This is a very cool hotel. The location is great, and very walkable to so much of Boston. The lobby and bar area are incredible and it's just a fun place to hang out. The rooms are not huge, but well appointed with very upscale furnishings and decor. Our room had a king bed, desk/chair, and table/chair. The huge TV...

This my second stay at The Liberty but my first since they remodeled... The Lobby remains unchanged: Breathtaking, massive, gorgeous, very social; One of the best hotel lobbies in the world. Every time I come, I still am amazed by this and it's worth it alone to stay here. Check in was great! They offered me a glass of champagne...

NIcely appointed rooms in good condition, decent sheets and towels. Room feels a wee bity corporate but not bad. Tough to find in the map. Nice staff. Drinks in lobby are good but certainly pricey. Breakfeast was overpriced.

Stayed here for a night. Will never return. Upon arrival, our bathtub was very unclean and had a bunch of hairs in it. Had called about 10 times for someone to clean it and it took 45 min for someone to show. Tom at the front desk should not be in the hospitality industry, for he did not send someone...

Last minute, decided to stay over in Boston during college tours and decided to try this unique property.

This is a fine property. Used to be a famous jail that was reconverted into a hotel. Very nice and clean room, although with a view to a wall. Very easy checkin and checkout. Breakfast was good although very expensive.

We stayed in room 823 for an overnight visit. We selected this hotel based on location to Eye & Ear Institute, and we could not have been any closer. The staff were very warm and welcoming.
