This hotel was built in 1923 and designed by famous architect
William Lee Stoddart. Presidents
JFK and Harry S. Truman have stayed at the hotel in the past. There have been a number of music and
movie stars who have stayed at the hotel over the years. Interestingly, the horror film New
Terminal Hotel starring Corey Haim (if you can call him a star), was filmed
here. In 2010, local firefighters
discovered what they thought was the most grisly murder in Washington in over
35 years. About 8 hours was spent
investigating before authorities discovered it was leftover from the film.
