2. Hotel Del Coronado

The very haunted Hotel Coronado, located just outside haunted San Diego, has a ghostly tale of unrequited love. Employee's, workers and guests have been puzzled by odd noises, spirited breezes, strange faces and the ghostly figure of a young lady wearing a black lace dress.

Rising from water's edge on the quaint island of Coronado in San Diego , the Hotel del Coronado is considered one of America 's most beautiful beach resorts.
A classic historic hotel, The Del was built in 1888 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977. Today, The Del offers travelers contemporary luxury in an enchanting Victorian atmosphere. Add to this, the resort's beachfront location, and it's no wonder USA Today calls The Del "one of the top ten resorts in the world."

The Del offers a quintessential Southern California resort experience. For those seeking a romantic retreat, the resort's magical architecture and island setting are perfect. In fact, the Travel Channel rated The Del the number one wedding destination in America .

3. Stanley Hotel


This haunted hotel inspired Steven King to write "The Shining" while he stayed in room 217, but it is room 418 that reports the most ghostly activity.

There is no "red rum" in the haunted Stanley Hotel and Conference Center in the Rockies, but it is the place where Stephen King wrote half of "The Shining". The made-for-TV version of the film was shot at the Stanley, and King fans should book Room 217, which is where he stayed. It seems that strange haunted paranormal things were happening at the Stanley long before King came.

The hotel, which opened in 1909, is supposedly haunted by Flora Stanley, the wife of the owner, who likes to play the piano late at night. Her ghost is said to be very visible and a high profile haunting.

People who have stayed in Room 408 reported hearing children playing and laughing loudly outside their door, when getting up to investigate there weren't any. They also say they have left the room for a few seconds only to return and find the entire room in a dismay. And hand prints of small children on the mirrors.

Another staff member tells us of a guest, A true King fan to the end. He tells of a face, related the staff member, like that of a large dog like creature in the mirror that watched him, and yes he took a paranormal photo of it. Others tell of faucets turing on in the middle of the night, toilets flushing, and personal objects flung across the room by ghostly hands. Ghost Photos happen here all the time they say, especially when it snows.

The Stanley Hotel Haunting, the ghosts in the Stanley Hotel aren't evil as in the book. Room 418 seems to have the most ghostly activity reported. In fact, the entire fourth floor of the Stanley Hotel (formerly the servants quarters) is quite active. Often, the sound of children playing in the halls of the Stanley can be heard, even when no children are present.

The Stanleys: The Stanley Hotel's original owners, F.O. and Flora Stanley, are said to haunt the hotel as well. Mr Stanley plays the piano in the music room, and frequents the billards room and the lobby.

5. Heathman Hotel


An elegant masterpiece in the heart of downtown Portland Oregon, the Heathman Hotel is a timeless classic that has all the comforts of somewhere other than home.

This is the only famous haunted hotel is in Haunted Portland, Oregon. and related is one of the most haunted tales of any hotel to be told.

Guests staying in one of the column of rooms that end in "03" (especially told to us by a staff member room 703) have reported odd events. Moving objects, rapping's and tapings and cold spots. Ghost photos in this room show a dark cloud over the entire room. And sometimes a distorted face peering at you from a dark corner. Odd shadows on videos and many EVP's.

One guest related to me, that they stayed in the room only an hour or two this tale was stated by the guest, and an Ex-front desk clerk. In late April of 2004, The front desk clerk got more then wall call that many the guest felt a presence in the bed with them. One particular guest related that he could hear heavy breathing and he felt the sheets wrap around him so tight that he could not move.

When in this point of panic The guest told, that he tried to get out of the bed, but was trapped and the breathing got louder and closer. By the hand of God he said, he managed to break loose of the ever tightening sheets and turned on the light to see both of his large heavy suitcase fly across the room towards him.

A dark image of a man then ran into the closet. When upon help was called to from the front desk, for he thought someone had broken into his room. Security arrived, and upon investigation of the closet, proved he was quite alone in the room.

Room 703 in particular is a hot spot. Guests who leave a clean room return to find a towel used, a glass of water out, a desk chair moved. Hotel records report no one used the electronic key to get in to the room. The incidents happen much too often to be brushed off as intruders. All the rooms in a particular column (703, 803, 1003, etc..) have reported mysterious phenomena.

 

6. Carolina Inn


Often haunted ghost filled night related by the Staff member is that Paranormal investigators visited this haunted hotel in Haunted Chapel Hill, North Carolina and collected several days and said she had nights of audio and video recordings of a particular room on the second floor.

But many guest say that the haunting's in this hotel are not just localized to the second floor.

Often guest tell of being followed by a man that disappears as they turned to face him. Staff and guest also tell of a large heavy set man, dressed in a black suit wearing a knit hat, a long blue parker style coat, and who wanders the halls checking to find and open door.

Methodically this ghost moves down the hall from room to room, jiggling lightly the door knobs trying to get in. He has been reported daily to the staff, some from guest in the rooms saying they hear the door knob open the door to see him flee. Or they see him through out the hotel halls but upon investigation no one is found matching the description.

And the ghostly vision of a bloody hand was reported by a amateur Ghost Hunter crawling under her sheets. Many Paranormal Investigators tell of no less then 20 ghost that they have documented at this Haunted Honeymoon haven.

Another ghost is believed to be that of Dr. William Jacocks, who lived at the Inn for nearly 20 years.

Guests who stay in the second-floor room that was once the home of Dr. Jacocks often find themselves locked out. At one time, the room's door had to be removed from its hinges because it wouldn't budge. Paranormal researchers have collected video and audio of ghostly happenings in this hotel, including piano notes, softly spoken words, and an orb-like object floating in the air.

 

7. Sagamore Hotel


This very haunted hotel in Haunted Bolton Landing, New York, It is said to be the exclusive haunted home to several lost spirits, including a little ghost boy who walks about haunting the golf course.

Situated in the unspoiled Adirondack Mountains, The Sagamore features the Historic Hotel, with its elegant décor, and The Lodges, decorated in a relaxed Adirondack style. A year-round resort and sports paradise.

Many haunted golfers say that he steals their golf balls and flings them at you from behind a tree. And you can hear him laugh loudly. They say he will chase your ball and run behind a tree.

OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO, WHEN HOTEL OPERATOR MYRON O. BROWN SOUGHT TO BUILD AN EXCLUSIVE RESORT COMMUNITY ON LAKE GEORGE IN THE ADIRONDACKS, HE LOOKED FOR SUPPORT FROM FOUR PHILADELPHIA MILLIONAIRES WHO WERE SUMMER RESIDENTS OF THE AREA - E. BURGESS WARREN, WILLIAM B. BEMENT, ROBERT GLENDENNING, AND GEORGE BURNHAM.

Together they bought Green Island for a hotel site and formed The Green Island Improvement Company. Later they were joined by investor John Boulton Simpson of New York City, who became the company's president.

The Sagamore opened in 1883 with luxurious and spacious accommodations that attracted a select, international clientele. Twice damaged by fire, in 1893 and 1914, The Sagamore was fully reconstructed in 1930 through the efforts of Dr. William G. Beckers of New York City, one of the hotel's early stockholders, and William H. Bixby, a St. Louis industrialist. Together they financed the cost in spite of the bleak economic climate of the period.

Throughout its history, The Sagamore has been a social center for the wealthy residents of Green Island and Millionaires Row, the stately mansions along the island's western shore. In 1954, the hotel hosted the National Governor's Conference, presided over by Vice President Richard M. Nixon, and hosted by Governor Thomas E. Dewey.

The hotel eventually fell into disrepair before closing its doors in 1981. In 1983, one hundred years after construction of the first Sagamore, builder and real estate developer Norman Wolgin, of Philadelphia, purchased the hotel and restored it to its former grandeur. With Kennington Ltd., Inc. of Los Angeles, Wolgin formed a partnership under the name Green Island Associates to bring about this splendid restoration. The Sagamore is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Another tale is of a couple walking through the dining room, only to be seen in a glimpse. They turn and in a rage he flings her hard to the floor with a thud, She reaches at him violently from where she falls and fades into the carpet.

Then the most weird ghost tale of a mysterious lady in white who enters many rooms. Guest are said to feel wispy chills. They say she awakens sleepers by peering into their faces and blowing a cold chill on their eyelids. Many guest have reported sleepless nights and the feeling of being watched.

It has been said by Staff and guest this hotel sports more spirits then have been seen or documented.

 

8. Crescent Hotel

Guests have reported sightings and other odd happenings in a number of guest rooms, the lobby, dining room and the grounds of this great historic hotel in Haunted Eureka Springs.

You don't need to stay in a haunted room to see a real ghost at the Crescent Hotel. Outside of the Recreation Room, the ghost of Dr. Norman Baker often appears, looking a bit confused. He ran a controversial hospital and health resort in the building during the 1930s. Many people believe honestly that the spring water that flows underneath the hotel is high in energy and it attracts ghostly apparitions. Is this just a publicity gimmick to help a failing hotel? It could be, but actually the hotel was starting to do well before the ghosts were sighted.

The Crystal Dining Room of the Crescent Hotel is particularly active, and many spirits in Victorian garb hve been spotted there at the tables or in the mirrors. Once, at Christmastime, the staff reported leaving a Christmas tree and presents at one end of the locked and empty Crystal Dining Room. Upon their return, the staff found the tree and presents moved to the other end of the room, and chairs facing the tree in a semi-circle.


The 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa has a rich and fascinating history. Read about some of the earliest accounts from these stories taken from the Eureka Springs Times Echo, one of Eureka Springs' early newspapers which is still in existence today and some fascinating information on Dr. Norman Baker, one time owner of the Crescent Hotel who ran a "Cancer Hospital" in his "Castle in the Air".

Please also see www.crescent-hotel.com/history.htm

The hotel was designed by the architect Isaac L. Taylor in 1886.It was used as a hotel for several years before it could no longer sustain itself financially.

In 1908, the hotel was opened as the Crescent College and Conservatory for Young Women. Soon it couldn't afford to stay open as a school either.The school closed in 1924 and then reopened from 1930 to 1934 as a junior college.
The Crescent was leased as a summer hotel after the school closed. In 1937, it got a new owner.Norman Baker turned the place into a hospital and health resort. Baker was an inventor and had made millions of dollars by 1934.Baker wasn't happy just inventing things because he thought of himself as a doctor (even though he had no medical training). He claimed to have discovered a number of "cures" for various ailments, including cancer.He was sure that organized medicine was conspiring against him. He had recently been ran out of Iowa for practicing medicine without a license.

Baker moved his cancer patients to Arkansas and he advertised the health resort.The "cure" was basically drinking the natural spring water. No one was really harmed by this, but it wasn't really the advertised "miracle cure". Federal charges were filed against him for mail fraud and he spent four years in prison. The Crescent Hotel was left ownerless.

The hotel stayed closed until 1946 when new investors took it over and began trying to restore this odd and historical piece of Ozark history.

I used to work there. It was originally a hotel, but was then renovated
into a psych hospital and then a nursing home. After the nursing home it
sat empty before being made back into a hotel. It is said that a
ballerina jumped out of the seventh floor window, and another man hung
himself on the second floor (where the ballroom is now). There have also been
sightings of a strange hum and glowing in one of the smaller banquet

Do you Live In The Most Haunted State Of America?

By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh - Necromancer

Long perceived as one of the most haunted States in America Louisiana Tops the 2009 list. To be sure of what this really means, The Most Haunted Number 1 ranking information must be considered carefully.  Ghost sightings, Paranormal locations, myths legends and ghost hunting all come into play in the actual ranking order.

However the rankings tell not only an interesting, but also very important story regarding the incidence of actual haunting's and ghosts investigating in the United States. 

Furthermore, My first annual rankings not only allow for comparisons among different Haunted States and The Most Haunted Cities, but also enable many Paranormal Investigators or part time Ghost Hunters to track their communities' Most Haunted trends from one year to the next hereafter.

In essence it also gives those in pursuit of Ghost, haunting's and the paranormal a starting point of where the most haunting's in the United States Of America occur on a daily regular basis. And most of all where they should venue to meet a ghost eye to eye.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's Most Haunted Cities Top Ten Rankings:


1 New Orleans
2 Gettysburg, PA
3 Galveston, TX
4 Savannah, GA
5 Chicago, IL
6 Nashville, TN
7 Milwaukee, WI
8 Columbus, OH
9 Charlotte, NC
10 Marshall, TX

America's most haunted places are easy to find and certain America States seem to be more or less haunted then others because of the nations pasts. Some very haunted communities are more prone to ghosts and haunting's because of past or even recent violence, crimes or specific disasters such as Louisiana's, New Orleans and the impact of Hurricane Katrina. Not discounting it's past haunting's and paranormal activities.

Louisiana does play host tot the most haunted Buildings, Haunted Cemeteries, Haunted Plantations and of course the Most documented long list of paranormal encounters in all the 50 states. Where as North Dakota ranked number 50 on the list seems to have the least.

 

A review of some of the most popular Internet paranormal informational sources does turn up a clear winner for the most haunted state. Read the following list to learn how each website rated the top haunted states, and which state wins the title as the most haunted.

  • Haunted America Tours is a constant source for ghost hunting, ghost tour and haunting information from across the country. In 2009, Haunted Tours posted a "2009 Most Haunted State in America" ranking drawn from the two year research of Lisa Lee Harp Waugh. According to these rankings, the top five most haunted states included Louisiana, New Mexico, Arizona, Maryland and Tennessee.
  • BestAndWorse.com has an online poll, active from April 2008 through December 2010, that bases the top rankings on a visitor survey rather than research. The survey asks visitors to vote for the most haunted state. As of April 2009, visitors ranked the top five most haunted states as Massachusetts, Louisiana, Ohio, Virginia and Georgia.
  • Author Troy Taylor compiled a list of what he believes are America's most haunted places for PrairieGhosts.com. Some of the most haunted places that he listed included the Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana, the Bell Witch Cave in Tennessee, the Lincoln Theater in Illinois, and the Bobby Mackey's Music World in Kentucky (near Ohio). He also included the Moore Ax Murder House in Iowa and the Lemp Mansion in Missouri.
  • SixWise, a site not typically focused on the paranormal, decided to publish a feature in 2006 on the top 10 haunted places in the country. The sites that made this list included Bachelor's Grove Cemetery and the Hickory Hill Slave House in Illinois, as well as the Lemp Mansion and Devil's Promenade in Missouri. The U.S. Air Force Museum in Ohio and Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana also made the list.
  • LoveToKnow Paranormal also featured a list of the 10 most haunted places, including the Bell Witch cave in Tennessee, Waverly Hills in Kentucky, Bachelor's Grove Cemetery and the Lincoln Theater in Illinois. Eastern State Penitentiary and Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania round out the list.

The most remarkable thing about all of these many different rankings of the most haunted places around the country all tend to group around the very central region of the country. This grouping identifies where most of the hauntings tend to focus in the country. Excerpt from http://paranormal.lovetoknow.com/What_Is_the_Most_Haunted_State

LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

 

A professional Necromancer and founder of the Sorcerers Guild of greater Houston and Galveston, Texas. Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed"

Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of Hell, Heaven and all places in between.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments have been achieved through hard work, persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude required to overcome obstacles and reach difficult goals. Waugh shares her approach to communicating with the dead success in this motivational performance that's sure to inspire Paranormal Investigators to excel in their life.

You can contact Waugh directly by email with questions or requests for media interviews or public appearances at: onthebaylisa@aol.com
