A couple weeks ago the girls and I hopped on the train and headed to Boston for the opening of the new Revere Hotel. We spent three days exploring the city, eating our bodyweight in lobster and getting to know the features of the revamped hotel. Paul Revere himself even came back from the dead to attend the opening party and talk about how he inspired the new space. It was rather impressive.
The entire hotel just underwent $28 million in renovations – new guest rooms (great beds), new lobby, pool space and rooftop lounge. The rooftop was my favourite. I’m a sucker for a view. And anywhere I can perch myself and sip cocktails in the sun.
They’ve also redone the menu, which I sampled most of from my bed – ’cause how else do you eat room service? The lobster roll was ah-mazing.
Outside of the hotel we spent a morning cruising the shops along Newbury St. and had lunch at the cutest little seafood restaurant called Saltie Girl. I actually had no idea Boston was known for seafood?! Am I living under a rock? Either way this restaurant was fantastic. If I could Postmates myself their Ahi Tuna Poke it would be on repeat.
Then we headed to Harvard, where we hit up the campus bar, bought ourselves a t-shirt and strolled around like the biggest tourists ever.
On our last night we ate at Eataly (always good) and then went to a cocktail bar called Drink. The concept of the bar is that you tell their ‘world famous’ bartenders what you’re in the mood for and they whip up something unique and creative. I ordered a Vodka soda with “lots of fresh lime”.
