BOSTON After a $27 million renovation, the Radisson will reopen this spring as Revere Hotel Boston Common. The independent luxury hotel will have 356 rooms, a nightlife venue called Emerald Lounge, and more than 35,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
Called Theatre1 and Space 57, a movie theater and event space will take over the former Stuart St. Playhouse. Theatre1 will have 225 seats, each with its own workspace and power source. The room will also have ambient lighting and new projection and audiovisual equipment. Its lobby will have a full bar and will serve as a pre-function space.
Opposite Theatre1, Space 57 is a raw 6,700-square-foot room with 25-foot-high ceilings and a built-in 30-foot-by-12-foot screen. The space will accommodate 1,000 guests.
The sixth floor will be broken into a 4,900-square-foot function space and four smaller breakout areas. Inspired by an artist's loft, the floor will have an industrial look with exposed brick walls and fixtures made from metal and reclaimed wood.
BBGM Interiors is handling the interior design. Guest rooms will have neutral color palates with splashes of bright color, suede headboards, over-size desks, and chaise lounges swathed in houndstooth fabric. Each guest room will have a balcony, and artwork with a theater theme. The bathrooms will offer products from local spa and boutique Skoah. On the 24th floor, the Presidential suite is 1,400 square feet.
