The story of he Renaissance Mayflower Hotel.

In Washington, D.C., there is a hotel known as the Renaissance Mayfair Hotel and in 1925 this hotel was the location of an inaugural ball that would be missing the guest of honor, President Calvin Coolidge. That year the President’s inaugural ball was held on March 4, 1925 however, the President’s son had just died tragically from blood poisoning and so, the President did not attend.

Today, the hotel sees some very strange things on Inauguration Day, which was changed to January 20 in 1937. Most of the events occur in the Grand Ballroom, as this was where the actual ball was held. The lights have been known to often flicker and dim at around 10:00p.m., which is when the guests of honor were introduced at the party on the night of the ball. The electrical outlets and circuits have all been checked and double-checked but no one can seem to find anything wrong with them. Some years, a plate of appetizers along with a glass of wine have also been left on the Grand Ballroom’s balcony, although current staff did not place it there and those items weren’t even served at the inauguration ball. Also on every January 20th, the elevator sits at the 8th floor and will not move to the lobby until 10:15p.m. It’s thought that this is because that would have been the time that President Coolidge would have gone from his room to the ball. President Coolidge is thought to be behind all of the strange occurrences that happen around the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel on Inauguration Day. Some like to say that the former President is still trying to make up for his absence at the party thrown in his honor.
