The Verb Hotel is enticingly located at 1271 Boylston Street in Boston's famous Fenway neighborhood. Originally the Fenway Motor Lodge – which opened in 1959 and was one of Boston's first new hotels to be built after World War II – the hotel was eventually rebranded as a Howard Johnson property. In recent years, however, the aging property started to stick out like a fossil among the newer hotels, restaurants, and apartment buildings that are now more indicative of the Fenway district.
While the renovated and rebranded Verb Hotel has plenty of fresh and stylish appeal, it hasn't lost touch with the history of its site and the history of Boston in general. In the words of the hotel's developers, The Verb aims to "meld the best of Boston's past with the vibrant, spirited culture of the modern-day Fenway neighborhood." The resulting style of The Verb has led it to be classified as a boutique hotel, and boutique hotels are very popular these days. Of course, there's the added appeal that comes with the fact that The Verb is literally just steps from Fenway Park.
