Haunted Hotels > Hay Adams Hotel
The Hay-Adams Hotel may be haunted by the spirit of Clover Adams, the wife of original owner Henry Adams. It is said that the spirit of Mrs. Adams, who committed suicide in 1885, inhabits the fourth floor of the hotel.
Staff have experienced the mysterious opening and closing of locked doors, clock radios mysteriously turning on and off, the sounds of a woman crying softly in a room or stairwell, and the voice of a woman asking a housekeeper, "What do you want?" in an empty room. Some housekeepers say they have been called by name and received a hug while cleaning rooms.
These incidents happen most frequently during the first two weeks of December, around the anniversary of her death.
