Haunted houses are scattered all throughout the world. For Halloween, they are setup to make our worst fears come true and scare us beyond imagination. But what about the "real" haunted places? Hotels, specifically, have been known to house some of the craziest instances of spiritual activity across the world. And some of the wildest stories come from hotels in the United States.
Some of these hotels have recently gotten a strong rep for being in with the ghost scene. But they've all been around for quite some time, giving them the opportunity to absorb years of energy and occurrences. Supposedly, each location houses spirits, some who are rather friendly and just like to play, and some that are not exactly friendly. These mean spirits like to throw objects at the living. They do not want the current working staff or resident in their space at all. It's often the scarier stories that get the most attention, and that makes up the majority of the hotels listed here. If you find yourself staying in one of these haunted abodes, be sure to research the room where you are staying, because there could be a terrifying story behind it. So, without further ado, here are fifteen of the most haunted hotels in America.
15 Emily Morgan Hotel

10 Hotel Provincial
9 The Myrtles Plantation
When you think of haunted hotels, the first that probably comes to many people's minds is the Myrtles Plantation. Its story is one that has been around for awhile and sends a familiar chill down the backs of those who have heard it.
8 Crescent Hotel
7 Queen Mary
Many people know the Queen Mary Hotel in Long Beach, California, simply as a hotel full of ghosts and strange energy. But at one time, this permanently docked ship, which has been turned into a hotel over the years, actually housed a rather morbid history, giving reason to the hauntings around the property.
When the Queen Mary first made its way into the water, it served America as an ocean liner in the year 1936. Whenever the war started, the vessel was turned into a troopship. The Queen Mary served its purpose over the years and eventually won a Blue Riband for crossing the North Atlantic so fast. But the years ticked by and the ship eventually went up for sale. In 1967, it was bought and finally arrived in California, December of that same year. It opened up as a hotel for the first time in 1972 with 150 rooms available to guests. The hotel continued to run until 1992 when the hotel was shut down. However in 1993, it re-opened and continues to function as a docked ship-hotel to this day.
6 The Equinox
This one is call The Equinox Hotel and it is located in Manchester, Vermont. Mentioned as one of Vermont's most haunted hotels, this large structure houses some very creepy ghost stories, along with the telling of a very popular American figure.
5 Logan Inn
The Logan Inn is located in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and it is considered legendary in the state. Many ghost hunters and thrill seekers have come here to experience the ghostly happenings of the inn and quite a few have even left in a panic in the middle of the night.
4 La Fonda
Since 1922, the La Fonda has been offering a place of rest to those who need it. Located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, it is a very quaint place which is still in business, and blossoming with people. But behind the beauty of the property, deep in its history lies stories and spooky tales that have left their marks on the hotel.
3 Hotel Chelsea
The Hotel Chelsea is a very tall and majestic building, with an interior that will knock your socks off with its style. Between 1883 and 1884, the building was constructed and gave the public access to stay in the rooms. And just like other haunted hotels, the Hotel Chelsea has quite a few ghost stories, some being more morbid than others.
2 The Stanley Hotel
When we think Stephen King, a lot of books and movies come to mind, one of the most popular being The Shining. Most King fans know where the movie takes place, however, there are still the few out there in the world that are unaware.
1 Hotel Roosevelt
The Hotel Roosevelt is one of the most grand places you will ever visit in Hollywood, but it shouldn't come as a surprise that this hotel has had its fair share of mishaps and ghostly encounters, as a lot of famous people as well as many average people have visited the hotel.
In fact, the famous Marilyn Monroe once took up residence in the hotel for at least two years while she was making a name for herself while trying to be a model. Many have reported feeling very cold in certain areas, making it an eerie place to stay at times. Also, guests have captured great images of ghosts and orbs on film. But perhaps the most creepy event happens when the front desk receives calls to the front desk and there is no one there. This hotel certainly holds the right charm when you are visiting Hollywood, but you're planning on staying, be sure to ask about which rooms may be haunted and which ones you will be able to get a good night's sleep in.
