Our Take: Sure, location isn't this hotel's strong suit—it sits at the base of the Longfellow Bridge, which connects downtown Boston to Cambridge—but you don't come to The Liberty Hotel for convenience. This hotel is an attraction in itself since it was once a prison that housed notable "guests" like Malcolm X and the Boston Strangler. Today, the building oozes luxury, best exhibited in its stunning waterfront views and five top-notch gourmet restaurants. Recent guests can't stop raving about the hotel's unique historic feel. This successful melding of the old and the new even earned The Liberty Hotel a spot on our list of the World's Best Prison Hotels. But don't worry—the accommodations are just the opposite of a prison cell, furnished with sleek modern décor and cozy bathrobes, flat-screen TVs, and large, floor-to-ceiling windows. What's more, because of The Liberty's family ties, Starwood Preferred Guests can trade in points for perks at this hotel.
