Though I have not stayed at the Liberty myself, I have a client who stays there often. Mirko, the concierge, is wonderful! He takes care of my client's laundry, he upgrades the room when possible. Once, when my client was not feeling well, Mirko made sure to have cough drops and soup waiting for him. Mirko makes me look good. The Liberty is very fortunate to have him! Thank you, Mirko!

First the bad. When we arrived we were pleasantly informed that our room was automatically upgraded as part of our Fine Hotel and Resorts promotion on our American Express card. Nice! This was great considering we usually had to request this at other hotels and it usually wasn't available. We were upgraded to a room with a city view. Well imagine our disappointment when we arrived at the room to discover double beds instead of the king bed we had reserved. We went to the front desk and a different associate assisted us and quickly changed the room and said we were all set The original associate who assisted us was standing right next to him and probably could have given him a heads-up that this was a promotional upgrade, but she seemed oblivious to the conversation. I asked him it was a similar room to what we had and he said yes. However, when we arrived at the new room it was a view of the medical building across the alleyway. Well at least it had a king bed. Not wanting to go downstairs again, we settled on the downgraded room. Even worse was the very loud construction or shipping/receiving activity going on early the next morning in the alleyway on Sunday and it awoke both of us by 8am, which was not relaxing as we were on a brief getaway from our 3 small children to escape early morning noise. The bathroom sink also had a loud thumping sound when using the hot water. I also suggest they get rid of the mini-bars which are outrageously overpriced. I think it takes away from the luxury theme of the hotel. Otherwise, everything about the hotel is great. Beautiful decor and atmosphere. Breakfast in Clink was very high quality and service was great. The room decor was updated and pleasant, and the bathroom was very otherwise luxurious. We very much enjoyed the dance party in the lobby during after 10pm and the sound did not transmit to the room at all. The lobby is beautiful and we enjoyed taking photos by the illuminated cells and history displays. Checkout was easy and our bill was easy to understand. Would probably stay again. Hopefully our upgrade sticks next time.

As a loyal business Marriott person, I tend to lean towards other hotels while on vacation with the family. As marriott adds more and more and more luxury hotels to their roster I find myself now vacationing with them as well. The Liberty was a very pleasant surprise! I didn't know the history of the hotel till the following morning when I went down to get the complimentary coffee service at 6AM. While they were putting the finishing touches on the service i watched the video loop next to the coffee station explain how it was converted from a prison to hotel. Pretty cool with they accomplished and designed. Will admit when I saw how close it was to Mass General i was expecting more hospital guests, but there seemed to be mostly leisure guests. We arrived by car and the valet was efficient. At check in we were offered a cold glass of sparkling wine, which was a decent brand. Not your usual complimentary hotel give aways stash. The rooms were very nicely appointed and ample size. The elevators were having a bit of an issue, but that was fixed on the second day. can't blame a hotel for a wonky lift as long as they get it serviced quickly. Breakfast menu was ample with the staple Egg's Benedict and pancakes, plus plenty of egg choices. Location is perfect, especially if you are on college tours. BU is right down the street, MIT is walkable and the T can take you to Harvard in one or two stops. Great place for a quick stay or a long weekend.

Not quite sure this will do any good, but here it goes. I agree with the people who said there was rudeness at check-in and a complete lack of acknowledgment of any situation that needed attention. We chose this hotel for its' positive reputation and closeness to Mass Eye and Ear Hospital, as my husband needed eye surgery. Long story short, I fell and hurt my ankle, arm, wrist, and neck. The valet stood there and looked at my 77-year-old husband and me, trying to help me up. When I reported it, the front desk was "so sorry" and said they would have a manager call me. Well, two managers and 3 front desk people, and I am still waiting one week later. We paid a total of $440/night for this room after all the charges were added, plus $29.00 each for breakfast. I am sure there is a better place to stay in Boston.

I had a wonderful staycation at this unique and beautiful property. The staff was very friendly and professional. The concierge, Mirko Bissetta, was very hospitable and made this stay memorable for us as we celebrated our anniversary and my birthday. I recommend ordering the lobster pizza at Scampo. The bartender, Travis, at the lobby bar made the best spicy watermelon margarita (Sandia Picante). I loved the Molton Brown products and the bed was very comfortable. The view from our room was incredible!

I am still shocked by this horrible experience. I did not get the room that I fully paid for in advance. I assumed that it was just a mistake, and so I politely asked if I could move to that room. The front desk was so rude to me that I almost cried. Not only did I not end up getting the room that I paid for, but the mini bar wasn't stocked and they never once answered the phone. I will NEVER stay here again.

Stayed for a Girls Trip and had a wonderful visit. Located so we could walk to the historic areas and seaport or to the Shops on Newberry, places to eat and shop close by. All as well on the banks of the river which made for a nice walk each day. has a modern vibe, good front desk support, and food/drink options. Beautiful and historic it was a destination itself! Rooms are modest but the bathrooms are spacious, especially for groups.

Our stay at the Liberty was fantastic. It was a special weekend, celebrating a birthday and the chief concierge Mirko Bissetta took extra time to speak to me and work with me to make our stay memorable. The hotel staff was able to get us a wonderful room with a gorgeous view, to start. Then went above and beyond taking time to decorate the room with candles and rose petals for our return from sightseeing to make our evening magical. I want to thank Mirko and the entire team for giving us a weekend to remember in your beautifully historic hotel. The hotel was one of a kind, our view across the Charles from the top floor jail side room was the cherry on top. The staff made the experience even more special with how respectful, friendly, and helpful they were. The Liberty will forever be our #1 hotel choice when we return to Boston in the years to come.
