Massachusetts is not only a great place to live, but it's an even better spot to visit. If you're not lucky enough to call Massachusetts home, it should be on your list of travel destinations.

From picturesque sandy Cape Cod beaches to the iconic Boston skyline to the beautiful lush mountains of the Berkshires, Massachusetts truly offers something for everyone.

The Berkshires are a hub for arts, culture, and natural outdoor adventure. Boston city streets contain some of the country's most historic landmarks, world-class dining, legendary sports teams, and sweet and serene beaches that line the coast of the Cape are enjoyable year-round.

So once you're sold on a visit to Massachusetts, you've got to figure out where to stay. The Boston area has many options for visitors and it all depends on what you're there for. Michelin-starred Italian cuisine can be found in the North End, the Back Bay is home to stunning water views and the spectacular Boston Aquarium and of course, the Fenway neighborhood houses the oldest Major League Baseball park in the country. Although every neighborhood is different, the entire city is pretty easy to access regardless of where you stay

However, if you're looking for one of the most unique stays in the city, this eccentric hotel in the heart of the Fenway neighborhood needs to be on top of your list, especially if you're a music lover.


Positioned right behind historic Fenway Park, The Verb Hotel is a boutique hotel that features dedicated to the love of Rock n' Roll. The Verb has been featured countless times as one of the most unique and "out of the ordinary" hotels in the world. And we can see why.



What started as the Fenway Motor Hotel in the early 1960s has morphed into one of the coolest hotels in the city.


From the beginning, this classic building had all those elements covered. But it’s the bustling backdrop of Fenway, with its cultural pulse, urban charm and sense of community that played a big part in creating and shaping our hotel’s personality. Its cast of unconventional characters, electrifying music scene and indie edge have all helped shape the events and stories that our hotel has played a part in ever since.



When the current owners went to reimagine the Verb they enlisted our very own vibe conservators: long-time local cultural observers and players, Stephen Mindich, publisher of the Boston Phoenix, and David Bieber, WBCN Creative Services Director and the Boston Phoenix/WFNX Director of Special Projects. With real love and attention to detail, they summoned up stories and memories of Fenway’s rich music, media, and arts scenes.



Delving into the treasures of their fabled archives, Mindich and Bieber have curated the authentic events, classic moments, memorable anecdotes and unforgettable occasions that adorn our interiors. Many of our super-rare artifacts and memorabilia you’ll see are priceless, and all remind us that the spirit of Rock N' Roll is alive and well at The Verb.

In addition to traditional guestrooms, The Verb also offers "Backstage Trailers" which guests can rent. The individual stand-alone trailers each have their own personality and decor.


The Verb also houses Hojoko Boston, a rock n' roll tavern honoring the pulse of Japanese nightlife and izakaya by serving sushi, robata grilled yakitori, and street food small plates paired with craft cocktails, premium sake, wine, and beer.
