    Take a photo of the blocked stairwell on the 4th floor, if you have your camera on flash it will reveal the word RedRum scratched in the wood.

    The infamous mountain retreat where Stephen King stayed one snowy autumn in 1974 and was inspired to write his novel The Shining. The hotel is regarded to be haunted.

    Very gimmicky and over-priced. Most of the employees are grouchy and unfriendly. Oh and paid $500 for an upgraded experience only to find out there's no breakfast for people staying in main building.

    Tough Call. Pretty to look at, but because it's an old building, you can hear even the most normal conversation in your neighbor's room. Burned out by the endless tourist throng, staff manners suck.
