The historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is a four-star hotel located in Hollywood that boasts more than just a four-star price. Hotel Roosevelt opened its doors on May 15th, 1927, and since then it has been the oldest continually operating hotel in Los Angeles. The hotel was originally opened to cater to celebrities who were working on movies on the west coast. Notable guests include Charlie Chaplin, Shirley Temple and Marilyn Monroe. The Hotel's Blossom Room was the site of the first Academy Awards.

The Hotel Roosevelt is 12-stories high, with 300 guest rooms and 63 suites. The premise is haunted by a multitude of ghosts, two of which are known celebrities. Montgomery Clift haunts Room 928, the room he stayed in while filming From Here to Eternity. Most complaints are about him moving around the room and shifting occupants' luggage. Other hotel guests have seen him in the hallway rehearsing his lines for a movie or playing the trumpet.

Perhaps the most famous haunting of the Roosevelt is Marilyn Monroe. She is said to haunt the full-length mirror that was once in her suite. Since she stayed at the hotel, the mirror has been relocated from her room.

Room 213, however, is reported to be the most haunted room in the entire hotel. Many of the room's occupants check out in the middle of the night because of the obvious ghost activities in the room. A handful of people have reported seeing a headless apparition coming towards them, while others complained of the television and sink getting turned on and off on their own.

According to hotel guests, some of the ghosts haunting the halls were "poor" when they were alive. As they could not afford to stay at the hotel when they were alive, they came back to haunt it.

With all the supposed hauntings, it is a wonder that the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has stayed in business all these years. They must be doing something right, as people just can't stay away.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.

views

On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
