History of Crescent Hotel
Staff and visitors have related all manner of strange experiences for which there do not seem to be any reasonable explanations.You May Also Like
MichaelMichael is the name given to the spirit alleged to frequent Room 218. Michael was one of the stonemasons who helped build the hotel. He fell to his death while working on the roof, falling all the way to the second floor. Michael is said to be a mischievous spirit who plays with lights, doors, and the television, as well as pounding on the walls. Some people have said they saw hands coming out of the bathroom mirror and heard the cries of what sounds like a man falling.
“Dr.” BakerThe infamous Norman Baker has been seen in the recreation room in the basement and at the bottom of the first floor stairway. He is dressed in his trademark white suit and purple shirt, and apparently looks rather confused. His appearance is identical to photos of Baker.
Dining Room ApparitionsAnother oft-reported phenomenon is Victorian dancers in the dining room. Apparently, many ghosts have been seen here, including that of a well-dressed gentleman who says he saw a beautiful woman there last night and is waiting for her to return. These alleged spirits are thought to be benign and more than a little cheeky. Staff have been known to come in to the dining room in the morning to find menus scattered about the room, or to find chairs have been moved around. One Christmas, the Christmas tree and all its packages were mysteriously moved from one part of the room to another.
Antique SwitchboardThe original switchboard was used for a time, but use was discontinued after it kept receiving calls from the empty basement. The basement, incidentally, was where Norman Baker spoke to cancer sufferers and convinced them to hand over huge sums of money for their treatment.
TheodoraTheodora is a ghostly figure who is said to appear to people on a regular basis. Seemingly, she introduces herself as a cancer patient before quickly disappearing.
