8. Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Los Angeles
9. La Fonda on the Plaza, Santa Fe, New Mexico
While the current iteration of this Santa Fe hotel was built in 1922, inns, or fondas, have been constructed on the site since 1607. It has some notable spectral guests, including the Honorable John P. Slough, Chief Justice of the Territorial Supreme Court, who was shot in the lobby in 1867.
10. The Hay-Adams, Washington, D.C.
Built on the site of former mansions owned by John Hay and Henry Adams (a descendant of both Adams presidents), the nearly 90-year-old hotel is reportedly haunted by the ghost of Adams’s wife, Marian Hooper Adams, who was once a guest there.
11. The Driskill Hotel, Austin
The hotel in downtown Austin was founded in 1886 by Civil War colonel Jesse Driskill, who is said to be one of the spirits that haunts the premises. Room 525 is considered to be one of the spaces with the most paranormal activity. Two brides reportedly committed suicide in the room 20 years apart.
12. The Sagamore Resort, Bolton Landing, New York
Set on Lake George, the hotel opened in 1883, and guests from the property’s long history have stuck around long after checking out. Current guests have reported seeing a boy from the 1950s on the golf course, an eerie woman in white, and a couple dining in one of the hotel’s restaurants.
13. The Seelbach Hilton, Louisville
The Seelbach Hilton is home to the legendary Lady in Blue, a guest who died in the hotel in 1936. Legend has it that Patricia Wilson had come to the hotel to reconcile with her ex-husband, but he was killed in a car crash on his way, and she threw herself down the elevator shaft out of grief. Guests and hotel staff have spotted a woman in a blue chiffon dress with long black hair on the eighth floor.
14. Hotel del Coronado, San Diego
Kate Morgan has been the resident ghost at the Hotel del Coronado since 1892. The 24-year-old checked into a room on the third floor on Thanksgiving and stayed for five days, waiting for a lover to join her. When he didn’t arrive, she took her own life, and her presence has been felt in the guest room where she stayed and in the hotel’s gift shop.
