The Congress Hotel, Chicago’s most notoriously haunted luxury hotel, boasts 871 guest rooms with posh and luxurious accommodations across from Grant Park at 520 S. Michigan Ave. Its most profound notoriety, however–or at least at this time of year–is its claim as one of the most haunted spaces in the entire city of Chicago. 

Watch closely as William Murphy dissects the ghosts and haunted spirits at the Congress, which has housed presidents, celebrities, performers, and foreign dignitaries.
