Elevators, noise were a problem; beds comfortable

Posted Jul 21, 2017
Pros: The beds are very comfortable and the location is good. 2 Blocks from Boston Commons. We loved our housekeeper, Binta.
Cons: Better elevator service. I'm not sure that one more elevator will help that much.
Location: Mostly big chain restaurants around it, but it is growing and will become more interesting in time. Newberry St is fun to walk to and the T is close
Our room was fine. Nicely decorated. The elevators were a nightmare. We waited 30 minutes to get our luggage down at checkout because every elevator was full (we were on the 9th floor). Staff said that one more elevator should be working soon. I would recommend asking to stay on a higher level because there was also noise from a club downstairs from our room. If that is fixed, then I think I could recommend it to a friend.

Watch your credit card after you have left!

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Hotel was in good location and enjoyed stay, checked out fine and reception informed nothing on account to pay. 7 days after leaving the hotel and back in the UK a sum of money was taken from our credit card. Having tried to contact the hotel on several occasions and no acknowledgment I am left having to post on line to try and sort the money taken from my credit card. Would not visit the hotel again but only due to this. I would say to all people going to visit the Revere to check your card after you have left as this must be a great money earner for them, now in the UK it is very difficult to resolve.

Nice clean comfortable

Posted Jul 17, 2017
Pros: Very clean and comfortable bed. Large flat screen TV
Cons: Refrigerator in every room.
Location: OK location. 1st time to Boston, big city so kinda far away from a lot of things. If we go again I would rather be more in the center of town.
Our room didn't have a refrigerator which I needed for my Insulin. They had one brought up to the room a soon as I inquired about it. Wish I had known there was a public parking garage across the street instead of paying $50/night at the hotel one. Booked and paid for our reservation thru Expedia. Didn't notice till I got home and looked at my charge card on line that they also charged me for the room at the hotel. Called a couple of days ago to get a refund and had to leave a message and haven't heard back from them yet. Hopefully this will be taken care of soon.

Very close to everything

Easy to walk to many things including the Swan boats, Cheers bar and many restaurants. An easy taxi ride to Fenway. Took about ten minutes to get to stadium and got to see a great game. Room was great.

Cool hotel in middle of theater district.

Posted Jul 17, 2017
Great spot close to Boston Commons. Great restaurants at the North End...try Mare. Also Toro at South Boston is worth the trip.

Nice, but could be better

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: The modern, tasteful appearance and rooms.
Cons: See above. Check-in, elevators and fees.
Location: Convenient
The room was clean, pleasant and tasteful, especially some of the details. The overall hotel is very nice and modern. The location is convenient. However, check-in took about 20-30 minutes of waiting in line as the only two staff attempted to sometimes help a single guest. There should be cross-trained staff to step in when there is a line. Further, since the hotel was busy and one of four elevators was out of service, there was another 15-20 minute line waiting for the elevator to get to the room. Incidentally, the elevator remained unrepaired for our stay. Since busy times and elevator breakdowns can be anticipated, the hotel should consider adding an elevator if possible, perhaps to an outside wall. There was also a significant resort/extra fee, which is an irritation and deception. Such fees are better left part of the full advertised price.

Resort Fee?

Posted Jul 11, 2017
There was good and bad to the Revere. The Concierge service was great and the room was comfortable. The elevators were the worst and it sometimes took 20 minutes to get an elevator. Also, on 3 different occasions, I went to the bar, ordered a drink and was told there wasn't a bartender there. On check out, I was told there was a 20 dollar per day "resort fee" in addition to what I had already paid. I think they are pushing it calling themselves a resort. They don't even have a restaurant in the hotel, and usually don't have a bartender either. I will stay elsewhere on my next visit to Boston. We loved the city.

Nice rooms, lousy elevators

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: The newly renovated rooms.
Cons: The elevator situation
Rooms are nice and comfortable. Large enough for two queen beds and room to move around. The lobby was small but newly renovated. There are only 4 elevators for the entire hotel, staff included. With a convention in the hotel and one elevator down, we waited 15 minutes for an elevator on at least two separate occasions.
