Locked Up For A Night, At Your Nearest Prison Hotel!

Posted: Updated:

A prison is probably the last place you'd want to spend the night, but they are quickly becoming the "it" place to stay on vacation!

Old jails are getting a sudden new lease on life, coming back as hotels!

It's an idea that's taken off around the world as a way to repurpose old buildings.

Here in the United States, visitors to Boston can stay at the Old Charles Street Jail, which is now the Liberty Hotel.

London is the latest city considering this concept, as more than 30 old prisons will be closed as a part of the city's plan to create prisons that can hold up to 3,000 prisoners at a time.
