3. 1408 (New York, USA)

Perhaps the name Hotel Dolphin and the secrets of room ‘1408’ sound more familiar to you. These tested the skepticism of the protagonist, a writer of horror stories. You never know maybe the sumptuous look of the Roosevelt Hotel will inspire you to take your artistic edge and write your own horror novel.
