Renaissance Mayflower Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Renaissance Mayflower Hotel

This 1925 is known for its beautiful inlaid gold decor, and also for its resident ghost. When Calvin Coolidge won the U.S. presidency, he was expected to go to his Inaugural Ball at the Mayflower Hotel. However, his son Calvin Jr. had just died of an infection, and the devastated father stayed home. Since then, every January 20 strange things happen at around 10 p.m. The lights grow dim and flicker and the elevator does not move from the 8th floor until 10:15, when Coolidge would have left his room and gone down to the ball.
