Thank goodness this isn’t some “experience three hots and a cot” theme spot, where you pretend you’re a prisoner for a night (though the robes do have mock prison numbers on the back) and suites have kitschy names like The Jailer, The Lawyer, The Director and The Judge. Otherwise, your converted cell is now a deluxe room or suite that’s tastefully decked out with a double bed, interesting art work, a flat screen TV. And WiFi is included in the rate as well. The building's exterior is a bit confusing as the bars on the window still scream "prison", so we'd like to know if the views from your room are obstructed or if it's all for show. From the looks of the room pic above, it's the latter.
Join the rest of the general population in the central living area that’s accented with mood lights and quirky lounge chairs, the fitness center, sauna, or head out to the former yard which is now a café where you can get a coffee and enjoy the taste of freedom caffeine.
Rates begin at $153 per night, including breakfast.
