    1. I am a paranormal investigator my crew and I were thinking about investigating that place we just need to find out where we need to go to ask permission to investigate. we are called R.D.A.A Paranormal Investigators Unleashed. If we catch anything or any kind of footage I would definitely write back on here to let all of y’all know about our investigation.

    2. I am a very big skeptic but my friends and I stayed one night in the FDR suite and had a few unexplained things happen to us. one incident happened that may sound like I’m crazy still has me questioning it.

      • If you look in the left corner where there is a white spot, you can see what appears to be a face? Seconds before I snapped this photo I had asked a question out loud “If there is a spirit in this room, will you appear in this picture I am about to take” ironic? What do you think?

    3. When I was younger, around 13-14, my parents and I stayed here. My dad usually always stayed here before he flew offshore for work. This one time my mom and I went with them and I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. While I was in there, the bath tub tiles were glowing pink. I wiped my eyes thinking I was just seeing things but when I left they were glowing brighter. I told my mom about it but she didn’t believe me.

      EMF meter went from 42 to 180 when I was setting up WiFi access point behind Tarpon Inn at Eleanor’s. No electrical wiring near meter, and no power was running to WiFi unit yet. Got a strange feeling just before meter jumped.
