Haunted hallways and ghost sightings draw thrill-seekers from around the world to these infamous hotels where you will never sleep alone.
Crescent Hotel, Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Opened in 1886, Crescent Hotel is known as one of the most haunted hotels in the U.S. Once a cancer hospital, guests have reported sightings of over a dozen ghosts, including Michael, a stonemason from the building’s original construction, and Theodora, one of the hospital’s ill-fated patients.
Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum, Fall River, Massachusetts
This bed and breakfast is the actual home where Lizzie Border’s family was murdered in 1892. Today, the house is a bed and breakfast as well as a museum dedicated to the family. Guests are reported strange sightings much as mysterious scents and doors opening and closing on their own.
Dalhousie Castle, Scotland, UK
Built in the 13th century, this hotel is home to dozens of suspected ghosts that roam the property. It is alleged that one ghost, Sir Alexander Ramsay, was starved to death in 1342 by William Douglas and has wandered the grounds ever since.
The Langham Hotel, London, UK
This hotel is reportedly home to a few ghosts who like to haunt its nightly guests. A night here could mean a visit from a doctor who murdered his wife and then committed suicide, a man with a deep wound on his face, a former butler who wanders the hallways, and Napoleon III.
The Russell Hotel, Sydney, Australia
People from around the world stay at The Russell Hotel in hopes of a good scare. A sailor is said to have never checked out of room 8 and the unexplained sound of someone walking over creaky floors can frequently be heard.
