Where you were once only allowed one phone call, a bologna sandwich and a rock hard bunk bed, you’re now pampered with concierge service, decadent dishes, and the coziest of accommodations. Gone are the dark days of detaining criminals, as today these former prisons are hosting travelers from around the world in their new life as luxury hotels.
