Haunts of the Driskill Hotel

by The 100 Companies

Since opening its doors 136 years ago, several spooky spectres have been rumored to haunt downtown’s Driskill Hotel.

The first tale is of two brides, who – after being jilted at the altar one century apart – retreated to Room 525 and killed themselves. One roams the halls wearing a Victorian gown; the other carries a pistol, before vanishing into the fateful suite.

Guests have also heard the giggling of a child who tripped and fell to her death on the hotel’s grand staircase while chasing a ball (which bounces audibly after dark).

Then, there’s that cigar-smoking ghost Annie Lennox experienced first-hand.
