The 1918 Renaissance Casa De Palmas Hotel said to be haunted by the ghost of an elderly lady who appears in the basement. Another female apparition, or perhaps two, have been seen wearing black veils. Police officers were once called to check on a strange woman walking around on one of the building’s towers, and they found themselves trapped inside. The phones have been known to behave strangely in the building as well.

  1. I actually work at this hotel. there is alot going on here. Equipment being turned up hotter, radio volumes going up, pots and pans swinging doors opening and soda machine turning on..That is all just in the kitchen. Ive even caught things out of the corner of my eye like someone walking by. knowing it cant be because its 4 am and no one is in the kitchen but me.

  2. Well I am 14, me my sister and my parents stayed at Casa de Palmas on the 27th of June. On the trip upstairs my father and I knew something felt wrong about this place. Once we walked into the room my dad complained about the floor feeling uneven as if he had one leg shorter than the other and that something touched his foot. Past that we enjoyed ourselves at the pool. Then towards like 2 in the morning I wake up to use the bathroom, I then notice there are three pairs of scissors around the room and they are open. Us not knowing where the scissors came from we left and checked in somewhere else.

  3. I stayed at this hotel a few years ago and stayed on the third floor. In the middle of the night, I woke up to all the lights on and my blankets moving. It also felt like I was enveloped in electricity. I stayed in a different room after that but did not and could not sleep, and didn’t sleep well for a few months after that.

  4. At 2:59 am in the morning of January 19th, as I am asleep, laying on my right side with my left shoulder pointing upward toward the ceiling, my gold necklace dragged upward toward the ceiling against my left shoulder and I felt a tightness of the necklace press against the right side of my neck. Felt as though something was trying to pull the necklace from around my neck. I gathered the sheets around my neck and went right back to sleep. Figured the spirit wasn’t there to harm, just letting me know that I was being watched over.

  5. I stayed in this hotel for two nights in January 2016, and on the second night when I was almost asleep the phone across the room turned on by itself and I was treated to a dialtone over the speaker that then turned to a busy signal. I pulled the covers up over my head and stayed in bed I was so freaked out. The next morning I inspected the phone on the desk and everything appeared normal. This was on the third floor.

  6. I stayed at this hotel last night and as I was getting ready for bed, with the desk lamp on and looking up at the ceiling…I suddenly saw a shadow move in front of light of the lamp on the ceiling and afterwards couldn’t sleep. I’m so glad this was just a one night stay.

  7. My wife and I stayed at this hotel on the third floor,second room from the end of the hall. I woke up at around 2:00 am because I heard the phone ringing. I answered it and no one was one the line. I went back to sleep,again, the phone started ringing and again, I answered it and I heard a voice on the other line that sounded like a mumbling or like someone was playing a record backwards.To my dismay, my wife never heard it and she is a very light sleeper.I hung up, then left the phone off the hook. I told her about it the next morning and she said that she was overcome with a deep sleep, she couldn’t explain it.

  8. I was asleep when I suddenly felt the room very cold, like when you open the refrigerator. I had to cover myself really good. This is lasted a minute or two.

    If you cannot read above, I came in late to the hotel and entered room 322. I took off my uniform (our airline lays over there) and took my water bottle out of the bag and set it next to the tv, I had to go to the bathroom, nature was calling. Bathroom door was slightly ajar while I was in the bathroom. I came out 15 minutes later to watch tv and I saw the bottle like this (see picture above). I KNEW it was a ghost that turned the bottle upside down!!! I NEVER knew the hotel was haunted and I had layovers there DOZENS of times without incident. I told the ghost to leave me alone and leave my room. I actually stayed another night in the room and nothing happened.

    • Me and my husband stayed in this same room on our wedding night unaware of the hauntings that occurred here previously. Nothing like this happened, but both me and my husband had nightmares all night. I had dreams of ghosts flooding the hallways, and a small girl all dressed in black standing in the corner of this room. When we woke up we both shared our dreams and he said he had the same dream. Mind you neither of us knew this hotel was haunted, but from the beginning we had a very eerie feeling as we walked the hallways. Definitely a night to remember since we’re both fans of all things scary! And it was our first night as husband and wife(:
