15 Haunted Hotels You Can Actually Spend The Night In… YIKES.

As we get closer to Halloween we hear more stories of the scary and unexplainable kind. It happens every year around this time, but that doesn’t mean that the stories are restricted to the month of October. There are plenty of stories that happen all throughout the year and they never seem to end.

Haunted houses and hotels are some of the most frequently told stories and while some of them seem like they are completely bogus, there are plenty that have enough evidence to back them up.

There are several lists available of the most haunted places in the world and many of them are right here in the United States. There are several paranormal investigators that chase down these claims and some of them come up empty and some others that say they have found proof that haunting really exists in some of these places.

Some of the stories are a little scary and some of them are flat out amazing. The one thing that you can’t get away from though is that most of the stories happen to people when they are alone. Those obviously can’t be verified all that easily. The experiences that are witnessed by several people at the same time though have to make you think.

Here are some of the most haunted places around and some of the stories that have been told about them.

#1. The Bourbon Orleans Hotel

The Bourbon Orleans Hotel is one of the more famous hotels for being haunted in New Orleans. Prior to the hotel there was an old Ballroom and then a convent on the grounds.

Famous psychic Chip Coffey once performed a reading here and made contact with several spirits. Two of them were a little girl and a little boy who he said had sudden deaths many years ago.

#2. The Stanley Hotel

The Stanley Hotel has the look of a place that has spirits running through it. It has been restored to look just like it did in its hey day and it's open daily for visitors.

Back in the 1800's it was a destination for those that were looking for a peaceful getaway. If it looks familiar to you that's because Steven King used it as the inspiration for his horror book and then movie The Shining. That breathed new life into the old building and saved the place from being torn down. But visit at your own risk because there is a reason that King was inspired to do the book.

#3. The Emily Morgan Hotel

The Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, is said to be the #3 most haunted place in the world. If that’s not a good enough reason to stay away I don’t know what could be.

Depending on who you talk to there you may get some stories of experiences while others may not say a thing. Long ago there was a medical facility on the grounds and there are rumors that say the former patients from the 12th and 14th floors are the ones that walk the grounds currently. So you can take that information and do with it what you will but I’ll stay away!

It’s located right in the center of Boston and it has been there since 1855. Steven King used stories from the hotel for his book “1408." He was inspired by stories that he heard that happened in Room 303 but that’s not the only room that has reported strange happenings. There have also been reports about Room 1012 and others from the 9th and 10th floors. Choose your room carefully there!
