Travel Tuesday – Got to Jail, Go Directly to Jail

I saw this post on 2Modern about the new Liberty Hotel here in Boston. I used to live right near there and since moving, have completely missed the renovation of the historic Charles Street Jail.

It got me thinking, any other jail house hotels in the world? Here are a few I found.

Jail Hotel, Lucerne, Switzerland



Malmaison Hotel, Oxford, England


Jail House Inn, Newport, Rhode Island



Could you stay in a jailhouse?

  1. ughhh….i need to skip these posts; my desire to travel is strong enough without ALSO seeing such amazing, interesting and faboo hotels…..and i have NO funds for any of it!

    tantalizing!

    i would stay in a jailhouse, as long as it had been converted to a hotel. or even, bare minimum, a hostel. i like strange, unusual and repurposed spaces!

  2. I think the designers have done a great job in remaking this beautiful piece of Architecture into a new use destination. I would go there for a drink, but would probably pass on sleeping there…too much negative chi.

  3. This is too much fun! Makes me really miss Boston, it’s been too long. I need a Yankee fix (not the baseball team!) and real good clam chowder, oh, and let’s not forget Newbury Street, the shopping mecca. Very interesting post, good stuff.
