This hotel is known by locals as the "Fort Shelby Hotel," which was its original name when it began operation in 1916. The building sat vacant for years and according to stories, a homeless man named Al used it as temporary sleeping spot before a plumbing pipe burst and he got killed after getting stuck in the sewage. Years later, his bones were found in the muck. Then Doubletree bought the building, spending $90 million on renovations! Al's apparition has been spotted walking through the halls and in the lobby.
Someone walked in my room to say hi?
I stayed one night here in room 324. Had no clue of the history of the building or anything! I woke up probably an hour before my alarm in the morning to what I thought was someone entering my room. I was super groggy and out of it (it was still dark) and I vaguely remember checking the time and drifting back off to sleep. I woke up later and recalled that I could have sworn someone came into my room this morning but there were no signs of entry and my door bolt was still latched. Also when it happened I weirdly didn’t feel alarmed at all... as you’d think one would if someone walked into their room! I then researched if the hotel was haunted and viola here I am haha.
