This mammoth upscale 1930 hotel is home to its fair share of haunts. In 1930, a rich family, one of the hotel’s finiancial backers, moved into Room 864. Reports say that one night their nanny awoke feeling ill, suddenly collapsed, and died. A few days later their adopted daughter Helen died suddenly in the suite as well, some speculate as a suicide. Since then, mysterious things have been known to happen in that suite. TVs and lights turn on by themselves around 4 a.m., the time when the nanny died. Loud noises come from the suite when it is unoccupied, and guests have witnessed an eerie presence there. Called the Ghost Suite, this room is reported to $3000 a night.
