Climbing Mt. Everest. Swimming with dolphins. Watching someone who died 300 years ago pass through your room? Yes, some travel experiences are more equal than others. And while you may never rappel up the side of a mountain, you have lots of opportunities to stay in a haunted hotel. Or, shall we say, an allegedly haunted hotel.
Dom Villella, an investigator with Paranormal Investigation of NYC, has studied paranormal activity for several years and says hauntings are typically either "traditional" or "residual energy" experiences. A traditional haunting may be from the spirit of a person who dies a "violent death, whether it be a murder or a suicide."
But why would a ghost choose to haunt a public hotel, not their former residence? "Maybe they have unfinished business or there is a person they are attached to," says Villella. Many hotels are haunted by former staffers, he says, perhaps because spirits stick close to places where they spent a lot of time when certifiably alive. "I think a lot of people, when they die, they don't know where to go, so they just resume their old life."
