    1. Stayed once years ago with my sports team. At the time, I thought it was just college kids being college kids teasing each other. UNTIL just now. While reminiscing about the hotel where all the bizarre things happened, I searched to remember the name of the hotel.
      One guy got caught in the elevator. One girl saw a child in a white dress run around the corner of the hallway. Another saw a misty figure in a mirror (or glass picture?)
      And, I myself smelled cigar smoke on several occasions that weekend. Staying w/my assistan, our room lamps kept flickering and once turned on in the middle of the night for about a minute waking us up, then turned off. I chalked it up to old hotel, but now…omg creepy! It was really haunted!! Unbelievable.

    2. 4yrs ago a friend and I stayed over night at the Blennerhassett Hotel and I took a digital recorder with us due to hearing about the hotels history. I had it recording into the night laying on desk near the door, my friend at 1-ish am (we just got in from late movie) asks if I heard that man yell? I said no, so I get up and play back the digital recorder sure enough along with us in the room is a man yelling over top of us talking in the back ground. Now that couldn’t be heard by my naked ear but my friend did ???? can’t explain it.

    3. When we stayed here we looked up its history and found stories that the original founder often ghosted the hotel, leaving cigar smoke and a strong cigar smell. After dinner we walked through the hallway that led to the ballrooms and at the end of it were someold chairs and a large cabinet. As we got closer we smelled more and more cigar smoke, until we got to the cabinet and the smell was very strong right there. No one else was there and the windows were closed.
