For individuals looking for a haunted experience, Le Pavillon will not disappoint. Guests of this notably haunted New Orleans hotel have frequently reported odd occurrences like their shower turning on in the middle of the night, sheets being pulled to the bottom of the bed, or having travel items found in locations they had no business being located in. The most popular ghosts are a young woman, a couple, and a young man from the 1960's. Each has their own particular story related to what happened to them and why they come back to haunt the hotel. Staff describes many of the ghosts to be very lifelike and not the typical lucid idea of what people have believe ghosts to be. The most common locations for a sighting are in the lobby where the ghost named Anna is often seen. Other guests get the surprise of awaking to supernatural light at the foot of their bed.
One of the most notable and frightening tales involves an individual in town on business. He awoke early in the morning to an elderly woman stroking his head and telling him "I will never let you go. You, are mine." Frightened, the man gathered his things and left the hotel within the hour. The hotel was convinced that they should bring in paranormal investigators. Three different groups came in with varying successes. The two most notable experiences and conclusions were contacting up to 100 spirits, leading another group to believe the hotel is built on a portal to the other side. If you are looking for an authentic and interesting haunted experience in the heart of the French Quarter, Le Pavillon is your haunted New Orleans hotel.
