Boston is set for a new hotel and then some when the 356-room Revere Hotel Boston Common opens today, April 18.
Previously housing the Radisson Hotel and Stuart Street Playhouse, the now-independent property is owned by Northwood Hospitality (New York City) and has been renovated into a lifestyle hotel and multi-use property including two theaters for movies and live entertainment, 35,000 sq ft (3,250 sq m) of meeting space and the introduction of the Emerald Lounge entertainment concept.
BBGM Interiors, also of New York City, designed the hotel. “In such an iconic city, we cannot imagine a better opportunity than designing Revere,” said Amy Jakubowski, partner at BBGM. “This challenge granted us the ability to use our creative license in new ways to bring something refreshing and innovative to the Boston hospitality market.”
A subtle flair for the dramatics was woven into the design, a tribute to the property’s theatre district locale. The guestrooms feature a bed donned in fur with a faux suede headboard, a masculine black and white hounds tooth patterned chaise, and modern case goods made of sycamore and African teak.
Revere Hotel will unveil two new venues, “Theatre 1” and “Space 57” in the space formally inhabited by the Stuart St. Playhouse. “Upon recognizing the tremendous value and unfulfilled potential of the playhouse, we were inspired to produce a modern adaptation of the theatre, returning to its days of being a marquee Boston venue,” said Simon Mais, general manager of Revere Hotel.
