Listverse has the stories of ten hotels with legends of ghosts or other spirits that roam the halls. A spooky tale doesn't hurt business; in fact it's great advertising, even when management denies the haunting. That's the case at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
The Fairmont management adamantly denies any ghostly activity, but stories abound. One spirit frequently witnessed is that of a bride allegedly killed in a tragic accident right before walking down the aisle. The other, far more whimsical tale involves an elderly bellhop named Sam McAuley. Sam so adored the hotel that after he passed, he continued to work there. Guests report a white-haired bellhop helping them, only to vanish before they have a chance to tip him.
