In 2012, a forgettable Radisson was reborn as the indie-luxe Revere Hotel, today one of the hippest hotels Boston has to offer. The 356-room space underwent a dramatic transformation under the ownership of Northwood Hospitality, with the decor now dramatically modern. It’s the only hotel in Boston where every room has a private balcony, and with guestrooms starting on the ninth floor, everyone is guaranteed a legitimate skyline view. Personal touches abound as well, beginning with the complimentary champagne at check-in.
The hotel is centrally located to downtown and the Back Bay, catering to most visitors’ shopping and dining desires, while theater enthusiasts will appreciate the close proximity to the city’s most iconic venues. The hotel’s exotic Emerald Lounge attracts a vibrant nightlife crowd; come summer, the seasonal Rooftop at Revere offers luxe cabanas, weekly fashion shows, and one of the most popular social scenes in the city.

Revere sits at the cross section of the Back Bay, Downtown Crossing, and the Theater District, which means much of the city’s best shopping and dining is easily accessible by foot. Architecture fans can wander through the charming Bay Village neighborhood or cross through the Public Garden on the way to Beacon Hill and its iconic townhouses. Restaurants in the immediate area include Ostra and Abby Lane; the South End’s revered dining scene is also within walking distance.
