Who doesn’t like a good story about a haunted house, right? But what if those stories were closer to real people than we all thought and you, yourself, had the chance to witness some unusual activity? Hotels are those amazing places that draw not only people, but spirits as well! Some of them are neutral; others are quite aggressive and can scare people to death. Would you like to spend the night in a hotel like this? Here are 10 stories that will send shivers down your spine.
Place D’Arms Hotel, New Orleans
Place D’Arms Hotels is not on the list of haunted hotels, but it should be! Built on top of a schoolhouse that burned to the ground, not many people have experienced sightings there. One TripAdvisor traveller described her ‘visit’ – during the night she felt that someone came to her bed and got in, moving the covers. The woman was scared out of her mind!
The Marshall House, Savannah
The Marshall House has a long history of being a hospital – first time during the Civil War, and second time during the yellow fever epidemics. Dozens of guests have had weird encounters and ghost experiences. One woman woke up to a loud whirring noise that almost made her jump, others have seen faucets turning on by themselves. Sounds of children running around the hallway are often heard in the hotel, but there are no kids around.
The Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff
It’s a dreadful thing to die on your wedding day, but that’s exactly what happened to the young bride that was getting married in the Fairmont Banff. No one knows the exact reason of her death, only that she fell from the stairs. Many people state they’ve seen her in the ballroom waiting for her first dance, or walking around the hallway in her wedding gown. She’s become a real legend in Canada!
The Mizpah, Tonopah
Rumor has it that at the turn of the 20th century a prostitute was killed in the Mizpah hotel. Also known as the Lady in Red, she can still be heard (and sometimes seen!) in the hotel. One of the ‘encounters’ happened on the 4th floor – visitors heard voices behind closed doors, but when they opened them, there was no one in the room.
