How about a swim?

In 1928 the tallest hotel, Hotel San Carlos, was built in Phoenix Arizona. The hotel offered air cooled rooms, which was a feature that was before it's time in 1928. If you were to go up to the roof, you would have an awesome view of Phoenix. Now days, however, all you can see is the other buildings and high rises.


A young girl dressed in her white evening gown, was waiting for her boyfriend to come and take her out for a night on the town. The boyfriend never showed up and she was heartbroken. It doesn't state the reasoning for the girl being stood up, but it hurt her so bad that she climbed to the roof of the Hotel San Carlos, which is now where the pool is located, and jumped. Lone Jensen's death was the first suicide of the city of Phoenix. She was 22 and committed suicide on May 7, 1928.


Ever since her death, there have been numerous sightings of a white figure shaped as a woman, a white cloud and cool breezes. The hotel staff will not go to any floor alone due to the sightings and the staff being so superstitious. Little children have been heard running up and down the hallways, laughing and playing. However, these children were not part of anyone belonging to the hotel, but belonging to the school that once was before the hotel. The school had a well, and I am sure you can guess what happened next. I mean who puts a well on the grounds of a school? Any way, records state that there were three or four boys that drowned in the well. The school house was closed down, but the well still remains to this day in the basement of the Hotel San Carlos, for it is the main water supply to visitors.

The penthouse still has running water, air-conditioning and electricity, but it is said no one lives up there and they will never rent it out. Hmmmmmmm.

That's creepy. Why make a hotel out of a schoolhouse where children drown?

That's just asking for trouble.

wow! weird stuff!
if there's a well at a school...you'd THINK they'd at least put something around it to keep the curious kids away...
and this SAME well is the hotel's main water supply?!!

Yuck. I wouldn't drink out of a well that CHILDREN drown. That's just icky.

Also, who would stay here? Really. It makes you wonder what goes on in the penthouse...

I couldn't read your blog at home alone at night! :)

I had surgery a couple years ago and was bedridden for quite some time - I got hooked on Ghost Adventures but I had to sleep with the light on after I watched it! :)

Thank you all for the comments. With my new job, it's hard to reply to everyone on every post, so please do not take it personal :)

Tricia: I am flattered :)
