Famous US Hotels with a Rich History to Visit in 2022

By LIZA WEISSTUCH, Lonely Planet Writer

THE LIBERTY HOTEL BOSTON

The Charles Street Jail, a colossal stone building in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, first opened and started welcoming guests, so to speak, in 1851. It housed such personalities as former Boston mayor and later governor James Michael Curley, Malcolm X and Sacco and Vanzetti. Today’s guests receive a much warmer and more luxurious welcome.

The ultra-luxe, sprawling 298-room Liberty Hotel opened in 2007, fulfilling the wisecrack-turned-prophesy Babe Ruth uttered when he toured the place in 1925: ‘This isn’t a jail, it’s a hotel.’ The view upon entering is nothing short of awe-inspiring, with a sky-high atrium, catwalks and original brick walls. What was once the drunk tank is now a hip bar named Alibi, adorned with mug shots of the rich and famous. Clink, a high-end yet laidback New England-centric restaurant, is a destination for the foodie who likes a combination of delicious cuisine and eccentric surroundings.

The Liberty was recently included in The Independent and MSN‘s Boston city guide as one of the best places to stay in the East Coast’s coziest city!

Right in the heart of Beacon Hill, The Liberty Hotel was once the Charles Street Jail, and the inner courtyard is a masterpiece – octagonal in shape and flooded with natural light. While the rooms only have subtle nods to the building’s history, the Clink bar is set in the former cells.

Comments Off on Heat Up Your Summer BBQ with this Grilled Scallops Recipe from CLINK. Executive Chef Daniel Kenney

One of the best parts of summer is cooking and grilling outside, all while enjoying our beautiful New England summer weather. Soak up the last days of summer with this delicious recipe from CLINK.’s Executive Chef Daniel Kenney. This dish is fast and simple for a late summer dinner, utilizing your outdoor grill for the cooking to keep the house cool!

Grilled Scallops with Heirloom Tomato, Sweet Corn and Garden Basil

Ingredients for 4 Entrée Size Meals:

-2 pounds of fresh large size sea scallops, dry pack, not previously frozen

-4 ears of local sweet corn on the cobb

-2 pounds ripe heirloom tomatoes

-1 bunch fresh basil

-2 fresh lemons

-extra virgin olive oil

-sea salt

-ground black pepper

Start by getting your outdoor grill nice and hot, rub the grill with a lightly oiled rag, this will clean the grill as well as aid in creating a non-stick surface. Remove the husk from corn and season lightly with olive oil, salt and black pepper, place the corn on the grill, and turn from time to time, the corn should have good color from the grill on all sides, with a hot grill this should take approximately 10 minutes, remove the corn from the grill and let rest for a few minutes, then remove the corn kernels from the cobb and reserve for plating.

Next, take your scallops and remove the small muscle on the sides of the scallops, lightly season with olive oil, salt, black pepper and basil leaves that have been removed from the stems and sliced.

Place the scallops on the hot grill and let sit on one side for 2 minutes, then turn over and cook another 2 minutes , take off grill and let rest.

Slice the room temperature tomatoes into various shapes and sizes to give your dish a natural appearance, season the tomatoes with olive oil, salt and black pepper, spoon the warm grilled corn over the tomatoes, place the scallops on the items, use torn leaves of the remaining basil all over the dish with a squeeze of fresh lemon, and enjoy with a chilled Chardonnay or craft beer.
