Originally the “San Marcos Hotel,” this has now been bought and sold several times until it became the Crowne Plaza San Marcos. The hotel was originally built in 1913 for $100,000, and hosted such luminaries as Herbert Hoover, Joan Crawford and Fred Astaire.
Locals know it as a paranormal hot-spot, and staffer swear they receive internal phone calls from rooms and extensions that no longer exist. The ghost of a woman floats down certain areas of the hotel, and moaning can sometimes be heard from supposedly empty areas of the building.
