Historic hotels offer haunted hospitality

Several of the National Trust’s historic hotels are famous for more than just their unique interiors and architecture. The Night Shift Nurse haunts the halls of Baltimore’s Admiral Fell Inn and the ghost of a young woman who never checked out of the Hotel del Coronado lingers at the San Diego landmark. In fact, the Trust has compiled a rather lengthy list of ghostly tales from haunted hotels across the US. There are stories of unrequited love, culinary capers, holy spirits, past life experiences and other unexplainable mysteries of the paranormal.

You could spend every Halloween from here on out visiting these possessed places! And if you’re really eager to get in on the action soon, several of the hotels are offering spooky deals beyond next Wednesday’s holiday. The Hotel Bethlehem in PA embraces its “permanent guest” with a Rooms with a Boo weekend, November 2- 4; The Hotel Galvez in Galveston will offer its phantom package through December, and the Windsor Hotel in Americus, GA will keep guests guessing during two Murder Mystery weekends in January and February 2008.
