Dating back to 1851, this historic property has transformed itself from Charles Street Jail to now a posh AAA 4-Diamond hotel in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood. The Liberty is a blend of history, high-style luxury and hometown warmth -- the ideal place for a quintessential Boston experience. 

Guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and flat-screen televisions. Bathrooms include Molton Brown products. Public spaces are linked by catwalks, and the hotel's bars and restaurants bear playful big-house puns as names -- Alibi, Clink, the Yard, Catwalk and Scampo. 

While some hotels are content to provide a bed and a roof, The Liberty provides an experience. The hotel’s Liberty Affairs series offers a variety of unique events throughout the week, including: Major Mondays (live blues music); Gallery Night Tuesdays art exhibitions; Whole Note Wednesdays (live jazz music); Saturday yoga classes taught by instructors from Equinox; and Fashionably LATE -- a Thursday night fashion show featuring local Boston designers.

Within a 15-minute walk of the hotel, guests can explore Boston Common and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

My husband and I stayed at the Liberty overnight. The hotel was alive from the moment you pulled up. Valet was great, guest services great, champagne at check in. Comfortable and relaxed seating and bar in lobby. Great restaurants off lobby. Festive, yet tasteful, elegant atmosphere. Love that you can also bring fido, but we boarded ours at the Red Dog in Boston which we also highly recommend. We noticed guests checking in with their well behaved pups. Room exceeded expectations. Great view, very comfortable bedding, gorgeous bathroom, separate soaking tub and shower, guest robes, ironing board, hair dryer. Really clean. Prison theme throughout the hotel was also very tasteful preserving the character of the original jail. We were guests when the temp was below zero so we used taxi service to go downtown to the Oyster House (oldest and best clam chowder ever) and a few Irish Bars. Highly recommend staying at the Liberty!! Debbie/Rhinebeck NY

It was a very cold day/night in Boston -4 degrees. We sent my daughter in with a friend to check in before we got there (she was turning 21 in a matter of hours) and they would not let her check in. They banned her and friend from the lobby and only after a very frustrating call with management did they allow her to check in to the room. They would not take my credit card (which I gave to her to checkin with since the reservation was made by me and with that specific card) even though the room was already paid for by me when making the reservation. The charged her card and put a $400 hold on it which is tough for a 21 year old student. They were very inflexible and in my opinion treated my daughter and friend poorly.

Our room had a magnificent view of the city skyline; the ambience of the lobby was relaxing despite many people coming and going. Dinner at Scampo was amazing!

Upon checkout, there was some confusion in that my pre-payment through Travelzoo did not post properly. Julie was accommodating and just had me forward a copy of my credit card statement with payment to her to process the invoice properly.
