Jericho New York (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Haunted Hotels and Halloween, a perfect combination to explore the 31st of October, a favorite American holiday. Old hotels may be considered creepy places, and often time’s have storied pasts. When a guest dies in a hotel, many believe that is what causes the hotel to become haunted. The older a hotel, the more likely someone has, passed away, in the very room where many guests stay every year. Stories of ghosts, visions, curtains moving, mirrors talking may seem crazy, but to many eye witnesses these claims are not just stories, but reality.

The Crescent Hotel: The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs Arkansas was purchased by Norman Baker in 1937, a self-proclaimed doctor, who had no training, saw to it that many guests died in the hotel. Since that time many visitors claim paranormal activity during the month of October.

Travelers can stay in Lizzie’s room, or even in the room where her parents were murdered. Many guests have claimed to see her ghost in the mirror, and strange noises have been reported during the night.
The Queen Mary Hotel: The Queen Mary, originally a pleasure cruise, launched her maiden voyage in 1936. Three years later the ship was commandeered for military use, the ship transported troops from the United States to Europe. In 1939 on a trip across the Atlantic, one of its escort ships tried to cut across the bow, and was cut in half by the Queen Mary. Three hundred crew members died.
