Would You Dare To Stay Here?(TOP10 Scariest Hotels

Crescent Hotel & Spa - Arkansas, USA
Its legend has been formed from the many guests who checked out but have never left.
These famous spirits include Michael, the Irish stonemason who fell to his death while building the hotel in 1885, Theodora, the cancer patient of the Dr. Baker hospital days who seems to need help finding her room key, Norman Baker in his white suit and lavender shirt, Morris the cat, a mystery patient in a white nightgown who appears in the luxury suites at the foot of your bed or any of the innumerable…
Visitors use to complain about pounding on door and walls or random turning of the lights on and off.
Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel - Alberta, Canada
There is one pretty sinister legend from this hotel. It is about Room 873 that is missing from the eighth floor of the hotel. It seems this room has been closed off—one continuous wall with no door blocks this guest room from being entered. The reason for this is because of what happened to a husband, wife and their young daughter when they stayed in this room. For a reason not known the husband murdered his wife and daughter and then killed himself.
Once the bodies were removed several maids were cleaning the room when they saw something that terrified them. One maid discovered the murdered daughter’s fingerprints on a mirror. When she wiped them off they immediately reappeared. Another maid tried and the same thing happened. It is said after this the hotel decided it would be best to close this room permanently. Ever since, guests have seen apparitions in the hallway outside this area. Others have heard the cries of a woman and child.
Queen Mary - Los Angeles, USA
This grand old liner has taken its nickname the ‘Grey Ghost’ to heart. The luxury ship was bought by the city of Long Beach in 1967 and transformed into a permanently docked hotel where several guests have reported having their timbers well and truly shivered.
Ghostly sightings have been recorded across the ship, including the swimming pool, which is said to be haunted by the ghosts of two guests who drowned there.
A young woman in a white dress has been spotted in the Queen’s salon, a man in a 1930s suit spotted hanging out in the First Class Suites and so many disturbances have been reported in cabin B340 that it is no longer rented out.
Knocking and banging noises have also been heard from the engine room where a 17-year-old sailor was crushed to death trying to escape a fire and guests say they have heard screams coming from the kitchen where a cook was, well, cooked by a burning stove.
Grand Hyatt Hotel - Taipei, Taiwan
It is rumored that the Grand Hyatt was erected over land that had once served as a Japanese execution ground and prison camp during World War II. The earth was so poisoned by death and despair that paranormal experiences abounded in the modern hotel, and locals shun the place like the plague. Guests of the hotel have allegedly seen ghosts in the corridors while others have heard strange noises from unoccupied rooms. Even action star Jackie Chan reported a creepy experience, storming out of his suite in the middle of the night after encountering a ghost. Desperate, management turned to feng shui experts, who installed wind chimes, amulets, and Buddhist scrolls in the lobby designed to frighten off spirits.
Hotel Chelsea – New York, USA
A bohemian landmark the Hotel Chelsea was built between 1883 and 1885. Although it was the home of countless artists, authors, poets, and musicians, it is perhaps best known as the place where Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious, how it is said, stabbed his girlfriend Nancy Spungen to death—Vicious himself died of a heroin overdose before the case could be brought to trial. Poet Dylan Thomas was staying at the Chelsea when he fell into his fatal coma; he died later in the hospital. But it’s possible Sid Vicious and Dylan Thomas never left the Hotel Chelsea after all; their ghosts have been spotted wandering its halls, along with playwright Eugene O’Neill and novelist Thomas Wolfe. Other guests have reported all manner of paranormal phenomena, from cold air to phantom footsteps to lights that switch on and off at will. The Hotel Chelsea is currently closed to new residents while undergoing renovations.
Schooner Hotel – Alnmouth, England
Built in the 1600's as a coaching inn, this grade II listed building has played host to many smugglers, murderers, and vagabonds. With tales of suicides, family massacres, and murders, it's little wonder the Schooner holds so many ghosts, with a reported 60 or more haunting its rooms and corridors.
They tend to scare visitors by turning on electrical devices, making noises or opening and closing door. The majority of the rooms in the hotel are reportedly haunted however, the centre of reports seem to stem from room 28. Stories of suicides, murders, and family massacres are said to have occurred in this room. Guests have reported the sounds of children’s voices and crying, women’s screams, an overwhelming sense of fear, and a feeling of an unseen presence in the room with them.
Toftaholm Herrgård - Smaland, Sweden
This hotel was once a manor house, owned by a wealthy baron. The baron had an attractive young daughter, and a young man fell in love with her. Unfortunately for the young man, he was a commoner, and the baron refused to allow a marriage. Instead, he found a suitable husband for his daughter (suitable for the baron, anyway).
On the morning of the wedding, the young man hanged himself from a beam in the manor house.
The room where he committed suicide is now Room 324; it is said to be haunted by his unhappy ghost.
Langham Hotel - London, England
Many celebrities have come and gone in this London classy haunted hotel. However, the hotel’s most intriguing have been its supernatural inhabitants, who were first sighted by journalists after World War II. Since then, reporters have claimed to have seen the ghost of Emperor Napoleon III, and a German prince who died by jumping out of a fourth-floor window. The hotel’s room 333 is said to be the room where many of the ghosts like to hang out.
The Russell Hotel - Sydney, Australia
The hotel, which was formerly a sailors' hostel and is situated in The Rocks, Sydney's oldest district, is thought to contain a seafaring guest who seems somewhat reluctant to check out.
Stories which date back to colonial times suggest that Room 8 is still the residence of a spectral seaman who has been known to stand and stare at guests.
The ocean-faring apparition also has a tendency to patrol the hotel at night, with staff and guests reporting the sounds of creaking floorboards only to find no-one there when they have gone to investigate the noise.
The Stanley Hotel - Rocky Mountain National Park, USA
And the best for last. The Stanley Hotel shows the uncut R-rated version of Stanley Kubrick’s film version of the book on continuous loop on one of the channels on the guest room televisions and the hotel celebrates its literary horror heritage with regular ghost tours of the hotel and its underground tunnels.
Fans of the book should request room 217, the room King and his wife stayed in, which is said to be haunted by the ghost of a hotel maid as well as a small boy calling for his nanny.
The fourth floor though is ‘ghoul central’ with countless examples of unexplained activity, including lights turning on and off by themselves, noises emanating from unused elevators and ghostly children playing in the corridors.
The hotel’s previous owner Freelan Oscar Stanley is said to haunt room 407 with guests having reported seeing a face at the window of the now unoccupied room. Stanley’s wife Flora is also said to haunt the music room downstairs where she can often be heard tinkling the ivories.
