Is The Roosevelt Hotel haunted?

It is not yet clear if the Roosevelt Hotel is really haunted. However, many diners and guests have reported having paranormal experiences.

We like to think that if the Sazerac Bar or any of the rooms are haunted, they might be haunted with the spirit of some of the famous people that enjoyed the Big Easy within its walls.

The list of famous guests of the hotel includes Sonny and Cher, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrch, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly. Will you drink next to a celebrity spirit? One thing is clear, The Roosevelt has seen it all!
