If you're looking for a truly fun and spine-tingling experience this Halloween, you really can't go wrong by booking a room at a haunted hotel and trying your best to get a decent night's sleep.
Forget haunted houses. With how many people have passed through (and sometimes passed away in) hotels over the years, it's not a huge shock that some of the most popular places travelers rest their heads are home to restless spirits who have never bothered to check out of their guest rooms.
Take a look at these photos to see 10 of the most haunted hotels in the United States. Booking an overnight stay at any one of these properties might come with a spooky upgrade you'll never forget.

Stephen King based his famous novel, The Shining, on this hotel for a reason. Guests at The Stanley have heard the sounds of children running down the halls, and former owners F.O. and Flora Stanley make their presence known as well.
