Liberty Hotel

Summary of 866 verified reviews


Excellent luxury hotel. Close to Charles River. Awesome vibe. Great location.

Built in 1851, the Charles Street Jail was thought to be one of the best examples of the "Boston Granite Style" of the mid-19th century. Renovated in 2007, the interior design reflects a passionate commitment to authenticity while a more playful attitude defines its day-to-day style.

Within the main building, there are 18 guest rooms, as well as meeting rooms for groups large and small, a business center, a grand ballroom and one of the city's hottest nightlife scenes. Adjacent to a historical gallery of images and tales from the previous 150 years, a 16-story tower houses the fitness center and 280 guest rooms with the latest in luxury linens, amenities and technology, enhanced by expansive views of Boston.

24-hour room service, concierge service, computer and cell phone rental, translation, secretarial services, and currency exchange are available on site at this smoke-free hotel.

Location Summary
The Liberty Hotel houses 280 rooms in a newly-constructed 16-story tower and 18 rooms in the original jail building. Both buildings were part of the multi-million dollar renovation which opened as the hotel in September 2007. The hotel is a footbridge away from the Esplanade, one of Boston's many public parks, and a short walk to Boston Common and Boston Public Garden in the Back Bay. The quaint boutiques of Charles Street are across the street and posh Newbury Street shops are a mere 10 minute stroll from the hotel. The Liberty Hotel is conveniently on the MBTA red line with easy access to all parts of the city, including major historical tours, shopping, college campuses and entertainment venues.
