What a wonderful list! Heads right to the core of my wicked heart...I think I opt for the Hawthorne in Salem as a blend of one of my favorite authors and an ancestral haunt...so to speak.

I love the Hotel Del... the Duke and Duchess of Windsor stayed there... not ghosts, but boy did they upset the balance of things

The other two images look very creepy. If I'm on vacation, I wouldn't want to stay there
