    Historical Traveler Reviews The Liberty Hotel Boston

    An all around EXCELLENT hotel

    from

    This is a one-of-a-kind hotel in many capacities. The lobby/reception area is unreal!!! Exposed brick, vaulted ceilings that stretch for over 5 floors, high-end restaurants and bars. The bar [Alibi...located on the ground floor] was jam packed on Friday night with a mainly young-hip crowd. They have some cool mug-shots of famous celebritys on the exposed brick walls, thus sticking to [and not in a corny way] the jail-house theme.

    The staff is extremely knowledgeable and eager to help. Our bellman, Chris, went over all of the amenities that the hotel had to offer and reccomended an A+ lunch spot [Parrish Cafe on Boylston St.] and was eager to help.

    The locations is great. RIght at the northern tip of Charles Street [literally a 5 minute walk to the heart of Beacon Hill and 10 minutes to the Commons]. There's a T-Stop right outside the hotel as well.

    The rooms are great as well. Chaise lounge, plasma tv, very modern and spacious bathrooms with separate soaking tub and slate-walls in the shower. My ONLY slight complaint would be the bed. It was okay. I've slept in better/more comfortable beds at Sheraton's.

    All-in-all, a great stay. I would certainly stay here again and loved every minute of it. If you want to stay in a hotel that's edgy and classy, then this is your best and only bet in Boston.

    Chiudetemici dentro e buttate via la chiave!

    Il "tema" ci è piaciuto! L'albergo è bellissimo e personale si è fatto davvero in quattro per noi. La colazione è eccellente! La vista che avevamo era la migliore della città. Di sicuro dirò a parenti e amici di venire a stare qui. Inoltre consiglierò ai miei amici del posto di provare il bar!

    Lock me up and throw away the key!

    from

    loved the "theme!" the hotel was gorgeous, staff went above and beyond. Breakfast was excellent! Our view was the best in the city - definitely sending family/friends to stay. sending local friends to check out the bar!

    Schließt mich ein und werft den Schlüssel weg!

    from

    Das "Motto" war klasse! Das Hotel war fantastisch. Die Angestellten scheuten keine Mühe. Das Frühstück war vorzüglich! Unsere Aussicht war die Beste in der Stadt - werden auf jeden Fall Familie und Freunde hierher schicken, um hier zu übernachten und Freunden aus der Gegend empfehlen, die Bar auszuprobieren.

    Innovative, striking elegant rooms!

    from

    The Liberty has a bounty of service people who are supporting your stay and are most accommodating. The history of the hotel is so interesting; must say "not a bad place to be locked up"!

    Charles Street Shopping, walk along Charles River, and just steps from Mass. General Hospital. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute, just wish I could stay longer.

    ¡Las habitaciones son innovadoras y excepcionalmente elegantes!

    from

    El Liberty cuenta con un montón de gente de servicio que te asisten durante tu estancia y son de lo más servicial. La historia del hotel es muy interesante; ¡tengo que decir que "no es un mal sitio donde estar encerrado"!

    Tienes las tiendas de Charles Street, puedes caminar por el río Charles, y te encuentras a unos pasos del Hospital General de Massachusetts. Disfruté muchísimo de cada minuto, tan solo me hubiera gustado quedarme más tiempo.

    Jailhouse rocks!

    from

    We arrived a couple of days after opening so while service was still a work in progress, we were wowed by the old jailhouse atrium now the location of check-in and a small cocktail bar. Our room wasn't ready so we had lunch at the Clink restaurant. The speciality 'hot stone cooking' at your table was a bit of a challenge after a long haul flight but our scallops and sweet potato fries were delicious.

    Our room was spacious and we loved the slate bathroom with Molton Brown freebies despite some plumbing problems (we were the 1st to stay in the room). One caveat when booking a room is that the hotel is right by the general hospital. Our 1st room overlooked the hospital's aircon units, we were moved to a room with a view of the huge 'Eye and Ear Hospital' sign and ER entrance but settled on another room with a view of the out patient dept. Not very romantic!

    15 minute transfer from Logan Airport and easy walk down Charles Street to enjoy the Common and Back Bay so good location.

    Un hotel nuevo que todavía no ha alcanzado "su momento"

    from

    Estuve en este hotel durante un viaje de negocios. Lo inauguraron 3 semanas antes de que yo llegase. Es un sitio sofisticado con todo lo que cabe esperar de un hotel nuevo que cuesta entre 300 y 600 dólares la noche. Dispones de telefonía IP que te dice cómo está el tiempo y esas cosas, pero son las cosas más básicas las que me estropearon la estancia. Lo básico es de lo que carecía: no había reloj alguno en la habitación, no había ni bloc ni bolígrafo, los teléfonos eran más complicados que mi ordenador y no había enchufes para los aparatos eléctrónicos. Lo del reloj y los enchufes es especialmente desconcertante teniendo en cuenta el entorno de alta tecnología. Ah sí, y la primera noche de 21:00h a 22:30h estuvieron utilizando una taladradora fuera de mi habitación. Dijeron que era cosa de la ciudad (parece ser que ya había pasado antes) y que no podían hacer nada. A unas horas increíbles, teniendo en cuenta el hospital que hay al lado. En mi opinión es muy desconsiderado con el resto de la ciudad.

    New Hotel not yet prime time

    from

    I stayed at this hotel as part of a business trip. They had their "soft opening" 3 weeks before my arrival. It's a fancy place with everything you would expect in a new $300-600/night hotel. VOIP phones that can tell you the weather and such, but it's the basic stuff that soured my stay. The basics that were lacking: no clock in the room, no pad and pen, phones that were more complicated than my computer, and no plugs for electronics. The clock and the plugs are particularly bafflingly given the high-tech surroundings. Oh yeah and a jackhammer ran outside my room from 9-10:30pm the first night. They said it was the city (it had happened before apparently) and there was nothing they could do. Amazing timing given the hospital next door. Thoughtless of the city IMO.

    Absolutely Lovely (w/ teeny tiny growing pains)

    from

    We were looking for a hotel to stay in for a last minute trip to Boston w/ two days to plan. Everything was booked and even the 3 star hotels were going for $300+/night. Then I found the Liberty Hotel which used to be a jail (haha!). At $275 a night for a five star hotel - it was a steal!

    Beautiful and well preserved building! The lobby area is an interesting mix of the old architecture and modern sleek deco. Not big on the installation btw. the escalators - but that's personal - I'd have preferred water and plants there. Our room was in the tower (not the jail, darn!) and the view was part Charles River and part into a hospital. Nicely furnished as you can see in the picture. There's also a very spacious bathroom w/ a large tub and shower. Man, if my NYC apt. can be like this!!! Love the Molten Brown bath products and the treats at the mini bar. (There's even something for the adults. ;) ) Love how the hotel only opened two nights ago so we were probably the first to be in that room!

    Everyone from the check in/out process, bell hop, concierge and housekeeping staff were polite and were eager to help. The location is convenient - across the street from the T, a few blocks from the high ways and so close to most tourist attractions.

    My super teeny grips are:

    1. WiFi in public area - I was told by one person at front desk that there was wifi in the public area for free, only to find out later that it wasn't set up yet;

    2. Turn down service - Consisted of throwing the blanket on bed A onto bed B and one of the robes on to bed A. Then turn down the down comforter on bed A but not B - er.. what's the point?

    3. The noise from the T and construction - It wasn't bad but you'll notice it the first few minutes. I've heard far worse noise from NYC traffic; and lastly

    4. The hotel car - this is a wonderful amenity. Please install GPS tracking as most car services have or give the driver a cellphone so the bell hop station would know where it is and what's the estimated time of returning to the hotel.

    Overall it was a lovely experience. Despite having access to a private club in the area, I'd still consider returning to the lovely Liberty Hotel.

    We had all been talking about how this leaving Cape Cod and going by train to Chicago would go. It meant arriving at station in Boston for an 1155AM departure. Now seasoned travellers we were planning to get there early to ensure maximum seat advantage. We'll leave at 0800 it is Saturday what can go wrong? Well we left at 0830 and hit a traffic jam at the bridge off Cape CID and then hit the shopping public of Boston at 1030.

    Got up early this morning and headed back to Fanuiel hall for breakfast. It wasn't as busy as yesterday, of course, it was only 8.45 am. Had the normal Breakfast Pannini, OJ and a coffee macchiato, as their latte's are weak and milky. Had a great breakfast! Walked around, but at that time of day and being a Sunday it was closed, due to open later. Didn't bother us, as we were just walking. Back at the hotel chatted with Jess on FaceTime and decided to go to Harvard University, as it ...

    My dream weekend was upon me all too soon. I remember being one of the most excited men on planet Earth when, while in Costa Rica, I had rerouted myself to Boston instead of Canada for a weekend of UFC and Joe Rogan. For years I have thought this as the pinnacle two-night jubilee. Harry and I flew into Boston and arrived at our hostel, Wednesday afternoon, where I spent some time writing to you guys and doing some stressful last-minute trip organising.
