Opened in 1921, the building has hosted many famous people, including John F. Kennedy, Al Capone and Tony Bennett. It was also the first hotel in the country to have a bathroom in every room.

The building has actually been featured on national TV shows for its rumored haunting -- such as TLC and The Travel Channel.

Hosts on Paranormal Lockdown spent 72 hours inside the building and caught a chair move on its own in the Terrace Room.
