Hotel Veritas, Harvard Square
Amenities, amenities, amenities.
In my opinion, amenities are usually what make or break hotel experiences. While on my apartment hunt in Boston this past week, I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Veritas - easily the nicest hotel in the Cambridge area. Hotel Veritas is located in Harvard Square with easy access to all the action.
From the outside, the hotel looks like a Victorian house. It's hard to believe that the beautiful hotel is inside. I remember when I first walked in, I was absolutely smitten by the interior design of the boutique hotel. In such limited space, the architects/designers were able to create a schnazzy and sophisticated ambience which made you feel like you were in a luxury hotel in London. Upon completing the check-in process, the staff member offered me orange or cranberry juice - I thought that was a nice little touch.
The rooms are obviously just as beauteous as the lobby. I love the color scheme which includes shades of grey, pink, purple, & pewter. The room was dressed in the best Hotel Collection linens. The room was equipped with an au courant television and iHome convenient for charging your phone or iPod. However, it was the smallest amenity that was the icing on the cake for me during my stay. The rooms are fully stocked with Etro toiletries. If you are familiar with luxury bath and body products, you know that Etro is good stuff.
Even though my apartment search in Boston was nightmarish, Hotel Veritas was able to make my evenings relaxing with the cozy atmosphere it offers. I wish I had time to check out The Simple Truth lounge - but I'm sure it's equally as lovely as everything else in the hotel. Oh! How could I forget - you also get free access to the gym at Karma Yoga across the street. How convenient. I love staying at hotels and am always critical of amenities and the whole experience. Hotel Veritas excelled in providing the highest level of hospitality. HIGHLY recommend the hotel for anyone looking to stay in Boston. It is small but very sleek and trendy. Thank you to the wonderful staff at Hotel Veritas for making my stay in Boston as pleasant as it could possibly be and for the generous rate. xoxo
