The Embassy Suites is a far cry from the Bates Motel, but if you believe in the paranormal, keep your eyes and senses alert the next time you stay.

Cleaning staffs have experienced cold spots and spectral visitors in certain parts of the hotel, and one guest, who'd been in town for a convention, ended up leaving town early after an unnerving run-in.

The tale goes that she'd gotten into bed one night after the convention when the bathroom light flipped on. She got up and flipped it off. A second time, the light switched on and she went to flip it off but noticed the switch was firmly in the "off" position. The third time, she didn't bother getting out of bed but yelled, "knock it off" in frustration.

The next day, when she returned from her convention she found her suitcase sitting on her bed completely packed, but none of the cleaning staff or any other hotel employee said they'd done it or seen anyone do it.

Finally, this guest was in a public restroom alone when she heard the water turn on. When she emerged, a lady in old-fashioned clothing inquired, "Are you enjoying your stay?"

She murmured the polite response to the affirmative when the lady leaned in closer, looked her in the eye and said, "Are you sure?"

Needless to say, she took off quickly after that.

Apparently, the same block was once home to the the Claypool Hotel, where at least two murders occurred.

Kobrowski said one young woman, Dorothy Poole, was lured to the Claypool after graduation by the promise of a job, but ended up being stuffed in a dresser after being killed and possibly raped by the man who'd hired her.

A second woman, Naoma Riley, was a corporal on leave from Camp Atteberry in 1943 when she was found dead from cuts sustained from a broken whiskey bottle.

The story goes that Riley bought a fifth of whiskey and brought it to the hotel. While there, the front desk got a call from her room for soft drinks and ice. When the delivery boy brought the requested items, he found a mysterious woman dressed in black sitting on the bed. She told him to take a quarter from the dresser "for his trouble."

Later, there was another call for ice and the woman in black again told the delivery boy to "take a quarter for your trouble."

Meanwhile, a friend of Riley's called the room and got no answer. When the friend called back the next morning, a detective answered, and he hung up.

Apparently, when the maids came to deliver linens, they found Riley in her uniform, lying in a pool of blood, sliced around the neck and arms with a quarter next to her head.

Last year it was haunted by construction.

They will also cancel your reservation when they realize they forgot to block rooms for GC. That is more horrific than anything I just read :evil:

Yeah, but when I complained I ended up with certificates for 2 free nights stay at any Embassy Suites which I totally put to good use. And since I ended up downtown anyway I look at it as a win/win.

Construction during GenCon making things very noisy, inconvenient, and a lot of facility issues.

I continued my stay past GenCon for a few days to relax.

I had a fire alarm malfunction and the newly renovated rooms were a massive step backwards in design, comfort and felt poorly put together.

The staff I spoke with were actually embarrassed about all the stuff going on.

Pro tip if you stay at the embassy, never use the freight elevator if you are claustrophobic , it has a habit of jamming. my room mate was caught in it for about 10 minutes 2 years ago.

We had the opposite experience. My friends had a renovated room, and I had one of the non-renovated ones, and theirs was MUCH better than ours. I'm certainly hoping for a renovated room next time.

Be careful what you believe.

I have ghost hunted all over the country.

I would tend to doubt the person making the claims.
