OVERVIEW of The Liberty Hotel
The Liberty Hotel, is ideally located in my favorite part of town, Beacon Hill, just steps from the cafes and boutiques of Charles Street.
The 298 room hotel is the former Charles Street Jail and carries the jail theme throughout the hotel from the tiered floor lobby to the restaurant, Clink with its jail cell booths, the bar, Alibi and room service, Solitary. Whimsical as that seems, this is a serious hotel with excellent service (a bartender went and printed out directions for my next day meeting), delightful rooms and restaurants and bars with major buzz.
THE ROOMS at The Liberty Hotel
My large corner room was a delight with floor to ceiling windows ¾ of the way around the room, affording views of the city and the bustling crowds below. Decorated in a soft beige palette with dark wood furniture, there were orchids strategically placed throughout the room and bath which was a charming touch. A plump featherbed with luxury linens centered the room and two reading chairs and lamp were off to the side. A large desk was perfect for working. A flat screen TV and a private bar rounded out the room amenities. The oversized bath had a deep soaking tub and separate glass shower, Molton Brown toiletries, huge towels and silky robes. Most rooms are in the 400-800 sq. foot range which is unusually big for a city hotel.
DINING at The Liberty Hotel
The Liberty lobby bar has lots of wonderful wines and champagnes by the glass and is a gathering place from cocktail hour through the evening. Clink serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and features North Atlantic seafood, seasonal New England fare, heirloom produce and artisanal heritage meats. Alibi is set in the old “drunk tank” and is a hot late night spot. Renowned Boston chef Lidia Shire has created an Italian bistro, Scampo on the ground floor which was packed the night I was there.
SERVICE at The Liberty Hotel
My car was met instantly upon arrival, bags taken and car checked. An escalator took me to the front desk where I was offered a glass of champagne as check-in was completed.
Room service is open 24 hours as is the Business Center and Fitness Center. There is evening turndown, a car service to various parts of town and back from 7-9am and 5-7pm. The staff will even check your bags for the airport for a $25 fee.
Love this hotel.

WHAT OTHERS SAY About The Liberty Hotel
AAA Four Diamond Award
“This “posh” and “very hip” luxury hotel, housed in the renovated Charles Street Jail, offers “top-of-the-line” service and excites guests with the “fantastic concept” of its “unique interior” and “funky” style; the “beautiful” and “quiet” rooms (most in a modern, 16-story tower) feature floor-to-ceiling windows, and serve as a retreat from the “very lively” scene in the downstairs rotunda, where the “vibrant nightlife” includes a “dramatic lobby” that doubles as a bar, prison-themed Alibi lounge (filled with celebrity mug shots), and chef Lydia Shire’s Scampo restaurant.” ZAGAT
