I am always looking for information about a supposedly very
haunted Hotels or B&B to stay at since I travel a lot for
Scifi conventions. Each year I attend Dragon Con In Atlanta
and usually share my haunted hotel stories with those in attendance
while sipping a tankard Klingon ale or my personal recipe for
Roomful Rum. Many tell tales of Haunted Motels across the country
and how they checked in and checked out real fast because it
was haunted! Haunted hotels I believe gives you a chance to
get up close and personal with a few real ghosts.
Ghost stories are great but what do you do when the room your
staying in is haunted by a ghost that wants you out!
The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, which inspired Steven
King's 'The Shining,' has a few ghosts of its own. I stayed
there during TAPS and CM Punk's visit and also Elijah Burke's
Halloween ghost hunts.
Ghost Hunters Live Scared Up Big Ratings For SCI FI Channel
Ghost Hunters Live (October 31/November 1, 11pm-5am), a never-before-attempted,
live, 6-hour Ghost Hunters investigation delivered impressive
Halloween-night ghost sightings. Sci Fi orders fourth 'Ghost
Hunters' season, extends third season. The Sci Fi Channel has
announced that it has extended Ghost Hunters' third season and
renewed the reality show for a fourth season.
I got really spooked and wanted leave, so did a few others
but their was no place to go. America's Most Haunted Places
to me are hotels, motels and B&B's.. I always wonder how
many people check in and don't check out because they die in
the bed or room I'm sleeping in.
October 31, 2008 Sci Fi will broadcast its "third annual"
Ghost Hunters Live Halloween night special. Similar to last
fall's first Ghost Hunters Live special -- the 2008 live special
will allow home viewers once again to follow a live investigation
and report their own paranormal sightings via a "live interactive
panic button." I just pray CM Punk is there again if so
I will be too!
The most famous haunted hotel I stayed in during a convention
in Hollywood is, without a doubt, the Hollywood Roosevelt. And
yes I stayed there and investigated with my daughters two friends
that just had to leave at the first sounds they heard at 2:am.

On May 7, 1928, 22 year-old Leone Jensen ended her life by jumping
off the roof of the seven-story Hotel San Carlos. Dressed in
an evening gown as if she had planned for a night of dancing,
Jensen died heartbroken from the lost love of a bellboy at a
nearby hotel. Seventy-five years later, her spirit remains at
the hotel, leading some to wonder if she did indeed jump from
the roof, or if in fact she was pushed. The two different newspapers
in Phoenix reported vastly different circumstances surrounding
her death. Since her death, there have been reports of strange
breezes, haunting noises and the white cloud of a woman's figure
throughout the hotel. Leone Jensen checked into the Hotel San
Carlos in 1928, and to this day has never checked out.

If you are a Stephen King fan, request room 217. It was in this
room that King, inspired by the hotel, wrote half of "The
Shining." Room 418 seems to have the most ghostly activity
reported. In fact, the entire fourth floor (formerly the servants
quarters) is quite active. Often, the sound of children playing
in the halls can be heard, even when no children are present.

transparent, ghost, er, guest, these haunted hotels will be
sure to raise your spirits.
