So impressed with the service and atmosphere of this perfectly located hotel in Beacon Hill. The T is across the street. Complimentary kayaking in the Charles River across the street. Champagne upon check-in. But most memorable will be the decor.....previously a prison, the lobby has been re-created into a brilliant space with original jail bars. The room has an area...

Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Nothing like a complete do-over of the former Suffolk County Jail. Incredibly creative ! Rooms are quite spacious. Common areas, especially the atrium eye-catching. Staff attentive but don't expect butt-kissing in Boston ! Hard to speak to "value" as pricing all over the place nowadays. We booked last minute and paid around $220 all in which we were okay with...

Great location. Top notch rooms including linens. Delicious food in the restaurants as well as drinks in the bar. Within walking distance of Beacon Hill and charming neighboring environs. Truly a value for the dollar, and they let you leave come morning!

The rooms at the Liberty are great and actually the best I've stayed in within the U.S. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. My only reservation was the noise. At weekends the bar and nightclub make the hotel a city drinking destination and so it became very loud. Which is great for a night out but I like...

Situated right on the red line, near MGH. The hotel lobby is an atrium converted from the old city jail into a super-swanky space with music, lots of balconies. Rooms are very nice, larger than usual with tub and shower, and the jail motif carries over into the decor in a cool way. All in all, a great deal in...

I had a difficult one night stay at The Liberty on for March 10-11 after finishing a week of work travel on the East Coast.

The Liberty is an amazing and very unique hotel experience. There is so much history there and everything is remodeled and redone in a very classy and unique way that highlights the interesting history of the building. At night the lobby bar becomes a fun and popular hangout spot. Drink and food prices are high, but that's to be expected...

The prison theme was fun. The glass of sparkling at check-in was a nice surprise. The room was fine - nice view of the river. Jill, one of the concierges, was very helpful. Now for the downside: as another reviewer wrote, the lobby was a loud, crowded mess on Saturday night. We were hoping to have an after dinner drink...
