Want to travel somewhere spooky this Halloween? Stay at one of these potentially haunted hotels.
Everyone knows this hotel — or at least, every horror fan does. The Stanley is known as the stand-in for the hotel featured in The Shining. Beyond this creepy connection, though, the hotel is rumored to be actually haunted by the spirits of previous guests and employees.
The Colonial Inn in Concord, Massachusetts, was built in the early 1700s, so you know it’s seen a lot, including the Revolutionary War. The inn was actually a field hospital during the war and one of the guestrooms served as an operating room — and now it’s the most haunted post in the building.
Jump forward in time a little bit, and see some ghosts of a more recent nature. Marilyn Monroe is the most famous ghost guest at The Hollywood Roosevelt. Monroe lived at the hotel for a time and reportedly now haunts its halls. Guests report cold spots and odd phone calls.
This boutique property is considered the most haunted hotel in Alabama. The Mobile hotel offers just shy of 40 guestrooms, outfitted with historic furnishings. People claim to see the original owners of the property hanging about and objects move on their own.
Another haunted inn, the Admiral Fell Inn in Baltimore was built in the 1700s and resident ghosts include sailors and former employees. All of these figures are blamed on the hotel’s previous life as a theater and boarding house, where many prostitutes and sailors lived during its heyday.

Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly (and, now, Sisterly) Love, has been climbing the charts as a city to see for years — this year in particular. A few reasons? Constant innovation, world-class dining, personality to spare and a slew of fun events and locales.
IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht. The sun warms the deck, a soft breeze dances off the water, and an über-attentive crew caters to your every whim while the personal chef whips up the finest of the local cuisine with all of your culinary preferences top of mind. All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.
