1. Sorrento Hotel, Seattle
Many guests have reported seeing a woman's ghost on the 4th floor by Room 408 at this place downtown near CenturyLink Field & the Seattle Art Museum. They've also heard footsteps and have seen glasses that supposedly moved on their own at the bar.
2. Davenport Hotel, Spokane
There have been several paranormal sightings at this 1914 hotel located downtown, but perhaps the most common sighting is a woman walking along the mezzanine, looking over the railing to the lobby below. It's thought that the ghost is Ellen McNamara, who fell to her death in 1920. In fact, the 95th anniversary of her death just passed the other day on August 17th!
3. Rosario's Resort, Orcas Island
Although this historical place provides an incredibly charming experience, there have been some odd stories like hearing clunking high heels from a ghost named Alice who died in 1930, and a number of visitors who have stayed in her old room have even reported paranormal activity like feeling fingers run across their heads!
4. Panama Hotel, Seattle
Many Japanese immigrants were forced to leave their homes during WWII, and some of them stored their belongings in the basement of this hotel. The majority did not return to reclaim their items, and even today there's still some stuff remaining. It's thought that the ghosts of these people finally returned for their things and are the reason for the various reports of doors slamming, inexplicable footsteps, windows rattling, and even sightings of men and women talking!
5. The Palace Hotel, Port Townsend
Once a brothel, this hotel has been said to be haunted by multiple ghosts, including the former sea captain who constructed the building. Perhaps the most well-known apparition is a woman in a blue dress who has been seen in Rooms 3 & 4, and her presence is most notable when you get a scent of perfume.
6. Stanwood Hotel
Some have said they've seen spirits at this hotel & saloon north of Seattle. According to their website, the current owner herself has witnessed firsthand accounts of paranormal activity. She captured what appears to be an apparition-type cloud moving behind the bar as seen on her surveillance system!
