The hotel was great, very clean and very friendly staff! Such a unique look and experience compared to your average hotel. Didn't mind the shared bathrooms, they were well kept and had everything you need. My only issue was that there was no on-site parking and all the nearest parking garages charge a fortune (and no in-and-out privileges). If you don't have a car and don't need to worry about parking then I highly recommend this hotel! Otherwise I'd avoid downtown Boston if possible and rent something on the outskirts where free parking exists.

Property's Favourite Review
Great relation quality/price...another concept of a mixed between hotel and a hostel. Personal educated and helpful. Very clean. We had a 4 bedroom (the space was not big but the size and quality of the beds very good) with shared bathroom, which at the beginning we though it will be uncomfortable but it was actually good, we didn't have to wait for anyone to use the bathroom or shower. These were always clean, plenty of towels to use. On the basement there was lots of space to have breakfast or something to eat as well as to work. They allow you to keep your food on the fridge and let you plates and glasses to eat. The surroundings were nice, close to downtown, plenty of places to eat. Great experience all over!

We had an 8 night stay in Boston and wanted a place with a kitchen, close to the location of a conference one of us was attending. We stayed in the suite which is located in the separate building a few yards from the main hotel. You never know what you are going to get when you book a "suite", and you never know what you are going to get when you book anything at an independent hotel not part of a chain. In this case, the hotel is an actual proper hotel, and the suite is an actual proper suite. The photos on the hotel website do not do the size of the suite justice. There is a full bedroom with a door and a full living room, with a small kitchen quite separate from the living room. You need to ask if you want towels, toiletries, and any manner of room cleaning. The hotel may want to tell people this more clearly and/or consistently at check-in. When you ask, service is provided promptly. This is an area in which the hotel industry has changed since 2020 and since there is no longer a uniform expectation of what amount of housekeeping is done, it should be made clear at each property. There is quite a bit of mechanical (HVAC? elevator?) noise in this particular room at all times. This is to be expected given that the hotel is a retrofit and not purpose-built. Very sensitive sleepers could be disturbed.

What a great concept! What a great experience! Loved the working space in the basement. The sheets and towels were very clean. This a great place for single or couple… would not recommend this hotel for families with kids as the rooms, in room bathrooms are too small to accommodate kids.

Hi yx26ais8p4, Reading that you love our revolutionary take on the classic hotel experience means the world to us! And just so you know, we’re proud to welcome families here at The Revolution. We find that our quad-style rooms tend to be especially popular among groups of four. Until we see you again, take care! Sincerely, Joe Cornejo Rooms Division Manager

Super clean, super comfy, and the staff was incredible. We rented a 4 bunk down the hall room and we were shocked by how comfy the beds were, how much room we had to stretch out and how spotless the bathrooms were. There wasn’t a speck of dust anywhere we went. The complimentary water carafes and ice fridge were a super nice touch.

This hotel never disappoints. We like everything about it. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean, bedding is white, crispy clean and fresh! Beds and pillows are super comfortable. They have amazing features such as a big basement for studies, working and relaxing, a coffee shop and a cozy fireplace. The design of the hotel is very unique. When we visit Boston we always stay in this hotel. The hotel personel is very nice and friendly. They make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.

The room was miserable. It felt like a storage room with dusty pipes running around the stained walls. The ceiling was chipping. Apart from the immediate use surfaces, everything else was cover with dust, lint, and grime accumulated for years (the floor corners, the pipes, the window screens, etc). It was very poorly equipped which made the stay in this tiny room for 2 people even more difficult. The heat was supposed to come from the AC but most of the time only cool air was coming out. The AC unit was clogged with dust and lint, obviously never cleaned, and without proper maintenance. We stayed mid-January but there was no comforter provided and when we asked for one, they brought us a twin-size one for 2 people! We expressed our disappointment on our checkout and got a $50 refund but overall, the room was of the quality of a cheap dirty motel one at the price of a proper hotel.

Hello hariskaminari, Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Our cleaning teams work hard to turn over rooms and their efforts are typically lauded in guest feedback which makes your experience both rare and worthy of internal discussion. Please accept our apologies and know to expect better should you join us again. If you do us the privilege of settling in someday soon, we’d recommend our more spacious “Revolution Lofts” which will better align with your space preferences. We wish you the very best in your travels and welcome your contact if you have anything further you’d like to discuss. Take care! Sincerely, Joe Cornejo Rooms Division Manager

Lobby is really cool and funky. Rooms are too small. Staff is rude and not well trained. Walls are paper thin. No outside alcohol policy - what even is that? Overall this is the worst hotel I've stayed in in Boston - there are much better options out there at the same price point.

Hello Experience164355, Thank you for choosing our home here in the heart of Boston’s South End. While we’re glad you loved our overall vibe, we’re sorry you felt our hospitality and accommodations didn’t measure up. We welcome any specific notes on how we fell short on the service front as shining to that end is always an aim of ours. To our rooms, we’re proud to offer a variety of accommodation styles, many of which are larger than what you’ll find at a more traditional hotel. Consider exploring our “Revolution Lofts” the next time you’re in town which we think you’ll love. Finally, our alcohol policies are in place to support government ordinances, hence our limited flexibility. Our team, of course, looks forward to hopefully being able to better impress you in the months ahead. Sincerely, Joe Cornejo Rooms Division Manager

The establishment is very clean, no mild or cracks, doesn’t smell funny. Everybody so welcoming, rooms nice and cozy. Sights all next door, 15 mins walk away. Restaurants and bars near, still a nice and silent neighbourhood.

Staying at the Revolution Lofts is like having a pied-a-terre right in Boston’s South End. Super-comfortable and close to everything, it’s perfect. The friendly staff always makes me feel welcome, and the kitchenette is equipped for a simple meal in the event that going out to one of the many excellent restaurants at the doorstep seems like too much effort. I love seeing the lights of the Prudential Center at night, and enjoying all the advantages of city life.
