Colorado s Stanley Hotel was opened by F O Stanley, the inventor of America s Stanley Steamer automobiles, in 1907 and paranormal activity has been a part of the hotel s history ever since. Elisabeth Wilson, a former housekeeper, who died at the hotel in 1911, is said to have returned to assist guests in Room 217 in the past, unpacking and storing away their belongings. The sounds of children running and giggling down the halls are also regularly reported on the fourth floor. The ghosts of Mr Stanley and his wife are said to pass through the lobby quite frequently, according to staff members and guests. Mrs Stanley is also said to be heard playing her piano in the music room.
