The Luxury Collection Gives The Liberty $11m Makeover

The Liberty

Once home to several notorious inmates, the location now features 298 accommodations re-imagined by interior designer, Bill Rooney

The Luxury Collection, under Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, has completed an $11 million guestroom renovation of The Liberty in Boston. Positioned at the foot of the cobblestone-lined streets of Beacon Hill, the hotel represents the transformation of the infamous Charles Street Jail.

Once home to several notorious inmates, the architectural gem features 298 newly designed accommodations re-imagined by acclaimed interior designer, Bill Rooney. Steeped heavily in history, the rejuvenated guestrooms deliver a ‘Quintessentially Boston’ atmosphere.

Custom furniture, accents, and artwork as well as herringbone wall coverings, wide-plank hardwood floors, library-style club chairs, and leather headboards evoke a luxurious New England feel. The property’s bathrooms feature four-fixture floating granite vanities, glass showers, and soaking tubs.

Additionally, many of the refurbished chambers offer spectacular views of Beacon Hill and the sailboat strewn waters of the Charles River. The rigorous project includes the redesign of some of the city’s top suites, including the Ebersol and Charles River Suites.

Travelers and locals will have complimentary access to Boston’s music, art, fashion, and fitness scenes with Liberty Affairs. The innovative weekly series of events delivers hand-picked experiences hosted by the hotel, from live jazz in the lobby to weekly fashion shows featuring local and national designers.

“The Liberty’s renovation project is a cornerstone in The Luxury Collection brand’s $300 million dollar investment effort to renovate and reopen some of the most iconic hotels in North America,” said Hoyt H. Harper II, Global Brand Leader of The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts.
