This the hotel I wrote about attempting to visit, a few years ago, and was warned away.
It does look beautiful. If you stay bring them sage lol.Here's an update. I was horrified to find that the Blanche Hotel has been completely renovated, including the floor where the unsavory entity lingered:
Locally and nationally recognized for its historical and communal importance, The Blanche has remained a central hub of hospitality in Lake City for over 100 years. Today, you'll find a modern, comfortable facility featuring multi-use spaces to live, work, shop, celebrate, and experience.www.theblanche.com
