On our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour we go on an investigation of the noir underbelly of Los Angeles – and enjoy cocktails in a couple of haunted hotels. First we visit the Biltmore Hotel, the last place the famous Black Dahlia, Elizabeth Short, was seen alive. Next we stop by the notorious Cecil Hotel – nicknamed the suicide hotel for reasons you’ll learn about on this tour. From there our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour goes to the once grand Alexandria Hotel, where Rudolph Valentino’s ghost still haunts the old penthouse, then the Barclay Hotel, temporary home to not one, but two, serial killers – and whose elevator is haunted by a headless apparition. After that we head to the Halls of Justice, the site of several dramatic trials, including the infamous Charles Manson’s, before finishing at the Los Angeles Pueblo, scene of the 1871 Chinatown Massacre, still the largest recorded mass lynching in American history. We may even see Pio Pico’s ghost in the window of Pico House (we have before). Join our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour and have sleepless nights for weeks!
