'On the main floor, a notable ghost named Bobbie dates back to at least WWII. The story goes that she was a nurse at the naval hospital during the war, and was allegedly killed by a jealous lover and officer stationed at the hotel. The rumor is, they were shipped out to cover up their crimes, but the story was leaked by local hospital workers.' - Hotel Colorado
Some are pricier, like Denver's Brown Palace Hotel and the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs, while others come at more of a bargain through Airbnb, like The Black Monarch of Victor. But all reportedly have a rich paranormal presence.
This Halloween, book a stay at one of these haunted hotels... if you dare. Or stay home, binge on trick-or-treat candy and watch The Shining again. Up to you.
