The Liberty Hotel

Unique historic hotel in central Boston

The Liberty is one of Boston’s premier hotels, situated in a prime central spot just a few minutes from the Boston Common and offering direct access to the Charles River esplanade. Housed in what was once the city’s most iconic jail and dating from the 1850’s, this hotel has maintained the grandeur of the original building after undergoing a $150 million transformation, whilst adding contemporary touches and modern amenities. Enter through the staggering 90-foot high central rotunda and soak up the distinctively historic atmosphere by dining in CLINK – a modern American restaurant that incorporates vestiges of the original jail cells and an open kitchen to create an exciting dining experience. There are also several other bars and restaurants and a modern fitness centre for your convenience. Best of all, guests can enjoy every modern convenience in the new tower block rooms, constructed alongside the atmospheric prison building.

Over the top service

Boutique interesting and very nice Liberty hotel. Front desk always remembers returning guests. Greets newcomers and oldtimers alike. With a glass of champagne for all. Jazz nights on Monday and Wednesday till 9 are a plus. Very comfortable.

Shiny but smelly!!!

Charlotte, NC

This hotel is super cool but it has an outrageous problem with sewer gas. The sewer gas hits you upon entry, follows you up the escalator and envelopes the main lobby like the pastry in a Boston cannoli around the cream. Our room was odor free. I hope this is a temporary problem for an otherwise remarkable hotel. Many guests were commenting over the odor. Several people left the Friday night lobby bar festivities because of the lobby odor. I would tell anyone to stay there, but first send an email confirming the sewer gas problem is fixed. I was mostly surprised management hadn’t taken steps to mask the odor with candles and such. So many Marriott’s pump in scents that they should know how to cover sewer gas.
