Haunted hotels for Halloween

Yes, it's a press release, but still... the Delaware North Companies have released a list of some of their properties that are rumored to be haunted: "Haunted Hideaways for Halloween Spook-Seekers". A sampling:

Yosemite National Park’s Wawona Hotel: During the 1920s, a small plane crashed outside the Wawona Hotel, and the badly injured pilot was taken to Moore Cottage, one of the hotel’s guest units. Tragically, before the doctor arrived, the pilot died from his injuries. Since then, both employees and guests have seen a ghostly figure dressed as a pilot -- complete with leather jacket, head gear with goggles and a white silk scarf -- walking down Moore Cottage’s inside stairs. Employees at the Wawona Hotel also recount the story of an evening in 1985, when a group watching television got an unwelcome surprise as a 10-foot section of the carpet raised three inches off the floor and moved across the room toward them. [...] Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds: Employees at this California state park location continue to captivate guests with tales of “The Lady by the Sea,” a beautiful specter seen walking along the coast. Asilomar is also home to a haunted banquet room, where grand galas have been known to continue even after the guests have left and the room has gone dark.
Note: I don't profit from this in the slightest, I have no ties of any kind to Delaware North - I just thought it might make for a cool vacation (any time of the year)...
