    This slide show shows some pretty interesting vacation spots that are rumored to be haunted. Anyone vistited any of these? The Chelsea Hotel and Hotel Hollywood look interesting.

    I've been to the Queen Mary and the La Fonda. Both kinda creepy...but saw/witnessed no ghosts while I was there. :(

    Both still worth seeing though.

    My favorite haunted hotel is La Playa in Carmel.

    Legend has it that the ghost of Angela Ghiradelli (yes, of the Chocolate Family) haunts the hotel.

    The La Fonda in Santa Fe is pretty interesting and the building itself is very beautiful. At one time trials were held in the lobby along with the handed down judgements (executions). I think a lawman was also gunned down at the hotel at some point. Lots of potential for ghostly activity . :)

    No, but I spent two years in a dormitory in college (Providence, RI) that had a couple of spirits. The dorm used to be a hotel, and had a couple of violent incidents there. It wasn't the only haunted dorm on campus either. One of the other dorms used to be a nunnery, and apparently the spirits of the Sisters who used to live there were none too pleased with certain male residents in the space where their rooms used to be.

    I have been staying in the The Hotel California.

    I keep trying to check out, but they will never let me leave.

    They have wireless internet though...so that is a good thing.

    No haunted dorms at my college...as far as I know at least. But a few guys I used to know liked to take Ouija boards to the local cemetery at midnight. Went along a few times. Oh the stupid things kids will do for fun in a small town.

    My house is haunted. I don't need to go looking any further.

    But I do go ghosthunting regularly. Great fun.
