Long Description:
This hotel was the nation's largest beach resort when it opened in 1888. This hotel has been the vacation spot for celebrities and politicians, has been the site for several films and books, and is located on one of America's finest beaches in the posh San Diego neighbor community of Coronado.
In 1892, a woman checking in as Kate Morgan committed suicide here.
According to this website (visit link) , Morgan's ghost seems to be jealous of the attention that Marilyn Monroe gets here (Monroe's film "Some Like It Hot" was filmed here)..and the ghost constantly flings Monroe-related items from the gift shop shelves.
The Hotel sells a book based on the story (visit link)
and this website reports that it has found new evidence (visit link)
