Plenty of hotels offer those fun revolving restaurants on the top floor (one of our favorites happens to be the one at Marriott Marquis Times Square, but Hyatt Regency Houston might be the only place we know that got sued when a 4-year-old accidentally got her foot caught in the rotating floor. Eesh.
#3: Hilton Amsterdam.
Located in the Oud-Zuid district of Amsterdam, this 55-year-old hotel has a rather interesting history. For starters, John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their infamous "Bed-In For Peace" here in 1969 (in suite 902). Lucky? Unlucky? Who's to say…But most definitely unlucky are the several deaths that have all occurred at or around the hotel, such as drug lord Klaas Bruinsma's murder in 1991, or artist Herman Brood's suicide by jumping from the roof of the hotel in 2001.
#2: W Austin.
This hotel suffered through a few "technical difficulties" back in 2011 when glass windows began free falling from the 36-story building. After not one, not two, but three separate incidents, the hotel was forced to shut down for 11 days and work on re-installing its 1,000+ balcony fixtures to stop the glass-shedding once and for all.
#1: The Beverly Hilton.
In 2012, the unlucky Bev Hilton managed to endure two tragedies within just six months of each other: first, Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub on the fourth floor. Then, in June, death visited the hotel again when a middle-aged couple plunged to their deaths in a mysterious murder-suicide incident that took place hours before the Daytime Emmy Awards were about to take place at the hotel.
