The Seelbach has a rich history and is included on the National Register of Historic Places.

F. Scott Fitzgerald frequented the hotel while stationed at Camp Taylor to drink bourbon and smoke cigars. He used the Seelbach as the backdrop for Tom and Daisy's wedding reception in "The Great Gatsby."

The hotel was also a favorite of legendary gangster Al Capone.

His favorite room has two hidden doors behind special panels, which lead to secret passageways.
