The Driskill Hotel, Texas
Built in 1886 right in the middle of downtown Austin, The Driskill Hotel is still a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. However, just walking into the hotel will instantly give you a “oh ok there’s probably ghosts here” kind of vibe. It also doesn’t help that there’s a giant mural of Col. Jesse Driskill that will stare into your sole at the top of the main staircase.
As legend has it, a young girl was chasing her bouncy ball in 1887 when she fell off the main staircase meeting an untimely death. Guests and staff have said at quiet hours, you can hear a child laughing and the sounds of a bouncy ball on coming from the staircase.
The other main fable is that of the suicide brides of room 525. It’s said that two brides on their honeymoons killed themselves in the same room, 20 years apart to the day. The room is available by request only.
