Did Guests at The Liberty Have These Views When It Was a Jail?
We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
Uh, so, question: you know how Boston's Liberty Hotel used to be a jail? Yeah. Think the, uh, guests of the place got to enjoy kickass views of Boston like this one back then? (We're thinking no).
This is a shot we snapped out of the floor-to-ceiling window from our room on the 14th floor of the Liberty; even though Boston was crappy and cloudy when we were around, we still loved the sweeping cityscape. If we looked directly downward from our room, we could also look down into The Yard which, on Wednesday nights, is the site of the hotel's cute "Yappy Hour."
One complaint, though: the window swept all the way across from one side of the wall to the other, but we couldn't actually get the curtains to go all the way back so we could get the full effect maybe we were operating them wrong, but the curtains only let us see 2/3rds of the view. Boo.
Rates at the Liberty start at around $345. Check out the video tour of this room (#1405) here.
