Charles Mattingly and his wife Tina, who bought the property in $225,000 for 2001 are planning to keep the ghostly theme of the building during the $18 million renovation. The couple have lived on the property for the last year and have videos that show steaks of light and glowing orbs. The Real Waverly Hills website has a file dedicated to paranormal photos. There is also a slideshow with recent photos that show a building in need of some serious work.. The Mattinglys are planning an eco-friendly hotel with a solar-powered electric system, geothermal heating, a parking structure with a rooftop garden and floors made of either cork or recycled rubber. While the couple are hoping that the ghostly allure will attract some customers they are also hoping that the hotel will attract those who may not be aware of its spooky reputation.
