  1. Used to stay at the Hotel Rex frequently in the 1990s. One night, I went to bed, locked thg he door and awoke to find my dress shoes missing. I called the front desk and reported it. They asked me to look outside my door. I did and there were my dress shoes freshly polished and wrapped up in a fancy bag.

  2. I don’t know what for certain haunts this place. I do know that I stayed there once with my family when I was 16 and had the unusual sensation that I was being watched in the hallway and I recollect having a very vivid dream where I was brought out the window and down the fire escape. There Is a huge quote from the Maltese falcon on a wall in the downstairs hallway and you definitely can feel that something is up with the place itself but you be the judge.
