The majority of the sightings of the ghostly figures occur on the upper floors of the north tower.

Other guests of the hotel had more terrifying experiences.

One woman was staying in a suite with her young son. Her son’s entire demeanor changed while in the hotel suite. He became violent towards his mother and himself, he was destructive and almost completely unmanageable. He behaved in a similar fashion in his grandmother’s suite. The mother also recounts a horrific experience of seeing the ghost of a blonde haired woman in their suite rummaging through things. The ghostly figure gave her a look that chilled her to the core. She took her son and left the room never to return. She made the staff remove her belongings because she was too terrified to return. Both of the suites were on the 19th floor. Other guests of the Luxor stayed in a suite on the 12th floor. They were terrorized all night. One woman had her blanket slowly pulled off her and was grabbed by an unseen hand.
