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.

The additional fees for internet are silly. this is a luxury hotel, I should not be paying 24 dolllars a day with tax for internet.

Location is great. Love the lobby areas, there’s tons of space and lots of places to sit, get a drink (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and just hang out.
