Housed in an iconic Boston landmark and originally built as a prison in 1851, the Liberty Hotel is a unique luxury property with a fun, modern atmosphere and design that honors the building’s rich history. Liberty Hotel underwent a restoration in 2007 and in 2016; an $11 million dollar investment pushed the hotel into luxury. The 298 rooms at the hotel are stylish and elegant, with interesting decorative elements that incorporate the incarceration theme, and upscale bathrooms with separate rain showers and soaking tubs. Details such as framed skeleton keys, heavy vaults for bedside tables, and earth tones make the rooms classy while giving praise to history. Amenities include quality Luxury Collection beds topped with Frette linens, large flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and minibars. The Liberty features three restaurants and two bars, each with a distinct dining option. Multiple dining options combined with a fitness center, 24-hour business center, indoor and outdoor event space, and pet-friendly accommodations all make this hotel one of the best values in Boston. The intriguing back story and architectural grace make it one of the most attractive hotels in the area. Located in Boston’s Beacon Hill community and two blocks from the Charles River, the Liberty is just a short walk to lots of shopping, dining, and tourist sites such as the Charles River Esplanade, the Museum of Science, and the Boston Common. The hotel is also a 10-minute drive from Fenway Park, Harvard Square, Harvard University and Faneuil Hall. The Liberty is popular with couples and business travelers but is also a great choice for visitors interested in history.
