We have stayed at this hotel a handful of times now and it never disappoints. Excellent from the moment you arrive to the second you depart. We appreciate this hotel especially at the moment due to its close proximity to Mass General Hospital.
Music, people, bar... everything’s good!
My wife and I loved everything at the Liberty Hotel, location, view, Hotel is the best we’ve ever stayed in, restaurant and food very good as well. We will be back.
It was a little chilly in the restaurant. We’re in the heating business and understand why, the Scampo.
The location, fantastically comfortable bedding, and a sense of difference
Our room didn’t seem well maintained - needed a refresh, the handle for the shower fell off, the flow was very poor, the scales didn’t work, staff didn’t offer papers tell us about breakfast - and others were getting Prosecco and I had to ask - but I was a member and genius booking.com member??
The bed was incredibly comfortable
