Located at the foot of Beacon Hill, The Liberty Hotel is steps away from outdoor fun on the Esplanade, posh shopping boutiques along Charles Street, one of the world’s best medical complexes, the financial district, and Cambridge technology centers. The Liberty Hotel is a blend of history, high-style luxury, and hometown warmth—the ideal place for a quintessential Boston experience. A national historical 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.

I worked with Archee & Valeria for one of the Fashionably Late shows that the Liberty Hotel throws every Thursday. It is such a fun event with music, 12 different outfits, and just fun vibes. There is no entry cost, so you can spend more on your drinks 🥂🍷🍸I loooooveve that they work with local businesses. I can't wait to go back!

Hi ! My name is Mona Souza. I had the pleasure of staying at the Liberty Hotel the month of February while my husband was in the hospital. I wasn’t worried about staying alone as the wonderful staff took great strides to take care of me. My room was always clean with fresh fruit or dinner waiting for me. I stayed 8 hours a day at the hospital helping the nurses. The Clink restaurant staff were wonderful to me , and they made daily muffins for me to take to nurses . 16 muffins a day to be exact. I always had a ride to hospital as Ali made sure I got there on time everyday . Chris , Brian , and CJ always helped me with my bags going to and coming from hospital. I’m very grateful for that help as I was always tired. I’ve stayed in many hotels including the Harbor View hotel on Martha’s Vineyard, but it does not and never will stand up to the Liberty Hotel! From checking in , eating meals all the staff were very professional and top notch each and every day . Mt husband and I will be returning in May and August, and I cannot wait to get back to my home away from home.

We really enjoyed our well appointed room, staff was excellent, especially Youssef in the valet, and the location is prime. Our stay really exceeded our expectations in every aspect - but beware of the hefty parking fee. We paid $71 per day..

For $631, one night in a so-called "Grand Deluxe Room", in a "luxury" hotel, featuring old worn furniture in dimly-lit 15x15 space. Only one worn leather easy chair and a desk chair. No soap in the bathroom. No answer at the Front Desk after 20 rings. No safety grab bar in the shower. A foam-material mattress with three flimsy foam pillows. Room temperature either arctic cold or summertime - no in between. In the last of two final insults, a condition on the bill that said Marriott honors only its own records in terms of what a guest has paid and has been charged, as if to say, "your bill isn't paid unless we say it's paid, and guest records proving otherwise are irrelevant." Finally, at check-out, I was not asked the time-honored check-out question: "Did you enjoy your stay". Without question, the worst hotel value in 50 years of travel to the four corners of the world. The one and only positive experience was a bowl of fresh fruit at the complimentary breakfast, which was delicious.

Stayed at the liberty hotel a few weeks ago, and enjoyed everything about it. Cj was the best doorman, gave advice and was helpful with what to do around Boston and knew all of the best bars in the area. Great atmosphere, great people, and great time!

The staff was extremely friendly, and we were greeted with a glass of champagne upon arrival. The room was nice and comfortable. The only issue was that the usb chargers that were in the wall did not work. We ate at the bar the first night, the drinks and food were excellent. We also had breakfast, which was very expensive, but the portions were large. It was way too much food for me. The location was perfect for walking around Beacon Hill and to get to TD Garden for a concert. I would stay again.

I stayed here for 1 night while on business in town. Check-in was very quick as I had used the mobile check-in, and I was given room 811. The room itself was small but efficient with nice furniture. The bathroom was small and the shower was tight although it did feature Molton Brown products. While I understand the novelty of converting a former prison into a hotel, the property is simply dark inside. For example, my room, which had a window and view of the Charles was still incredibly dark. I think its ok for 1 night, but I would rather choose an alternative hotel.

Austin took one look at my travel worn face, and immediately began CPR....in the form of a warm and sincere welcome to this wonderful hotel. Rush hour traffic dissolved into a lavender ether, only to be replaced by the warm fuzziness of superior hospitality. Why was I here? All semblance of work related responsibilities faded into the urge to just hang out in the hotel because nothing out THERE was likely to be as nice as the atmosphere Austin created. Great room, clean, quiet and well appointed....and from the 100 day a year on the road traveler....a veritable Mt. Everest achievement in comfortable stays. Thank you Austin and the Liberty Hotel Team

The lobby is stunning and this hotel has a cool vibe being a former prison. The staff we encountered were all courteous and helpful. The lobby bar has a cool vibe. There were a few reasons why we struggled giving a 4 or 5 star. 1/Check-in-they gave us a room that was occupied by someone else. We travel a good bit and I have to say this is the first time that has ever happened. 2/The toilet paper in our room had a brown fingerprint on it. I am not even going to let my brain go to what that could have been. Disgusting! 3/The room itself was just banged up. Banged up furniture, banged up shower. The shower knob wouldn't stay up so I had to hold it so it didn't get scalding hot for our kiddo to shower. 4/Location was great but not walkable with a kid so you will have to Uber. It is unsafe to cross multiple lanes of traffic so be prepared to Uber. 5/Clink was great but be prepared to pay. $17 for butter noodles was pretty laughable. 6/$71 night/valet fee for hotel guests 7/Walked downstairs at 9:04 and no coffee left. (Not cool) All in all, if not here for business we would choose another hotel.

While we only stayed one night at The Liberty Hotel Boston, we really enjoyed our stay. The unique style of the property lends the a memorable experience. Clink was also a nice touch that added to the atmosphere. We look forward to returning again.
