Great design

Located where the old 94-room Howard Johnson’s used to be, this Fenway/Kenmore newcomer exudes the aura of a ‘70s retro motel, back when hard rock clubs ruled the area. Stepping into the Verb is like drinking a martini before noon, driving off to Palm Springs without a care in the world, and walking off into a desert with just a lava lamp. The lobby features original posters from Boston’s indie scene from the 60s to the 80s, which leads into a hallway complete with historic radios, album covers, and other related ephemera. It’s a modish place to have a sleepover. Roof deck suites overlook the courtyard pool, manual working typewriters are on every desk, and a vintage tour bus is parked out front.
