Veritas is a 7 minute walk from Harvard Square in Cambridge. It's a new building, but the hotel designers have succeeded in ensuring that the building fits in with its surroundings.
We stayed in a Petite Queen room, which had a bed, one end-table, a small closet and no real place to store luggage. The ceilings are high, so that while the room was small, I did not find it claustrophobic. We did not mind the small room for a 2 day stay, but we would have wanted a larger room had we been staying longer. The bathroom was lovely and functional.
Little things like doorstops and guards were missing from our room, and perhaps more generally through the hotel. I imagine that the hotel will need some work in a few years.
The service was very good. The amenities (from the espresso/coffee machine and tortas in the lobby) to the complimentary pass to the well-equipped gym cross the street added greatly to the overall experience.
