EMILY MORGAN HOTELSAN ANTONIO, TEXASWith its storied history of…


With its storied history of bloody battles and lore, the Alamo City lives with the dead. Many places around town have been the site of ghost investigations, including the Emily Morgan Hotel – the third most-haunted in the world, according to USA Today.

Formerly, the building was the Medical Arts Building, which had a morgue and a psychiatric ward.. The name originates from the famous story of a servant girl, Emily D. West, who wooed the Mexican General Santa Anna during the Battle of San Jacinto. Combining impressive architecture, a long history of tales from the Medical Arts Building, and the significance behind the name, The Emily Morgan Hotel is a landmark in the state of Texas. It was recognized by the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Alamo Plaza Historic District in 1977.

The boutique Emily Morgan Hotel is located right across from the Alamo, so you can imagine that there may be some spiritual influence. And there is! The ninth floor is said to be haunted by the spirits of wounded Alamo defenders. Guests have reported slamming doors and moving objects.

Other very haunted areas, besides the ninth floor, in the hotel are the seventh, eleventh, or twelfth floors.Here reports of other unexplained noises and the feeling of being touched are pretty frequent. USA Today recommends reserving a room on the 7th floors if guests want to welcome a ghostly visitor to their sleepover.
