Sleep where the criminals once did. For over a century, the Liberty Hotel existed as a decidedly different entity—the Charles Street Jail, once “home” to inmates like Malcolm X and Sacco and Vanzetti. A complete revamp of the building happened in 2007, and it was an inspired (and above-board) transformation: Visit today and you’ll still see cell bars embedded in the walls before you head off to drink on the side patio that was once the exercise yard. The 298-room luxury hotel includes sumptuous rooms with river views, five different restaurants and bars (Scampo is helmed by legendary Boston chef Lydia Shire) and a happening nightlife scene. During the summer months, the hotel hosts regular yoga classes and after-work events for both guests and locals, including fashion shows, cooking classes and a weekly “Yappy Hour” for dog owners.
