Some buildings lend themselves better to hauntings than others.

Theaters are a prime example. If you've ever been in an empty theater out of hours you'll know the weird atmosphere that often falls over the space.

The same might be said of cinemas, or basements in large buildings, especially where there are lots of people nearby.

An empty space where there is usually a lot of people is always a little bit eerie, if not downright spooky.

Hotels are definitely among the buildings which can be classed as very spooky, and one hotel in Utah falls squarely into that category.

Anyone who has ever worked in a hotel will know about the many comings and goings that happen every day, and night.

And in a particularly old hotel, who knows what's gone on in those rooms over the years?

The Bigelow Hotel in Ogden, Utah was built in 1891, initially being known as the Reed Hotel before being rebuilt with its current name in 1927.

Despite renovations over the years it retains some of its original features including crystal chandeliers, decorative ceilings, and marble floors.

There are many stories surrounding the hotel. One included a cook falling to his death down the elevator shaft.

Since then, it has been rumoured that the elevator shaft is haunted, with the elevator reportedly moving between floors of its own accord.

But the heart of the alleged paranormal activity lies in the hotel's 11th floor.

One story from the floor concerns a woman who lived there during World War One.

It's thought that after her son died in a train accident while returning from the war she became so heartbroken that she stopped eating and died in her room on the 11th floor.

Another story is that of a woman who came to stay in the hotel on her honeymoon. She reportedly drowned in the bathtub in room 1102.

Some people who have stayed in the room have reported a peculiar presence, while some have even claimed that the faucet in the bathtub turned on by itself.

You would think she would want to turn the tap off rather than on really.

At the time, her adult son was reported to be so devastated by the death that he took his own life in the adjoining room 1101.

Some visitors claim that they hear voices coming from the 11th floor, and have even seen his apparition.

The hotel is still operational, including the 11th floor where you can still stay, if you dare!
