Many celebrities have stayed at the Landmark Inn including the Rolling Stones.
It was first existed in the minds of planners in 1910, and opened on January 8, 1930.
One online site states the legend of the weeping woman haunting the hotel and another stated that the Landmark Inn has “exquisite European inspired rooms and modern amenities.”
By the way, no ghosts were reported injured. I suppose the ghosts can never be ruled out as the suspect or suspects who turned on the burner. Or maybe the ghost was on the paperwork brigade.
Clever ghost crime though, because it will likely be blamed on a human.
No ghost speculation from MFD.
