Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza

A ghostly Lady in Green walks the Hall of Mirrors and the mezzanine. She was seen often by construction workers in 1983, while the hotel was undergoing renovations. Legend has it that she was the wife of a worker who was killed during the hotel’s construction in 1930. So the story goes, the body of her husband was never recovered, and she ghost searches for him endlessly. Perhaps seeing the 1983 construction workers awoke her spirit in hopes that one of them would be her lost husband?

  1. My daughter had her commencement exercise there Oct 06, of this year. My grand-daughter needed to use the restroom so I walked her through the mirrored hallway to the ladies’ lounge. The feeling I had was of being watched, followed…which of course would be understandable as there were other women walking about and one’s reflection was always in sight. Still, this was not the reason for the dread that surrounded me. I don’t know what was there. I don’t know why no one else seemed to appear ill at ease. I just know that I hated that walk and couldn’t wait to get our “business” done and get back out with the graduates and their families. I never spoke of this incident to my daughter or her family. I didn’t want to take away from her special day. To date… I still get a chill up and down my body, goosebumps, and a tightness in my chest whenever I think of that hallway.

  2. I will never stay in this hotel alone again! I was in room 1101 – all the way at the end of the hall. During my stay I did not see another soul on my wing. On the first night of the stay, I was awaken by footsteps on the carpet in my room (I was by myself). I went back to sleep- not realizing there was a history of haunting. Throughout the day, I kept feeling someone tug on the back of the shear light jacket I was wearing. I kept turning around to see no one there. Finally, on my last night- after having ridiculously hard time falling asleep, I once again woke at 3:30- this time, I felt as if someone was sitting on top of me. I couldn’t move, and when I tried to say a Hail Mary (my go to when I’m scared)- I found I couldn’t get my mouth to move. I finally resigned myself to saying it in my head. I went back to sleep and woke up to excruciating leg cramps at 5:00am. At that point I got up, got dressed, and left the room.
