Hotel San Carlos, Haunted Phoenix Landmark

449f_7 The Hotel San Carlos, created in 1928 and first owned by local business tycoon Dwight Heard, is still a Central Avenue fixture. One of its current owners, Robert Melikian, wrote a book “Hotel San Carlos” which not only tells the story of the historic tourist attraction but also regales its readers with the early downtown hospitality and business history.

One of the most interesting things I learned was that the hotel has ghosts.  One was a young woman, jilted at the altar, who reserved a top-floor room and then jumped to her death. People say they see her at the foot of their beds at night.  Between October and May, on Friday and Saturday nights, anyone can join a ghost tour of the hotel and close-by haunted areas. A tour of the hotel is included.
