      Strange things have been happening at this historic hotel, mysteriously sipped coffee in the mornings, newspapers shoveled around, and sudden disappearances of items. The Jekyll Island Club Resort is a paradise-like getaway, featuring a crystal clear shoreline and brimming with lavish accommodations, but its proximity to darkness does not go unnoticed. Most notably, a ghostly bellman has been sighted at the hotel, wearing an outfit that peculiarly resembles that of a 1920s costume.

      The oldest hotel in Hawaii, Moana Surfrider, is the laid back beachy embodiment of an Island getaway that we all dream of- and also happens to be extremely haunted. Incredibly airy and intricately designed construction and atmosphere aside, this century-old hotel was the site of one of America's most famous unsolved murders. Jane Stanford was murdered mysteriously while in her room, and spooky sounds, ghostly sightings, and haunted theories have been intertwined with the hotel's story ever since.

      A historic tourist destination in the French quarters that is also home to the famous "Mrs. Clean ghost." Mrs. Clean has been resting at the hotel for generations, ensuring that the housekeeping is up to par- there are surely worse ghosts for a hotel to be haunted by. On the fourteenth floor specifically, paranormal researchers have claimed to encounter more than a dozen otherworldly entities, so make sure to stay on this floor if ghost hunting is your thing. We also highly recommend the carousel bar, which is easily one of the most iconic nighttime destinations in Nola.
