Starwood Hotels and Resorts has completed a US$11 million renovation of the guest rooms at The Liberty, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Boston.
Housed within a building dating back to 1851 which formerly served as Charles Street Jail, the refurbishment works have seen all 298 rooms reimagined by interior designer Bill Rooney (responsible for projects including the Peninsula Chicago, and Peninsula New York).
The new rooms feature custom furniture and fixtures, tailor-made artwork, herringbone wall coverings, wide-plank hardwood floors, library-style club chairs, leather headboards and separate glass showers and large soaking tubs in the bathrooms.
Commenting on the redesign Hoyt H. Harper II, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts said:
“The Liberty’s renovation project is a cornerstone in The Luxury Collection brand’s US$300 million dollar investment effort to renovate and reopen some of the most iconic hotels in North America,”
“We are thrilled to deliver enhanced accommodations while still allowing guests to experience the authenticity of one of Boston’s most notable landmarks.”
The Liberty Hotel is located on Beacon Hill overlooking the Charles River, and offers six food and beverage outlets and 6,000 square feet of meeting space.
Starwood recently announced plans to open two Luxury Collection properties in Cuba – the first hotels by a US hospitality company in over 60 years (see news March 21), and will open its first property in Tokyo later this year (see news January 24).
