Redmont Hotel - Birmingham

The Redmont Hotel in downtown Birmingham is 14 stories tall and opened in 1925, making it the oldest still-operational hotel in town. After decades of decline, the hotel was purchased in 1983 by an investment group made up of NBA players, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Ralph Sampson. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 27 of that year. A $7 million dollar renovation led to a grand re-opening in 1985. Another refurbishment in 2000 uncovered previously hidden architectural details and cleaned the exterior.

Haunted Places near Birmingham
Many believe this hotel downtown is haunted by a woman in white. Her apparition has been seen on the ninth floor, and some claim there is even a ghost of a dog that wanders the hallways. When the doors are heard opening and closing on their own and luggage bumping around, could it be the ghost of Clifford Stiles, the former owner? The hotel has recently gone through drastic renovations, and will reopen for business any day now.
