    The Liberty and its venues have gained renown for a reason: not too clubby, not too lounge-y, the offer simply pure, unadulterated style.

    Go to the chic lobby bar.

    The jail-turned-hotel’s atmosphere is certainly arresting, with three-story arched windows, iron and granite elements, and walls that whisper of Boston’s most famed criminals.

    Definitely hit the old drunk tank turned bar on the first level...this is the best hotel in BOS...

    The Liberty Hotel was once the site of the Charles Street Jail. A jail "so despicable" that it was closed due to serving lobsters to its inmates every day (seriously). More info avail via our blog Read more

    You don't have to be in a ghoulish mood to try this festive fall cocktail from Cosmo: The Pumpkin Martini. Cream liqeur, vanilla vodka, and canned pumpkin puree taste delish any time of year! Read more

    Cosmopolitan Magazine · June 15, 2011

    Once a prison, the hotel has a restaurant that even features original jail cells – so if you’re like us, you’ll enjoy pretending your butter knife is a really fancy shiv.

    Great accommodations, even if you are not staying as a guest here. The bars & restaurants range from grabbing a casual drink to fine dining. Rooms are top notch & steps away from Beacon Hill or the T.

    The pizzas and salads are fantastic, as everything on the menu comes directly from the Scampo kitchens.

    Head across the street to Harvard Gardens. Same kitchen as Alibi + cheaper food!

    If you've got a group, it's worth the minimum bar tab to reserve a private table. You'll get your own dedicated bartender and a very comfortable spot to soak in the trendy atmosphere.

    Get the presidential suite. It's so big you will literally get lost in it. We had to call room service to find the mini bar.

    Don't forget the complimentary welcome glass of champagne! All bars and restaurants are jail themed. One of the best hotels in the country! Attention to service and detail.

    Once the storied Charles Street Jail, the original cell doors make up the décor of this elegant Boston hot spot.

    Obey the dress code, it has been put in place for a reason. Gentlemen, this means no baseball hats or sneakers

    This @spg hotel has degraded in the past few years. From poor customer service, to scratchy towels, cheap robes & bed linens- the stay has been an absolute fail. Until they change- stick to Alibi
