Ghosts of the Camino Real

The Camino Real is said to be haunted by the ghost of a woman in a white gown.  When the ghostly woman is near, men will say they smell a scent of beauty and perfume, while women sense a foul odor and have a nervous sense about them. This ghostly woman is often found in the basement and has been known to roam the halls of the building with a look of sadness and distress on her face.

Who is the Woman in White that haunts the Camino Real?

The stories we’ve heard of the ghost of the woman in white suggest that she was a bride who was never married. It is said that one of the first events ever held at the Camino Real was a wedding. The wedding was held on the 10th floor, which was the top floor of the hotel in that era. The bride was left all alone at the altar as the groom and one of the bridesmaids never showed for the wedding. In her sorrow, the bride flung herself from the building to her death.

    Guys, this hotel is no Joke. After having to spend a week in the hotel for business, I wouldn’t dare to step foot in the lobby. At the third day of the visit, I thought I was going insane on seeing a woman in a white gown. It Turns out, I wasn’t the only one seeing her. I took photos but no one believed me. I was scared, terrified actually. It was an eye-opening experience and i now had to believe there’s a spirit world. Just be cautious when you go, Please?

    My son is presently working there on the remodel. He has called me scared to death of the things he has seen. Don’t want to work on the 6th floor nor be in the basement. Many of the workers experiencing scary things including being touched.

    Daughter saw a dress in the elevator and not a pleasant one. She also saw a little girl twice in that hotel in the fourth floor. We have stayed here like four times. Last night it was as if someone was trying to enter the room which I had never experienced.
