Multiple paranormal sightings and experiences by guests of the hotel have concluded that the Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa is indeed haunted. Many who have spent the night at the hotel have reported paranormal happenings such as ghostly laughters and disembodied voices. It is claimed that Room 666 was deliberately renamed to Room 667 as guests have reported numerous strange activities in the room. The piano at lobby bar is also said to play by itself after midnight; it has since been removed to avoid causing any unnecessary hysteria.
Crescent Hotel was built in 1886 as a retreat for the rich and the famous. After falling into disuse for its sham ‘healing waters’, the building reopened in 1908 as Crescent College and Conservatory for Young Women and ran as a hotel during summer. In 1937, Norman G. Baker turned purchased the site and converted the building into a health resort named Baker Hospital.
