The Read House is offering up its infamously haunted Room 311 for select dates in October for those brave enough to book. These upcoming dates will be the only time this year the room will be available for the public to stay.

Room 311 not only housed Al Capone on his way to Federal prison, but was also the site of the grizzly death of a woman named Annalisa Netherly. Some say she was murdered in the bathtub by a former lover, while others contend she died by suicide after a fit of jealous rage.

Some say that Annalisa has taken up residence in the room that was the scene of her death, with guests reporting such things as flickering lights, unexplained noises, apparitions and water running in the bathroom.

The hotel, not wanting to upset its most well-known guest, restored the room with everything you would imagine from the 1920s: AM radio, pull-chain toilet, antique furniture and even a clawfoot tub. The one thing guests won’t find in the room, however, is a television.

If you’re ready to bunk with Annalisa for the night, the experience isn’t cheap. The single-night stay will run you $666. That rate does include valet parking, a decanter of bathtub gin, two Annalisa cocktails in the hotel bar, and if you make it through the night, room service for breakfast.
