15 Famous Haunted Hotels – Part 2 of 3
By Julian Russi

Hello everyone! We’re getting ready to celebrate this year’s Halloween, so it’s time to bring you the second part of this countdown. Here’s another group of haunted hotels around the world, from a famous hotel in New York to one of the scariest lodgings in South America.

Chelsea Hotel – New York

Many years ago, three women claimed they saw witches and specters climbing out from the drain near Chelsea Hotel. Years later, one of its rooms saw the death of Nancy Spungen, Sid Vicious’ (the famous Six Pistols bass player’s) girlfriend. Despite this series of events, tourists are paying a minimum rate of USD 145 to spend one night here.

Hotel Burchianti – Florence

Inside this hotel you can find the famous Fresco Room, where the fascist leader Benito Mussolini stayed. There’s no evidence connecting this to the appearance of many ghosts and strange occurrences inside the hotel.

Langham Hotel – London

From Oscar Wilde to Mark Twain, this hotel has had many notorious guests over the years. It also has some less famous and more permanent residents, including an old German Prince and even Napoleon III of France. Sure you can stay at this hotel, but beware of room number 333.

Farnsworth House Inn – Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

As most Americans know, Gettysburg is one of the most iconic sites of the Civil War. It’s not surprising that one of this city’s hotels has become the house of 14 Civil War ghosts. You can still see marks left by the war in the more than 100 bullet holes pelleted across the building. If you’re a fan of the Civil War, then make sure you reserve a bed.

Gran Hotel Bolivar – Lima, Peru

At first view, this hotel looks charming and grand, a historical beauty. But then you discover that inside its walls, many incidents have occurred, including murders and suicides. According to the hotel employees, the spirit of an old bellhop can be seen at night.

Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel – Banff, Canada

When you visit this luxurious hotel beside the Rocky Mountains, you will find what’s probably the friendliest and most polite ghost on the list. As the story goes, the hotel houses the spirit of Sam Macaullay, a former bellhop who died shortly after being forced to retire in the 1970s. People claim to have seen the ghost opening the door for them, carrying their luggage and even accepting tips. What a nice ghost, huh?

Don’t check out yet, because the third and final part of this countdown will bring you more frightening hotels where spending the night can become an otherworldly experience.
