  1. In 1992, I lived in Colorado Springs and commuted to to work at the Imperial Hotel in Idaho Springs. While who one day a bad blizzard hit the area. Those who traveled to work were not permitted to leave town because of the blizzard conditions. We all were snowed in town for 3 days. Those who didn’t live in town was given rooms to stay in. I’m a sensitive and I can definitely tell you that there are spirits in that hotel. Spending 3 days (72 hours) in that building would definitely turn any skeptic into a believer and the believers know what’s there so we all respected the building and the spirits that reside there indefinitely.

  2. My daughters and i stayed in room 64 last night! We all 3 awoke at the same time to the light being on. None of us had gotten out of bed! The light is operated by a remote control that happened to be in a holster on the wall.

  3. We stayed here one night and kept hearing loud knocking on the door of the hotel room with a cane we opened the door quickly and no one was there this occurred multiple times during our stay.
