Hotel Veritas is a 31-room independent upscale hotel located in Harvard Square offering intimate service in a hip Cantabrigian setting. The entire look and feel of the hotel is elegant and current, but with a respectful nod towards our traditional and historic neighborhood. The guest rooms are designed with the fine detailing of an old New England residence and furnishings that are interesting contemporary pieces with rich fabrics and textures.

Hotel Veritas is very nice in terms of its look. There is a fireplace in the lobby and overall it is well appointed. Unfortunately my experience of the service did not match the appearance. There was no heat in my room during my stay and it was very cold. The outside temperature

Stayed in HV while I was visiting my daughter in Cambridge. Extremely convenient, employees were fantastic, lobby is comfortable and warm and it has all the amenities one would need. I recommend HV highly.

Fell in love with this tiny, luxurious hotel the minute I walked in - the Concierge came out to the sidewalk to help me with my bulky luggage! Check-in was efficient and friendly and I was upgraded to a larger room despite making my reservation through one of the travel

Well located hotel, just a short walk from Harvard Square and the red line metro. Rooms are well designed with large windows and nice bathrooms. Bathroom floors are heated which is a nice touch. The rooms are smaller than typical big-name hotels but there is plenty of room

This is a 5 minute walk to Harvard Square T. This is the heart of Harvard square- a tourist. Good breakfast place at Zoe's cafe and also Zennekens. Probably 20 minute subway ride to Boston -red line to park. Or taxis from Harvard Suare.

Thank you for your inquiry! We are about 2.5 miles from Fenway Park, which would be about a 45-55 minute walk depending on your pace. It's definitely do-able, however, it is very easy to take the MBTA, or the "T", to Fenway! Hotel Veritas is located right on the Red Line in Harvard Square. You would take the T inbound and switch at Park Street to the Green Line. Take any Green Train except for the "E" to Fenway. Most people get off at the Kenmore T stop. We can also call a cab for you if interested. Enjoy the game!
