The Star: Marilyn Monroe first stayed at the hotel when her modeling career began, posing on the hotel pool’s diving board for a suntan lotion ad. She subsequently frequented it throughout the rest of her short-lived career and always stayed in the same suite overlooking the pool.

The Haunting: You don’t need to try to find Marilyn’s old room. The sightings of her ghost are said to happen in a mirror near the elevators—a mirror that used to hang in her room.

Bonus Haunt: Actor Montgomery Clift is rumored to haunt his former ninth-floor suite—number 928—with reports of bugle playing and line-rehearsing heard in the halls just outside.
