Congress Plaza Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Congress Plaza Hotel

This is one of those hotels that is so old and has so much history floating around it that there are practically as many ghost stories as there are room. The Al Capone one (where people claim to see him waking the halls) however is one that is certainly not accurate, he never stayed there and he definitely didn’t die there. If you are looking for a haunted room experience, apparently room 441 is the one to try, numerous guests have reported a shadowy figure of a woman in their room.

    1. My dad took me there to stay for my 8th grade graduation. While walking by myself to get ice, it felt like someone was watching and following Me. There was long skinny hallways they felt wierd. We had a wierd thing on our wall, almost like a covered door. Beautiful hotel, but it feels wierd being there.
