We stopped here on the way back home from Eastern Canada, and were instantly impressed with the hotel. The fact that it was a former prison really peaked our interest. The inside was tastefully decorated for the Christmas season, with elements of the former prison still present. The staff was quite helpful and friendly. Even our dog enjoyed the visit... More

I am writing to let you know how much I appreciated the outstanding customer service that the staff of The Liberty Hotel Boston provided throughout our stay. The employees I interacted with, especially Ms. Nikki Jenner (Service Agent), Mirko Bisseta (Concierge) and Ms. Stephanie Hardy (Service Agent) were genuinely interested in helping us meet our needs. They were always pleasant... More

My husband and teen daughter were more interested in this renovated prison than I was. Frankly, the idea of a renovated prison as a hotel strikes me as bizarre. This one is placed next to a hospital on one side and a busy road on the other. The renovation is not done with the best finishes in the rooms. In... More

Highly recommend checking out this hotel if you are in Boston, the history behind the jail is very cool and they've redone the building to look very trendy. We stayed in one of the jail cell rooms, well I wouldn't recommend if you are a light sleeper we loved it and had a really fun time people watching from our... More

The so called "luxury" Liberty Hotel provided me with the worst experience in particular interacting with the front desk manager. It is supposed to be an hotel with something special - they charge for it - in particular coffee to the room, but the front desk manager acted as careless motel night concierge. When sharing my complaint and explaining my... More

We stayed at the Liberty due to apartment renovations and I can see why it's a luxury hotel. We were greeted with two glasses of prosecco when checking in and the lobby was cool and comfortable. There were people hanging out and having a great time all throughout the lobby. What's nice is that the historic section, where all of... More

We only were able to stay one night but can't wait to go back. The service is excellent and the rooms are beautiful. We ate dinner and breakfast at Clink (which is inside the hotel) and greatly enjoyed both meals. The location is great with easy access to the Charles River for those of us who like having a convenient... More

This seems to be THE place to hang out in Boston these days.. Thursday/Friday evenings the lobby turns into a kind of dancehall... very loud but cool music and total hipsters abound at the bar. I presume the lower floor rooms hear that sound. Food is great. Staff is super friendly. We went there for a business event with a... More

They have several restaurants in the hotel which are all very nice but are very expensive. The room was very nice, the bathroom was very nice... More

Stayed at the Liberty while on a Spring Break road trip. The hotel is easy to drive to and great to walk downtown Boston from, convienient to the Freedom Trail. Decor is modern, upscale. Staff was uniformly helpful, professional, and cheerful.
