Conrad Hilton was still in the early stages of his career when he built the Hilton Hotel in the 1930s in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Opened in 1939, the hotel became known as the Hotel Andaluz after going through a renovation in the 2000s. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, there are a few ghosts haunting the halls of this older hotel.
One of those spirits is a woman seen in the lobby and on some of the upper floors of the hotel. Described as looking nervous and unsettled, some say that she looks and acts like she doesn’t belong in the hotel. Many describe her as wearing a dress from the 1940s or early 1950s. Though no one knows who she is, some think she might be a woman who stayed in the hotel with her lover or spouse prior to the man shipping off to World War II. If he never came back from the war, it might explain why she came back to the hotel where they were so happy together and why she seems so confused.
The Hotel Andaluz is also home to a ghostly older woman who wanders the fourth floor in an old-fashioned pink dress. Guests report seeing her appear and disappear around sundown. The ballroom of the hotel is also haunted by a group of former guests who seem to enjoy laughing, dancing and listening to the music that no one else can hear. Though ghostly activity is common at the hotel, most of the activity occurs later in the day.
