Book a room at The Seelbach Hilton Louisville located in the heart of the city’s historic downtown. This grand, pet-friendly property was the setting for the fictional wedding of Tom and Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.” The Seelbach's ghost story begins with a real-life wedding in the early 1900s when a bride, wearing a blue dress, discovers that her groom has been tragically killed in an automobile accident on the way to the hotel for their wedding. The bride, overcome with grief, commits suicide by throwing herself down the elevator shaft. The Lady in Blue, as the spirit of the doomed bride is now known, haunts the hotel. Guests have reported the lingering smell of her phantom perfume, and they also have seen her walking down the halls before she vanishes into the closed elevator doors.
If you don't catch a glimpse of the Lady in Blue, try your supernatural luck on a dog-friendly ghost tour with Amerighost Louisville Haunted Ghost Tour. You'll learn about the city’s other haunted hotspots like the Brown Hotel and Palace Theatre. The Seelbach Hilton Louisville welcomes two pets up to 75 pounds for an additional fee of $50 per stay. Nightly rates start at $197.
