Former Radisson Boston opens as independent Revere Hotel Boston Common20 Apr, 2012
BOSTON – The Revere Hotel Boston Common, the city’s newest independent, luxury boutique hotel, officially opened on April 18, the 237-year anniversary of Paul Revere's infamous ride through the streets of Boston at the commencement of the Revolutionary War.
The 325-room property is located in the former Radisson Boston. Under the guidance of new ownership, Northwood Hospitality, the hotel has appointed Simon Mais as GM, Jennifer Kavanagh as director of sales, revenue and marketing and Laura Kinsman as director of events.
Mais, a new hire for Northwood Hospitality, most recently worked for Morgans Hotel Group as the General Manager of HUDSON, an 837-room boutique hotel featuring a full service restaurant and five award-winning bars. Prior to this, Mais worked at a variety of properties for both Interstate Hotels and Resorts and HEI Hotels and Resorts. Throughout his career, Mais has honed his skills in increasing overall revenue and customer loyalty while launching a wide array of successful initiatives for each hotel he has managed.
The opening featured a vertical fashion show to showcase hotel uniforms designed by students at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. This unique partnership marks the college’s first collaboration with a hotel and allowed the students to develop pieces that meet the stylish needs and operational challenges of the property’s doormen, valet, front desk staff, cocktail servers, and other positions at the property.
The hotel will pay tribute to the year that revolutionary event took place by offering a special introductory rate of $177.50, until May 31, 2012. Reservations for the “Revolutionary Rate” must be made by calling the hotel directly, referencing promo code REV775.
Later this month, the property will also debut: an exciting nightlife concept (the Emerald Lounge); a presentation, live entertainment and film venue (Theatre 1); and, a versatile, multipurpose setting for events (Space 57).Topic : Revere Hotel
