The Verb Hotel in Boston, MA


The Verb is where locals and guests alike come to enjoy a big slice of Fenway heritage and reconnect with the rock and roll spirit that's inside us all. So whatever the time of day, drop by, check in and tune out.


Established in 1959.

The story of the Verb Hotel is one that began way back in 1959 when the Fenway Motor Hotel first opened its doors at 1271 Boylston Street. Located deep in the heart of Boston's Fenway neighborhood, the two-story building was designed to 1950s modernist ideals by architects Irving Salsberg and Ralph Leblanc.

Through the decades, the hotel's status as a home town icon kept growing, like a cool local personality who's seen it all and has the characteristic looks to prove it! So it was out of a deep-felt respect for our past, coupled with our wild imagination for what could be, that our dream to breathe new life into the hotel took shape. Our ambition: To return the site to its rightful place as the home of Fenway's legends and good times while injecting it with all the things our modern guests could want. Enter The Verb Hotel.

Someone did a really nice job with the furnishing of the rooms. Very comfortable and retro furniture. Quality LGTV and a typewriter. Get a room overlooking the pool unless you like a sidewalk view. Great restaurant neighborhood or you could run across the street to Bradley's liquors for booze and have a pizza delivered. The front desk will hand deliver it. Nice staff.

Our stay was awesome! We couldn't have asked for a friendlier staff or a better location. This is a must stay if you want to be close to Fenway. Our room was very clean and well stocked. We will be returning again.

The Verb is a highly enjoyable place to stay when visiting Boston. Across the board the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Genuinely nice people who seem to enjoy their work and the guests. The hotel was great-- excellent location next to Fenway and nearby downtown; the rooms and facility are fresh, chic and beautifully attended to; and we enjoyed a thoroughly comfortable and easy visit. There is a fun and easy vibe at the Verb, and this matched with luxurious touches and a great staff makes it a winner.

We found this hotel on the internet and did not know anything about it other than it was close to our daughter's Fenway condo. The décor is amusing and interesting. What really sets this hotel off is of course, the king beds for one but the most important thing is the folks who work there. On the phone, they were courteous and amusing with a bit of humor. Two of the desk people whose names I did remember were Mason and Calvin. Those two plus a rather tall young man with a shaved head, were just the best people you ever could have hired. They have wonderful people skills and I never got through the lobby without a humorous quip or entertaining comment. They were all informative, pleasant, helpful and a delight to chat with. We were room-bound  during the storm at the end of January. We felt quite safe and content with our accommodations. They have done a great job with decorating and some people commented on the ceilings being cracked or the showers getting the floor wet...deal with it and while you are at it, try to get a life! We were there for ten or so days and will return and hopefully your excellent staff will still be there. Everyone was nice and helpful even though I got some comments on my dance I did in the parking lot when I hit the ice patch and hoped that nobody had seen it. Also want to mention the valet parking people who opened the doors for us and helped get us to the airport when the snow impacted the traffic. We will stay there again and you people take care of your staff they are jewels!

Great hotel for city center break. It's location is ideal for sightseeing and touring. Also near restaurants and T station. The room was immaculately clean-an essential for us. The bathroom, beds and towels were just as we like them. Our daughter loved the decor. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will use this hotel again.

This new (as of August 2014) urban hotel is unique and you will either love it or hate it.  The location cannot be beat, right next to Fenway and close to the subway.  It is located in a safe area with lots of stores, museums, and restaurants in the neighborhood.  It also has an interesting modern-music theme decor in the lobby, and the rooms have very modern furnishings and decorations.  Our room had large windows that allowed plenty of light into the room. There is free wifi and the TV and room fridge (no microwave) is great.  There are free morning pastries and coffee (though they are served in the small lobby, there is no breakfast room).  It also is one of the few city hotels with two QUEEN-SIZE beds in a room, which made traveling with two teens bearable.  My rocker daughter loved it, my conservative son did not.  I am positive about it, especially as I got a steep discount on my stay.  

So what's not to like?  Well, the lack of an elevator, which isn't too bad given the hotel only has two floors.  The hotel used to be a Howard Johnsons and the developers purposefully set out to redo the HoJo in an anti-chain mode.  See the article at: bostonglobe.com/business…

However, the decision to keep the HoJo building means that, despite all the fancy remodeling, the hotel has a 1960s motel skeleton it can't shed.  The ceilings are low, the hallways are rabbit-tunnels and dark (some of this is due to the modern lighting choices).  The bathrooms are small, basically big closets with sliding closet doors that do not lock.  There were no bathroom cabinets, though the two small bathroom shelves were functional and may be adequate for most travelers.  There is a walk-in shower with no tub, curtain, or door, just a partial plate of ceiling-to-floor glass with a strange hole cut in it to adjust the water before walking around the glass into the shower.  

My conclusion is that this is a very nice European hotel in America. Everything is small and cute. If you need a very convenient place to stay, and can handle cute and "different", you will like this new hotel.  Being from San Francisco, I am used to "different", so I thought this place was very nice.  If you are looking for lots of room and suburban hotel luxury, this place will feel tiny and doll-house like.

This hotel was perfect for my overnight stay in Boston. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the hotel itself was awesome. If you're looking for a fun, laid back hotel, here it is! The location was great, and in summer it must be awesome to catch a game. I would definitely recommend it.

Room ceiling rough.  Need to cover with material to get rid of cracks and stains.  Room needs a microwave. The small fridge is useless and really does not get cold.
Coffee is great but the rolls stay away from.  Staff is great and responsive.  Best location for Fenway Park.

What a great find!  We were a little skeptical before we got to the hotel because the price was so much lower than other Boston hotels but it turns out we just had an amazing deal!  We couldn't get over how clean the room was.  All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.  The decor in the hotel was awesome and made our stay that much more fun.  The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance to a ton of fun restaurants and bars.  We will definitely be back to the Verb on our next trip to Boston!

The hotel has style, but is lacking substance. This is really a 2-star hotel with a coat of paint. It's missing simple things like a business room or at least a computer/printer for guests to use so you can print your boarding pass and what not. No food service (although they might be building one).

The shower has only half a door, and the half door has a big hole cut into it (I guess so you can stick your hand through and grab stuff off the sink?). It looks unique, but functionally it works like you would expect having half a door on a shower - water gets out and the floor gets all wet.

The beds have a memory foam top that retains heat like crazy. So, you could keep the room cold and still be sweating.

There's no elevator, so have fun with your luggage if you're on the 2nd floor. Btw, it's only 2 floors (just like many 2-star hotels, coincidence?), so if you get a "stadium view" room, expect to see the wall of a stadium and not into a stadium.

Speaking of the stadium, if there is a game going on, you WILL hear the game. I didn't mind that too much since I was half-watching the game on TV anyway, but if I was trying to sleep it would've been super annoying.

Speaking of hearing things, sound definitely carries. I could hear every party that came down the hallway. I also heard the room next door watching porno (I didn't need that!). Fortunately, I had earplugs because my friend and I snore like bears. Knowing how sound carries, I feel bad for my neighbors in that hotel whom I'm sure had to hear the snoring from our room.

I debated adding a star to give it credit for its convenient location to Fenway park. But, I chose not to because, to be honest, I will not stay here again and I cannot in good conscience even mildly recommend anyone reading this review to stay there.

And then there's the customer service.... [WARNING, CUSTOMER SERVICE HORROR STORY INCOMING]

Staff is nice, but obviously inexperienced. On check in, the clerk couldn't find my reservation, which I can easily look up using the website even now. Fortunately, there were other rooms available and she said she would honor my original reservation's rate. Not only was I charged a higher price, the clerk processed the deposit as a debit transaction, meaning my card was charged a deposit. So, now I have a charge for my stay AND an extra $240 charge.

When I called to dispute, another clerk answered and again couldn't find any evidence of my stay. So, she had to wait for another clerk who could look up the charges by credit card. She eventually got back to me to say the deposit would be cleared and the charge for my stay should be partially refunded to match my original reservation.

The refunds aren't showing up yet on my card, but I'll give it a few more days. I have a feeling that *something* won't be right. Their staff has instilled little confidence in being able to do anything other than be polite.

UPDATE: 3 Weeks later, and I still haven't been refunded for the extra charges. Last week, I left a voice mail for a manager. A week later and no response. I guess they don't check their messages.

I would come back here only if I planned to party, not sleep. The building must be originally old despite the revamped look because the venting system is extremely noisy (and makes the floor vibrate too). Don't even dream of sleeping with the heat on, it is even louder. Of course the walls are paper thin, so should your neighbors enjoy themselves, you will hear all the details in high definition. The bathroom is nice though (minus that opening in the glass wall which guarantees water spilling from the shower into the sink area, so don't leave anything next to the sink.). The bed was fine too. And the staff is friendly. I was attracted to this place by the cool vibe, the location and the price. Now I know what matters more to me is having a room where I can sleep without worrying about being in a noisy environment.

By far the best hotel experience I've ever had. We showed up super early in the morning and our check in wasn't till 3pm and they went ahead and got us a room without any issues, our stay there was very comfortable, very hip hotel, right next to Fenway park, like you can almost touch it from your room, and everyone is extremely helpful and nice. We'll definitely be back :)

I stayed at The Verb recently. It certainly was a funky experience. The decor and staff attire will send you right back to the 50s and 60s. They've done a great job combining a vintage feel with modern amenities. They have flat screen TVs, free wifi, and the bedding, etc is all contemporary. Everything was very clean and service was great. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. My only gripe was the cost of valet parking ($39 overnight). Definitely take a look at Standard Parking which is diagonally across the street (on Jersey Street). Their overnight fee was $16.

We had such high hopes walking into this place; the lobby is beautiful, creative, and aesthetically pleasing. However, our stay was less than satisfactory...

LaDana told us on the phone that we could most likely check in early due to a family emergency, but the young white brunette man at the desk didn't even know who she was and said it wasn't at all possible. (For his terrible tone alone, that man should find a career outside of customer service). Later on at five pm (well past their three pm checkin), they didn't even know if our room was ready. Really? Calvin knew more than any other employee working, and that just didn't seem fair.

We booked a pool view room through hotels.com and weren't given one despite pointing it out to Calvin. The verb and hotels.com should work on communicating better. I don't usually book through third parties, and probably won't again, it was just easier at the time. But we didn't press the issue due to exhaustion from staying in the hospital with our father all night. I absolutely would have otherwise.

We enjoyed the clean room and witty decor, hence the one star. However, the room and hotel as a whole has serious kinks to work out. The modern doorless shower leaked all over the floor. I'm talking massive puddle the required several towels. The complimentary coffee tea and pastries in the lobby had no coffee or sugar by 9 am. We were late to check out by an hour; we again were visiting Brigham and women's to see our father. We were told that checkout was at noon and left a little before one. The bleach blond older women with the crusty spray tan made sure to tell me twice, "checkout was at eleven". With a condescending attitude, she then proceeded to tell us that she was just about to charge us a late check out fee since there was no phone number left for us. Really? You couldn't call or knock? Or ASK for our phone number upon checkin? What a see you next tuesday.

Overall, the Verb has an acceptable surface level of customer service, but is really full of passive aggressive betches. Keep Calvin and the sweet white brunette woman and get your ish together guys.

Such an awesome hotel! It was a great location for the price - right in the heart of fenway and walking distance to multiple restaurants and bars. The vibe in the hotel was fun and funky - and the front desk staff was equally fun! Both nights my friends and I came back and they were eager to chat with us and couldn't have been more friendly. Can't wait to go back!

Please note that this review is written from a business frequent traveler perspective.  This hotel tries very hard. But it really feels like a dorm room had a love child with the set of Mad Men. I think it is attempting to feel European. On the bright side they were particularly generous with the room and allowed me to check in very early, and the service was great. I had a king size bed, the room was very spacious and came with a lovely sitting area.

Good quality Iron & Board.
Robes provided
Water provided free of charge
Fridge provided
Lots of table space
Coffee and tea provided along with very sugary snacks in morning

Not so good:
No body lotion provided (only soap, shampoo, conditioner)
No hooks, anywhere except 2 for towels)
No electric outlet in bathroom
Very little noise buffering from a rather social hallway
Weirdly musty and smelly
Shower is quite badly designed, water gets everywhere (also I prefer a bath when I travel)
Noisiest fan/heater I have ever experienced
No restaurant in hotel, which also means no room service

This place really went above and beyond! We stayed here for our trip to Boston for the Red Sox home opener. We were given a very warm welcome upon our arrival by Matt behind the front desk. We arrived before check-in, but our room was ready so he let us get settled in early (SCORE!). The complementary water was also a nice touch. One thing to remember is this hotel used to be a Howard Johnson's. Is it a first class, 5 star hotel with all the bells and whistles? No, if that is what you are looking for you will be disappointed. What it does have is a great atmosphere and retro decor to go along with the rock and roll theme. All the details in the room really made it. From, the old clock radio, to the type writer, to the drum stool at the vanity, it seemed like there was a lot of thought into the decor. The one thing that stood out about our stay was the front desk help. Everyone we met gave us fantastic recommendations of places to eat and things to see. I will definitely be coming back to The Verb. Can't wait to come back during the summer months and enjoy the pool, and outdoor dec!
Thanks for a great week The Verb!

My room has David Bowie posters and a view of the first baseline wall of Fenway. This place is cool.
Everyone at the front desk was really helpful, offered advice and recommendations for meeting locations and dinner. At some boutique hotels, the staff can't be bothered by tourists- this is not the case here. Everyone wanted to make sure I took advantage of all the city has to offer.
The location is great - the corner of Boylston and Yawkey Way, a mile walk to the Prudential Center and about half a mile to the Kenmore T stop.

Great beds and room space.
Great area. Cvs and Starbucks nearby.

Its opening week officially! I got to stay here the first week of operation. I was a little hesitant because it was a bit far from my clients, location-wise but I really enjoyed my stay!

The hotel is very mod looking and there is a vintage feel as soon as you approach the space. A cool vibe at every corner. They also provide guests with complementary bottled water which is a huge plus for me! The restaurant/lounge is not open just yet but Im curious to see what its like when it is. ONE block away from Fenway; you cant beat that if you're seeing a game. Plenty to eat and drink around the area and theres a CVS a few minutes away. Lastly, the pool area is very charming and you get to see a piece of Fenway from it.

SCORE!! oh, and Im a huge Yankee fan!!

This place is Way Kool!  It reminds me of the Hard Rock in Vegas but laid back and chill.  I was checked in by a cheerful fella named Calvin.  He was very pleasant, offered us the complimentary water and also informed us that we could spin some of their vinyl.  There's also a electric guitar in the lobby that guest are permitted to use.  Calvin was also extremely helpful with suggesting restaurant and bar options.

The Verb is located in Fenway Park's back yard!  Also in close proximity to a number of yummy eateries and a short cab ride from most points of interests.  Not to mention the place was super clean and cozy!

I use a lot of towels... and when requested more I didn't get any flack.  As a matter of fact Jordan the housekeeping supervisor dropped them off and confirmed that the room was satisfactory.

This was my maiden voyage to Boston and I'll be back crashing at The Verb.

I recently stayed at The Verb from 2/5-2/8 and could not say enough good things! My wife and I actually came into town to get married at the park near the hotel but the snow banks were taller than us so we had to improvise! The hotel was amazing and let us use a balcony room to have our quick ceremony and take photos throughout the VERY COOL decor in the hotel. Not to mention, we were walking distance to almost everything we wanted to see and a short cab ride to downtown and the Freedom Trail.

Matt at the front desk was absolutely amazing and had a HUGE impact on our good experience. Each day he would tell us about all the great places to eat, drink and sites to see in the city. He even pointed us in the direction to places that had discounts. And ON TOP OF THIS, upon learning we just married, he hand delivered a bottle of champagne to our room, we were so thankful and surprised!

My wife and I are big music buffs and the vibe at The Verb was perfect. I am so excited to see the amazing photos we captured on our big day and could not thank The Verb enough for making it a PERFECT day..even better than we could have ever imagined.

A special thanks to Matt for his undivided attention, I would recommend anyone to stay here on their next visit to Boston!

It's a miniature version of the Hard Rock without the hefty price tag. The service, location and decor are the high points. We requested to check out late and they extended our time by 2 hrs without hesitation- huge plus for that. Scones, muffins, tea and coffee for free downstairs plus ample restaurant and bar options in walking distance made up for the lack of an in-hotel restaurant. Noise level is a bit of an issue due to little insulation from the hallway but that being said we still rested comfortably. All in all, an excellent place to stay if you want to save a bit of money in Boston, stay close to Fenway and like a hip feel.

A special thanks to Scott at the front desk for being friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Hit a high note by staying in The Verb Hotel when you're in the great city of Boston!!  This beautiful boutique hotel, set in the heart of a busy and timeless city, is a fantastic place to stay.

Funky, swanky decor and excellent service make this hotel fun and comfortable. Reminiscent of the classic musicians throughout history, The Verb's theme is a bow to  our nation's musical history. With an antique tour bus parked out front and the old school parking meters along the first few spots, the decor in this hotel is unique and fun. Records, amps, turntables, and concert posters are placed perfectly and with care around the lobby, and the stairwells leading to the rooms have different musical quotes.

The rooms, each of which is cleverly and nicely decorated with posters of musicians as well as of major news stories featured during the legendary music times, are spacious and extremely comfortable.

The Verb is also perfectly located on the block behind the legendary Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Most of the hotel's rooms have a perfect view of the ballpark. Game days would be awesome if you stayed at this hotel--you would hear the cheers from the Green Monster while you sit in your comfortable room or by the chic pool!!

The staff at The Verb is very kind and efficient. They work extremely hard to make your stay easy, comfortable, and worthwhile.

Overall, this hotel sets itself apart from the rest with fantastic touches, including comfortable amenities and hip decor, and a wonderful staff. It's a nice departure from the large box hotels that can be impersonal.

So put on your concert t-shirts and check-in to a radical and high class hotel in Boston. The Verb is where it's happening!!

This is the coolest hotel ever. Hip 70s retro rock and roll. There is a guitar and amp in the lobby that you can play. The staff is ridiculously friendly and it's right next to Fenway Park, and house of blues. And tons of bars and restaurants.
Price was reasonable and parking is free for guests... I think.

I went to Boston on a whim and Yelp'd different hotels to stay in. The Verb attracted me because it's musically oriented, and I am a musician myself, so I decided to try it out. I'm so glad I did! The hotel is decorated really funky, which I love, there is unlimited free bottled water available in the lobby, a Guitar Center next door, and the wait staff was really friendly. The rooms are cute and clean. My only suggestion for the rooms is to have a way to play music! Can't have a music themed hotel without a record player or iPod speakers of some sort. No room service but there is free breaky in the mornings, and they're building a bar. The hotel is centrally located, walking distance to Berkeley and most of the big universities. Overall great experience, I'll definitely be staying here again next time I visit Boston!

Great location and service!!!
Located a block from Fenway and only a few blocks from bars and great restaurants.  
The gentleman at the front desk Calvin was very helpful throughout our stay! The hotel offers complimentary muffins scones and coffee which were delicious.  The hotel has a rock & roll them and is truly unique.  There is a pool at the center of the hotel which was right outside our door, it would be great in the summer.  The bed was very comfortable and although it's not a 5 star hotel we did get a 5 star experience!!!

Loved this hotel! If you are in the city to check out the Red Sox this is the ideal place to stay. It's right next door....literally. This makes it a bit loud but it was so exciting we couldn't wait to get ready and out the door for the game.

The hotel staff were all so welcoming, helpful, and nice! The hotel decor is super cool and the rooms were great, it was perfect for our 2 night stay in Boston. The 2nd night we had a total of 4 guests in our room and it  as was the perfect amount of room. They also have a decent continental breakfast in the morning and they give you complimentary water when ever you want! Just grab from the fridges in the front, no $5 for a tiny hotel water!  I would love to stay here again!

One of the best bargains in Boston. If you are going to a Red Sox game, you will want to stay here. Located next to Fenway. First, valet parking at $39 a night. Reasonable, and convenient. Yes, you could probably find parking a little cheaper at a public lot, but if you love the convenience of a valet service, then this is cheaper than any other hotel.
The check in was smooth and the people working here are young and super nice. Hallways a bit dark and the ceilings are low. This was a former Howard Johnson. Remodeled but the actual space is the same. Very clean and the rooms are nicer than average. I've been at the Marriott and Hyatt properties here in Boston, and I found this room/bath much more comfortable. Nice platform king bed with good pillows and double sheet bedding. Modern couch with table and a streamlined desk and chair. Dressing/make up area and a separate bathroom with a walk in shower. All newly done. Thank god they got rid of the idea of bathtubs in a hotel. No one takes a bath in a hotel tub unless it's the ritz.
Plenty of free bottled water and a complimentary continental breakfast in the morning. Coffee, really fresh pastries, a huge fruit display, and yogurt.
I heard some people complaining that they couldn't figure out the heat/cooling controls in their room. They are not digital controls, they look original to the rooms. If you are under the age of 50, you've probably not seen one of those. Lol. so my only suggestion for improvement  would be to change those units out.

We had a great time at our recent stay. Location is really good, literally steps to Fenway and Commonwealth Ave (lots of good bars and restaurants close by).

The place itself has a mid-century modern rock and roll vibe. Swank but not pretentious. Very comfortable rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Only complaint, and this is minor, is that there's no onsite bar or restaurant. They are building one now though, so on our next visit we look forward to checking that out! They do offer a free continental breakfast in the mornings, which includes very good coffee.

Definitely recommended.

The hotel was quite unique, it reminded me of a scene in Austin Powers, 50's chic.

The people were friendly and helpful while we stayed there. But after we checked out, both my mother and I realized that we left a few things in the room. One star was taken off the review for the mere response I got to the multiple phone calls and lack of trying to help me. I don't think they give a crap about their lasting impression. Honestly, if I were to base it off the first two days-this hotel would've received a five star review. But, I'm truly disappointed with how they handled the aftermath.

The breakfast was delicious-fresh fruit salads, yogurt, bagels, pastries, and superb coffee. Fresh and constantly being restocked.

On our last night, the fire alarm went off at 2 AM. That was annoying, but luckily it was quick.

Absolutely loved this place. It is a totally fun themed hotel. The rooms are immaculate and well appointed with a wonderful and comfortable bed and appointments.

The clerk who checked us in "Molly" was so friendly. She even showed my young daughter the inner workings of the Lobby jukebox which she had never seen.  We had great service starting with the valet parker and then Molly. What a star employee she is!

Super fun place and I will be staying again as we loved it. I'm coming back for the next four years as my daughter will be attending college in Boston. Don't skip this place!
