Boston has a rich history of defining and breaking convention dating back to the American Revolution, which started right here in 1775. This city’s inhabitants are naturally rebellious torch bearers of thought leadership and innovation, with a brazen determination that has led to some of the most significant moments in our history and breakthroughs that have changed the world. We are a city of firsts –from the first public school in America and the first University to establishing the first post office and later, the introduction of email, this city has championed the spread of ideas. We were the first state to abolish slavery, and the first to acknowledge gay marriage. We invented the computer, the internet, and oh yeah, social media. To say we are proud would be an understatement. We built this hotel to celebrate our city’s vibrant past and the innovative spirit that continues to shape the future.

We are steps from the subway, or the “T” as we call it, and offer complimentary Public bicycles (including helmets) if speed is your game.
Nothing beats tequila and tacos, especially when Chef Colton Coburn-Wood’s expertise is involved. Cósmica is a fresh restaurant serving dinner daily and weekend brunch at The Revolution Hotel in Boston’s South End. The joint offers Cal-Mex specialties like Crab Tostadas and Duck Carnitas washed down with an array of revolutionary drink options including boozy slushies to shots of tequila chased with Sangrita – per the tradition.

This building dates back to 1874 when it became one of the first YWCA’s in the country. In 1953, a Mid-Century Modern addition was added to serve as a dormitory for young women who were joining the work force or going to school after WWII. While Mid-Century was a popular style at the time, this building is unique to the South End. Its history and architecture became our inspiration when creating this hotel. We took great care to celebrate its original use as well as to embrace and preserve its original architecture.
We collaborated with world-renowned street artist Tristan Eaton to create an epic tribute to the city of Boston, a 65 ft. masterwork in spray paint that wraps the lobby’s interior and sets the stage for the hotel experience. Tristan also designed custom carpeting for the guest floors that carry the story throughout the hotel. Also in the lobby stands a three-story installation titled the Innovation Tower by Boston-based Individuals Collective, an homage to the city’s lineage in innovation featuring significant inventions from the area.
