For the paranormally minded, there’s nothing better than a haunted hotel. Sure, a five-star resort or an apartment rented from an app are all well and good, but they don’t come with the same gruesome amenities as a haunted hotel room. Screams coming from down the hall, inexplicable cold spots in the corridors, and the feeling that you’re being watched as you sleep - you can only get those in a creepy hotel.
Nearly every major city in the United States from Los Angeles to New York City has a scary hotel, but these are the most haunted hotels in the country. Some of these paranormal hotspots have been around since the late 1700s, which means they’ve had plenty of time to accrue all those sweet, sweet poltergeists that you want out of a hotel stay. Some advertise their ghostly residents; others would rather you not know about them. It really depends on whether the things that go bump in the night at a given hotel are friendly or not.
Keep in mind, these haunted hotels aren’t some fly-by-night operation; there’s no outdoor parking or doors that face a highway like at some kind of haunted motel. These haunted hotels are classy, and that means the ghosts are, too. If this survey whets your appetite for some paranormal travel, don't forget to sign the guestbook!
