Top 10 Haunted Hotels in the United States

Haunted Stanley Hotel

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado
The Stanley Hotel is a 138-room Georgian hotel located within sight of the Rocky Mountain National Park. The Stanley offers panoramic views of the Rockies. It was built in 1909 by Freelan O. Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame and catered to the rich and famous. If you are a Stephen King fan, request room 217. It was in this room that King, inspired by the hotel, wrote half of "The Shining." Room 418 gets the most reports of haunting activity apparently from children’s spirits. More Info


Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas
A number of rooms are haunted in this historic hotel. Room 218 is the spot where Michael, an Irish stonemason, landed when he fell from the hotel's roof during construction. His ghost is said to bang on the walls and turn the lights and television on and off. Rooms 202 and 424 are also said to be haunted. Outside of the Recreation Room, the ghost of Dr. Norman Baker often appears, looking a bit confused. He ran a controversial hospital and health resort in the building during the 1930s.

Bullock Hotel in Deadwood, South Dakota
The hotel was founded by Seth Bullock, Deadwood's first sheriff, and he has never left. His ghost walks the halls. Bullock was sheriff in the 1870s and died here in 1919 but was never really laid to rest. He was the sheriff "whose gaze could stop fights." Since then, nearly three dozen people have seen his ghost. These include guests, employees, and managers of the hotel.

Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, California

Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, California
The room that Kate Morgan checked into was 302, which is now room 3312. But that is not the only haunted room. Room 3502, which was once a maid's room, is also considered haunted. Both rooms have experienced oddly functioning electrical equipment and cold breezes. Maids report that objects are moved around by unseen hands. Guests in the rooms have experienced oppressive feelings and curtains that move even though the windows are closed. Other people swear they have heard murmurings coming from somewhere in the room. Kate's ghost has been seen walking down hallways of the hotel and standing at windows.

Landmark Inn - Marquette, MI

The Historic and Haunted Landmark Inn - Marquette, Michigan
The Northland Hotel was first conceived around 1910. The foundation was started in 1917, but the hotel itself did not open until January 8, 1930. It operated as a full service hotel with over 100 rooms until the 1970's. Because previous owners had not updated the hotel over the years, it fell into disrepair, and closed in 1982. In 1995 a major renovation and restoration project started. Everything in the hotel has been refurbished from floors to ceilings. Amelia Earhart stayed in room 502 in 1932. The Landmark Inn rooms were numbered, based on the actual room she stayed in. We have named the room, THE AMELIA EARHART ROOM.   More Info


Jerome Grand Hotel

The Haunted Jerome Grand Hotel - Jerome, Arizona
Jerome Grand Hotel is a Spanish Mission style building, constructed in 1926, started out as the United Verde Hospital, opening January, 1927. In 1930, it was written up as the most modern and well equipped hospital in Arizona and possible the Western States. The Hospital was closed in 1950 as the mine operation was being phased out. The building stood unused for the next 44 years until the rehabilitation plans started in 1994. More Info


Jekyll Island Club Georgia

Jekyll Island Club Hotel off the coast of Georgia
The Jekyll Island Club flourished into the 1930s, but world events took their toll. With the advent of World War I, several members offered their personal yachts to the war effort. The Great Depression began to change people’s priorities, and in two year’s time, half the Club’s membership dropped away. The final blow to the life of the Club, however, was World War II and the threat of enemy submarines just off the coast, inducing the U.S. government’s order to evacuate the island. The Club’s president hoped to reopen, but in 1947 the state of Georgia entered the picture, buying the entire island  in order to it  t into a public state park. More Info

The Haunted Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado
The hotel was built by Jerome B. Wheeler, at the time co-owner of Macy's during its early boom years. Mr. Wheeler wanted the city to have a hotel that equaled European ones in its refinements and amenities. It was the only hotel to remain open through the city's "quiet years" in the early 20th century, as a family business run by a former bartender and his son that often served as the town's social center. At one point it was also used as a temporary morgue; there are claims the building is haunted.   More Info

More Haunted Hotels in the United States and the World 

Hawthorne Hotel - 18 Washington Square West, Salem, MA
The hotel is located on the Common which was the focus of the dreadful witch hunts. Over 200 people died during the witch trials. Many of them may in fact now be residing in this hotel.  
Landmark Inn - Lake Superior, Michigan
Around the time the hotel first opened in 1930 on the shores of Lake Superior, a librarian in town fell in love with a sailor. He was to make one last journey before coming home to marry her, but the ship and crew never returned. The librarian is said to still haunt the Lilac Room, which has a view of Lake Superior. She is believed to be watching for her sailor's return. 
Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza - 35 W. Fifth Street, Cincinnati, OH 
During the hotel's construction in the 1930s, one of the laborers was killed. His body was never found. "The Lady in Green" has been seen in the Mezzanine level and the Hall of Mirrors.  It is believed that she is the widow of the construction worker who died, and her restless spirit seeks his body.
The Menger Hotel - 204 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, TX   
One night after an argument with her husband, Sallie White, a chambermaid at The Menger Hotel in San Antonio, stayed at the hotel (presumably with another man). The next day her husband threatened to kill her. On March 28, 1876, Sallie was attacked by her husband and she died two days later. The hotel paid for the funeral cost of $32, as recorded in the hotel ledger. Legend has it that Sallie White still roams the halls of the Victorian wing of the hotel. A few years ago, a guest wanted extra towels. He opened the door of his room and called out to a maid who ignored him. The guest called the front desk to inquire why the maid was so rude. He described the maid and her uniform -- one that was worn in the late 1800s. 
Equinox - 3567 Main Street, Manchester Village, VT  
Mary Todd Lincoln spent two summers vacationing at The Equinox with her children. Hotel staff has reported spotting the apparition of a mother and son, believed to be Mary Todd Lincoln and one of her sons.  
Dracula's Castle, Transylvania
Post-Communist Romania has embraced tourism with a bloodthirsty vengeance, with several castles claiming to be "Dracula's Castle." In fact, the future Dracula theme park is going not to the real site of his home but to the town making the highest bid. For the record, the castle occupied by the real Dracula (aka Vlad the Impaler) is in ruins, so what is known as Dracula's castle is Castle Bran in Transylvania, where Vlad spent a few days. Guests who sign up for the annual Dracula Tour, sponsored by Connecticut's International Tours & Events, visit Castle Bran and then spend the night at a nearby castle in Borgo Pass called, of course, Dracula's Castle. The tour price, which includes flights, accommodations and some meals, is $1,699. 
Castle Stuart - Scotland
This 17th century tower-castle near Inverness has not one but four ghosts who supposedly haunt it. The castle has been the site of many Highland battles and feuds, and reports of hauntings have existed since the late 1700s. The Stuart family claims the east tower is haunted, and that's where carpenters have fallen off ladders, furniture has been turned upside down and bloodcurdling screams have been heard. Castle Stuart is on the Whisky Trail, which could also have something to do with it. Rates start at £95 ($147) per night per person.
Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel Alberta, Canada
Some people might think that room service that arrives too late can be scary...but how about room service that keeps on coming back? The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Alberta, Canada is one of the most haunted hotels in Canada. It is supposedly haunted by Sam the bellman. Sam retired in 1967 but said he would be back. Although he died a few years later, he has apparently kept to his word. Some guests claim to have spotted a bellman wearing a 1960s-type uniform. Bed-and-breakfast packages start at $242.50. 
Hotel Maison de Ville - New Orleans
For a case of Southern discomfort, head to the Hotel Maison de Ville in New Orleans, which seems to be haunted by a soldier with a penchant for country music (Garth Brooks, anyone?). Twenty years ago, a hotel employee opened the door to Cottage No. 4 and saw a man dressed in military uniform, who then disappeared. Supposedly, whenever the cottage's radio is turned to a classical station, the ghost changes it back to a country station. Rates start at $235.  This hotel could easily be one of the top 10 haunted hotels in the United States
Langham Hilton
 - London, England
Journalists are known to keep late hours and be jittery from too much coffee, which could fuel their reports of ghostly sightings. The Langham Hilton in London, built in 1865, was once owned by the British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC). Reporters, perhaps to weasel out of deadlines, claim to have seen ghosts in Victorian garb, as well as the ghost of a German soldier. Some claim that Napoleon III haunts the Langham's basement. If you stay, Room 333 is supposed to be the most haunted. Rates start at £295 ($459).
