"The sleek, pleasantly quirky, 31-room hotel achieves what all boutique hotels strive for: a place where small feels interesting and intimate, not limiting or lacking." Boston Globe

Benson Willis, General Manager of the 31-room Hotel Veritas, says, “Our concierges strive each day to provide an intimate level of service to our guests. ‘Personalized service’ isn’t just a marketing tagline for us - it’s what we do every day and our small size allows us to take greater care of our guests.”

Guests also appreciate the Anichini linens and Palais Jamais by Etro bath amenities, and our location just steps from Harvard University.

As for the small size of the guest rooms, Willis says, “As we read the early reviews on TripAdvisor and heard from our guests, we knew that we needed to do more to set the right expectation for potential guests. We created the ‘Petite Queen’ category for our smallest rooms and rewrote parts of the website. We appreciate when guests mention the small rooms in their online reviews, as it reiterates that issue.”
