Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese’s hit TV series Vinyl has brought the groovy era back in the spotlight.
Some hotels are catching on to the trend, but for The Verb Hotel, this has always been a way of life. Located deep in the heart of Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, The Verb’s irreverent attitude is showcased throughout its interiors, where stairway walls carry quirky statements and each guestroom tells a unique story. Rare music and pop-culture memorabilia from Boston’s heritage adorn public spaces – ranging from historic Boston Phoenix covers to photographs of musicians who performed locally or appeared on Boston’s famed alternative music station, WFNX.
The Verb’s latest tribute to Boston’s rich music culture comes in the form of an amenity for returning guests and VIPs. The hotel will have a vinyl record of the guests’ favorite band waiting in their room upon arrival. This record is for guests to keep and each room comes with a record player, so guests can put their gift to good use.
Not a return guest but still wish to use the record player? The Verb has a record library in the hotel’s lobby with over 200 records for any guest to rent, with records ranging from Prince, to ACDC, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan and more.
