There's just something about hotels that makes them a perfect backdrop for eerie or frightening events. Perhaps because they fill up with strangers nightly, sleeping just a thin wall away from each other with unknown intentions and stories. Maybe the unease comes from making one's self at home in an unfamiliar place that may have seen unknown atrocities cleaned up by the staff. Whatever it is, the fascination with scary hotels isn't just a movie trope, but a popular tourist attraction for many. That's where the serial killer-themed hotel in Colorado comes in.
The place in question is The Black Monarch Hotel in Victor, CO, an old mining town's former brothel turned creepy destination for seekers of the morbid. The location languished for years until contractor Adam Zimmerli purchased the property and embraced its sinister roots in June 2019. From themed rooms to reports of an actual ghost roaming its halls, The Black Monarch Hotel has a long, interesting history that continues to fascinate the curious to this day.
