Notoriously Haunted Hollywood Landmarks

The Roosevelt Hotel

Hotels are often the preferred hangouts for dead celebrities, with the most infamous being the Roosevelt Hotel. The Roosevelt opened in 1927 and has a long history of catering to the glitterati, cementing its luxurious reputation with the first ever Academy Awards in 1929. Apparently Marilyn Monroe, Errol Flynn and Montgomery Clift felt so at home here they decided to stick around in the afterlife. The hotel hosts weird paranormal occurrences such as orbs, strange noises, cold spots and manifestations of unknown spirits. If you want a quiet night, don’t book room 928 as Clift’s ghost allegedly haunts it and paces around the ninth-floor corridors playing a trumpet or practicing lines.

Marilyn Monroe lived in Suite 246 for a few years during her rise to fame and she has been spotted there and around the pool where her first photo shoot took place. Her image is also said to appear in a full-length mirror which has since been removed from the room, but that hasn’t stopped witnesses seeing her reflection in it. Other sightings have been witnessed including actress Carole Lombard, wife of Clark Gable, who has been spotted on the 12th floor where she and Gable often stayed. Bizarrely, their suite gives off a strong sexual energy, but presumably that’s not based on scientific fact.
