Delta Bessborough is a 10-story, four-star hotel built by the Canadian National Railway from 1928 to 1932. It looks like a castle, and is nicknamed “The Bess” (pronounced “bez”). The marble in the lobby has a crack with a legend. Some say it is from a former employee who fell seven stories and died on the spot, and may be the one called the ghostly Man in Gray, who wears a gray suit and fedora. He smiles at folks who notice him.

  1. I have couple stories from one night. Back in 2014, I was on a road trip and stayed in that hotel for one night before i drove back to Calgary. Around 9PM, i took my camera gear out and went to the field behind the hotel by the river and as I was setting up my camera and playing with the settings of the camera for the night shot. Out of nowhere, a shabby looking person showed up right next to me and asked me what i was doing etc. I told him that I was trying to take a night shot of this historic hotel. I thought he was probably there to rob my camera gears or money etc. I was getting ready to defend myself and when i turned around to talk to him, I didn’t see anything in that big open area or in the lighted gazebo. I got bit scared and packed my gear and came back to the hotel. Oh one more thing, he asked me if i was staying in that hotel and in response i told him “yes”. Then he told me that if I were you, I would be careful and literally vanished. The man had long hair, some marks on his face – which i couldn’t clearly see as it was getting dark and a long grey colored coat.
    Came back to the hotel went back to my room and found out that my tv and phone wasn’t working. I was bit annoyed and went downstairs and lodged a complaint at the front desk. After that I came back to my room and within two mins, there was a knock on my door. I knew it was the service man so I opened the door and what I found is that ….a similar looking guy was standing at the door and told me to check my phone and tv. I got scared a bit again and thought myself what kind of hotel is this? That they dont have a proper maintenance person. I thought that may be its after hours so the hotel management sent somebody else. Anyways, he smiled and left. As I was watching tv and slowly getting relaxed on the bed, there was a knock on my door. I opened the door and there was a man at the door and told me that he was there to see the tv and the phone issues. Then i described the other man and told this maintenance person that he already came and fixed it. The maintenance person then told me, oh ok and said, “I am the only maintenance person on this shift working” and smiled and left. I stayed up the whole night and started sharing my horror story on the facebook. Can anyone explain or tell me who were those two people, looked alike?
