The Victoria Inn in Anniston, Alabama was once a beautiful mansion that has been transformed into one of the best places to stay in Anniston Alabama. It’s been converted into The Hotel Finial, a restaurant and hotel. Reports of the piano being played and footsteps in the main part of the building have scared more than a few visitors. Sometimes the glasses hanging in the bar clink, and a woman has been spotted on the upstairs landing. A real jewel of Alabama, the Victoria Inn is one of the top choices of travellers including famous celebrities.
