Liberty Hotel Boston review

Jump to last reply

Very little has been said on this board about this relatively new hotel --- figured I'd share my observations from a stay last week, since it is really a one-of-a-kind luxury hotel, and a great base for a stay in Boston.

The building:
The property was the old Charles Street Jail, which was shut down in 1990. The main lobby area of the hotel is the center of the old jail, with a 5? story brick atrium, with a lot of the original architectural touches. They've preserved some of the catwalks, and cell openings (in the restaurant), and have a little area with photographs of the building in service as a jail -- some little reminders of its history, amidst what is now just a really beautiful space.

Rooms and service --
Received a glass of champagne at check-in -- was quite a nice way to start the stay after a long day. My room was in the tower (a new building I think, where most of the guest rooms are). Pretty spacious room -- flat panel TV, large bathroom with separate glass shower and soaking tub. Chic but not over the top. The phones had LCD screens, and I was informed at check-in that all domestic US calls are free. (Not a big deal in the cell phone age, but nevertheless much nicer than the insane overpricing at most hotels.)

Fitness center was small, but plenty of towels and free bottled water.

Location --
Extremely well located, at the bottom of Beacon Hill, next to the Charles River basin, and right next to a T stop. Boston Commons is a very easy walk as well. I don't know Boston that well, but can't imagine a much better location for someone who wants to walk and explore.

The lobby area is a loud and crowded bar at night, which is a potential downside for those seeking solitude. The noise, however, did not carry into the Tower where my room was.

Overall, I thought it was a really neat place, which I will seek out on return to Boston. Hope this is helpful to anyone considering a stay.
