    Very disappointing

    Waited a long time to check in and when finally it’s our turn , we were told by Chris we need to come back after 3pm while the people in front of us were able to check in early. We had to store our luggage while we walk around. Nothing much in the neighborhood except for the shopping mall. Starbucks is closed at 2 pm and their restaurant, Artbar is just ok. They need to provide more options and extend their hours. I had to ask for my discount for my silver membership with hotels .con otherwise they wouldn’t have even bothered to provide that. Water bottle is $3.00 while The Liberty Hotel gives free coffee, bottled water for their guests. I am very ,very disappointed with this hotel and I’ve always had good experience with their other location

    Nice stay, clean room, great staff

    We enjoyed staying here, however the pictures make it look nicer than their actual condition. The river view room we were assigned was basically a big closet and the bathroom was tiny. Photos of the outdoor seating are misleading, however it was still relaxing. The staff was phenomonal. Location was convenient and we would stay here again despite being disapointed about the room.

    Anniversary trip!

    Everything was lovely! Didn't get a chance to experience the restaurant. Did seem to need a better air conditioner.

    Wedding

    Just a couple of things: 1. The washers on the shower head need to be replaced. Several times I had to step back into the shower to stop the drip, drip, drip. 2) I loved the multiple outlets next to the bed. I have a sleep machine and did not have to crawl all over the floor to find an outlet. 3). I am sure this a COVID thing but since cleaning the room is no longer an option, larger garbage bins are essential.

    Hotel NEEDS bigger showers.

    The overall stay was ok. But I do have to complain about the shower size. It was so small it was almost impossible to take a propet shower.

    Fantastic Customer Service, Beautiful River View

    My first night I had an issue with my room. There was a leak in the bathroom ceiling, but the staff quickly got me a new room and sent someone to fix the issue. For the rest of my stay, the staff followed up to make sure I had everything I needed and that I was comfortable in my room. The hotel has beautiful views of the Charles River, is pet-friendly, and its rooms have everything you need. But it is the staff that makes this hotel special. I would especially recommend this hotel for weddings and other events. It's a nice space for special occasions.
