Boston is a city that defines America. Beantown is rich in history and full of legendary moments that defined the country. From the steps of the freedom trail to the momentous halls of education, this is a part of the world that cannot be denied its status of admired appreciation.
There is also now a modern day revolution of burgeoning neighborhoods that are creating a new era full of richness and inspiration. When most travelers think of Fenway they automatically render up images of one of the greatest sports institutions in America. But, Fenway is more than a stadium. The Red Sox built the foundation and the residents of the area created a vibe that is uniquely rich and energetic.
The Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood on the east side of the city has in less than five years become one of the hottest areas around. With fashionable new restaurants, shopping and bars blended with old-school sports lovers and music scenes it is a perfect combination of trendy and homegrown love.
Located in the heart of it is The Verb, which is a hotel that is embracing history while at the same time making waves for a bright future. The mid-century property is much more than just a place to sleep. There is a refreshing hipness here that makes space for both businessman and hipsters to blend happily together.
From the moment you check in there is sense that you are not in for your normal traveling stay. You are in a rock & roll heaven meets a sports fantasy. Perhaps no other combo has ever been stated before now.
Located at 1271 Boylston Street in Boston, the property roots from the Fenway Motor Hotel that first opened its doors in 1959. Now the fully restored hotel is a place of iconic modernist architecture. Developed by Samuels & Associates in partnership with Weiner Ventures and Spot-On Ventures, and designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, true hotel aficionados will truly appreciate the work put in by them.
The property features an outdoor pool and 94 guest rooms at an affordable luxe price point.
A lobby curated by local legend David Bieber, longtime Director of Special Projects for the Phoenix Media Group, makes any visitor feel like they are taking flight on the wings of angels in rock and roll heaven.
Relics that decorate the wall are part historical lesson about the infamous music scene of Boston and part grand reminiscent of an era that stands the test of time.
Upon arrival you can pick a record up at the desk to play on your personal player in your room. Entering your chamber for the night is like taking a psychedelic trip on a magical tour bus. Each space is unique and full of wonderful touches. From the coffee maker to the animal print bathrobe, there is nothing dull about this stay.
A restful night sleeping in can be found with blackout curtains and soundproof windows to block out local stadium noise. But, in all honesty with a vibe like this why would you want to close your eyes even for a moment. Let the Verb Hotel awaken your senses and fill up your mind with titillating, quirky pop culture in every corner. From the cool pool to the divine restaurant Hojoko downstairs, there is plenty to choose from to make your stay fun and memorable.
We may not all be rock music legends, but we can certainly feel like one at The Verb Hotel.
