  1. My wife and I stayed here a few years ago. We had a single room on the 2nd floor. During the first night I heard the floor squeaking from footsteps. I thought it was my wife going to the bathroom. In the morning she said she hadn’t got up during the night. We decided to stay another night to see if our visitor would return. My wife heard footsteps the second night which she thought were mine, but I hadn’t got up either. I believe we did have a the same visitor both nights.
    We stayed there again a few years later and requested the same room, but there was renovation going on and that part of the hotel was closed. We didn’t have any visitors that time. I guess the ghost was resting during renovation. We do look forward to our next visit at The Grand Imperial.
