If ghosts and spirits are your jam, and you’re looking to run into the most famous of them all – we’re talking royalty and celebs – we’ve rounded up three of the most famed haunted hotels in the world for you to pay a visit to. Flickering lights, malfunctioning elevators, and hallway howls await!
The Hollywood Roosevelt, Los Angeles
Modeliser and starstruck party animal with big ego, and rumoured to be literally ‘haunted’ with Marilyn sightings. Hockney pool (avoid on weekends), buzzy Tropicana bar, A-list Teddy’s club, and 25 Degrees for more meat.

The Bowery Hotel, New York
Handsome buck whose dark, hunting lodge-as-lobby bar, Moroccan tiles and bucolic Italian Gemma contrast with airy, light-flooded and spacious suites. Rumour is, the resident spirits love to hang out in the elevators, which go up and down for no reason at 1am every night.

The Langham, London
Dating back to 1865, The Langham in London is the historical hotel of choice for celebrities, royals and yes, even the undead. The most famous of them all? Emperor Napoleon III, who lived at the Langham during his last days in exile and now haunts unsuspecting guests from the hotel basement.
