We had the pleasure of staying at the Verve Crown Plaza in Natick, recently when we were visting with our family in Boston. The experience was excellent. We came upon the property quite by accident, as all of the city hotels in Boston were completely sold out for the weekend during which we visited. Up to this time, it has been our practice to stay right in town as our family lives right there;however, our son insured us that ,The Verve, was very convenient to the highway and was an easy drive into Boston proper. He was absolutely correct, and the Verve provided everything that we need ,and to which we were accustomed in the Boston proper hotels,without paying to park our car at the hotel, and at a better rate than that which we would have paid in town .Upon arrival,we had a snack at the pantry, and it was large enough to share. We had breakfast there each morning and it was a visually pleasing buffet, and tasty. We even tried the Violet Thorn lounge, after returning back to the property one evening, and the atmosphere was hip and service was excellent.The bartender informed us that she had two types of Savignon Blanc, and provided a taste of each upon our request for this wine.She evn offered us some chips, when we inquired about a light snack, and really did not want a meal.The room was large, modern and very clean. We had the pleasure of a room on the Club floor, which has key access.The hotel boasts a bit of an art deco decor that is very novel, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a Barbie doll display in the ladies' room, and the maid's towel/linen cart was in the shape of a retro speaker/amplifier.There were even little metal toy cars, in a small box, on a coffee table in the lobby. We requested extra towels and they were provided with a smile.There is a small ice cream store /bakery in the lobby;however, it was closed by the time we returned, later in the evening, so we did not have an opportunity to sample the ice cream.
Living in New York, we were hit by Hurricane Sandy and had no heat/hot water/ power in our home; while we were in Boston;therefore, although we had initially planned to return home on Sunday evening, our experience was very positive,at The Verve, so we decided to stay Sunday night, and to drive home on Monday morning. Fortunately, our power returned when we arrived home.We had the pleasure of meeting with Steve Contes, the General Manager, and he was very cordial and professional.The Verve Crown Plaza is truly a hotel with a hip boutique feeling that we truly thought was very special. It is entirely possible, that the Verve may become our "go to" property, when we are visting family in Boston. Thanks for making our stay so very pleasant!
