have said that the living and the dead enjoy
the great southern hospitality of Le Pavilion
Hotel. We present here now this compilation
of haunted tales surrounding the hotel.
Many locals and staff
swear that the hotel hired many professional
noted paranormal investigators over the years
to identify the ghosts. As have many novice
Ghost Hunters/Chasers explored it's haunted
location and have reported and documented
their findings here for us. I will try to
pull from all that I have been offered and
present to you a full scope view of what purported
haunting's are occurring.
Haunted tales and Ghost
stories keep pouring in from you our readers
on the Le Pavilion Hotel. Many have found
new lonely lost spirits have been sent me
their documented tales. I now present a few
of them here for you our readers to explore
and maybe investigate in the future.
Here are just a small
ghost filled taste that I have been able to
gather from locals, staff, and visitors, and
of course professionals in the ghost hunting
field to this very haunted New Orleans hotel.....
The most reported ghost
that graces the lobby of this magnificently
embellished hotel is that of Adda. A lost
lonely tearful ghost of a teenage girl haunts
the main entrance and lobby. Some call her
Adda (or Ava, Eva the crying lost ghost girl).
The girl was reportedly set to board a ship
with her family when she was struck by a runaway
carriage and killed. She is believed to have
lived around the 1840s, because of her style
of dress and is reported to be between 15
and 17 years of age by her appearance. Staff
say quite openly, that she walk up and down
pacing the grand lobby sometimes actually
bumping into guest and saying, "Pardon
me, I am, .... very lost." Only then
to vanish from plain sight in an instance.
One New Orleans taxi cab
driver tells this story over and over again.
He swears she got into his cab one awful cold,
rainy night, and asked to be taken to the
ship passenger terminal. Speaking to him in
a heavy thick french accent she said nothing
more. When then upon driving only a few blocks
from the hotel Down Poydras Ave. She just
disappeared, "Poof" from the back
seat into thin air... " I thought she
was a real person, I saw her face to face
and in my rear view mirror." "The
doorman actually opened the door for her."
"I drove straight back told him what
happened." We just looked at each other
in disbelief." He said. The doorman shrugged,
and said to me. " Well. this has happened
a lot to other cab drivers, and I am not the
first to have taken the ghost girl for a ride."
The lovely young girl is
said to be very fair with alabaster skin,
pulled back brown hair,and tearing brown eyes.
Always dressed in black, long flowing to the
ankle skirt, and a black long shawl, and a
broad black hat. she carries only a clutch
purse. She has been mistaken for a Mardi Gras
revealer, or just someone in a nice vintage
One Staff Member told a
novice ghost investigator that all the encounters
with her are said that she appears very real,
and alive. Never ghostly, and that you would
never think anything other worldly was going
on until she vanishes before your eyes. Some
say they have smelled sweet roses when she
is near others, say the smell of fresh lilacs.
She carries with her a
small purse that she sometimes drops. Many
People have said they have picked it up and
handed it to her then witnessed her tears
and then have her just to vanish before their
eyes." I have had people say they have
touched her and she feels very solid. As wells
as to the numerous times people say they have
felt her bump into them quite hard".
"The only thing that is left of the occurrence
is the feeling of being spooked and the strong
smell that haunts the incident." Said
a well Known California Paranormal Investigator
who says he has stayed and documented the
occurrences more then once privately.
She some times has been
known to walk up to people on the street and
asked them, "Pardon me, do they know
the way to the ship passenger terminal?"
One young recent visiting couple reported
to me in a email, that they, met this young
lost french girl in a dark long dress and
shawl. "We were in New Orleans and thought
nothing of the clothes she was wearing."We
thought she was a performer in a costume."
"We told her we were going on the cruise
and would be glad to share a ride in a taxi
cab with her." "A taxi was summoned,
all three of us got in." We drove for
a few blocks and then we realized it was just
the two of us in the taxi." the couple
stated. "I turned to my husband then
turned to face her, she was not there, and
even the driver was startled." "I
was very afraid," the young lady said."
I know now I was in a taxi with a ghost!"
"I could still smell the heave sent of
the rose smelling perfume she wore."
Another reported ghost encounter
is of a aristocratic middle aged couple. It
has also been well documented by many, of
them strolling the halls and grounds. They
appear very often quite solid and real also.
They are dressed in dark clothes and seem
to be from the circa 1920s. The have been
seen holding hands and walk slowly and lovingly
through the doors and into the elevators.
Staff and many scared guest have spotted these
ghostly apparitions in the halls and on the
3rd and 4th floor quite often. The tall man
smokes a cigar, and wears a dark hat. He has
a dark mustache and a cane or umbrella some
times, and the smell of his large fat dark
ghost cigar is pungent and it lingers. The
lady who is said is not his wife, but another
guest, or ghost mistress that he was courting.
She wears a light blue long dress, and has
dark hair and caries a long beaded purse.
Many nation wide Paranormal
Investigators say her room was on the third
floor, and that it is very much filled with
the fragrance of a ghost perfume. The gentleman's
room was on the 4th floor and the cigars haunted
smell is their between the hours of 7 pm and
midnight. Each day they were said to take
a stroll through New Orleans cobble stoned
streets and banquets, admiring the haunted
architecture and the bustling Mississippi
On one particularly hot
steamy New Orleans summer day he is said to
have dropped to the ground dead, from a heart
attack as they returned the hotel. They say
he died in the street as they were crossing."His
spirit was there first and hers only arriving
sometimes in the early 1960's to join him."
Said one well noted chicago Ghost investigator.
" This is a true Haunted New Orleans
ghost love story." Many Ghost hunters
from across the nation, believes they joined
each other in death to finish what they started
in the city they loved.
The lovely lady ghost is
very tearful when seen alone in the afternoon.
But when you spot her in the mornings she
is radiantly happy and bounding with a inner
glow that is to some a sign of how in love
she is. Quite often depending on the time
of day or night they are separated and haunt
the hotel apart from each other. But between
11 am and 5 pm they are always together..."
Arm in arm and always very happy you can see
it on their faces." This was said a hotel
security guard that says he sees them together
very often." I don't' want to tell this
to to many people , but I know what I see
and I believe in Ghost." I didn't until
I started working here." he exclaims.
" I do know what is real, l and this
haunting is." He said.
Another haunted ghost story that keeps popping
up often is of a young long haired man, around
the age of 19-22, his clothes, brightly colored
shirt with balloon sleeves, and bell bottom
pants and a large belt buckle, and shoeless
feet seem to be from the mid 1960s .His long
blondish to the middle of his back hair is
neat and his face quite happy. guest and staff
say he smiles a lot He often has been reported
playing ghostly pranks on the hotel cleaning
staff, guest and locals, pulling sheets from
the bed during the night, moving guest belongings
from draw to draw or hiding a shoe or room
key. You can sometimes even see him in a mirror
it is said.
The many haunted staff
members say he haunts the entire hotel and
is often seen running through out the hotel
as if someone was chasing him. One local spotted
him on the street, he then ran straight into
a outside wall and vanished. Another said
he runs along the sidewalks and parking area
day and night. Security are often checking
out his escapades. Only to say it's him again.
One security guard says he saw him on actual
video surveillance once. " This dark
figure ran by and I swear I could see right
through it as I watched the monitor."
" I really don't want to tell you this
but I was scared." He relates.
Another ex-staff member
told ghost hunters this really haunting Ghost
story about him. Hotel guest had told her
that, he can also be seen peering into your
room from out side the window, no matter what
floor your on, 4th, 5th, and even higher...
One frightened guest called me at the front
desk around 3 pm and stated to me . "There's
a long haired man outside my window, and I
am so afraid he is going to jump." "So
i sent security, they went to her room, as
did they go out side to investigate."
"Nothing, or should I say no one was
found." "I felt helpless, I knew
the story so well.... how do you tell a rattled
hotel guest you just saw a ghost!" Said
the hotel employee. " I hate to relate
this story," to often she said, "Yes,
it really gives me the creeps."
