This is not a cheap hotel. Price wise, it's right up there with the Four Seasons and the Ritzes of the world. Yet, in my opinion, this hotel was definitely not up there in service. 1) true, there is a martini set in the room with very pricey mini bottle of vodka. also true, this means there is no coffee...

This is an outstanding hotel and I highly recommend staying here. Beautifully decorated with the uniqueness of being an old jail. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and there are plenty of excellent food/drink options within the hotel and more within walking distance. Great experience!

This is my wife and I's favorite hotel for a get away weekend. I'll confess that we usually use our Starwood points to pay for our visits, but sometimes we pay with real money and the hotel is worth it. The lobby (up a level) is spectacular. The rooms in the tower are above average for a Boston luxury hotel.... More

Fabulous concept hotel that reminds me you can never go home again. In the mid-90s I used to walk daily by this derelict property fronted by Buzzy's roast beef; even thought it would make a great club or disco someday. And that day has come! Though the prices are as grand as the building's history, the rooms are a bit... More

Found this hotel by chance, loved it and every time I am back in Boston, I make sure I stay here! The hotel is both charming, cozy but also has an ideal business environment. The hotel is outstanding in every which way, including its unique atmosphere. You can't go wrong.

This hotel is absolutely perfect on every level. The decor and finishing are all extremely unique, modern, contemporary and elegant but also young and trendy. The location is perfect and the rooms are big, spacious, very clean and very cool. There are tons of bars and restaurants to choose from and the food, cocktails and wine lists are all amazing....

We loved staying here. The hotel is truly unique as the building is historical and has a lot of charm. Its location right on the Charles River was perfect for my wife, who is a runner. The room was beautiful and we had a view of the Charles, Cambridge and down towards Fenway. We walked all over the city from... More

My wife and I had a one night stay in the Liberty Hotel with some friends this past weekend. Having been there before for dinner and drinks we were intrigued to see what it was like to stay over.

Excellent Starwood hotel option in Boston, if you can find a reasonable rate (which I was able to do for my two nights in January). Highlights included sparkling wine at check-in, free shoe shine service (note that it is an overnight service – at first I requested to have a pair of shoes shined during the day, but that isn't...
