Going down? Hotel Monterey (1972) in New York City. Image Source: She Blogged By Night.
Now, here is an odd coincidence. A few days ago when I was writing this piece on haunted hotels, I kept thinking all morning of a friend of mine who is a travel writer. I wondered if he has seen any ghosts in his many travels, especially at inns and B. & B.s. Later that night, we happened to chat online. He mentioned he was staying, at that moment, in a haunted hotel. He described where he was (the residential part of the hotel was a converted house), and what was happening (noises, poltergeist activity in the room). The management jokingly mentioned the house was haunted. I suggested maybe they were responsible, but he didn't think so. He said no one else was there in the building. He said, "I can't believe I am live chatting a real haunting." I talked to him through the night to keep him company. "Just remember, you're not alone," I said. He said, "I know. That's the problem."
