The Revolution Hotel, a renovated 164-room hotel that formerly operated as the 40 Berkeley Hostel, opens Wednesday in Boston’s South End.
Boston-based real estate firm The Mount Vernon Co. acquired the property in 2014 fo $17.3 million, according to a Suffolk County deed, and launched a renovation. The Mount Vernon Co. is opening the facility in partnership with Provenance Hotels.
The firms brand The Revolution as a “micro-hotel” with room types including an individual room with a shared bathroom located down the hall that’s geared toward single travelers, triple and quad bunk-bed setups with shared bathrooms that are aimed toward those traveling in groups, and “premium king” rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
Tristan Eaton created a mural in the hotel’s lobby. The property also features a co-working space, dubbed “Conspire,” and a 5,000-square-foot restaurant that will open next year.
Kaplan Construction completed the renovation, which was designed by Prellwitz Chilinski Associates.
