Rooms With A Boo!

I have a secret to tell---I do not like Halloween (Gasp!)  Maybe it's the whole don't talk to strangers, but dress up and knock on stragers' doors one day a year and ask for candy hypocrisy. Maybe I'm just over thinking it. Whatever the case, it's no treat for me. I do, however, like a good trick, or better yet, a ghost story!  Add some  travel to the mix and i'm game!
 Check out these five hotels that are worth the Halloween scene.

Look closely for the ghost bride at the Stanley Hotel  (photo courtesy of visit Estes Park)

1.      The Driskill (Austin, TX) – This hotel is considered the most haunted building in Austin, and maybe in all of  Texas, said to be frequented by the ghost of  namesake Colonel Jesse Lincold Driskill himself, a cattle baron during post civil war America. Room 525 is rumored to be the most ghostly on the property. Book it if you dare!  From October 28 – November 3, the Driskill is promoting an “All Hallow’s Eve” package that includes overnight accommodations, two Batini cocktails at check-in, a trick-or-treat turndown amenity (including a selection of sweets from the 1886 Bakery), prime access to downtown Austin’s sixth street (a Halloween hot spot) and preferred reservations for the Driskill’s “Mad Scientist” dinner on Halloween night.Package starts at $279.  Contact the hotel for booking.
