Really cool hotel, which was the Charles Street Jail until 1990, with a modern vibe, very comfortable rooms, some pretty good bars and nice service. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were nice. What we really enjoyed was the proximity to many different areas of town. It's not really Beacon Hill as described but it is close by and...

Checked into the room and it was freezing. The thermostat was hanging by a thread and not operable. The carpet looks like a frat boy party occurred a year ago and no one ever cleaned it up. Wi Fi was not operating. Light bulbs in the bath were out and only one towel. All reported to the hotel and today... More

Fun Hotel with lots of history. We spent 3 days in the hotel and barely left as the snow storm hit ! The bar is really cool and served some great cocktails.. If which we had many as there was not much else to do in a snow storm. The restaurant on the lower floor was the best with a... More

Have stayed here a few times; great service and good hotel food and room service; lively bar in the lobby ( watch out for Boston dog lovers night! Something a bit different) gym is above average and hotel well suited for outdoor running; will certainly be looking out for a good rate on my next Boston trip.

We stayed at the Liberty Hotel as part of a birthday gift. The location was great for walking to the Common or exploring parts of Back Bay. The hotel's history makes staying here very unique and we loved the design of the hotel, especially the lobby area. The iron work and exposed brick gave the hotel some real character and... More

We stayed at the Liberty Hotel, which is part of the Starwood Luxury Collection. The building used to be the old jail, and in the lobby they had photos of the extensive renovations and modifications they had undertaken when trying to change this building from a defunct jail to a modern luxurious hotel. The lobby hotel was like an interior... More

This is the most interesting hotel I have visited or stayed in. The conversion from jail to hotel has been very well thought out and has resulted in a fascinating hotel with luxury. As soon as you walk through the doors at the Liberty, the atmosphere changes your mood to relaxed and stress-free. The check-in champagne and sparkling lemonade for... More

Great location and beautiful property. Architecturally fascinating as it is a converted jail. Just beautiful. Great lobby to have a drink in. We did it every day. Rooms are well done. Lots of stone and high-end fabrics. Very comfortable beds. View from our suite over MIT was wonderful. Room service was a little over-priced, but the quality was high. Service... More

We've stayed at The Liberty twice this year. Once during a winter weekend getaway and then again in July when picking up my daughter from Berklee School of Music.

Booked this room on a whim. What a surprise. Amazing location, beautiful lobby and clever concept. Good service, great beds. Totally worth the extra money of a luxury hotel. Our kids thought the historical information was cool. The restaurants were intriguing though we didn't end up dining there.
