Superstition plays a role in this hotel’s haunting, some say. The largest building in Laredo, it’s also the only one to have a 13th floor. Other buildings have renumbered their floors to avoid having a 13th, for superstitious reasons. Folks say the haunt in this hotel is a former worker who died in the building. The helpful ghost has been spotted cleaning the floors, wearing his brown work uniform. He does not seem to hear people who call out to him. Reports also have been made of a strange scratching sound in the 15th floor hallway and stairs, the sound of falling objects, strange phone calls, and the sounds of children running when none are in sight.
