The location is great, the quality of the service superb: being served with beverages while waiting for our check-in which, by the way, took a little time to be done because our room was not ready. Fortunately, it was very large and beautifully decorated. The staff was very friendly and the room service was quick and decent.

My wife and I recently used the Liberty for a rare getaway night. Dakota at the front desk immediately understood that this was a special occasion and very nicely upgraded us; a great first impression. The room was quiet, modern and tasteful with a terrific view. Nicely appointed. We took advantage of a free sedan car ride to dinner at... More

Came to Boston for a family wedding / holiday. Went straight from the airport and got there quickly and easily by taxi. (with my useful directions of "The Liberty Hotel please... the one that used to be a jail!") First impressions - Very good with the large, expansive, ornate lobby area. It has lots of seating (and you would want... More

I've stayed at the Liberty Hotel (using SPG points) twice in the last 8 months and have had pleasant experiences each time. As a category 5 hotel, the rooms themselves aren't overly impressive (think about a standard Sheraton hotel room plus some higher thread-count sheets and some brand-name shampoo), unless you get a city view room. The first trip we... More

Spectacular bird cage lobby, two popular bars, above average restaurants and ultra modern hotel rooms make this one of my favorite hotels. Bicycles are available for guests at no additional charge and parks along the Charles River include a scenic bicycle path right across the street. The main lobby originally housed prison guards who viewed the surrounding cells and prisoners... More

BOSTON. Great city, many wonderful hotels. Not this one. Gaudy lobby, ugly modern restaurant. The room is Holiday Inn. Wi-fi advertised as "free" but useless on the 11th floor. For $15 can upgrade but it's not very good either. The room service (because I was on business, working) was fairly prompt; the food average but expensive. Wine selection very limited... More

BLDOR, Director of Rooms at The Liberty Hotel, responded to this review

I am very sorry to hear that your experience at The Liberty did not meet your taste and expectations. The hotel is award winning in its design, with much of the original architecture preserved from the Charles Street Jail. You are right – Boston is a great city with many great hotels, and we are proud to be one of... More

The rooms were very comfortable. The location was very good, and the service was good too. I really like this hotel because they did a great job of turning a PRISON into a hotel. That's right! That's why it's called The Liberty! Whenever I saw the hotel it put me in a good mood. The concierge was helpful in organizing... More

First off, our overall experience at The Liberty was fantastic. Oscar at the front desk was amazing. From the moment we arrived, he treated us with respect and courtesy. We made a number of requests during our stay and he made sure to exceed our expectation on all of them. The best thing though was the upgrade he gave us.... More

An amazing hotel with great views of the Charles River. My favorite hotel in Boston! Check-in was quick and they offered you a complimentary glass of wine. Service throughout the hotel was great with people ready to help me whenever I need it. Great neighborhood location convenient to walking to a lot of the city as well.

We stayed at the Liberty in July at the end of a 2 week safari in Africa, and after researching many Starwood properties, decided that this one would be the best for the location we wanted. It was the "wow" factor from the moment we arrived. It is beautiful and in a great location. Although we walked everywhere, the subway... More
