Banff Springs Hotel
Evocative of the Overlook Hotel in the Shining, this is Canada’s haunted hotel. An anonymous young bride, who died of a broken neck on her wedding day in 1932, has reportedly been seen by patrons within these grounds. Dressed in her wedding gown, she was descending a staircase. She tripped on her gown and fell down the stairs. Her ghost can reportedly be seen dancing alone in the dining room, only to burst into flames. There’s another ghostly resident who is reportedly a former employee of the hotel. A bellhop who died after announcing his retirement in 1976, Sam Macauley, has lived on in the eyes of some guests and hotel staff members who claim to have seen visions of the man in full uniform, helping out guests just as if he had never left.
