Tutwiler Hotel, Birmingham

The Tutwiler Hotel has only been used as lodging since 1986 but the building has stood for more than 100 years. It was built in 1913 as the Ridgely Apartments. says, "Perhaps one of the most well-known examples of haunted accommodation in Alabama is The Tutwiler Hotel in downtown Birmingham. This historic hotel is the home of a disruptive entity known only as 'the knocker.' It gets its name from the fact that when it appears up on the sixth floor and knocks loudly on the hotel room doors in the dead of night!"


Marshall House, Savannah

Marshall House opened in 1851 and "is probably one of the most well known haunted hotels in Georgia," says. The inn was used as a hospital three times in its history, "twice during the yellow fever epidemics in the 19th century and once in the Civil War," the website said. "It was shuttered for many years before being reopened as a hotel and ever since, guests have been reporting seeing ghostly children running around, faucets turning on by themselves and apparitions in the hallways."


Read House, Chattanooga

Read House was built in 1872 in downtown Chattanooga. It was completely restored in 1926.

Read House is reportedly haunted by the spirit of a murdered woman. says, "If you want to meet the ghost of Annalisa Netherly then book into room 311, but be warned you might never sleep again as Annalisa wails and gnashes her teeth at anyone unlucky enough to see her. Annalisa was caught with another man by her husband who killed her in a fit of passionate rage, now she takes it out on unsuspecting guests at the Read House Hotel."
