Coral Gables: The Tower


This is the tower of the Biltmore, one of two Moorish Giralda towers in the Miami area, an achitectural style brought from Spain to crown the majestic pseudo-Italianate palazzo. The first balcony from the bottom is the 13th floor, officially known as the Everglades Suite, but much better known as the Al Capone Suite, the gangster's very own personal room whenever he came to Miami. It is also supposed to be haunted, though for the price you pay per night, your own personal ghost is almost part of the package!

Quite a few, actually. The Biltmore is one of the most haunted places in Miami. The whole 9th floor, for example, is haunted by a number of ghosts, so much that they actually had to close the restaurant that used to be on that floor and move it to another. The 9th floor, during the 2nd World War, was a triage, and many wounded soldiers died there while waiting to be attended by doctors.
