The Revere Hotel Boston Common, the city’s newest luxury boutique hotel, officially launched on April 18th with an invite only launch party and vertical fashion show featuring climbers from Boston Rock Gym walking right down the side of the 24-story hotel (see photos). The models wore MassArt-designed hotel uniforms and Ted Baker London Spring/Summer 2012 looks. After the fashion show, attendees went to the sixth floor space to mingle and have signature cocktails, champagne and hors d’oeuvres.
The Revere Boston wanted to open with a party that would get people talking and create a big buzz around the city. “We wanted to do something big and splashy to open the hotel,” said Simon Mais, General Manager of the Revere Boston Common. “We originally wanted to have the runway down the side of the hotel that faces Stuart Street to break a Guinness world record for height, but decided that safety was more important and had it from the roof to the pool deck instead.” Always a good call.
The Revere celebrated its opening on the 237th year anniversary of Paul Revere’s infamous ride through the streets of Boston at the commencement of the Revolutionary War. Later this month, the property will also debut: an exciting nightlife concept (the Emerald Lounge); a film, presentation, and live entertainment venue (Theatre 1); and, a versatile, multipurpose setting for events (Space 57).
