We had a 2 Queen room booked for 3 nights. Check in was fine. The room is very fancy -- like a boutique hotel. Everything was very clean and tidy. We were a family of 4 on the trip.
The bathroom is very tight and the only way 2 people can fit in there is if one person is in the shower. Towels are large and thick. There are several plugs and a lighted shaving mirror. There are many different shampoos and shower gels, but I didn't use them. I used the hand wash which was fine. The water pressure on the rainshower head was somewhat lacking - it took forever to rinse out my hair.
Because of previous reviews here, I knew what the sleep number bed remote was when I found it, but I can't believe that there are no instructions with it. My husband figured it out through trial and error. There were lots of pillows and they were fine.
The air conditioning unit in our room seemed determined to push me over the edge. I am a light sleeper which is why I asked for a room on a higher floor and facing the back. Well, I got the high floor. I hadn't banked on the air conditioner making "cheep-cheep" sounds at random. i had to turn off the unit at night to sleep. In the morning when I flipped it back on, it didn't make the sound anymore, so I couldn't really call about it and I was crossing my fingers that it was gone. When we returned to the room that evening, same noise. Perhaps I could have been transferred to another room, but I was worried that the A/C in there would be even worse and then I would have had to pack up all our stuff to move which I was not in the mood to do. I know that Boston in general is expensive, but when I pay that much money for a room, the air conditioner should be quiet.
My kids really liked the pool and we had the buffet breakfast as part of our package which was excellent.
We had no trouble with the elevators -- we never waited too long.
Checkout time really bothered me. First, they charged me for parking when I it was included in our package so I had to make a special trip down to the front desk to have it corrected.
Also, Boston was part 2 of a two-part vacation. When we checked out of our previous hotel in another city, we were allowed to take one of the luggage carts to our room to help load up our car. At the Revere, we were not allowed to do so, we could only have one if one of the valet/doormen accompanied us. So we wound up having to schlep everything down in multiple trips. That sort of ended things on low note.
In general, the hotel was well located for the subway and for Boston Common, and there were several kid-friendly restaurants nearby.
Overall it was good, but the little things need fixing - along with the air conditioners!
