Boston: Discover America’s Walking City This Summer at The Revolution Hotel
June 27, 2022. Boston, MA. Boston is known as America’s Walking City thanks to a compact downtown, an endless list of historic sights, a range of notable architecture, and lush, urban parks. The city is a delight for those who like to explore on foot.
The Revolution Hotel is an ideal base for urban walkers, explorers and anyone who want to enjoy Boston at their own pace. Situated in the heart of Boston’s South End, it’s a haven for those who like to savor the delights of Boston’s history, dining, shopping and urban beauty.
The hotel is strolling distance to Copley Square, where the Boston Public Library – “the palace for the people” designed by Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Meade, and White – faces Trinity Church, a masterpiece of American Romanesque architecture designed by H. H. Richardson.
It’s close to the upscale shops that line Newbury Street and a short walk from the Boston Common, which was America’s first public park when it opened in 1634. Consider a trip on the Swan Boats that ply the water in the adjacent Public Garden, the first public botanical garden in the country when it opened in 1837.
It’s easy to take neighborhood strolls from the doorstep of The Revolution Hotel and explore the brownstone-lined streets of the South End, with its hip, eclectic restaurants and coffee shops. Stroll just a bit further to gaze at 19th century Back Bay mansions and the tree-canopied Commonwealth Avenue.
Plan to walk the Freedom Trail and explore the North End, home to the greatest collection of Italian restaurants in the Northeast. Or spend a morning on the Harborwalk alongside the city’s reinvented waterfront.
Guests of The Revolution are within easy reach of the Charles River Esplanade, the three-mile ribbon of green space alongside the Charles River. Also nearby is legendary Fenway Park and the adjacent Back Bay Fens, part of a unique greenway system called the Emerald Necklace, designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.
Perfect for visiting blockbuster exhibitions at the SoWa Power Station, such as this summer’s Beyond King Tut immersive experience, the hotel is just a short walk to the Back Bay Amtrak Station.
The Revolution Hotel has 177 rooms and has redefined the concept of a stylish yet remarkably affordable boutique property in the city. The visionary property opened in 2018, an art-filled property that’s a celebration of all-things Boston, focused on providing good value. It hosts Kohi Coffee Co., a walk-up coffee shop that originated in Provincetown, MA, as well as Cósmica, a Mexican restaurant that serves dinner and weekend brunch. The hotel also has a community co-working space playfully named Conspire.
The Revolution offers a 24-hour fitness center and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Dogs are welcome for a $25 fee per stay. As befits a hotel in the country’s greatest walking city, The Revolution Hotel is also walking distance from the Back Bay Amtrak station.
