This 1921 boutique hotel is supposed to be haunted by the apparition of a well-dressed man in an old-fashioned suit. Employees believe this is the ghost of a former butler, who has saved the building from demolition and despair on several occasions.

  1. We stayed there. When my wife took a shower the words ‘kill them’ were written backwards in the condensation on the mirror. This was followed by and extremely heavy feeling and unexplained scratches on my face.

    • We stayed there last night, the ceiling fan turned on by itself making a loud noise and the room instantly got freezing cold. What room did you stay in?
