Official Vacation Guide to Beacon Hill in Boston, MA

Staying with us here at The Liberty Hotel, you’ve got as your venerable and happening stomping ground one of New England’s best-known neighborhoods: Boston’s Beacon Hill.

A federally designated historic district, Beacon Hill’s story extends all the way back to Boston’s earliest beginnings. And it wears its heritage elegantly, what with its Federal architecture, its cobblestone streets, and its gas lamps.

Time-tested it may be, but Beacon Hill is also, of course, as vibrant as Boston comes. From here at The Liberty Hotel, you’ve got a dizzying array of shopping and dining opportunities within reach of a pleasant stroll—not least along the famous thoroughfare of Charles Street.

Beacon Hill Shopping

Whether you’re hunting designer fashion, unique vintage treasures, one-of-a-kind home furnishings, or just about anything else, Beacon Hill is a shopper’s paradise. Amid the bustle of Charles Street and beyond, you can really cover some retail-therapy territory: Seek out accessories and jewelry at December Thieves (88 Charles St.); eye-catching clothes, shoes, and fashion accouterments at Crush Boutique (131 Charles St.); high-end furnishings and home décor at Kate & Theo (96 Charles St.); sporting goods at NRO Sport (39 Charles St.) and clothes and toys for the younger crowd at Red Wagon (69 Charles St.)—to name a mere sampling. Ready to pamper yourself after a day of shopping? Head to Core de Vie for a spa treatment/facial (40 Charles St.), LexRx for a skin pick-me-up (121 Charles St.), and Agostino Salon (70 Charles St.) for a fresh ‘do! 

Beacon Hill Dining

Beacon Hill is, equally, a world-class place to tend to your appetite. The Liberty Hotel itself holds its own beautifully on the neighborhood’s culinary scene: CLINK. treats you to seasonal New England flavors, fresh-as-can-be North Atlantic seafood, and bold, inventive, and inspired cuisine from Executive Chef Daniel Kenney, while Chef Lydia Shire dazzles with the Italian-, Mediterranean-, and Middle Eastern-inspired dishes of Scampo. And then, of course, there are the snazzily situated drinks-and-eats nooks of Alibi, Catwalk, and The Lobby Bar.

So definitely take advantage of the spectacular wining-and-dining opportunities at your beck and call here at The Liberty. But of course we’re also happy to serve as a jumping-off point for nearby culinary adventures out and about in Beacon Hill: artisan wood-fired pizzas and pastas at Figs (42 Charles St.), gastropub pairings of craft beer and food at the Tip Tap Room (138 Cambridge St.), bistro delicacies at The Hungry I (71 Charles St.), upscale European fare at No. 9 Park (9 Park St.), pastries and confections at Tatte Bakery & Café (70 Charles St.),  and a whole lot more.

Lazy coffee sessions, happy-hour drinks, gourmet feasts, shopping safaris—a Beacon Hill vacation is head-to-toe delightful, and it’s yours for the having as a guest of ours here at the smack-dab-in-the-middle-of-it-all Liberty Hotel.
