Travel Tip: The Friendliest Hotel Ghosts

Locations in this article:  New Orleans, LA

otesagaHalloween is approaching, so you know what that means: time to visit a haunted hotel!

Don’t worry, haunted doesn’t have to be scary. Some hotel ghosts are as friendly as Casper.

For example, take this one in the historic Bullock Hotel, in Deadwood, South Dakota. It was built by the town’s first mayor, Seth Bullock, who died inside the hotel in 1919. He’s said to still be there, checking up on guests and making sure employees are doing their jobs.

Only friendly ghosts live at The Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, New York. It used to be an all ­girls’ school, and people report hearing children playing on the third floor.

New Orleans is known for being haunted, and the Hotel Monteleone is one of the most haunted spots in the city.

Most of the paranormal activity is reported on the 14th floor. This includes a little boy looking for his parents, small kids running, and even a housekeeper who supposedly stuck around to keep an eye on the staff.

Hey, some of these ghosts still work in hospitality, after all.
