Hotel Vancouver

Hotel Vancouver is haunted by a regular patron of the hotel’s ballroom back in the 1930s and ’40s. Jennie Pearl Cox died in a car accident in front of the building in 1944, and some say her spirit still visits. Guests have been assigned a room only to go back to the front desk claiming that a lady in red was already using that room. It was the ghost, wearing the same red dress she was in when she died. The ghost also has been seen in the elevators, and is so popular that the hotel bar even has named a drink after her.

  1. My sisters ex husband worked there and a bunch of them and friends were being silly in the halls after a few cocktails, just general laughing..they were a bit boisterous at one point and they apparently all saw a guy dressed in an older period bell hop suit ( No member of staff wore a bell hop uniform ) from the past peeked out from around the corner and made the “shhhhh” motion with his finger. they turned the corner seconds later and there was no man there. Shes not the type to create these things and her husband fully vouched for this event as well. Weird!
