From our amazing specials and packages to our incredible service to the gorgeous meeting and event space designed to meet your needs and exceed your expectations, our full-service hotel in Natick, MA offers everything you require for a most enjoyable stay in the greater Boston area.

For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you don't have to go far for great food when you stay at The VERVE Hotel. Our luxurious, Boston area hotel offers creative cuisine at the Pantry restaurant. Our signature restaurant champions the art of American cooking for power breakfasts, social lunches, and business dinners. Reminiscent of a modern-day version of Julia Child’s kitchen, Pantry is a treasure trove of design features that weave culinary “tools of the trade” into the room’s architecture. “Chandeliers” of silverware, walls constructed of rolling pins and muffin tins, and video monitors showing episodes of such iconic cooking shows as Julia Child’s The French Chef and Graham Kerr’s The Galloping Gourmet alongside Rachael Ray’s 30 Minute Meals and Emeril Lagasse’s Emeril Live. The Pantry menu is what truly takes center stage in the Pantry, with a modern and clever take on American comfort food.  Fresh seafood, prime cuts of meat, composed salads, sandwiches, and desserts give a deliberate nod to regional influences of the American cooking scene.

Violet Thorn is the hotel’s chic new lounge serving premium hand-crafted cocktails from seasoned mixologists and a fine selection of small plates and flatbreads from the Violet Thorn kitchen. The stunning interior design of the room blends supple fabrics and textures with artful use of lighting; a water wall, fireplace and media wall accentuate the venue’s vibrant ambiance.
