Sonoma Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Sonoma Hotel

This 1879 hotel has been the site of several odd occurrences over the years, which are usually attributed to a poltergeist at work. Doors are known to open and close of their own accord, and strange noises are heard during the night.

  1. We have stayed here a number of times, usually on the 2nd floor. A couple of years ago, we stayed on the 3rd floor at the front of the hotel. I was asleep; my husband was awake, reading. He says that the closet door opened quietly, and an amorphous mist came out of it, floated over to the bed, and hovered above me. He just looked at it (did not feel afraid) and it then exited through the crack of the door into the hall.

  2. In 2001, we stayed there during Thanksgiving weekend. We stayed on the second floor in a room that had a window that overlooked the square. My husband and I heard a rattle on the door of the room, and we both felt a presence cross the room, “sit” on our bed, and leave out of the window. We did not feel afraid and felt that the presence entered and left within about a 30-second span. We both agreed that it felt like a ghost (and this was before the internet and any knowledge of ghosts in the hotel).
