Queen Mary, Long Beach, CA

The Property: Why stay on land when you can be haunted at sea? This ship-turned-floating hotel lets guests stay in its famous staterooms and commune with spirits of celebrated past passengers, such as Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, and Winston Churchill.

Chill Factor: Spectral spirits (think: the figure of a woman in a 1930s bathing suit) have been sighted on the ship from the engine room to the first-class pool.
