If the idea of getting locked up in a room full of luxuries fascinates you, look no further than the iconic Liberty Hotel located between Beacon Hill and Charles Street in Boston. This legendary hotel was for the longest of time, starting from 1851, the Charles Street Jail. However, in its present state, it is the most lively residence in town, offering guests 298 contemporary rooms along with a host of living and dining spaces.

No. 284

No. 284 might have been renovated entirely in 2018, making it one of the newer "guest houses" in Boston, but the building it is in dates back to 1880, giving it a lovely vintage feel. With only 23 rooms in total, No. 284 has a snug, intimate environment, amplified further by an exclusive art collection on display, and elegant furnishings that add an air of sophistication to the establishment.

The rooms at No. 284 are a sight for sore eyes, bright, airy, and spacious, with even their smallest room accommodating a tiny kitchenette. In-room amenities include 400-thread-count linen, complimentary breakfast, WIFI, and smart televisions. If available, guests should pick the penthouse that features a stunning skylight and a private terrace. A library on the hotel's ground floor completes the picture of this heavenly abode in Boston's famous Bay Back neighborhood.

The Verb

Staying at The Verb might not exactly suit someone wanting to break away from the world and have a peaceful time. Think of the hotel as a 24-hour party place, with its music-inspired rooms, vivid colors, and a jovial setting that encourages an over-the-top and loud stay. Situated next to Fenway Park, it is in the heart of everything Boston and thus popular with both music lovers, tourists, and baseball fans. The interiors take inspiration from the 60s and 70s music scene with an eye-popping glow all around, stylish couches, a vinyl library for guests to use, a poolside, and the "onsite restaurant" Hojoko, that serves some of the best Japanese food in all of Boston.

The rooms at The Verb are in a different league altogether. Expect a mishmash of the new and the old with large comfortable beds, vintage typewriters, LP players, blackout blinds, earplugs, retro art, HDTV, WIFI, and Keurig coffeemakers. Whether it is their heated lap pool, the discount resident guests get at a few nearby eateries, or the iconic Flxible 1947 bus, a break at The Verb promises to be a dynamic and eventful affair.

The Boxer

Located inside Boston's very own Flatiron Building, The Boxer is a newly renovated hotel that takes pride in the city's ability to face any adversity and stand firm. The hotel's central location near TD Garden and close to the Charles River makes it the ideal place to stay in Boston, both for business and leisure. The most appealing aspect of The Boxer is that it subtly combines the heritage of the century-old building with the modernity of our present time. Whether it is their in-house restaurant Bulfinch Social, the common areas, or the guest rooms, among the vintage décor, there are stylish contemporary elements that make every stay as comfortable as possible.

All of the 80 rooms at the Boxer have "modern industrial chic" décor, enhanced by their petit yet cozy space and often unusual floor plan due to the distinct structure of the building. In-room amenities include coffee makers, iHome docking stations, branded toiletries, and a whole lot of love for the city of Boston.
