CNN has a great piece on hotel rooms where historic events took place. Above is the Stanley Hotel in Colorado, which inspired Stephen King to write The Shining after staying there:
Considered one of the United States’ most haunted hotels, it was built by F. O. Stanley in 1909 on a mountainside in Estes Park, some 2,286 meters above sea level.
Many ghostly children have reportedly been heard playing up and down the hall of the 4th floor — just like those twins in the movie — while the late Mrs. Stanley’s shade favors the Music Room. Room 401 is said to have been haunted for 80 years by Lord Dunraven, but the spookiest room of all is room 217, where King himself stayed.
