The Ghosts of Hollywood
Guests in these hotels always share a room—even if they're staying alone. Ghosts inhabit these locations that were used for filming to entertain, visit, and scare guests of the hotel.
- The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO was the inspiration for Stephen King's famous novel The Shining. In 1973, King and his wife checked into the hotel for a one night stay as the only guests on the property. Some of the hotel's eternal guests include owners F.O and Flora Stanley with reports that you can hear Flora playing the piano from the hotel's music room. Rooms from $237 per night.*
- Hotel Del Coronado, which was established in 1888, served as the famous setting of the Marilyn Monroe film, Some Like It Hot. The other famous leading lady of the hotel is the resident ghost, Kate Morgan. Her third-floor guestroom is one of the most requested rooms for visitors hoping for a sighting or ghostly encounter. However, Kate's been known to frequent the hotel gift shop. Rooms from $309 per night.*
- Stay on Main in Los Angeles, CA, formerly known as Cecil Hotel, served as the inspiration for horror television series American Horror Story: Hotel after strange video footage led to the disappearance and death of a young girl in 2013.
