The Arlington Resort Hotel in Hot Springs, Arizona, is not only a beautiful and historic hotel, but it also made the list of haunted homes on the Ghost in My Suitcase website. Patrons of the hotel tell stories of seeing people eerily dressed in old-fashioned clothes walking down the halls or strolling through the lobby before simply disappearing into thin air. Some speak of seeing a young girl in a pink dress in the lobby. Others report the ghost of a woman wearing a wedding dress staring down the street right outside the hotel at night. Still others say that they’ve seen a bellman on the fourth level of the building. He walks through closed doors before disappearing. Add to these sightings reports of taps being turned on and off by themselves, people being brushed by something when no one is there, ghostly laughter and lights going on and off when no one is around, the hotel very well seems haunted.
Additionally, strangely enough, several rooms within the hotel have been permanently locked, and some have even been walled up to prevent both guests and hotel staff from entering them. If that doesn’t give you enough pause to wonder whether the rumors of haunting are true, nothing will.
Although there are no rumors about just what haunts the Arlington Resort Hotel or why, the building was originally four stories and was built in 1875. In 1892, the original building was razed and replaced by a larger brick building. However, the new building was destroyed by a fire in 1923. Afterwards, it was replaced with the Arlington Resort Hotel that remains standing to this day. The history of the hotel causes one to wonder whether it is the spirits of some who possibly died in the fire that haunt the hotel.
