Opened in 1910, the Hermitage Hotel was the third skyscraper to be built in downtown Nashville. The interior design remains breathtaking to this day, but one thing they won't tell you at check-in is that this upscale hotel is haunted.
The most interesting story involves a crying infant. Legend says that a baby died in the hotel and the baby's spirit remains to this day. The sound happens in Room 912, which once was Room 910. When someone gets up to find the source of the sound, it stops. Sometimes the ghost of a woman is seen trying to soothe the baby.
Guests have also reported seeing a lady in white in different areas of the hotel, as well as a woman dressed in Victorian clothing on the first floor. Others have reported seeing a young girl standing on one of the balconies on the top floor:
Another interesting story involves a mirror in the lobby. Guests have reported seeing a crack form at the top of the mirror, only to mend itself as they watched.
