Famous folks such as Al Capone and Woodrow Wilson stayed at this 1927 swank establishment, and it is from one of its windows that Adolph Coors of brewery fame jumped to his death in the 1929. Also, the previous owner is said to have shot himself in the hotel. Reports say that an elderly African-American gentleman stands watch at the top of the sixth floor to dissuade people from climbing up there. “You don’t want to go up there. There’s ghosts up there,” he says. There is also a ghost cat that is said to rile the guests.
