Take no prisoners (anymore)
Hotel: Jailer's Inn, Bardstown, Kentucky
Description: For almost 200 years, this building functioned as the Nelson County Jail in Bardstown, Kentucky, now known as the "Bourbon Capital of the World." Today, Jailer's Inn graciously welcomes visitors with antique-decorated rooms. You also can opt to stay in "The Jail Cell," a black-and-white room with 2 stark bunks. But unlike a prisoner, you'll get a full breakfast (no, not gruel and moldy bread) and a private bath.
Rates: $100 to $155 per night depending on furnishings.
