Haunted Hampton Inn Chicago Crestwood

During mid January 2011 I traveled from Detroit to Chicago to work on some machinery at a local plant. On the second day of my trip I wrapped up at the plant and couldn’t wait to get back to my hotel: the Hampton inn Crestwood on Cicero Ave.

Upon arrival and watching television I turned off the lights and laid on my side waiting to drift off to sleep. Immediately after closing my eyes, I felt as though I was not alone or someone was watching me. I rotated my head to the left and saw something extremely dark waving in front of my eyes. After lifting my head up a little to get a better look I realized that it was not the blankets waving or anything.

I quickly rolled completely over to the left and I saw a dark mass quickly back away but remain beside the bed.

The mass was only about three or for feet higher …

Creepy Old Man in a Painting

A little background on this story – when I was still in middle school we would take one week-long class trip a year (we called them “Spring Trip”) and we would go places that had relevance to whatever topics we were studying that year. Because class sizes were small, grades 6-8 were taught together for a majority of the classes. Spring trip took all three grades at once.

This particular Spring Trip is one I will never forget. I was in the eighth grade and we were visiting the city of San Francisco. I don’t remember the name of the hotel we were staying in, but I ended up in a room with one of my friends. Over every bed in the place was what appeared to be a painting of an elderly man in wire-rimmed glasses. In his hands was a lady’s heeled boot and he appeared to be sitting inside of a workshop, like he made boots.

A Beach Side Haunting

This true life experience dates back to the summer of 2002, when I used to be employed at one of the more expensive beach resorts in Goa, India. The Indian Law states that no part of the coastline in the country can be held as privately owned except by the Naval Forces, as a result, the beach front of the resort I worked for, was free to be accessed by people other than the resort guests, which the hotel management strongly discouraged. The management, therefore, had posted 3 security personnel on the beach at night to deter anyone trying to enter the hotel property from the shore.

I remember quite clearly that the management was always short on security personnel on the beach. Security staff was either reluctant to be posted there and if they did, I do not remember many who lasted more than a couple of weeks at work. Most would request to be re posted on other …

Our Strange Occurrences at the Crescent Hotel

My friend and I stayed this past weekend in room 213. We had several things happen while we were there. Odd things that occurred and left us believing for sure that there is some type of paranormal activity that resides at the Crescent.

The first thing we had happen – We were ready to leave for town, or a little shopping – this was on October 1st. I had laid my camera beside my purse on the bed. I had go to the rest room, my friend was in the other bathroom area putting on her makeup. After I came out I asked her where my camera was. We both were looking for it only to find it was laying on top of my suitcase rocking back and forth about to fall off, it was barely even on the suit case. It shocked us both and made chill bumps go on our arms, we took numerous pictures of it.

Then …

Falstaff Hotel in Canterbury

My family have experienced all sorts of things when they were younger, and I seemed to have inherited a sort of “sensitive” gene. For example my dad saw his mum after she died, and his dad saw his grandmother after she died, and Mum and I have experienced feelings of being followed or watched etc.

But this is my story. I was born in England and then moved to Australia. My grandparents and uncles, aunts and cousins live in England still so we traveled back to visit them. We decided to stay in the Falstaff hotel in Canterbury which seemed really nice at the time.

My mum and I were really tired so we decided to watch TV in our room. Mum had dropped off to sleep and I was still watching TV. I suddenly got really tired and turned off the TV and got ready for bed. As soon as I laid my head on the pillow, something said …

The Haunted Stanley Hotel of Estes Park

Did you see Stephen King’s The Shining? The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado (About 45 minutes away from Boulder) was King’s inspiration for the movie. The hotel has been reported to be haunted be a few ghosts.

The Shining wasn’t shot at the hotel even though many people think it was. When King began work on the novel he actually locked himself up in room number 217.

When the Stanley Hotel opened it’s doors in 1909 it was the only hotel anywhere in the world to have electric power. The hotel was originally owned by Lord Dunraven and was later sold to Stanley Steamer inventor F. Stanley.

The ghost of Lord Dunraven has been reported to haunt the 4th floor. A lot of ghost activity has been reported near the bathroom door of room number 407. Hotel guests have also reported hearing child ghosts playing and laughing in the 4th floor hallway.
