Tamae Watanabe, an experienced mountaineer with several Mount Everest climbing experiences, made it up the almost six miles to the summit. Fortunately, she did the successful climb with no serious problems.

Boston, MA: Spend The Night In The Hoosegow PDF Print E-mail

For a unique Halloween, marriage, divorce, retirement or any other celebration while in Beantown, consider sleeping in a spooky former city jail. From the 1850s until a couple of decades ago, the imposing building complex, now the Liberty Hotel, was definitely not the place to spend any nights, days or years.

However, today the old jail is totally remodeled into fantastic interiors, 208 comfy rooms with luxury bathrooms, along with four fine dining and drinking (including the Clink) facilities. Those guests with creative cameras can book one of 19 rooms that still retain their cell block and iron bar facades.

Rates from $299, Liberty Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel,  165 Charles St., Boston MA 02114, www.libertyhotel.com
