The Plaza opened originally as “The Clarendon” in 1888, but was destroyed by fire in 1909. It went back up in 1911 and was renamed to “The Plaza” many years afterward.
In 2013 the hotel made a bit of a stir on the local news after security cameras picked up… something… maybe a ghost, maybe a bug?… around their Veranda Bar and Grille. Staff claim there have been other weird experiences – doors that aren’t locked are pulled tight by unseen hands until, inexplicably, they suddenly open with ease, as if someone had just let go on the other side. It is said that one guest died in room 1111, and this room is particularly active as a result.
