Waverly Hills Sanatorium into a Hotel?

Waverly Hills Sanatorium is the famous former tuberculosis hospital located in south Louisville, Kentucky where an estimated 60,000 people have died. For the past few years it has been mainly visited by ghost hunters, even The Ghost Hunters from the Sci-Fi channel made a visit last Halloween.
Now there is talk of creating a fancy hotel out of the mammoth building. Construction may begin soon and Charlie Mattingly, the owner, thinks construction could finish in 2010. It will indeed be a massive undertaking.
I have never been to the former sanatorium, but I sure would like to take one of their tours. It is such a creepy place due to its enormous size and the death tunnel. You can go the Waverly Hills Sanatorium website for its history and other information.
