Overview

Twenty-five scary stays where ghosts check in,but don’t check out

Hotels all over the world are said to have resident spirits. While owners may debate the wisdom of acknowledging spooky tales, guests continue to run into the apparitions. Haunted Hotels brings together twenty-five tales of ghosts, hauntings, and other paranormal happenings purported to have taken place on or around hotels, inns, and rooming houses across America and around the world, including:

• The Phantom in the Del: Was it suicide that killed Kate Morgan at San Diego’s famed Hotel del Coronado in 1892? And was that really her name? She’s been gliding down the hotel’s hallways for decades, and spectral phenomena continue to plague the room where she stayed.

• The Hellfire Horror: Two centuries ago, a prank pulled on a naïve barmaid led to tragedy in a cave used by the Hellfire Club in England. Her phantom has returned to the George and Dragon Inn, where she awaits the arrival of the mysterious lover she had hoped to meet the night of her doom.
