  1. I worked at the Equinox and one night I was on the 3rd floor I had went to leave the room I had just cleaned and as I opened the door something dissipated right in front of my face! It was bright, white dots just scattering away from what it looked like to be a person figure. They say Mary stayed on the 3rd floor and I believe it was her since she is seen as a “quickly vanishing apparition”. Then either the same night or another, I encountered Mary’s son. I walked past the staircase that lead down to the lobby floor and caught a boy sitting staring at me through the posts on the stair case out of the corner of my eye. I stopped, backed up and looked where I thought I had seen him and he was no longer there! This hotel is haunted, but it is not bad entities they are harmless!

  2. We were in 321 at the equinox hotel – it’s the third floor of the south wing. I woke up to ice the bathroom in the middle of the night. As I was sitting in the bathroom with the door open, I saw a woman. It took a moment to register what it was, and then the lights went out! I jumped up and turned them back on and hid in bed and felt unsettled the rest of the night. I couldn’t really sleep.

  3. My Daughter and I stayed there for Mother’s Day in 2022. What a disappointment with the thin walls, low quality food, chipped – damage furniture and poor parking. Only thing scary was the bill
