The Verb Hotel

Super cool!!!

For people who like a little history and a lot of coolness, this hotel is the place to be. I am a big fan of vinyl records and have been collecting them for sometime. They let you choose from some stacks of finals and take the records to your room! There is a record player in every room as far as I know :-) There’s a hallway of memorabilia that is fun to look at and they have a steaming hot pool that is open in the middle of the snowy winter! How cool is that? The staff were very inviting and just excited to be there. It always helps if someone likes their job! Can’t say enough about this place I will be coming back for sure. (Oh and for what it’s worth I am not paid to write this lol it’s just that the place is so cool I had to do it)

Copley Square Hotel

Charming Hotel

This hotel is in the middle of everything... shopping, stores, food, etc. It is an old structure, renovated, maintained its charm, but everything is obviously retrofitted. As clean as you hope for. Rooms are small, so upgrade if you can. A little pricey for the size room you're getting, but comfortable and clean.
