BOSTON (August 14, 2018) – Change is coming to Boston. The Mount Vernon Company is teaming with Provenance Hotels to open The Revolution Hotel at 40 Berkeley Street. Inspired by the rebellious attitude and innovative spirit of Boston, this 164-room property is set to become a nexus of the city’s South End, offering a sanctuary for the community’s creative set.

An adaptive reuse of one of the first YWCA’s in America, The Revolution Hotel is being developed within a mid-century modern building at the intersection of Berkley and Appleton Streets. The hotel’s design and attitude are informed by the building’s original use as a place dedicated to empowerment through shelter and education. Hotel offerings, experiences, art, installations and activations will reflect Boston’s rich history of notable innovations, rebellious individuals and revolutionary events in areas ranging from human rights to science, business, culture and technology.

“We will be providing an experience for those visiting Boston that will tell a story that weaves together not only the city’s past, but also our present and future as a force pushing the nation and the world forward,” says Bruce A. Percelay, Chairman and Founder of the Mount Vernon Company.

Morgan Pierson, Senior Vice President & Project Manager for the Mount Vernon Company adds, “The Revolution Hotel will immerse guests in the Boston experience with an approach unlike anything in this city. And, to operate it, we have partnered with a truly innovative independent operator in Provenance Hotels.”

“Our passion is creating authentic, truly inspired hotels and our independent streak is one of our defining characteristics so, this project is a perfect fit for us,” said Bashar Wali, President of Provenance Hotels.” He went on to say, “There is no city in the world like Boston and no people so rightly proud of their community. We look forward to helping to bring The Revolution Hotel to life to celebrate that spirit.”

Catering to creative, adventurous, out-of-the-box travelers, The Revolution Hotel will feature several room types: Studio Suites for business travelers; Triple and Quad rooms with shared private bathrooms for groups of friends; and Premium King accommodations with en-suite bathrooms for couples, among others. A welcoming two-story lobby and garden level work space will serve as areas for guests and locals to gather and exchange ideas. An impressive 5,000 square foot food & beverage operation with expansive outdoor dining is destined to become a destination in and of itself.

In keeping with its mission to upend the expected, The Revolution Hotel will offer a creative and compelling hospitality experience at one of the most accessible price-points in Boston.
