The world is full of haunted places, so why not book a room in a haunted hotel? We’ve rounded up five that are sure to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
Equinox Luxury Collection
— Travel Vermont (@VermontTourism) February 6, 2017
Those wishing for a ghostly encounter with Mary Todd Lincoln should visit the Equinox Luxury Collection. Located in Manchester, VT, it’s been in service for two centuries. Which is more than enough time to attract some ghosts. Specifically that of Mary Todd, the wife of former president Abraham.
She visited this hotel with her two sons in the summer of 1864. After that trip, she booked another one with Abraham for the following summer. He was assassinated in April of 1865. Cleaning staff have reportedly seen her ghostly apparition along with a small child, appearing and disappearing into thin air.

The next time you’re in Washington, D.C., be sure to book a room at the Hay-Adams. John Hay and Henry Adams, former politicians, once owned this hotel that was built in 1928. In addition to Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindenburgh, another ghost might keep you company during your visit.
Photographer Marian “Clover” Hooper Adams drank photo developing chemicals here, back when it was two mansions, and died. She’s been there ever since. No need to worry, though. She’s just known to whisper into ears and hug you. Just a friendly ghost.

The Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California, was once the biggest in the world after it first opened in 1888. The author of the Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum, wrote a great deal of the book here too. Those who are up for a fright should book room 3502.
A woman by the name of Kate Morgan checked into that room in 1892 and was found dead the next day, with a single gunshot wound to the head. While you can expect to feel gusts of wind through closed windows throughout the hotel, it supposedly happens the most in room 3502.

If you’re into the Italian Renaissance style of decorating, be sure to check out the Heathman Hotel in Portland, Oregon. Built in 1927, it has classic hauntings that one would expect in an old building: furniture that moves on its own and cold spots. For more intense paranormal activity, visit rooms 703, 803, and 1003.
Guests have complained of a face staring at them and shadows have even been captured on video from these rooms. Notice the 3 at the end of each one? According to a psychic, someone jumped and died from room 803. That person now inhabits the rooms they passed along the way.

The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, has been in business since 1913. The stone exterior helps keep a woman known only as the Pink Lady inside. Guests have reported seeing a pink mist in the hallways, while others have claimed to have seen her full body in a pink ball gown. She’s apparently made room 545 her home after falling to her death in the 1920s.
