Inn at the Old Jail
Get yourself locked up in the thriving heart of New Orleans in an histroic police jail, without the bother of committing a crime!
The Inn at the Old Jail is a grandly imposing building that's proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places, originally built as a police jail and patrol station back in 1902.
Modern-day ‘prisoners' can expect unique style and comfort from this striking Queen Anne structure, along with authentic touches including marble steps and original police memorabilia throughout.
Each of the Inn's nine rooms pay homage to the city's brave police staff, complete with original antiques and architectural details that tell captivating stories of courage. Indeed, this is a must-stay for history buffs.
If you're brave enough, try spending the night in The Cage! Once the setting for misbehaving teens, the room is now a chic and luxurious space with high ceilings, exposed bricks and floods of natural light.
You won't find any TVs in the rooms, as relaxation is encouraged. The communal area features a flat screen TV if you really must catch up on your favourite shows, or you've always got the option to head outside instead. The infamous French Quarter is close by, or how about sampling the delights of Bourbon Street instead?
If you're looking for an iconic American break, then getting yourself banged up in New Orleans may well be the best decision you ever make!
