United World Colleges - Montezuma Castle

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  United World Colleges - Montezuma Castle

The current Montezuma Castle Hotel is built on top of two separate hotels which previously burnt down. There have been several reports of hauntings here. Opera music is heard when no one is around, and the ghost of the former proprietor walks around the hotel’s corridors at night. After the making of a film at the hotel, the spirits at the hotel became somewhat restless. Ever since, the ghost of what appears to be a woman has been seen in the main tower at night.

The building is now known as the Davis International Center, and houses several college facilities for United World Colleges.
