Expert Review

Boston’s long-defunct Charles Street Jail, built in 1851, was reborn in summer 2007 as The Liberty Hotel, a 298-room luxury property with interiors partially designed by Alexandra Champalimaud, the A-list designer behind New York’s Algonquin, Pierre, and Carlyle hotels. Situated at the foot of Beacon Hill, the stone cruciform building – which retains its historic catwalks and 90-foot central rotunda – is joined by a new, 16-story tower housing the majority of guestrooms. Indulge in guilty pleasures in preserved cells at the lobby’s “jail” bar, then relax in rooms with touch-screen VOIP phones, flatscreen TVs, and views of the bustling Charles River. Booked elsewhere? Drop by The Liberty Hotel anyway – the soaring lobby is a Boston destination in its own right.
