The Liberty Hotel in Boston | Boston, United States | The Liberty Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, is without a doubt a true gem of Boston, right at Beacon Hill with panoramic views of Charles River Basin and the Longfellow Bridge, one of the premium areas of this fantastic city. Now what makes The Liberty Hotel unique, is that originally this was the old Charles Street Jail, which after extensive $150 million acquisition, renovation and construction process, marrying historic architecture with the high standards of refined, modern travel, The Liberty Hotel has become New England’s premier luxury destination. Certainly I would not mind at all to be locked down to serve prison for a long period at The Liberty Hotel.[tab name=’> CM Experience’]
Commanding in scale, the original granite edifice was innovative for its day, comprising a beautiful cruciform-shaped structure complete with a 90-foot central rotunda and cupola built in 1851. Today, through meticulous planning reflective of the property’s colorful past, this strong and beautiful building is home to a variety of transcendent public spaces linked by historic catwalks – including lobby and reception areas, restaurant, bar, grand ballroom, and meeting rooms – as well as a limited number of guestrooms. Among the other dramatic features that have been preserved are vestiges of jail cells within the hotel lobby bar and magnificent, oversize windows. A new, adjoining 16-story tower houses the majority of guestrooms with every modern convenience.
The ultimate union of historic influence and contemporary design, this luxury hotel in Boston is inspired by a sophisticated interior decor that integrates with the architecture’s beautiful simplicity. Echoing the stone facade, reception desks are punctuated with a panel of granite warmed by a surrounding concentric panel of mahogany woods. Throughout the public areas, American colonial prints, enlarged and rendered in historic colors such as maroon, gray and purple, provide a fresh take on a traditional look, while bold geometric carpets in rich hues of purple and yellow are reminiscent of New England window panes and the friezes of traditional doors. (photo above you can see clearly the transition between the original building and the new tower).
We were hosted by Mirko Bissetta – Concierge and member of Les Clefs d’Or USA, for a site inspection of the hotel and post lunch at CLINK one of the restaurants of the hotel. 300 guestrooms, including 10 incomparable suites with river views. Defining serenity, each is graciously appointed in tones of pale rose and taupe accented with rich mahogany woods and touches of stainless steel. Luxurious, imported bed linens and four-fixture baths complete the experience in this luxury hotel in Boston.
The Liberty Hotel is home to five of Boston’s best restaurants. Urban dwellers and hotel guests alike socialize while enjoying the daily changing menu and extensive wine list at CLINK., sultry cocktails at Alibi, exciting Italian at Chef Lydia Shire’s Scampo and the Liberty’s newest bar, Catwalk.
An architectural gem, what was once the iconic Charles Street Jail is now the stunning, vibrant Liberty Boston Hotel. Since opening in September 2007, the Boston luxury hotel quickly became the “must-visit” downtown Boston destination for visitors and local residents alike.
Bedrooms feature beautiful panoramic views of the Longfellow Bridge and Charles River. I am not posting videos this time since I was only there for a Site Inspection and did not spend the night reviewing the hotel, but from what I have seen, I must say that The Liberty Hotel is, once again a true gem and peace of architectural heritage of Boston.
