The Vibe: Creative.
The Area: Located in Boston’s South End, close to Back Bay with its designer boutiques and high-end eateries.
The DNA: Housed in a listed building that dates back to the 1880s, with mid-century modern additions made to one of the first YWCAs in the United States after WWII, Boston’s The Revolution Hotel evokes the rebellious spirit the city has proudly nurtured since the 1775 American Revolution—through the integration of art and installations, Boston-specific events, and an innovative creativity-focussed hotel experience.
Suite-Me-Up: The property houses a variety of rooms that differ in size and layout and, despite the fact that some have bunkbeds and the majority have shared bathrooms, the overall feel is definitely more luxe than hostel; the added bonus of bathrobes and slippers making your stay all the more decadent. Those who want to splash the cash can book one of The Revolution Lofts which feature a cooktop with hot water kettle, and a revved-up pantry experience complete with full-size specialty Boston provisions and honour bar.
