Hauntings of Hotel Phillips
The narrow hallways and dimly lit corridors of the Hotel Phillips are home to many spirits. In recent years, the hotel has attempted to silence these ghostly encounters, but the staff and guests of this haunted stay know otherwise.
One ghost, in particular, is said to linger in and around Room 1513. Her tale is said to be a tragic one. A young woman, shot dead by her gangster lover, still roams the hallways, terrified and bleeding. She holds her hands up to her chest, seemingly in shock that her beloved has injured her so gravely. One visitor staying in Room 1513 tells of a restless night’s sleep, in which the young woman cried out by her bedside, both in physical and mental distress. Staff often see the flash of her white-laced hemline, brushing against walls and doors. Her panicked face is donned with red hair and flashing eyes.
Her gangster lover can also be felt near the room. An ominous presence, guests often move from Room 1513 after claiming a man has been standing at the foot of their bed, then vanishing as they turn on the light.
A guest once staying in Room 803 reported the signs of lights in his room. While taking pictures of friends, his eye was distracted by a ball of light, streaking over their heads. He attempted to take a picture of the light, but it had vanished.
Room 913 is known to be particularly active. Guests often find themselves awoken by the sounds of knocking and tapping. One guest, attempting to ignore the sounds, decided to try and sleep, hoping the spirits would go away. But the longer they tried to ignore the rattling, the louder it became. The feeling of panic in the room was too much and the guest quickly changed rooms.
Other guests staying at the Hotel Phillips claim that items in their rooms move about on their own. After a night’s sleep, guests have awoken to find controllers, hairbrushes, and other small items, on the other side of the room from where they left them the night before.
