel. In a great location. Walking distance to most of the theaters, a lot of the popular bars and hot spots around Boston, Chinatown, and more.

Not only was the room nice, comfortable, spacious (with its own balcony!) and full of amenities such as free wifi, a nice bathrobe and spa products, but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a great welcome... complete with a champagne toast to celebrate our arrival! How can you beat that?

We also got the luxury of being able to attend the soft opening of the Emerald Lounge during our stay, which is opening to the public in the next few weeks. I highly recommend this place. Don't get me wrong, the drinks aren't cheap... but they're creative and delicious. Get the Blueberry Vo-jito. You will NOT be disappointed. This might be the best drink I have ever had. Oh, and make sure you go to the bathroom... and then keep walking to discover the hidden bar around the maze of hallways where the bathrooms are! It's super cute and fun. We had a great time at this bar.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. We got lucky enough to end up here through a Hotwire booking so we saved some money, but I think on a nice day with the rooftop pool open and a balcony on your room, the regular price would probably be worth it for this place.

Oh, and don't pay $40 to park there. Do your research and you can find other garages a block away that are cheaper.

This is a reasonably-priced hotel in a great location.  The decor is modern but a bit stark to suit me.  There is a heart-stopping, pounding pounding nightclub on the mezzanine.  Don't get a low floor, seriously.

The staff is efficient but the layout on the main floor is rather odd, causing guests to have little interaction with the staff.  

The two restaurants definitely do not match the hotel.  One is called "Rustic Kitchen", the other I forget but it seemed too casual for the sophistication of the hotel.

The room was very nice, quite large, and the decor was modern but comfy.

I attended an event at the Revere that allowed me to see most of their function rooms. I remember when this was a tired and dated Raddisson. Well, any and all Raddisson that had existed is no more... and this is a good thing. There are multiple function rooms, a beautiful theater and a multifunction black box that has endless possibilities.  I haven't seen a price list just yet, but I'm going to consider using this space for some upcoming events. At the event I attended,  they had passed hors d vours - lobster sliders (yummy), beef sliders (cooked perfectly), spring rolls (do not pass on the wasabi dipping sauce- trust me on this), dumplings and sesame chicken swekers. I didn't eat the last two, but other enjoyed them. At the buffet were turkey salad and ham salad mini toasts, veggies and hummus in shot glasses, and an array of desserts.  The displays were beautiful and well crafted. I'll be back for more events in April and I'll update at that time. I hear the overnight rooms are spectacular too. I need to get me a tour soon!

Insanely great customer service!
So I made my reservations on their website!  Their website had the best deals, compared to the other deal websites, so make sure if you are finding deals for this place check their website as well..
We checked in and were served 2 chilled glasses of champagne in our hands!  We got a junior suite - except that it only had 1 king bed, no other beds!  I brought this to the attention of the front desk Luz Carmona, who was very instrumental, working with the Front desk manager, Charlotte Ahearne resolved this problem within minutes.. and were able to make sure that both my kids had the most comfortable nights' sleep!
Fabulous find for us, in the heart of Boston and minutes from everything.
Highly recommend it!

Have to say I am disappointed. While this is certainly a nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff it is not a four star hotel in its execution. The hallways and our top floor "premier" room were not very clean at all. From the visible dirt on the carpets in our room and the left over room service trays in the hall ( that were there when we checked in and were not gone till some time round dinner, the dirty carpet in the room(maybe they need a new vacuum??) to the large puddle and hairs on the bathroom floor there was a general feeling that things were just not up the the level they should be for a $350 (plus $40 for self parking) they are charging. When compared to say a Four Seasons there really is no comparison, it's just a pricy hotel with a good location. Did I mention I was disappointed??

Swanky to those of us who would not stay in 5 star hotels.  Probably not the nicest if you are used to the Four Seasons.  

I loved the Revere.  It sure beat the abysmal reviews of Park Place, and was a great option for a Back Bay hotel under $170 a night.  Champagne upon checkin. Front desk staff, a freakin delight.  The concierge, super helpful.  Housekeeping provided a clean room when we got there and then left us alone for 4 days as requested.  Bellhop always eager to grab me a cab off the street.  

Indoor pool about halfway up the hotel, with free weights off to the side, and a small room with some treadmills.  Perfect for what I needed.

Bed soft, SOOOOOO Soft.  Pillow menu offered the chance to get exactly what you needed for your comfort.  PLUSHHHHHH blanket on the bed, Soooooo Soft.  Robe and slippies in the room, LOLZ.  Room service available till 11pm, and didnt cost an arm and a leg.  

So happy with my stay.  Considering I could have been at a MUCH WORSE establishment, congrats Revere!

I reserved a cabana on the roofdeck along with a hotel room for a friend's birthday. Not only was the roofdeck manager rude from the very beginning but continued to harass us throughout the afternoon. Our time came to an end when Tyrese the manager on the roofdeck accused one of the people in our party of sneaking in alcohol. He then demanded to search all of the purses, he proceeded to search each bag without consent and while he was being told to stop. Of course he didn't find anything through his illegal search because why would someone pay hundreds of dollars in drinks to sneak in alcohol? Eventually another manager even admitted that there was no foreign alcohol present.

Not only was this the most egregious display of bad customer service I have ever seen but it actually rose to level of criminal misconduct. After talking to another manager we were allowed to stay until our reservation ran up but did not receive so much as an apology for the gross misconduct of hotel staff. On our way out another employee(Id checker) even threatened to have our party removed from the hotel.

My review is for the Rooftop Lounge only. It's free entry but closes at 10:30pm. You do have to walk by the indoor pool area which was awkward having little kids in the pool seeing you in short skirt. If you're wearing heels, be careful of the pool water.

The lounge itself was very nice but I'm not sure how the numerous monkey statue fits in. The seats, cabanas, 2 stocked bars, fire pit was great. However, the lighting was very poor and there's only stereo system which wasn't loud at all...I guess they didn't want neighbors to complain. The view could be better, music could be louder, and closing time would be like a regular club. The funniest part was the "Debbie Downer" security guard checking IDs.

US: Why does this place end so early?

Security: (Mellow voice) Because we want you out of here before you get drunk.

Us: Why is it so quiet? We can't hear any music?

Security: (Mellow voice) That's because the hallway is sound proof and I don't want to hear drunk people out here

Umm...thanks for your enthusiasm. Now I'm totally sober! LOL

Great location, walking distance to lots of restaurants and shopping places.

The lobby is very nice and modern but a little bit more like a cold museum than an inviting lobby to sit and lounge a bit while waiting for checking in or out.

The cons:
-slow elevators that seem to have a smell to it
-low water pressure, so it takes longer to shower if you want to feel clean
-bell hops are hustlers, trying to make extra money (a cab ride to the airport is less than $30, the bell hops try to hail down one of their cabbies that charge $80 so they can split the money)
-not too attentive to which guest bag they give you, regardless of your ticket

The pros:
-great location, walking distance to lots of things
-nice clean rooms
-nice bed (although our sleep number did not work)
-great concierge service
-fun night club on the mezzanine

To call this a rooftop pool is to insult rooftop pools everywhere.  Yes, I get that not everywhere can be The Standard in LA, but still.

You take the elevator to a weirdly long and windy hallway until you reach an enclosed pool that looks like it belongs at a Holiday Inn.  From there, you head to a roof deck with somewhat underwhelming views.  Drinks were fine, though we had to wait forever for them, as they only had one of the bars open on a Saturday night.  The decor was weirdish, there's only one bathroom stall for each gender...there's just so much that could have been good about this place and just wasn't.

Great location - close to Boston Common. Clean hotel. Spacious room. Wifi was "included", but it did not work most of the time. They clearly have not invested in sufficient equipment necessary to serve the number of guests at the hotel. If not for having such lame wifi, they would get a 4+ stars.

I'm with a group that stayed at the Hotel, this stay has been planned for months.  When we arrived their system went down and we couldn't get into our rooms until almost 6 pm.  The very next morning our group (99 pp) was supposed to have breakfast between 7 am - 8:45 am. That should have been plenty of time, but it was late. I left to Starbucks, not my favorite place, because it was impossible to get everyone seated and feed within 15min.  Beautiful room, clean , but service was lacking.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Revere Hotel Boston Common this past Tuesday night...and all I have to say is wow. We were in town to see Wicked at the Opera House and figured we'd make a night of it. We had a really good time. Tried to make it a point of checking out everything (with the exception of the Emerald Lounge as it was closed by the time we got back). We took a quick peek though and it looked really nice. The hotel is close to everything, which makes walking easy and cab fare cheap.

The valet was super nice and took care of everything for us. It was a little busy at check-in when we arrived, but we just assumed that was a good thing. Also, the lobby was so stunning and modern we didn't mind hanging out for a bit. When we finally got to the front desk we were offered champagne and that was a fun little treat, but were a little disappointed to find out they didn't have a room for us (we were right on time for check-in).

However, we took this as the perfect opportunity to check out the roof top pool and lounge. It was awesome. The bartender and wait staff lacked a little personality, but the space more than made up for it. We enjoyed the sun and a couple cocktails. It was a great way to kill the 30 minutes we had to wait for our room...but we were also given another glass of champagne when we really checked in, after all of this we were feeling pretty happy.

Our room was amazing, I thought it was quite spacious and loved the design. The hardwood floor in the entrance was nice. It was hard not to notice the smell in the hallway that another reviewer had mentioned, but it seemed like it was a work in progress. Little things stuck out though; like a pretty big tear in our shower liner and the baseboard in the room coming apart from the floor. Didn't really affect us, but for such a nice hotel little things like that seem to stand out. Our bed was super comfortable, slept like a baby. We also LOVED having a balcony, not a lot of those in Boston.

We had dinner at Rustic Kitchen and Bar and certainly were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, a bit pricey, but you couldn't beat the portion sizes. The atmosphere was warm and fun, loved the lights that were designed to look like various garden veggies, made it a bit whimsical. The service was good, not out of this world, but nothing we could complain about either. We had drinks, appetizers, entrées, and post dinner coffee...it was the perfect start to our evening. Only wish we had saved room for dessert.

Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay...the only reason for the 4 out of 5 is for the few negative things I mentioned above. However we certainly plan on returning and would highly recommend the Revere Hotel Boston Common to anyone.

P.s. We kept running into one of the cleaning women in the hall way while we were there. She was so friendly and nice, always a smile and a hello. I never caught her name, but wanted to give a shout out to her :-)

Check-in process:

Easy. The front desk receptionist was genuinely friendly and answered my questions. He had me checked in and ready to go in 5 minutes.

Lobby:

Cold and modern. Nowhere to really sit or enjoy. No televisions.

Elevators:

Sloooooooooooowwwwwwwww. Unbelievably slow. There are 4 elevators for 24 floors. The mornings are terrible.

Hallways:

Smell like vomit. No idea why or how this smell permeated throughout my entire one week stay. Maybe the security guards are throwing up in the hallways instead of walking and picking up the room service orders or shoes? Maybe an eating disorder?

Rooms:

Trendy. Needs some updating. The wallpaper is peeling. The sliding glass doors are in bad shape and the balcony railing is dangerously low. I'd be pretty worried about liability for this if I ran this hotel.

The bed is comfy. They have a "Pillow Menu," which was nice. They offer a side sleeper, hypoallergenic, and back sleeper. The side sleeper is a giant body pillow, which was pretty nice. I called the front desk and housekeeping brought it up right away.

The TV didn't carry NBC for an unknown reason. It had HBO, MTV, bravo, etc...but no regular NBC.

Closets were spacious and there were plenty of drawers to store things.

The bathroom wasn't laid out properly. It was really small and uncomfortable. They don't give you toiletries in a traditional sense. They have pumps of different things...soap, lotion...shampoo and conditioner. They have sulfate-free products, which is nice.

The bathtub was really high and I constantly hit my shins and foot while getting into and out of the tub.

The showerhead had low pressure. It's one of those rainfall showerheads.

There's a coffeemaker and ice bucket. The room comes with an ironing board, iron, and umbrella.

Front desk staff (other than guy who checked me in):  

Worthless. Every time I had a question or request, no one could help me. They weren't sure if it was allowed or they'd follow up with me. I asked for a one hour late check-out and was told I'd have to call in the morning...what's the difference between 9pm and 6am when I have to go to work? Like I said: worthless.

Room Service:

TERRIBLE! This hotel cannot get it together! First day, I ordered a pizza late at night and it was burned to  crisp and served cold. That's appetizing, right?

I told them about this and they took it off my bill and sent up some fruit.

I tried to give them another shot with breakfast. I filled out my sheet and hung it on my door. The following morning, I waited...and waited...and finally called. They didn't have my order and told me to check my door. Lo and behold, my order was still hanging there. I called again. Very apologetic and my next breakfast was on the the house.

Overall, this hotel has a lonnnnnng way to go before it really reached the four-diamond status they tote. I'm not sure how they even got that rating. I'm baffled.

There are plenty of great places to stay in the city. Unfortunately, this hotel didn't offer the experience I'd expect from a 4-diamond hotel.

Staff was amazing! But for being in such a heavily populated area, and the business people around, you would think they would have an amazing internet system going. I had to have our internet fixed twice.. Was there for work, and got so far behind due to lack of internet.. And the shower had very little water pressure. I have a ton of hair.. couldn't wash my hair properly for 4 days.. I couldn't even get all the soap off my fave it was so bad.  If it weren't for those 2 majorly important things.. I would have loved my stay there.

I stayed here after getting a deal on LivingSocial. The hotel is new, clean, and modern. We arrived right at 3:00pm when a ton of other people were checking in as well... but it's tough to be mad about waiting when they're handing you a glass of free champagne.

Everything in our room was immaculate. I even mentioned to my boyfriend that I felt like I was the first person who had ever showered there since the bathroom was sparkling! Our room also had a small balcony with a view of the Handcock Tower and the Pru. Our king bed was super comfy and all the linens were nice.

This hotel also has an unbeatable location as you can easily walk to tons of restaurants, bars, theaters, and other things to do in less than 10 minutes.

However, the biggest bonus for me is that they are SUPER dog friendly. Like, I have an 80lbs black lab and they welcomed him with open arms. That's tough to come by.

Thank you Living Social for introducing us to the reasonably priced and newly renovated Revere Hotel (formerly a Radisson). Beautiful and conveniently located (especially for Emerson College families; or Wang, Colonial, Shubert etc. theater go-ers; walk-able to The Public Garden and Boston Common). From the glass of champagne at check-in in the unique and beautifully designed lobby to the friendly and accommodating staff thru-out (everyone seems happy to work here. Even our housekeeper was friendly and smilingly joyful!), we loved 'living here' for a night.

The decor is aesthetically contemporary - not plushly upscale but good looking, comfortable and still like-new-clean. Ours was a Junior Suite called The Loft which included two bathrooms (each with shower only): one of dramatically dark tile and the other a study in stark white. The bedroom was bathed in charcoals with pops of coordinating color; the living room in softer grays. Both rooms had slim balconies with high floor, fabulous vistas over the city. The bed featured soft, quality linens and pillows. Room included the nice touch of two comfy robes and a couple of pairs of slippers.

The only caveat in our room was the short closet space (and I mean short as in a long gown would have a hard time not spilling onto the floor), but that may have been unique to the construction of this room? Also, I suggest requesting a room away from the elevator (the elevator shaft was adjacent to our room, and its journeys were audible until I drowned that out with the white noise hum of the heating/cooling system fan).

For the young and the young at heart there is a very attractive destination called the Emerald Lounge with music, lots of seating, and dramatic lighting.

The restaurant - Rustic Kitchen (reviewed separately) - was as perfect for brunch on day two as it was for Valentine's dinner the night before. But there are plenty of other walk to dining choices too, including PF Chang's, Maggiano's, Legal Seafoods.

Parking is easy peasy in the adjacent Stuart Street garage (which offers $10 validated parking after 3PM for participating area restaurants including Rustic Kitchen).

Room Tip: Avoid rooms adjacent to elevator; elevator travel is audible (but can be drowned out with the white noise hum of the thermostatically controlled fan)

Very friendly staff, beautiful design, comfortable and sleek. The only think preventing that 5th star is the really lousy elevators -always slow and packed.

I stayed here a few weeks ago while visiting Boston for the first time.

From the moment we got out of our cab from the airport, the staff was so friendly! The room was beautiful with a balcony overlooking the city. The concierge was so helpful and polite. A woman at the front desk mailed a postcard for me with no trouble. The hotel is in a great location.. we were able to walk to Beacon Hill, Faneuil Hall, the North End, and more. It is a short 2 block walk from the Public Garden, which is a gorgeous park surronded with trees and has a pond in the middle- a must see in the fall! We had breakfast in the hotel and it was not your average hotel "here's some cereal and a waffle machine" breakfast, it was delicious and well put together. It has a 24/7 fitness center with lots of machines, weights, and more. The pool at the hotel was nice because it was inside and heated. The room had a coffee machine and the bathroom had really nice shampoo, cond, etc..good quality and big bottles, not the little tiny things you find at most hotels.

I would recommend this hotel to anybody. Great service, beautiful hotel!

Best customer service received in all my experiences at any hotel!!! Was there to help manage a friend's wedding and I was so thankful to have the pleasure of meeting Bob McCarthy. If it wasn't for him being so kind and helpful it would have been disastrous for them. It was pouring that day so all their plans to take pictures around Boston was ruined. Bob was able to help them by providing suggestions and giving them access to parts of the hotel where they were still able to take very unique, amazing, and memorable pictures. Words can no describe how thankful I am. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You help make their wedding day a success.

Loved that they had a pillow service in which you could pick a pillow that was right for you. Had the best Mojito at the Emerald Room. Room was huge and very comfortable and clean. Only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because of the perfume smell in the lobby that was overwhelming.

ROOFTOP POOL: what a bummer. I went last year and had two awful experiences but figured maybe that was bc it was it's first summer open. When I went back this year it was equally bad. We waited about 30 min for waitstaff...they never came to our table...so I went to the bar and stood there for about 8 minutes when the bartender chatted w her friend (and I was the only customer at the bar!). Drinks are small and overpriced. Food was awful (hummus plate). The pool might as well not be there : it's sort of inside, filled w little kids, and looks dirty/dated. The cabana area is lovely if you can deal w $$ entrance fee, the risk you might not even find a place to sit, rude poor service, bad food/drinks, and no bathrooms (well, one, but you'll wait about an hour to get in).

The reviews on Hotel.com raved about the Revere Hotel in Boston so I thought I'd give it a try when the hotel that I normally stayed at was out of my price range due to the 4th of holidays. The hotel was easy to find compared to the check-in desk, which was hidden behind a circular stairway and piece of art. The check-in process was simple and the front desk staff were low-key (it would have been nice if they were a little bit more inviting). I read about the champagne too and since my friend and I weren't offered any we asked. Upon arriving at our room I noticed empty champagne glasses outside the door of our room. Not a big deal, but it's the little things (or maybe I've watched one too many episodes of Hotel Impossible). The room was spacious and had a balcony. The beds were comfortable too. What set me off was the fact that upon entering the bathroom the toilet was covered in shavings of hair and possibly urine. It was disgusting! I called the front desk and they immediately corrected the situation, however it was quite a disruption with multiple phone calls and people walking in.So despite a few hiccups the overall experience at the Revere Hotel was okay, but not exceptional. I wish the hotel went the extra mile with service and attention to detail. I don't think I will return or recommend to a friend.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Revere Hotel a couple of weeks ago with our two dogs:  a two-year Rottweiler and a nine-month old Pit Bull.  There are so few hotels that are pet friendly, let alone luxury hotels.  The Revere Hotel did not disappoint!  How refreshing that the hotel does not have breed restrictions nor does it charge extra for your pets.  An added bonus:  the elevators were easy access from the parking garage so we did not have to walk through the lobby with the dogs.   There is a small park just outside, and the Boston Common is a half-block away.

The room was absolutely lovely.  The toiletries were high end and the lush bathrobe was a nice touch, as was the champagne in the lobby upon check-in and the free wi-fi.   The hotel's location was perfect.  We were in town to attend the Red Sox Duck Boat parade and we could not have been closer.   We will definitely stay there again, with or without the pups.

My room was not cleaned properly. When we walked in we saw foot prints of the prior customers and there was granola on the long chair(it was a good amount of it). Plus the carpet looked like it hasn't been vacuumed for weeks. Kinda gross.  Also even though I'm staying in a room that's pet friendly I don't think this warrants the room to smell like mildew or like prior wet dog and this scent was not coming from my dog. The hotel itself is in a great location and it is a nice hotel. I'm guessing that the non-dog rooms are much nicer. I personally wasn't impressed by this experience.

Update: maybe the person that checked me in the day was the c team or just off his game but when I went to ask for a late check out the next day, the staff was completely lovely. While my check in experience was far from good, my check out experience was delightful.  When I asked for a late check out, the staff was more than accommodating and when I checked out everyone was great.  We didn't get the complimentary champagne when we checked in, but that really didn't bother me so much as the condition of my room. Overall, this place deserves a 3.

This hotel is beautiful, modern and very accommodating. My BF and I were visiting Boston for my BDay. As we were checking in, Jacque at the front desk, gave us great dinner and bar recommendations. The very next day, the hotel sent me a bottle of champagne and chocolates for my Bday! This hotel has a great view of the skyline, located very central, and I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Boston.

As I sit on this rooftop I have realized that it is a nightmare.  Waited a half hour for the wrong drinks after making a reservation, got my second drink with a splash of non alcoholic vodka, and now I have been waiting for the check for about 30 minutes because the credit card machine is "broken".  Am I a hostage? Should I cancel my card and just accept this night as a loss? Why does this place suck so much when there is so much potential with the view and couches?  Don't come here unless you need a place to sleep on a roof but they'll prob kick you out before you can snooze so not worth it.   Sad sorry and just sick.

NOTE:  this review is for their rooftop deck only!
we decided to go in the first two weeks after it opened,
as there was no $30 COVER CHARGE for the 1st month.  
After July 1st 2013, your $30 cover includes towel & water.

STYLE (?):  The deck features LOTS of over-sized furniture.
The "couches" only seat two people, but occupy 1/3 of the deck,
leaving seating for only three dozen, but lots of standing room.

ATMOSPHERE:  We could not hear the music,
as there are NO SPEAKERS AT ALL on our half of the deck.
If you want to create a "hip" hangout for a hot Summer,
you *must* supply party tunes that the entire bar can hear.

STAFF:  The cute, young female wait staff is very fast and friendly
with the towels, our first drink and offering to take our picture.
Unfortunately, the bar staff took a whopping 15 for every drink ordered.

DRINKS:  OVER-PRICED...and I live down the block.
We ordered a $32 pitcher of Sangria (wine and juice),
but it only poured 2 glasses the size of a Red Solo Cup.
With a 20% tip, that's @ $40 for 2 glasses of 1/2 wine & 1/2 juice!

THE DEAL:  They advertise this as a "roof deck,"
BUT it's only on the 9th floor, NOT the top of the building.
They invite you to DRINK POOLSIDE on their deck,
BUT the POOL IS INSIDE...NOT ON THE DECK AT ALL.

I stayed here for a bachelorette party. i booked this hotel months ago, and made it clear I wanted adjoining rooms. I also called multiple times to confirm that the rooms would be adjoining. When I got there, I was told we had rooms across the hall from each other. The manager was rude and refused to apologize.

After getting back to the room around 12:30 on Friday night, I pulled back my sheets to find BLOOD on them. Needless to say, I was horrified. I called the front desk and two housekeepers came to change them. However, the manager (the same one who was rude about the rooms) came to the room. He assisted the housekeepers but never apologized! He also never offered to do anything to make our stay more comfortable. Once again, he was incredibly rude and made me feel like a burden, despite the fact that I was paying far too much to stay there.

The rooms were ok but nothing special. The elevators were incredibly slow. There isn't a service elevator, so bellmen with luggage carts have to use the same elevators, which makes it very slow and crowded when everyone is trying to check out at the same time. We waited for over five minutes for an elevator, and the ride down took several minutes because it stopped at every floor. The bellman was very nice and apologetic about the wait. The rooftop is really nice, and we enjoyed sitting outside.

The only thing that saved our stay was the female manager (whose name I didn't catch). After two terrible experiences with the male manager, I didn't bother asking for anything or arguing late Friday night after the sheets incident. When I went down to the front desk the next morning, this woman was incredibly kind and helpful, and very apologetic. At this point, I was so frustrated, all I was really looking for was an apology. She was lovely, comped one of our rooms for one night, and sent a bottle of champagne to the room. However, despite her kindness, I won't be returning.

First let's start with the positive:
This hotel is in a great location, the room was clean, the towels and skoah bath products were really nice and the concierge was extremely helpful. Sparkling wine at check in was a nice touch.
Now things that could be improved:
We were served breakfast in a banquet room that was dirty, because of a private party going on in the restaurant. Don't order the oatmeal, that was mostly water. The decor was pretty outdated, especially the emerald lounge. The staff was friendly and helpful here, but I felt like my feet were going to stick to the floor. The decor looked straight out of the late 70's, early 80's, and I have a feeling they just re-did it. :/ very pricey hotel for what it is.

Can't complain about a hotel that greets you with a glass of champagne! Haha. This hotel is great. I'm not sure if I'm spoiled by the spacious hotels all over the world I've been too but I'm in a suite and it's tiny? Maybe that's just the east coast thing I will never get used to.

Here's a tip: the showers do not give much water pressure it's like showering in light rain shower. This is the second time I stay here and I had the same complaint the last time as well. FIX IT!

It seems like this hotel wanted to introduce some new-age aesthetics (see the hotel down the street that has one letter) to its old enterprise of a mid-tier chain hotel.

In many ways it has - the toiletries are impressive (full bottles), champagne at checkin, the (almost) spartan lobby that smells (a little too much) like a department store, and obviously the pitch-dark floor occupied by their Emerald club.

There are, of course, some very problematic remnants of the old "rad" hotel:

1. The elevators suck.  There are four.  They are very slow.  I didn't see any, but if they have service elevators get on that.

2. The hallways are not inviting.

3. The hotel is horribly disconnected by being separated with the parking garage ramp.  Lobby on one side, restaurants on the other.  Business center on restaurant side (I think you can cross above).

It's a nice hotel though.  Lobby feels great to walk into, both during day and night.  Just make sure you don't have to use the restroom, because the only public ones are across the parking garage ramp.

I came here for the Drink Craft Beer Spring Fest (Space 57) and had so much fun! The setup was perfect.. there were hundreds of people and tons of space. I know someone who spent the night at the Revere Hotel and liked it a lot, so I would definitely spend the night there if needed.. I live close but if I were going to attend a late night festivity in the area I would recommend it.

Location is good. Near Boston Common, Chinatown and all T (subway) trains.  Room is clean. Bed is not too soft, so it's more comfortable than other hotels.

Front desk service wasn't up to my expectation.  They gave me two queen size beds instead of king size bed as stated on the page.  The bedsheets are not comfortable.  The bathroom is small and bathroom appliances are 3 star hotel quality.  There is no view from the balcony.  Balcony is simple concrete without any furniture, so it looks likes construction site. AC is extremely noise, so we had to turn it off.  Elevator is right next to our room, and it felt like highway every time the elevator is passing by.

This hotel is on the edge of an improving Chinatown area. There tends to be a lot of homeless people asking for money out front and it is not the safest neighborhood at night. The rooms are well decorated and clean. The pool area on our last visit was clean and well stocked. We arrived at 1:00 pm and our room was not ready yet but the staff happily checked us into another well before check in. The one thing that I do not like is the soap and shampoo is in bottles that are attached to the wall that they refill. Kinda Gross. I have not parked here but heard it is rather expensive.

The revere hotel located near the Boston commons is a must!! Having stayed in hundreds of hotels during my 30 yr career as a flight attendant, I can't say enough about the entire experience at the revere. A warm greeting curbside, followed by a glass of perfectly chilled champagne at check in....the accommodations immaculate and very spacious....Comfortable beds with luxurious bedding.
By far the most important is the staff. They will bend over backwards to fulfill any request....at any time.
I totally messed up my last reservation, totally my fault, but thought I would shoot the manager, Tim an email to see if there might be anything he could come up with at the last minute. I emailed him very late his time hoping for a response the next day....to my surprised delight, he responded immediately ( pls refrain from being as rude as I if possible, and keep business hours in mind!), promised to try and do his best to minimize my mistake in booking. The next afternoon, not only was my mistake resolved, he looked up our next visit and upgraded our rooms at the best online published rate for the standard rooms we had booked!) Makes you feel your business is very valued even though we aren't "frequent business travelers".... Just parents on the occasional visits to our student in a nearby university! Well done again Tim & staff! Thank you

I stayed here for a conference recently. I arrived much earlier than the check in time but the front desk staff were more than happy to provide me with a room. There was free champagne in the lobby and wifi available throughout the hotel.
The room was beautiful. The bedding was clean and comfortable. They even had a pillow menu to ensure you have a comfortable stay (free of course). The soaps and shampoos were excellent, quality products.
The conference facilities were average. The food was great on both days.
The hotel is conveniently located within waking distance of many tourist attractions which was great because you don't have to waste time traveling from place to place when you're short on time.
Normally, I'm not a fan to hotel restaurants, but this one had a good selection and were great tasting.
On my next visit to Boston, I'll definitely see if I can find a deal for this hotel. I would love to stay here again.

We only stayed for an evening. We met friends from Atlanta there, as we were coming from Chicago, and the next day we ferried over to P'town. Needless to say, we will stay at the Revere again!

The lobby is incredibly cool and unique. The staff, from our limited interactions with them, were very helpful and courteous. They, along with the fun and funky lobby, set the tone for a great overnight visit.

The rooms were very clean and modern without trying too hard. This place knows its identity and that adds to its elegance, sophistication, and quality. Our balcony overlooked the roofdeck, but never did we hear noise from it. The view was of the southwestern part of the city, and the sunset, which we enjoyed, was sublime.

This hotel is close to public transportation and several restaurants. It is also very close to great shopping on Newbury Street and Boston Common. Another huge plus is that it is pet-friendly, and that doesn't mean just dogs. Although our two cats don't travel with us, it is nice to know that all pets are welcome here.

I cannot wait to stay here again.

Thought it would be better, honestly. The room itself & bathroom is small which is expected in the city I guess, but as I always say...the devil is in the details.
Linens are nice, but bed is not that comfy. The room has foo foo furniture that looks expensive but impractical. The lighting is very dim in main in the main room and 3 of the 5 lights are connected and only come on together with the main switch in the foyer/by the door. So...for example, I got up early to attend a conference and let my hubby sleep in, but when I turned on the foyer light so I could see into the closet (as the closet has no light) the big lamp next to the bed and the desk/table came on too (woke up the hubby). And the full length mirror is by the bed with no light source. The bedside lamps are not bright or adjustable and not flexible for reading or seeing yourself in the full length mirror.
The coffee maker is a miniature joke and just pumps out scaulding hot dirty water into an uninsulated cup thats too hot to hold without an Ovenglove.
Just stop by a Dunkin Donuts, youll thank me.
The toilet........scaaaary! I think its a low water flusher which is great, but the flush is sooooo fast, loud and powerful, its actually an unpleasant experience. You kinda have to brace yourself each for each flush.
The built in toiletries ( bath gel, shampoo, etc) were nice because you could pump as much as you need without opening tiny bottles, caps...etc.
Stayed on the top 24th floor and we could hear every horn, siren, drunken argument, shouting, etc.....its the city and kind of expected, but FYI Fri-Sat nights (especially) are noisy...bring earplugs.
Late night / room service comes from a diner a few blocks away and although, very affordable....the food doesnt travel well and the restaurant doesnt consider hotel dwellers being without kitchenware.....they delivered the food pretty quick, but packed no utensils, no salt/pepper, no napkins, just soggy bar food in a plastic container. Oh, and the TV is not HD, my husband suggested I mention that;)

Happy Halloween, Yelp! I recently visited Beantown to catch a production in the theater district. I had made arrangements and booked myself a room for one night only, knowing the show would get out rather late (past my usual bed time). I wanted the comfort of having a short stroll to a soft, inviting bed. Now that sounds nice! I chose The Revere because of its name. I'm a huge fan of Paul Revere. It must have taken a lot of guts to make that midnight ride. I know, I know! It sounds silly, but it's important to honor the men that founded our great nation. The Revere was a three-minute walk from the theater. Very good.

I was immediately confused upon arrival. I pulled into what I thought was the parking garage. The valet took my car, but where's the lobby!? There was nobody around to guide me. I wondered aimlessly about with my suitcase and eventually found myself lost in some sort of function/ballroom full of chatting businessmen. Next, I took an elevator, hoping it would bring me to the lobby, but it took me into a parking garage! I'm so confused. I finally found the doors off to the side (the lobby) with lack of proper signage. This lobby was one of the oddest setups I have ever seen. Is this a library at Hogsworth? There was a circular sitting area ringed by a ramp and staircase. I followed it twice around, dragging my suitcase, until I noticed a small desk hidden to the side.

Let's talk about the room. Cold, antiseptic, hipster, nihilistic (Shakespeare quotes on the wall, ugh, not a fan) and not too cozy. There was a balcony with a breath-taking view, but the low concrete railing gave me instant vertigo. Also, no chairs? I didn't spend much time out there. The door to the balcony didn't have a functioning lock and that made me feel a little unsafe. I was rather high up, but I feared someone climbing into my room (you never know these days). This hotel offers something I have never seen in all my travels: a "pillow menu", with such fare as "side-sleeper", "back-sleeper", "anti-snore", and "hypoallergenic". If only they had one called "comfortable". I tried all four of these pillows and all four were trash. I should have brought my own pillow that I got from Target. I figured with an entire menu to choose from that I could find at least one that fit my needs. Nope.

On the positive side, the toilet had the strongest, fastest, most violent flush in all my experience. Not one single clog the entire night (see my Baltimore Hyatt review for when things go wrong). My biggest complaint about the bathroom is the shower. I like a power spray and this was a gentle drizzle. Instead of washing off the grime and grease, it just tickled my face. Cute, but not effective.

To cap off this review, I will quote the funky poster that was hanging above my bed:      

Out, out, brief candle,
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more.

Well, Revere Hotel, you won't be hearing from Renny anymore...

The Revere is clean, with great service, and the modern decor is reminiscent of a spa! Instead of small bottles of shampoo & conditioner, they had large bottles with pumps that were refillable. I really appreciate the environmental impact of less packaging, but they also had two different lines of shampoo/conditioner/body wash to choose from! And hand soap, cleansing gel for the face and hand lotion! They had robes & slippers, and the bedding was decadent, with and entire menu of pillows to choose from! Complimentary overnight shoe shine, and a big plus in my book, a lighted, magnified makeup mirror, and a real hair dryer with enough power to dry long hair in a reasonable amount of time.

Location was great--just across from Boston Common, walkable to Quincy Market, the green line and the red line. Definitely a touristy area, but just walk a little and you'll find some independent coffee shops, sandwich shops, and a book store.

I'll definitely stay here again!

Had a great stay for Thanksgiving weekend! The staff are all awesome. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champs on arrival and one afternoon, they set up a hot chocolate and sweets bar in the lobby to raise money for a charity.

The rooms are spacious and clean. They also come stocked with full size bottles of skoah products, which I totally took advantage of (the Mane Squeeze shampoo/conditioner smells ah-mazing). The best part is still the location since it's so close to many T stops, the shops on Newbury & Boylston, Chinatown, Downtown Crossing, and the Commons.

There are a few downsides that rolled over from the Radisson like the sucky shower pressure and thin walls but overall, I'd definitely recommend a stay here!

P.S. Free WiFi in your room! Although it can be a little slow at times.

Bought a Living Social deal online and booked a one night stay for a Saturday night. Check in is at 4pm but we checked in at 2pm no questions asked. Very futuristic/modern decor. Pets are allowed up to a certain weight so you will come across some furry friends, FYI. Very convenient location, short walking distance to Newbury St, Boylston St, Boston Common and Statehouse area. Lots of food and drink options. Hotel is very clean and staff was pleasant. Each room has a balcony, we had a room facing downtown and the statehouse, pretty impressive view. I will be keeping this place on my list of go to places in Boston, my favorite is still The Liberty, but the Revere is a close second.

My friends and I came here for a quick trip to Boston. We were drawn in by its central location, as well as the fact that it is an extremely dog-friendly hotel.

I was extremely impressed by almost every aspect of our stay. Our hotel room was larger than a standard room, had awesome locally made amenities in the shower (including peppermint shampoo!), a balcony, and was extremely clean.

The main reason the stay was so extremely enjoyable is because of the impeccable customer service. From the gentlemen at the front desk (who gave me a whole bag of treats for my dog), to the housekeeping staff, everyone was upbeat, professional and friendly. Youssef, who works the valet, took every last moment to make sure we were comfortable and attended to. He took my dog for a quick stroll into the hotel, greeted us every day to see what we needed help with, and even went out of his way to help with a small issue we had on our last evening. He, along with the other valet staff members, were single-handedly the reason our stay was above and beyond expectations.

Also, this hotel is one of the few places that has SurfSet classes (on Sharktank). The classes are small (and very popular), so we weren't able to squeeze into the class times during our stay. Astrid, the instructor, emailed me directly and accommodated to us by offering an additional class. She was amazing and it was a great experience-- I would recommend everyone to try it! The class is conducted on the rooftop, where there is also an amazing rooftop bar. The website makes it seem like its a "rooftop pool bar"-- but the pool is actually indoor and geared more towards children. It's not the type of pool where you have a swim-up bar, but the atmosphere of the Rooftop is extremely chic and very well decorated.

We left on Sunday, and were planning on hanging out at the pool. However, some sort of event company rents out the entire space for private parties. The girls working were extremely friendly, and let us hang out on a pool bed for the timebeing, but did tell us once the party arrived we could only sit on the regular chairs because everything else was reserved. I felt it was slightly tacky that even if we wanted to rent out a cabana or pool beds as guests, that we were not able to.

There is a bar called the Emerald lounge that is basically attached to the hotel, it was great for Friday when we arrived since we did not get in until almost midnight and didn't feel like travelling far for a few drinks. I wasn't overly impressed with the bar, but it had decent music. Apparently there is a separate area that was closed for the evening, and due to this the bar was extremely too crowded.

Hopefully this review is helpful, overall it was a great experience and I would definitely come back!

Bumped on the first night but....

Having arrived on the last flight from Heathrow we arrived & were disappointed to be told that the hotel was full & we were to be moved to the at Hampton Inn the airport.

However.....

We were given champaign & had our taxis paid for & upon arriving bank the next day the staff were super helpful & arranged an apologie & an amount on our tab - plus a king size bed on the top floor.

Claire (manager) went beyond to try & make our stay perfect which we want to thank her.

I have only given them a 4 rather than 5 as we got bumped - all the other facilities were 5 out of 5.

Thanks Claire for trying your hardest!

Stayed on the 22nd floor (thanks to the front desk associate who understood it was my first time in Boston and I wanted to see the city) and the room was superb. The room had Shakespeare art, a comfortable bed with a pillow menu (talk about options), and a bathroom filled with natural, Canadian lotions and soaps. There's a restaurant and lounge attached to the hotel, but not IN the hotel so there's no disturbance. There's always a taxi outside, and assistance to get a ride if you'd like a private car. Truly, the hotel is 4-stars and everything in your room has a price-tag so don't take anything home (I was charged $6 for taking the plastic bag in the closet to use for my dirty clothes - you know, the white plastic bag for dirty laundry? yup)

It would get 4-starts, but the smell of the lobby was as overwhelming as a holister store. TOO much perfume.

Stayed 3 nights early August 2013. Got a smoking deal through Hotwire otherwise could not afford it!  They still gave us champagne upon checkin.

Room was impeccable and had everything including house coat, slippers and iPod dock. Nice view of the city from balcony. It was quiet and comfortable.

Rooftop bar was cool; there was a fashion show that night with lots of models and waitresses scantily clad.  Did not use the pool but it looked OK, a little boring. Drink selection was weak; better selection and service at the Emerald Lounge downstairs. The restaurant next door looked good but we didn't try it.

Took a peek into their private movie theatre near the main entrance which has a bar, space themed with big comfy chairs and tables for your drinks. You might be able to check it out even if you're not at hotel guest.

Parking is expensive at $40/day but you can park underground at Boston Common for less if you don't mind walking 2 blocks.

They had me as a fan when I walked in at 5am, after a red eye flight & 9 hours before check in time, and they put me in a room right away so I could shower and sleep. Front desk always pleasant and helpful.

Plus Concierge Jill M. was so very helpful. The symphony tickets and advice was perfect.

Late night room service is contracted out to a neighborhood restaraunt that delivered  disappointing (burnt and tasteless) meals twice. It's convenient but only if your desperate. Better to order prior to 11pm or go out to eat.
Thanks!

Yes, the hotel was great.  Awesomely convenient location, clean room with a great bathroom, and easy access to great dining.
But what made our stay outstanding was the hospitality of the staff.  Jacque at the front desk went out of her way to send us a special treat for our anniversary with a hand written note.
I've never experienced such warm, welcoming hotel staff.  Definitely would recommend this lovely hotel!

We checked into the Revere Hotel on New Year's eve; check-in was good.  On New Year's day, when we took shower, the water in bathtub drained extremely slowly (I hate having to stand in dirty water).  Went to front desk to ask for another room, but they insisted that we stay in our room and they would send engineer to fix it.  Engineer did come up, and after 20 minutes, he left and said it was fixed.  When we used shower again, we encountered the same problem.  We had dinner reservations so we let hotel and arrived back late.  At checkout I mentioned the problem again, they said they would have it taken care of for next guest.  We received our breakfast meal from hotel restaurant comped (Total of $25).  
Not worth all the hassle!  Especially since parking was $40 a day.  
We will not be going back to this hotel!!

For the price and caliber of this hotel, I expected more. Actually, for any hotel, I would expect more.

My mother and I will never be staying at this hotel again, nor do I recommend anyone who wants a pleasant stay does either, because the experience we had here was really terrible.

First the positives:
-The rooms were nice and clean. Room service meals and service was positive overall.
-Location is great.

Now, to the negatives:
-The security at this hotel sucks. They hardly ever have people patrolling the doors or the lobby. This is especially a problem because of the shady crowd that enters and exits this place. Also, the elevators are not at all secure. Anyone from the public can go on any floor. Why does someone who isn't staying at the hotel have access to every floor if they are only coming to the hotel for the bar? Also, since no one is guarding the elevators, literally anyone from the street can enter the hotel. Other city hotels I've stayed at, such as the Millennium Hilton in NYC, don't just let anyone go on any floor and also have more legitimate security. After an incident my mother had (described in the next point), she wasn't even comfortable with me staying here the following night when I went out with my friends and stayed out late. I ended up crashing with a friend (thereby defeating the purpose of having a hotel).
-My mom had a series of really negative and sometimes scary experiences with drunk customers and non-customers at this hotel. On one night, when I was still out, a very drunk man came banging at her door shouting at her to let him in. Another time, in the middle of the day, she had issues with drunk people bothering her and others near the lobby. The Revere is known for it's poolside bar as well as its lounge to people all over the city. I went to the poolside bar for a drink, the drinks are extremely strong. People come here to get wasted at all times of the day. And, it's not a classy crowd.
-The Management and concierges here are real jerks. We were encouraged by the room service lady to speak to the manager of this establishment after her incident with the drunk man banging at her door in the middle of the night. First, we dealt with an insanely rude and argumentative concierge who told us that we needed to get over it and that the situation was completely out of their control. Then the manager on duty (Saturday 7/26 in the afternoon), Justin, came to speak with us and it was much of the same. No sincere apology, no offers of assurance, and no offers of anything to make it up to us. He replied with a rude argument at everything we were trying to say him. They pretty much rolled their eyes at everything at my mother said. This man should no longer be the manager here, and I have absolutely no hesitation saying this after the poor customer service we received and paying $400/night.
-The poolside bar is very overrated and the service sucks. The teenage girls working here are way too engrossed in talking to their underage friends who they let in to take anyone's orders. We waited over 30 minutes for our hummus platter just to notice that it was sitting at the bar. Everything about this place blows.
-Using the elevators here is horrible. They are tiny and cramped and there simply aren't enough of them. The elevator situation is a huge problem and it needs to be addressed.
-No minifridge in the room...weird?

I hope whoever is in charge takes note and that customers avoid this hotel in the future. The management should really be ashamed for how we were treated/our experience, and there is much, much room for improvement.

Four of us went on a weekend road trip from NYC and stayed at the Revere. Self-parking is very convenient in the same building. The lobby is strikingly beautiful. Our room was not ready for over an hour and a half so we waited in the lobby. The front staff was very nice and apologetic. Luckily they serve champagne when you check-in, so we were replenished several times which made the time pass faster. The room was furnished in modern, contemporary style, but four guys don't really care all that much about how frou-frou it is as long as it is clean (we stayed at a LaQuinta the night before)!

Revere is a bit away from central downtown but still within walking distance of many sites, and of course, The Common is basically 1.5 blocks away. It was a pleasant stay and we'd come back the next time we are in Boston.

Had a wonderful stay at the Revere Hotel last week. Very nice interior the rooms were beautifully appointed and staff very gracious. The only disappointment was that the indoor pool was closed. Had hoped for a quick swim but guess will have to wait until summer. I would definitely go back!

I recently booked a suite at the Revere for my fiances birthday party and had a great time overall. This is mostly because our friends were there and made our night awesome. As for the hotel itself,  I am giving it only 2 stars since almost everything went wrong or had some sort of issue.

1. When we arrived for check-in, they did not have our room on file and I had show them my confirmation email in order to get a suite. 20 minutes of wasted time. Quite annoying.

2. Also at check-in, we are supposed to be welcomed with a champagne toast. Instead, we got orange soda since the Massachusetts liquor laws have changed in 2015. The website should probably reflect this change since all guests are expecting champagne on arrival, not the choice of cider or orange soda....

3. There was no refrigerator in the room. I repeat, there was no refrigerator in the JUNIOR SUITE at the hotel.

4. The iPod hookup in the room didn't work. We called to request a new one and they wouldn't give us one. It was also for the iPhone/iPod 4 and we had iPhone 5's. They should probably explain it's compatibility in the description before people come expecting to play music.

5. Security came to our room at 9 PM ON A SATURDAY NIGHT because we were too "loud." Mind you, it was a room of 25 year olds who were just catching up and having some drinks in our suite prior to going out. We weren't staying there all night and trashing the room. The security guard said "someone called and complained" (again, it was 9 PM ON A SATURDAY NIGHT IN BOSTON... do people really have nothing else to do than complain about others celebrating???) He also insisted on waiting outside until everyone left except for 4 people.... Because apparently you can only have 4 people in your room even if you are in a suite that fits at least 20..... I'm pretty sure I paid top dollar for the room and expected to do what we wanted with it. It wasn't trashed, it wasn't under-aged drinking, it was just a pre-party get together. After speaking with the security guard TWICE while he was standing outside of our room, he finally let us be and said if he gets a second complaint then the manager would come up.

6. During check-in, the concierge said that our guests and ourselves can cut the line and get in for free at the Emerald Lounge in the hotel, which we told everyone obviously because that's awesome. Turns out you can only do this with 4 PEOPLE PER ROOM. So that was a lie. Half of us got in for free since they went down before cover was charged and the other half got charged. Thanks again Revere!

7. After we left the Emerald Lounge, we had to beg to have 8 of our guests come upstairs with us..... Again, why did we even bother paying for the room if we can't use it? Who buys a 1 bed suite for 2 people? Obviously its for having people over, especially if you're responsible. Our friends just needed to come upstairs and recoup before going home.

8. In the morning, we went down for breakfast in the atrium. We were expecting the usual grab-n-go muffin/bagel/scrambled egg set up but instead its a sit down breakfast that is charged to your room. I love spending $40.00 for a mediocre breakfast.... My french toast was way too dry for the price. When we were leaving, we heard this other party looking for the same usual hotel grab-n-go breakfast, so apparently nobody knows about this in advance. I might as well have gotten room service but didn't want to pay.

9. Parking is $40.00. That is all.

So basically what I paid for the suite (~400.00 plus a $150.00 security deposit which who knows if I'll get back) got us nothing but 2 balconies (that aren't connected and have a short barrier that is terrifying for anyone over 5'5) and a comfy bed.

Do yourself a favor and only book a room here if you plan on sleeping and leaving. And don't waste your money on a suite.

I stayed here for 3 nights for a conference in November. My friend found this hotel and deal on booking.com . It was very affordable.

Highlights:
Centrally located in downtown Boston. Friendly staff who are very knowledgeable about hotspots. Free wifi was available and so important these days. Free glasses of champagne upon check-in. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the city.

The only con is that they would not allow us to check out 2 hours later so we could attend the conference in the early afternoon.

I stayed at this hotel in mid December for a birthday getaway with my boyfriend.

The location is excellent-right near the common, lots of restaurants, and close to the theaters if you are catching a show. We went to blue man group and sheer madness ( both less then a 5 minute walk from hotel)

The hotel staff was always very nice and accommodating to us. They sent up toothpaste at 1am because I realized I forgot mine-and didn't mind giving us extra champagne at check in!

The room was clean  and pretty big (junior suite) I was a little shocked at the size of the bathroom-I thought it was pretty small considering the size of the room.

The only negative I have is that the tv in the bedroom did not work at all-every station besides two were fuzzy. We didn't get the hotel to watch tv but it would have been nice to be able too while laying in bed!

Besides that this place was great and I would definitely stay again.

Oh and I got a good rate 189 for a junior suite through a groupon so be on the lookout!

I was incredibly impressed! My boyfriend and I stayed here for the first time over the holiday season. We were going to a show at the Opera House which was conveniently close by. When I had called to make reservations I mentioned that this was our first little romantic getaway. Well they must have made a note of that because it felt like we got a little special treatment!
We had a room with what must have been the best view and about half an hour after checking in, someone came by to deliver complimentary chocolate and champagne. If that doesn't make you feel taken care of and appreciated, I don't know what would!
Room was modern and clean, bed very comfy and my boyfriend just loved all the little shower products.
After the show that night we thought about going out but then decided to just stay in the room to enjoy eachothers company and lovely view. It was such a great night thanks in part to the attention to detail the Revere provided for us.
Only two small negatives were the 'balcony' was definitely lacking With such a lovely view you'd hope to be able to sit out there and enjoy it when the weather is right. And check in was a very busy time but they handled it well and even gave everyone a glass of champagne while they were waiting. These guys definitely know how to do customer service!
We were able to leave our car parked in the garage the following afternoon after checking out, which was super convenient so that we could go walk around Boston a bit.
After that experience, Revere will always be my first choice hotel in that neighborhood!

My boyfriend and I wanted to go to Boston for a quick weekend getaway. When reserving the room via telephone, we confirmed that it was a pet friendly hotel (I have a 40lb blue heeler) and we decided to spring for a nicer room on the 16th floor.

We checked in at 4am, exhausted from a late night at work and long drive. At check in, we were told that we couldn't check in because their system was being audited and we weren't on their paper list. We waited for about 30 min to get our room, only to find out that it was not the same room that we booked. They said that we couldn't have pets on that particular floor, but still attempted to charge us for the nicer room. So our room wasn't ready at 4am, they gave us the wrong room, AND tried charging us for the better room.  The hotel did send wine and chocolate to the room and comped our valet in order to make a mends, but it was still frustrating to have to deal with it all, especially at 4am when we wanted to go to straight to bed.

To boot, 2 days after we checked out and paying the bill, there was a $250 charge on my boyfriend's credit card dated post check out. We had used the card to reserve the room, but a different one to pay the bill. They were apologetic on the phone and said they would fix it, but really???? You would think after all the hassle, they would take caution and be sure that everything would be processed correctly.

Overall, really disappointed. Good location, but bad experience.

Give me access to your stars so that I can make this a Zero Star Review. We don't arrive in Boston until 9:00AM and knowing we have a confirmation to be in this hotel from the day before if we chose to do so. Yet what do they tell us... I'm sorry you were a "No-Show" so we had to cancel your reservation. Really? I mean really, is that the best answer you've got? I reminded them that I had spoken with the manager (and I told them who he was, but he hadn't arrived yet) the day before informing him of my delayed arrival and he said "No worries, your actual room number is blocked out for you because you are with a group."

That's when they started looking at each other all dumb founded. They couldn't disregard the managers intelligence because the gent I spoke with was the highest on the chain of commands.  Turns out they gave away my room to somebody they weren't supposed to give it to.  

All they could do now was apologize for there lies.

Room Quality 2 out 5
Cleanliness 4 out of 5
Bathroom Size 0 out 5
Water Pressure in Shower 1 out of 5
Pillows (for me) 2 out of 5
Mattress (Firm/Yet Plush) 4 out of 5

BUT I WILL NOT GO BACK!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a special birthday weekend in Boston.  We bought this room with a Living Social Deal.    It was winter, so we didn't experience the whole rooftop scene.

Pros: Rooms were definitely clean and quiet.  Good view. Bed was comfortable, and the pillow menu was nice.  Robes, towels, and slippers were comfortable.  They also gave a small glass of champagne when we checked it.    I left my camera charger at home, and they  charged it behind the desk with a charger that was in lost and found.  They also called us when our room was ready (since we arrived at the hotel early that day).  I also appreciated the recycling in the room, and the fact that they didn't use throw-away bottles for the shampoo and soap.

Cons: I felt like almost all the staff there were a little snooty.  I'm not sure if they treated us like that b/c we had a coupon.  In my opinion, that's when they should be extra hospitable, so we'll want to come back.

From front desk to valet and the guy down stairs that picked up my phone call EVAN! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfy! And the beauty emerald lounge... They were very welcoming and pleasant to converse with getting a bottle or cocktail! I would recommend this place 100 percent to people that is visiting Boston!

Thanks again Revere Hotel!

First and foremost, why do they not have hard cider? Not everyone wants to drink wine/beer/liquor.  This review is specifically about the "rooftop lounge" vs. the actual hotel:

Pros:
-Nice breeze on a hot night
-not too deep into downtown area (easily walkable from South End/Back Bay)
-Places to sit (if you get there early enough). Not TOO crowded.
-People watching is fun (who the fuck pays 2000 dollars for a cabana for their 28th birthday?)
-no cover charge
-good music.

Cons:
-escorts. blond, slutty looking, high boot wearing escorts.
-jersey shore dudes. fat, bald, sunglass-at-night-wearing dudes. trash trash trash.
-bar was lacking drink selection + was over priced (as per usual for Roof Top Bars)
-too dark; i.e. is that guy actually cute or is he jersey shore trash?

Worth going one time--view is not nearly as good as the Colannade and we asked for pashminas because we were cold and no one followed up with us....... WTF!

neat hotel.  glad we stayed there.  the best feature:  its location.  clearly an older hotel building, but strongly renovated.

+1 for accepting bookings via priceline.  we were very pleased with the rate we negotiated.

+1 for good smells in common places.  i think this hotel pumps a cologne/perfume in the air in common places.  we enjoyed it.

+1 for free champagne at check-in.  nice touch.

+1 for staff.  extremely courteous ... from the front desk to random workers we'd run into in the elevators.  also, great attention to detail:  one of these random workers we spotted brushing grooves on elevator floors at each floor.

+0 for slow-ish elevators elevators.  not uncommon to be amidst a group of 12+ people waiting in the lobby for an upward elevator.

+1 for good beds.  we both slept great.  a bit on the soft side.

+1 for good linens.  my wife was impressed, and she's a touch critic  :)

+1 for pillow menu, though we didn't use it.

+1 for lots of outlets in room.  the more hotels i stay in, the more i learn that this is a rarity.

+1 for good shower head.

-1 for spotty WiFi (20th floor).  it worked when it worked.  you're better off to just use LTE.

-1 for wiggly shower handle.  still functional, but it didn't exactly scream "we care about quality."

-1 for very loose deadbolt screws.  i'm not sure that latching the deadbolt added much security to the room.

-1 for finding a previous occupant's nail clippings around the perimeter of the bed.  ew.

-1 our A/C couldn't keep up with how we set it.  we couldn't get the room cooler than 72 (which is fine, but we like to sleep in cooler weather).

we enjoyed our stay here.  recommended for anyone looking to explore downtown boston on foot!

The Revere Hotel had an unexpected look of an apartment building you'd see in like 1970's Communist Ukraine. Boring sterile concrete architecture with the giant vertical  "Revere" letters noticed on the approach down Stuart street.
The lobby on the other hand is extremely modern with abstract art pieces. The front desk staff was so nice and made check in painless. She gave us one king instead of two queens and the highest floor.
The rooms have a modern-retro style that borders on being tacky. Flat screen TV, desk, chair, safe, coffee, tea, and bottled water. There is no mini fridge, but that was ok because I rarely use it anyway.
The coolest thing about the room was the balcony. Sliding glass door opens to a balcony with two chairs overlooking the city. It immediately invoked every immature thought of shit I could drop over the edge, but my wife quickly crushed my dreams.
The bathroom was stocked with pump lotion, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. I have never seen that before in any hotel, so you won't get a chance to clean the place out before you leave.
The TV's reception sucked which was surprising, and was definitely not HD.
There is WiFi, but it seemed spotty cutting in and out. Other than shampoo, conditioner, and toilet paper you're going to have to bring everything else.
Check out was easy and so was valet parking. Bed was comfortable and hotel very quiet. Would stay again.

I really liked this place. From checkin to check out was wonderful. A boutique hotel in Boston Common. The staff was really friendly and the amenities were great; they have free wifi.

Nice views of the city. When I checked in they gave you a complimentary glass of sparkling cider or blood orange soda - nice touch. When I left I asked if there was a loyalty program. I could see myself staying there again.

The Revere hotel is SWANKY, y'all!

I took the Amtrak up from NYC for another weekend away in my fave city evarrr. The walk from the Back Bay station was not too bad at all, except that it was like 4 degrees and I still can't get the hang of not packing like I'm going on a 6 month expedition with no laundry service, but that is neither here nor there....the point is, the walk from Back Bay  is easy if you happen to be taking Amtrak.

So check in time is 4 and I rolled in around 2:15. I was hoping they'd have a room for me as I've never found 2:15 to be an unreasonable time to try and check in...however, while I was waiting, I noticed one of the clerks at the front desk curtly informing a guest that she was sorry, check in time was 4:00 and basically there was no possible way they could have a room for him before then. At all. No way. Not gonna lie, I may or may not have tweeted at that moment "I'm about to blast this place on yelp and I haven't even checked in yet..."

The truth is, I don't know the circumstances of that guests' particular reservation or the happenings of that particular clerks' day, so I should just shut up about it and worry about my own self. Turns out, when it was my turn, I was assisted by seriously THE most charming, courteous, efficient and all around awesome gal that I forgot all about the scene I'd just been witness to and instead just sipped my delicious glass of champagne while I waited for my room keys. I wish I had gotten this lovely lady's name because she was delightful...I just loved her.

Once in my room, I noticed that I had a killer view of the Pru and a great little balcony that I'd have loved to take full advantage of had it not been, as previously mentioned, sub arctic. I had a hard time locating the thermostat and it felt like it was about a million degrees in there when I walked in so I had to actually open the sliding glass doors a crack till it cooled off. I'm just an airhead because I found the thermostat later right there on the wall....

There was a TON of drawer space and plenty of room in the closet for hangables, outlets where you need them (next to the bed) and a big, fancy bathroom. The refillable soaps, lotions, shampoos and conditioners were kind of cool because it's a little annoying using those itty bitty individual bottles... like what if you have a lot of hair and need more than one tiny bottle and now you're already in the shower with your hair all wet and you have to go peeking out the hotel door in a towel looking for the housekeeping cart? Nobody needs that hassle.  Plus, they have two different scents, so you can choose between the more manly, minty tea-tree scent or the fresher sort of cucumber fresh scent. That was a nice touch.

The tub is deep. Deep enough for a bubble bath. I guess taking a bath at a hotel is kind of an icky thought, but this tub was begging to be used so I obliged. The water pressure in the shower was a little iffy. It seemed not to be consistent, which was a little annoying, but not a big deal.

Beds here are way comfy, sheets were awesome, lots of pillows. Basically my dream bed. The hallways smell like tea...it's delightful.

The wi-fi, while free, is pretty awful. It looked like I had a full signal the whole time but nothing was loading and it was frustrating. Also worth mentioning, the toilets clog pretty easily with not an excessive amount of TP in them....not that I would know anything about that......

The location is very convenient if you plan to spend a lot of time in the Theatre District or Back Bay. Tons of restaurants and shops just minutes away. I got a super cheap rate from a Living Social deal and feel pretty lucky to have taken advantage of it. Their spring and summer rates are really steep, but I can absolutely see how it would be worth every penny to stay here during nice weather....if only I had the funds. If YOU do, then stay here. Like I said, this place is SWANK.

Recently returned from a wonderful stay at the Revere. Found a nice deal on Jetsetter.com and was really impressed. The hotel was easy to find, kinda nestled between the Theater district and China town. The lobby was clean and spacious and we waited for taxis and buses there while the concierge and door men would call them for us.
Our room was on the 16th floor and had two queen beds. There are hardwood floors and beautiful beds. The room is very chic! My husband took note of the mattress because it was so comfortable he wants to replace ours at home with theirs.
I loved all the soap dispensers in the bathroom. I smelled like minty fruit all weekend.
We stayed during daylight saving time and they hotel left us a little note under our door to remind us. What a nice detail!

My only negatives are there was no mini fridge in the room and the elevator was shakey. But those are minor and I would definitely stay here again even without those changes.

We had an issue with our room keys which were replaced/reprogrammed a total of 4 times during our 3 night stay. At one point, Alan from guest services said new keys would be delivered to us at the pool, which they never were and left us locked out of our room and forced us to go to the lobby cold and wet. The issue ended up being a problem with the door lock itself, and was finally rectified by Claire in a satisfactory manner. She was very courteous and professional, despite me being extremely frustrated at the time. She also sent up a bottle of wine the following evening for the inconvenience, and that was highly appreciated.

On the day of checkout, I called guest services for bell service and valet to bring our car around. Scott from the bell desk was extremely professional and timely, however we then waited downstairs for more than 20 minutes for our car. After this time, Scott went over to valet who was standing around doing nothing and they had not even received the request for our vehicle. Scott went and retrieved our car himself. When it was pulled around, there was debris all over the hood of the car including paper, a cigar butt and unknown material which had fallen onto the car from above. The car needed a full wash and there are minor scratches on the hood.

Aside from these two issues, the stay was otherwise enjoyable and the hotel is modern and very well kept. However, I expect a different level of service when staying a hotel such as this, and in the end I was left highly disappointed.

Came here recently for a conference and was highly pleased with the service we received.  We were located on the 6th floor and while it was a tight space for 300 people, it worked.  Though we blew out their wifi, the staff got it back up and running very quickly. The only problem I had with the location was that the room temperatures swung very widely. Luckily, I had a few different layers and was ok, but some other people were freezing cold.

The food that we were served during the event was delicious. I could have eaten at least 2 more of the chocolate and peanut butter squares!

Thanks for a fun weekend!
