On my last post, I mentioned that Jay and I went to Chicago for the weekend. Originally we were supposed to go Wisconsin for Ghost Con, but that was canceled due to Covid and political unrest. Since Jay had a long weekend off, we took off to Chicago.
When I started researching this week's topic, one celebrity came through like Al through an Ovilus. Rudolph Valentino seems to be everywhere. His spirit has been seen in so many places I don't think I can fit it all into one post.
Whether you love his music or not, almost everyone nowadays knows who Elvis Presley was. It has been 43 years since his death, but he's spirit seems to be just as active today as he was when he was alive. Elvis's spirit appears to travel just as often as he did when he was touring.
The Exchange Hotel in Gordonsville, Virginia is a beautiful older hotel. While it’s been eight years since I have visited this location, I doubt it has changed much. When I visited it, it still looked like it was set up for service in 1860’s.
Sometimes a place is so haunted that the guests won’t stay the night or furniture has to be moved out of the hotel because the spirits won’t stop messing with it. The inns being talked about in today’s post are just that haunted. They attract famous paranormal investigators from around the world who try to interact with those that choose to roam the inn’s hallways. Even those who are holy aren’t safe from these spirits.
Back home, in North Carolina, I often heard of different places that were haunted. Especially hotels. The hotels in today’s post I haven’t had the pleasure of investigating in person yet but I plain to soon. The spirits tied to these hotels are popular and quite active. So much so that one of these hotels made the Washington Post’s list of thirteen most haunted hotels in America.
The two hotels featured in today’s post have feature spirits that have come back to either find their loved ones or to bring peace to their family members. Love keeps them wandering the hallways and surprising guests with their frequent visits. Resting in peace doesn’t have to mean you have to leave your home.
Usually when we go on vacation, we check into hotels so we don’t have to stay with strangers and to have our privacy respected. If you check into these hotel rooms though, you may find some company waiting for you. If you are looking for peace and quiet stay out of these specific rooms, you can’t say you haven’t been warned.
Our month of traveling themed posts continue. This week is all about haunted hotels around the world. Each hotel has a different story and history that adds to the spooky things you might see, hear, smell, or feel while checked in. The spirits I will write about this week range from playful children to sexy, lonely women still looking for a date to murderous souls who may still be killing people.
