As we get higher up in the hotel, there's a great view of Mineral Wells and the hills around town. Inside on the top floors, there's the Cloud Room, an old banquet hall, and the empty bell tower at the building's highest point. Before leaving, though, we all venture down into the hotel basement for a look at the darkest, spookiest spots the place has to offer.
