The Oldest Hotel In San Francisco Is Also The Most Haunted

San Francisco’s oldest hotel has an illustrious, haunted, and colorful past. The Palace Hotel opened in 1875, but fire destroyed the original structure after the 1906 earthquake. It was quickly rebuilt and has since seen several celebrities and world leaders stay here. In fact, some have even died here, including President Warren Harding. With such a history it seems only appropriate that it would be a favorite spot for ghosts to linger in. And though it may not be the President gliding through the hallways, there has certainly been plenty of paranormal activity reported at this historic hotel.
