The Story Behind This Haunted Hotel In Colorado Is Truly Creepy
♫ Welcome to the Hotel Colorado, such a creepy place… with a disturbing history. ♫ (Or something like that.) The historic Centennial State is chock-full of scary and allegedly paranormal locations, but the story behind Glenwood Springs’s Hotel Colorado may be the most frightening of them all. Here is why we think the Hotel Colorado is the most haunted hotel in the state:
Built in 1891 (and opened in 1893), Hotel Colorado is one of the state's oldest hotels that has served a number of distinguished guests over the years, including Presidents William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt.
(A fun, yet somewhat unrelated tidbit: The teddy bear is rumored to have been invented by Hotel Colorado maids who pieced together scrap material as a gift for President Roosevelt during his stay!)
In addition to serving as a retreat for presidents and dignitaries, the hotel has also served as a Navy hospital, architectural marvel, and even as a film set.
Just what makes this beautiful and historic structure haunted? According to hotel guests and employees, it is not uncommon to hear the sound of a woman's blood curdling scream (thought to be that of a former chambermaid murdered by her lover in one of the guest rooms)...
...to see a ghostly female standing over sleeping male guests...
...or to witness a little Victorian girl playing around the hotel with her ball.
In addition to these actual apparitions, there have also been reports of elevators moving on their own and unexplainable smells.
