Liberty Hotel

Liberty Hotel's claim to fame is that the 1851 granite building served as the Charles Street Jail until 1990.  

Renovations turned it into luxury accommodations while retaining some of the jail's "features" such as a few barred windows. 

Although the Liberty Hotel is across Charles Street and thus technically in the West End rather than Beacon Hill, you'll find it perfectly convenient for exploring the neighborhood as well as enjoying the nightlife around TD Garden.  It is adjacent to Massachusetts General Hospital.

What's special:  Terrific service (such as airport luggage pickup/delivery) and fun ambiance in its lobby and excellent restaurant and bar.  Some room offer great views of Boston's July 4th fireworks show over the Charles River.  Public spaces such as Clink, the jail-themed bar, attract locals as well as visitors.

Wyndham Boston

Like the Liberty Hotel, the Wyndham Hotel is located across Charles Street from today's Beacon Hill (a century or two ago, this area was considered part Beacon Hill's north slope), and is also close to MGH. 

The Wyndham offers moderate (for this neighborhood) rates, comfortable furnishings, and convenient location.

What's special:  The rooftop swimming pool.  Also, behind the hotel is a Whole Foods with a huge section of freshly prepared hot and cold carryout food, rumored to be the biggest of any WF in the country. 

Taj Boston Hotel

Beacon Hill Boston Hotels - Taj Boston Hotel

Taj Boston, located at the edge of the Back Bay neighborhood across from the Public Garden, is another excellent choice close to Beacon Hill as it is only about a 2-minute walk away.

The luxurious Taj is a great choice for exploring Beacon Hill, Back Bay, Bay Village, and the Theatre District neighborhoods.  If you're planning to do lots of shopping along Newbury Street, you'll appreciate the convenient location.

What's special:  Floor to ceiling windows in the bar give you a superb view of the beautiful Public Garden as you sip your drink.  But there's a lot more to love here:  afternoon tea service, crystal chandeliers everywhere, lovely antiques and art.  If you're here between March and November, do not miss the spectacular Sunday brunch on the Taj's rooftop terrace overlooking the Public Garden.
