  1. From Sinatra, Elvis, and Star Trek The Experience - the Hilton has always provided some great entertainment. Tragedy has hit with the death of 8 people in a fire started by Phillip Cline - a pyromaniac just a few months after the MGM Fire. This leads to ghost stories. The most famous is the ghost of Elvis around the back stage area. It has been reported that the sound of coughing has been heard on several floors. This is believed to be the spirits of people who died during the fire.
