Time Out Boston Review
"The sitting area of the Hotel Veritas deserves special mention. With a carefully edited array of local cheese and charcuterie, smart cocktails and a short but power-packed beer and wine list—not to mention beautifully understated furnishings, an outdoor patio and some of the best background music in Cambridge—this is a gem that locals in the know are beginning to discover. The lounge is small but luxurious, perfect for a lingering date; an intimate spot for two next to the infinity fireplace may even turn things up a few degrees."
