  1. Did not know the history of the hotel prior to checking in. Spent one night for local event. Room was in Cloister near an elevator. 2:00 am dark shadow in ceiling corner of room watching, 4:00 am green blotch on ceiling between myself and glass closet doors. Rose to call front desk to ask if the hotel had a past of paranormal and found a rose next to the phone. Checked out with strong smell of flowers filling the lobby.

  2. Work at Boca Resort. While using bathroom in Great hall, Urinal randomly flushes. No one else was in bathroom. Urinals work either off of motion sensor or push button. No one around to activate either
