As I travel writer sometimes I ignore special experiences in my own backyard . . . but not yesterday when I was invited by a friend to tour The Del. Here are just a few tidbits about the 126 year old hotel: Chandeliers of the historic Crown Room were designed by L. Frank Baum, author of the Wizard of Oz; Otis Elevator Company's 61, 62 and 63 elevators are in the hotel; its resident ghost, Kate Morgan, stayed in room 307 (today's room #3327).
