They say crime doesn’t pay. Well, if prisons were like this ‘they’ might have to eat their words. This 19th Century prison was renovated by modern architects and designers working with historians and conservationists to create a unique space guaranteed to impress. Before you arrive, Liberty’s ‘luggage liaison’ team will have already picked up your baggage from the airport and placed it in your room. Your eyes expand as you walk into the central atrium with a glass roof 90 feet above your head. The original features of the prison have been used to create an unusual and one-off experience you as a guest. The first thing you do in your room is gaze out of your floor-to-ceiling windows through ornate ironwork, admiring the spectacular granite architecture peculiar to the historic city of Boston. You can enjoy a range of events open to the local community and complimentary for you. Take a cookery lesson with a celebrity chef, chill out at the film club, see some of Boston’s top bands live and look after your wellness with a yoga lesson. The hotel has 5 of the city’s top restaurants and bars behind its converted prison walls, the restaurants even use old prison cells for cozy private dining. Now that’s reinvention.
