In the spirit of the spookiest time of the year, one of America’s most haunted hotel rooms has just reopened for the first time since a $28 million makeover. The Read House in Chattanooga, Tennessee is home to room 311, which has a grisly past. It involved a woman named Annalisa Netherly who was brutally killed by her lover during the 1920s. The room has since been said to be haunted by a female spirit who "hates men, particularly those who smoke." Over the years, guests have encountered bouts of paranormal activity in the room, including unexplained noises, running water, flickering lights, and of course, shadowy figures. The Read House recently completed a complete renovation, including features to keep the hotel's most famous guest comfortable. Room 311 has been restored to its 1920s glory and contain no modern amenities. Room 311 looks and feels like Annalisa’s room in the 1920s. There is an AM radio that does not work, a vintage claw foot tub, an original pull chain toilet, antique furnishings and distressed hardwood floors, just like it would have been in the early twentieth century. A stay in the room will set you back $666 for the package, which includes an overnight stay, valet parking, a decanter of gin, breakfast and $100 dining credit at the hotel’s Bridgeman’s Chophouse restaurant. For those less enthused by sleeping spooky, the hotel offers free daily tours of the room.
