The Liberty Hotel is a blend of history, high-style luxury and hometown warmth—the ideal place for a quintessential Boston experience. Located at the foot of Beacon Hill, The Liberty Hotel is steps away from outdoor fun on the Esplanade and posh shopping boutiques along Charles Street. A national historic landmark and architectural gem built in 1851, The Liberty is the imaginative transformation of the storied Charles Street Jail into a 298-room luxury hotel. The hotel offers sweeping views of the city skyline and the Charles River with a variety of luxury guest rooms including a 2,200 square foot Presidential Suite, and nine additional suites. An inspiring story of adaptive reuse, the converted property has been recognized by the prestigious Massachusetts Historical Commission “Preservation Award for Adaptive Reuse,” the “Preservation Achievement Award for Significant Renovation and Restoration” from the Boston Preservation Alliance and an “Award of Excellence” granted by the Urban Land Institute. The Liberty Hotel was also named to Condé Nast Traveler’s “Hot List” and Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” list. The Liberty welcomes each visitor with its rich history, unique architecture, and luxury service to create an unrivaled guest experience.

The Liberty Hotel is hands down the best place to stay in Boston! Incredible room with awesome views of Boston! To top it off there is a great weekend bar scene and Mirko the concierge took care of me every step of the way! Highly recommend!

The Liberty is perfect on many accounts. It is next door to MassGen Hospital. Cross the street and you're at the foot of Beacon Hill and that whole district of fun. The property itself is unique. Rooms are spacious and clean. The lobby is a large atrium cavity that contains a bar, restaurant and tiered opportunities to enjoy music in the evening or just people watch. We are excited to return!

Upon pulling up to the curb, we were treated like royalty. The Liberty is a beautiful place with great history. The room was clean and cleverly furnished to match the theme of hotel. The concierge, Mr. Bissetta was soo very helpful in making our stay unforgettable. He took care of every detail so we could just relax and enjoy ourselves. The food was great and so was the service. We opted to stay in for the evening and we were delighted to hear that the lobby turns into night club after 10 on the weekends. Hotel guests can get seating up on the "Catwalk" during this time and watch the dancing. The bar staff was great as well. Food and drinks were a bit pricey, but that was expected in Boston. If you need somewhere special for a quick getaway, this is the place!

My husband and I have a special place in our heart for the Liberty hotel as we spent our wedding night there years ago. We have stayed many times since that night and always appreciate the ambiance, events, courteous service, and history of the hotel. After this most recent stay however we both agreed we cannot stay here any longer as we had such a horrible night’s sleep on the mattress and with pillows that were basically pancakes. We travel frequently and were surprised at how uncomfortable we were and believe it is because the mattress and linens need to be replaced or upgraded. We actually checked out early in the morning to head back into our own bed after tossing and turning all night which is not how anyone wants to feel after moo a special night away. Also, a small detail but the towels were so rough that we both commented to each other that maybe someone forgot the fabric softener! We are both Marriott members and expected more for our sleeping comfort. Hopefully they can get it resolved so we can stay again instead of just stopping by for a drink next time and having to stay somewhere else.

Thank you for sharing this review. We pride ourselves on offering a luxury experience for our guests; our luxury bedding, pillows and towels are to be of the highest level of comfort for our guests so this feedback is surprising and disheartening to hear. We have passed along your feedback to our management team and hope that you will continue to choose The Liberty for future travels to Boston. Thank you for your detailed feedback.

This is my third time staying at The Liberty. My son attends Boston College and this has been our hotel of choice. I am a Marriott Bonvoy member and use American Express Fine Hotels which this property is included in. I’ve also recommended this hotel to several friends in the past. However, after last night i will not be returning ever again. I was once again in Boston to celebrate my son’s birthday. We had a lively night out then my friend and i returned to the hotel with her son and his friend (my friend’s son goes to Tufts and they have stayed her in the past as well while visiting him at college). On weekends there is a line with a bouncer outside carding people to get into the lobby which essentially turns into a night club. My friend’s son, who was with us, was expecting his two roommates from Tufts to meet us at the hotel before they all left together to go someplace else. The friends stood in this line, not knowing they could just come in (as we were hotel guests, not night club guests!) and they got turned away by the bouncer, Travis, because they presented fake ID’s. They had no idea they could just walk in and come to our room. They assumed they had to wait in the line. Once we found out they weren’t allowed to come into the hotel (our room) my friend and i went down to investigate. Travis actually told us he would call the police if we brought the kids up to our room. We weren’t allowed to have guests into our room or he would call the police. The hotel manager, Lawrence Bormann, did listen to our complaint and did try to make it better. However, there was nothing to be done at that point to make it better. My friend and I will not be staying at this hotel again. And we will also be voicing our complaint to American Express. This was unacceptable and a very bizarre way to run a hotel. But i guess if you are into staying at a place where the night club is more important than the hotel guests stay and happiness, then this is your place.

Thank you for taking the time to share this review. The Liberty Bar is a 21+ establishment. The persons mentioned in your review attempted to enter The Liberty Bar while presenting false identification to our security staff (“fake ID’s”). We take the safety and security of our guests and patrons very seriously, and these underage persons were not allowed entrance. Please contact me directly should you have any questions about this matter. Kind regards, Athena (Director of Rooms)
