One of the most haunted hotels in America is in California. Hotel del Coronado is thought to be haunted by Kate Morgan, a young girl who died around the hotel about a century ago.
Paranormal investagaters detected more than 37 readings in her alleged guest room in a single day.
David Wylie uncovers the mystery surrounding this story.
Built in 1888, the Hotel del Coronado is considered a luxury beach resort and a popular honeymoon destination for thousands of couples but the legendary hotel also has it’s share of ghostly guests.
Kate Morgan checked in in 1892 and never checked out. Kate took her own life at the hotel after spending five lonely, lovesick days waiting for a man who never arrived.
The mystery around her death has grown over the years. Legend has it a bottle of quinine pills (often used to cause miscarriage during pregnancy) was rumored to be found in her room after her death.
Some people believe that the man she was waiting for, Tom, did indeed come to the hotel that week and killed Kate himself.
We may never know the exact details of Kate Morgan’s death but the numerous reports of her ghost makes sure that her legend never dies.
Visitors promise that Kate’s spirit seems to have stayed at the hotel. Many have witnessed ghostly pranks. Guests of Kate’s rooms report everything from breezes that come from nowhere to a television set that turns off by itself.
The room where Kate stayed, room 332, was later changed to room 3312, and then again to 3327, which it remains today.
To this day, this room has become one of the most requested rooms in the entire hotel in no short part to the years of paranormal activity reported from guests and staff.
