5. The Hidden Hotel, located at 95 Washington St. in Canton, will be open this weekend for haunted fun. The tale goes that the hotel was once the setting for society’s most glamorous social affairs and home to some the area's wealthiest residents. That all changed one stormy night when one of the hotel's guest was found murdered and his daughter vanished. Now the decrepit hotel stands in ruins, haunted by what happened that stormy night many years ago. Hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. through Oct. 28. Price of admission is $18 per person. A portion of The Hidden Hotel proceeds will benefit Cops For Kids With Cancer.
