    The 3rd, 7th, 9th, 11th and 12th floors are haunted. Hotel used to be a hospital and psychiatric facility. Elevator sometimes gets stuck in the basement- which was the morgue.

    Amazing service and rooms. Everyone says that it is cracking and stuff like that but I have stayed here two times and have not gotten a bad room or service.

    We stayed on the 9th floor which is suppose to be one of the haunted floors and our spa kept turning on in the middle of the night. Next morning our clock radio sounded and the alarm wasn't even set.

    Next time someone asks me where hotel heaven is, I'm telling them the 14th floor at Emily Morgan... The hotel rooms, service, location.... Awesome!

    You'll love this hotel for three reasons: good prices, great food and amazing views. · September 10, 2012

    Ground level bathrooms are not air conditioned. The cool jazz doesn't do much to cool in the summer.

    Rooms r okay, unless you want to pay more than you originally booked for....BEWARE: Read copious fineprint. Boutique hotel? Right...lots of 2 star examples.....14 mins to valet park ($28) OVERRATED!

    Ask the hotel staff if they like the movie "The Shining"

    Do your self a favor. Don't stay here! It is a wast of money. Everything is old, I don't say "historically old" it's in bad condition. I got this on price line and I will not stay here again.

    Unique terracotta gargoyles depict various ailments, reflecting the 1920s building's medical past. Creepy cool.

    Within walking distance of most major attractions downtown

    Hotel is suppose to be haunted but what scared me was the two charges of $28.11 for parking. We're here for only one night and less than 24 hours yet they charged for two days parking still.

    The hot tube is extremly hot and the pool stays cold!

    cool old hotel with renovated rooms (but bathrooms are older). Try a bloody mary at the bar.
