Drafty corridors. Flashes of movement in mirrors. Billowing drapes and creaky floorboards. Scare yet? You should be! Halloween isn’t far away, and staying in a haunted hotel with friends is one of the most fun things you can do on Halloween night. Have fun, and prepared to be afraid, very afraid…

This hotel has served a number of different uses, and some of its buildings have been around since the 1770s. There are many rumors of ghostly happenings in and around the hotel.
The Driskill Hotel – Austin, Texas
Stunning hotel and one of Austin’s most famous landmarks. Listen for the sounds of a little girl laughing and bouncing a ball in the hallways and other haunted happenings…
The Hawthorne Hotel – Salem, Massachusetts
Considering Salem’s history, it’s not surprise that there are some hotels rumored to be haunted in the town. This hotel has actually only around since 1925, so its ghosts are younger than some of the rest of the town’s.
The Roosevelt Hotel - Hollywood, California
Some say you’ll see more than celebrities as this swanky Hollywood Hotel. Hotel workers says they’re frequently spooked by spirits.

Had to include this sprawling Colorado hotel – it was the hotel that inspired Stephen King to write The Shining. He stayed in room 217. Room 418 is rumored to be very haunted.
