What's another haunted Idaho hotel I can stay in?
In beautiful Boise, the Owyhee Plaza Hotel is as old and legendary as the city itself. As a cultural cornerstone in the heart of downtown, this multipurpose building has been the source of spooky legends since its inception in 1910 at the hands of architectural geniuses Hummel and Tourtellotte. A century's worth of rumors tell of a spirit particularly haunting the meeting rooms and Room 136, but the plaza's most recent renovation into a series of office spaces, rented apartments, and conference rooms make pinpointing the continued haunts a challenge. Your best chance of spotting a spirit at this haunted Idaho hotel? Renting a loft. But you might just see something spooky dining at the in-house restaurant.
Boise, it seems, is rife with haunted hotels. The Historic Idanha Hotel is another of the town's notoriously spooky spots. Completed in 1901, this BoDo landmark has a surprisingly long history. Once operating as a hotel, restaurant, and piano bar (go-go dancers included), the Idanha catered to sophisticated and wealthy visitors from all across the country. Its green and white turrets stick out of the increasingly modern architecture of the city, and it’s a hard location to miss. Today, the Idanha is believed to be haunted by numerous spirits from different times in the building’s history, which, given its age and the many hats it's worn over the years, isn't a surprise!
