The Liberty Hotel

Unique historic hotel in central Boston

The Liberty is one of Boston’s premier hotels, situated in a prime central spot just a few minutes from the Boston Common and offering direct access to the Charles River esplanade. Housed in what was once the city’s most iconic jail and dating from the 1850’s, this hotel has maintained the grandeur of the original building after undergoing a $150 million transformation, whilst adding contemporary touches and modern amenities. Enter through the staggering 90-foot high central rotunda and soak up the distinctively historic atmosphere by dining in CLINK – a modern American restaurant that incorporates vestiges of the original jail cells and an open kitchen to create an exciting dining experience. There are also several other bars and restaurants and a modern fitness centre for your convenience. Best of all, guests can enjoy every modern convenience in the new tower block rooms, constructed alongside the atmospheric prison building.

First rate property, caring staff...

East Greenwich, Rhode Island

My wife and I stayed at The Liberty two separate times, leading up to and following my wife's surgery at Mass General. The hotel itself is very, very nice...all aspects...lobby, restaurants and the rooms. The staff goes out of its way to make you feel welcome. The Liberty is a great choice if you're in town to enjoy Beacon Hill and all of Boston, and it is by far the best choice if you need access to Mass General...about a two minute walk...safe at all hours. Special thanks to the front desk manager Joe T., who consistently went above and beyond in making sure that we were well taken care of during a stressful time for our family.

Quality with Exceptional Person Touch

Atlanta, Georgia

Long overdue review for the staff at the Liberty. From the moment you approach the valet staff you know you're going to have a great experience at The Liberty. The excellent person service continues as you are greeted by the front desk staff. Hats off to both EJ, Mark and Jill for going the extra mile to ensure my stay was unforgettable. I spend at least 100 nights at various Bonvoy throughout the year and I can easily say that my stay at The Liberty was hands down the best of the year.
