PORTLAND, ORE. (May 20, 2019) – Provenance Hotels is pleased to announce the appointment of Connie Shaheen as General Manager of The Revolution Hotel, the first East Coast endeavor for the Pacific Northwest-based company. Spearheading daily operations in her new role, Shaheen will also guide revenue generation strategies, quality assurance and employee growth and engagement to continue The Revolution Hotel’s path as a trailblazer, setting a new hospitality standard in Boston.
A native Bostonian, Shaheen began her hospitality career at Mandarin Oriental while working on her Bachelor’s degree from Boston University’s School of Hospitality Administration. From there, Shaheen has built an impressive career with Kimpton Hotels, at Marlowe in Cambridge, MA, Taconic in Manchester Village, VT and her most recent role as Assistant General Manager at the Everly in Hollywood, CA, where she was an integral part of the launch team that opened the hotel in 2017.
“Connie’s longstanding experience and deep Boston roots make her the ideal match for The Revolution Hotel,” said Klaudio Simic, Vice President of Operations at Provenance Hotels. “She’s a strategic and versatile leader who will, undoubtedly, be essential in making The Revolution Hotel, a Boston favorite.”
Located at the intersection of Berkeley and Appleton Streets in Boston’s South End, the 177-room hotel is an adaptive reuse of one of the first YWCA’s in the country within a landmarked, mid-century modern building. Drawing inspiration from the city’s rich history of innovators, thought leaders and risk takers that have had a hand in helping to shape the modern world, the hotel boasts interpretive art and clever design cues that speak to the notion of Boston ‘firsts’ – a common thread weaved throughout the guest experience. Inside, find compact-by-design guestrooms and trendsetting features (like bunkbeds), an on-site coffee shop and co-working space, called Conspire, catering to hotel guests and local creatives.
