Now that spring has rolled around, the resorts in the Phoenix area are overflowing with spring breakers, tourists, snowbirds, and couples and families escaping that last bit of snow. On a slow going Saturday, Scott and I visited the San Marcos Hotel and Resort in downtown Chandler to enjoy a bit of the resort life. Built in 1912, the San Marcos was influenced by the design work of Frank Lloyd Wright, a close friend of the Dr. AJ Chandler who not only constructed the hotel, but was also the founder of the town that holds his namesake. Opening in 1913, the hotel housed the greatest celebrities of its time (and later), including Clark Gable, Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby, President Hoover and Christian Dior. Today, the hotel remains as busy as ever and is a popular spot to stay at in Chandler. It's also known as a local paranormal hot-spot, and throughout the years the hotel's staff has received phone calls from rooms and extensions that no longer exist, spotted a ghostly woman floating around the hotel, and heard moaning from empty areas of the building. If you're ever in the area, the San Marcos is certainly a place not to be missed!
Ok, I'm out after a long day of work and a very fun evening photoshoot with a few talented gals at another amazing resort!
Do you have any favorite local haunted spots in your area?
