If I remember it correctly this one is of a "well-known" murderer:
Here's one from a prison for attempted murders, drug dealers and violence related crimes:
This isn't the first one like this (it's a custody, but the prisons look similar), there has been several of these built during the last couple of years. Everyone has their own toilet with sink and mirror, 240 """cells""" in total, installed with flatscreens (videogames allowed) and design furnitures. (Northern) European governments talk about rehabilitation of prisoners, so basically that's the reason why it's so luxurious. Not really sure why they couldn't just get Ikea furnitures at least, and not that expensive crap.
There was a guy from Estonia last year, who came to Sweden and killed some random guy to be able to sit in these prisons. Not sure if they counted on that to happen when building these hotels.
Found this, top-5 luxurious prison cells:
In that link, there's some prison in California where you pay ~$100 a night to stay in (and it's still not as luxurious as this). Austria and Norway seem to have decent one's.
So, how does the American prisons look these days? In other European countries?
