I ignored it but when amanda entered and we went into the bedroom she told me that she is sensing some funny thing in the room as well so we left the bedroom and went back to the living room. (note, it was a suite so the bedroom was separate than the living room). That said, we had our session on the couch and it was very nice, although she told me that she was seeing things in the bedroom. I think the spirits were excited to see her naked so they were hanging around. I agree with her that there was some spooky stuff since i thought i saw somethng moving as well. Anyway a bit wierd nite but at the end I had to leave the room since I did not want to be alone there ! The next nite she visited me and it was excellent again since the room was normal since I had changed rooms, and we had a wonderful time. I will miss her when I go back to my home. Oh yes, she smokes but I don't mind that since I find it sexy watching a women smoke.

    Where were you staying Nick?

    Nick, check out the movie "1408" based on the short story by Stephen King. You will see that John Cusack had a very similar experience to you in terms of the room. However, I am not sure I would recommend to you what Cusack ended up doing at the end of the movie, as you could be arrested.

    You did the right thing. It is the hotel's obligation to provide you with a non-haunted room. If the room is possessed by spirits you should change rooms (as you did) and leave the burden of exorcism to the hotel. It is not your problem.

    She saw things in the bedroom? You switched rooms because you were scared staying in that room by yourself? Come on, people! You've been watching too many scary movies lately & your imaginations are getting the best of you!

    I have to admit I am curious now about which hotel & room it was.

    Nick-

    Some of the older hotels or hotels in older buildings have had murders and/or suspicious and unexplained deaths, and may be prone to having rooms possessed by spirits in some cases. Again, refer to the movie "1408" where this topic is probed more deeply. The next time you go to that hotel ask the manager if the hotel maintains records of unexplained deaths at the hotel, or in the building since 1919. This is the research that was done by the Cusack character in "1408." If you are ruthless enough in your research, I am willing to bet good money that some time between 1919 and now, there was an unexplained death in the room you stayed in, or in the building. The hotels will not usually tell you this shit, but this shit does happen, and it's a question of talking to the right manager and perhaps giving him some money to get these records.

    By the ways, has anyone noticed that the Omni has no 13th floor? Does anyone know the reason for this?

    I noticed this as well. Its not that uncommon. I am told that a few airports in Europe don't have gates with the number 13 (Geneva was mentioned to me but I have never been there).

    Many, many hotels don't have a 13th floor. I was actually surprised to see that the Intercontinental does have one. Technically though, they all have a 13th floor it's just renamed 14th.

    Seems to be a Montreal thing - superstition only - many office buildings downtown don't have a 13th floor.

    On my first of two stays at the Intercontinental in February, I was given a room on the 13th floor. I didn't think much about it at the time, and the room was fine (no presences or spirits that bothered me). However, I stayed there from a Thursday to a Sunday, and the whole time I was there I saw maybe 2 other people on the floor. The floor was dead quiet 99.9% of the time, except when the maids came around. Afterwards, I attributed this to it being the dead time of year for hotels (February). In retrospect, however, I am not sure if that was the only reason.

    Probably all of this discussion on haunted rooms/hotels should be moved to another thread if the Mods can do that. While it's interesting to discuss, this thread is supposed to be about Amanda.

    Beave, '1408' was just a movie. It wasn't based on a true story. All fiction.

    You actually believe this crap?
    Come on man, you're not 10 years old anymore!
    What next? Sightings of Dracula? The Mummy? The Wolf Man?

    This goes off topic now - but only believing what you can see does not really belong to the 21st century. I like your comments in general Mr. Doc but here you prove that you are not really spiritual....

    Not believing in ghosts & a bunch of momojumbo has nothing to do with being spiritual or not. When i was a child, i believed in ghosts & that Dracula & the Wolfman existed. Hell, the Creature from the Black Lagoon scared the hell out of me at one time. But i can't believe that there are grown-ups on this board who still believe in this nonsense. Do they think of werewolves everytime there's a full moon? Do they still think of vampires everytime they see blood? It's total nonsense!

    But one thing about Mr. Doc, though....he certainly is karismatic!
