The Creepiest Places You Can Stay Overnight In America

The Hay-Adams Hotel: Washington, D.C.


This infamous Washington, D.C. hotel has a long history of haunting. Clover Adams, the wife of President John Adams’ descendent Henry Adams, took her own life at the Hay-Adams hotel in 1885. She now reportedly haunts the fourth floor by turning clocks on and off, and opening unlocked doors. Housekeepers on staff have reported her calling them by name or crying softly in the stairwell. Most sightings happen around the anniversary of her death, during the first two weeks of December. In 2009, President Obama braved a stay with First Lady, Michelle and Sasha and Malia right before his inauguration.
