Thank you so much for sharing your experience here with me, Lauren! Grand piano of the haunted Providence Biltmore Hotel. The Biltmore is where “It Happened One Night” (1934) set a record by sweeping the Oscars’ top honors, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor and Best Actress. After going out to dinner we returned to the hotel and took photos and videos inside the lobby. I’m super flattered too. I really admire you and home to be like you some day! Luckily, this is a perfect spot to ensure just that. But don’t worry—they don’t want to bring you harm. At a time when this area was still evolving and finding its identity, the arrival of the opulent Millennium Biltmore Hotel in 1923 was a "statement to the rest of the world that Los Angeles had arrived as an American metropolis." My gf, on the other hand, had a hard time sleeping that night. It is an awesome place with some pretty creepy ghost stories. Shortly before her death in 1947 Elizabeth Short was sighted at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel’s bar. One man claims to have rode the elevator with this lady in black, only to see her disappear when they reached level six. Many reports of a lady with dark hair, wearing a black dress in 1940’s fashion have been made at the Hotel. The Millennium Biltmore Hotel opened its doors for the first time in 1923. Short, as you may remember, is the given name of the woman known as the Black Dahlia—perhaps the most iconic unsolved murder mystery in Hollywood. I know more than I should about the Black Dahlia murder than a thirteen-year-old probably should, but it’s just so interesting. Countless sightings of a little girl have been made and many others have heard her footsteps hurriedly running along the corridors of floor 9, as well as her disembodied, playful giggling. The Biltmore’s allure was strong for the studios and starlets of vintage Hollywood. This is one of the last places she was seen alive before entering the infamy of becoming the Black Dahlia murder. I felt a haunted chill the second I walked in. In one photo there is a mirror in the background and where he is standing he does not reflect in the mirror. Both are luxe and lavish with Hollywood pedigrees…and both, it’s safe to say, are supremely haunted. Follow Amy's Journey: I also want to visit this hotel and Elizabeth short sound really cool to study about in my 8th grade class I think my teacher and friends would like it to I wish that my dad could take me one day it would be fun, Posted by LAUREN OWENS on December 31, 2019. Then it was time to go to bed. I explored and had a great time. The murder captured the attention of the public, remains one of California’s most recognized unsolved crimes and ignited Black Dahlia ghost stories with the Millennium Biltmore Hotel at the epicenter. Elizabeth Short’s body was later discovered dumped on an empty lot of land, completely drained of blood, naked, mutilated and cut completely in half by an incision dividing her torso. He was shocked to pick up a true crime book in a store a few days later and recognize the ghost from the elevator as Elizabeth Short. It’s no wonder why countless staff have refused and fear working late shifts at the hotel. Def a spirit haunting us!

Upon checking in, my gf and I felt like we were not alone. Basically, thank you for writing these interesting articles and informing all of us on these historical places! Luckily I am a deep sleeper so I was able to get a restful night’s sleep. I recently was reviewing photos from a trip I had taken. My gf, on the other hand, might need a little convincing…. The luxurious destination was built to cater for Los Angeles’ high society, yet served many different purposes throughout its life time. Most notably, especially when discussing old Hollywood, the ghost of Elizabeth Short on the 10th and 11th floors, as well as the lobby. I stayed here last year for my birthday in room 1054. The property is beautiful, no doubt, but also a little wistful, as if the hotel itself wanted to step back into time, into its glorious, golden, star-studded heyday. Your website got me hooked on the building and the history behind it. Within its first year, it was already a shooting location for DeMille’s 1924 film, “Triumph.” It was also featured in films and shows that nod to the past, including “Ocean’s 11” (1960), “The Sting” (1973), “Chinatown” (1974), and “Bugsy” (1991) as well as “Mad Men.” The hotel also hosted the opening party for the iconic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre (now known as the TCL Chinese Theatre); is where the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) was born (in 1927 at a gathering in the hotel’s Crystal Ballroom); and is allegedly where MGM’s great production designer Cedric Gibbons is said to have sketched the first Oscar statue (on one of the hotel’s linen napkins). If you do stay in Los Angeles are are looking for other haunted places to check out around town, look no further. As the hotel prepares to celebrate its 100th anniversary, guests can still feel that old Hollywood glamour from the moment they enter the glittering, golden lobby. It is always cool to hear from other people who have stayed in this hotel and even better to know that you had some strange experiences there of your own. My first stop was at the Biltmore and I loved everything about the hotel.

Shortly before her death in 1947 Elizabeth Short was sighted at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel’s bar. I was at the bar and there appears in a few pictures a ghostly image of a bartender….as in he was completely transparent. It is so cool to hear this, nice work! Now, needless to say, a place with this much pedigree, that’s this tied to Hollywood, would have its share of Hollywood ghosts. To sum it all up, if you’re an old Hollywood aficionado, this hotel is a must. We had stayed on the tenth floor. Wow! That is not to say they don’t happen, they’ve even been documented via Tripadvisor reviews! Let me know in the comments below if you’ve had any strange or unexplainable hotel experiences. Thanks so much for reading and leaving me a comment, Andrea! It’s a great theory.
