A special look at The Liberty Hotel in Boston, MA

We have a travel date that lands us in Boston coming up soon.  Naturally being travel fans we're excited to find a hotel in Boston that'll make our travel experience one-of-a-kind and exciting.   In a post from a few months back I touched on a hotel named The Liberty Hotel in Boston and today I'm going to extend that look...

The Liberty Hotel is first and foremost a converted jail to a modern hip hotel!

The Charles Street Jail in 1851

The Liberty Hotel today!

On September 5th, 2007 the hotel opened up in this former jail at the cost of around $150,000,000.   This luxury showplace sits at the foot of Boston's posh Beacon Hill neighborhood overlooking the Charles River. Google Map to Liberty.

Though extensively updated, the jail's granite exterior and light-filled interiors remain mostly unchanged. Soaring 90 feet, the jail's central rotunda -- with its windows and historic catwalks -- was beautifully preserved and forms the lobby and public spaces.

Within the historic building, the Liberty offers 18 brick-walled guest rooms, as well as a restaurant and bar and meeting and event rooms.  Across the courtyard garden (once the jail's exercise yard), a new 16-story tower houses 280 guest rooms.

Four venues, CLINK, Alibi, Scampo, and the Liberty Bar anchor the Boston luxury hotel’s 298 luxurious rooms and easy access to the city from its prime downtown location at the foot of historic Beacon Hill make The Liberty Hotel the perfect spot for experiencing all that Boston offers.

You want amenities?    Concierge service, complimentary high speed internet access (wired or WiFi), a 24-hour fitness center, valet parking, in-room safes and free bikes you can use to peddle your way around Boston!   The Liberty Hotel is also pet friendly for those of you with 4 legged friends when you travel.

They're website is amazing and you can see it for yourself here: Liberty Hotel Official Site.  They're also offering a "Guilty Pleasures Romance" package offers champagne delivered to your room along with chocolate dipped strawberries, an intimacy kit followed by either in room breakfast or breakfast in Clink with a late late 3pm check out time.  Round II anyone?  :-D

Prices for that kit are based on a 2 night stay starting from around $350 a night, and like I said in my last post, at least that's cheaper than bail.
