The 9 Spookiest Hotels In The World

One of the reasons we love historic hotels is the urban legends they've inspired — and many of them come with a spooky twist.

With Halloween just over a month away, we've rounded up seven supposedly haunted hotels known around the world for their paranormal activities. There's a possessed bed and breakfast, an eerie castle, and even a hotel room murder fit for an Agatha Christie mystery novel. Be prepared to be utterly captivated — and slightly creeped out.
