As all baseball fans (even the Yankee faithful) know, Red Sox Nation stretches far and wide. With that in mind, Boston's Liberty Hotel, which occupies a lavishly converted city jail in Beacon Hill, is offering overnight packages that include hard-to-get tickets to Fenway Park.
The offer, called Fenway Fan or Foe, includes one night's accommodations for two, a pair of Pavilion Club tickets to a Red Sox game and breakfast for two. It's available on four upcoming spring weekends: April 17-19 (when the Baltimore Orioles will be in town); May 8-10 (Tampa Bay Rays); June 5-7 (Texas Rangers); and June 19-20 (Atlanta Braves). The price starts at $725.
The 300-room hotel opened in September 2007 after a $150 million transformation of the mid-nineteenth-century Charles Street Jail. An exquisite Romanesque structure, it features exposed brick walls, wrought-iron chandeliers and an atrium (pictured) that stretches 90 feet high. Among many winks and nods to the building's old days as a lockup, the first-floor bar is called Alibi. It's located in what was used to be the "drunk tank" of the jail.
