Fodor's Review

Since it opened in late 2007, the buzz surrounding the chic Liberty—formerly Boston's Charles Street Jail—was at first deafening, with bankers, tech geeks, foreign playboys, and fashionistas all scrambling to call it their own; a few years later, the hype has thankfully died down, though it's still part retreat, part nightclub. Some still hit the hotel's cheekily named bar and restaurant, Alibi and Clink, and its outstanding Italian-Mediterranean restaurant, Scampo, but the focus is more or less on guests. Rooms are either in the original granite building or an adjacent 16-story modern tower; both sets carry a jailhouse chic aesthetic, albeit one with luxe linens, Wi-Fi, and views of the Charles River. Some Fodorites complain that quarters in the old section reverberate with noise from Alibi well into the night, but others know that the lively environs are just part of the experience. All parties agree that few places in town can rival the hotel's soaring lobby—ringed by several layers of revamped metal catwalks—for a glass of bubbly on plush leather couches.
