The most renowned hotel in all of Victoria is famous for more than one reason. Did you know that there is an urban legend claiming that several ghosts haunt the Empress hotel?
The hotel was built in 1908 and it has been said that spirits from this era have been spotted on numerous occasions. Several visitors and staff all claim that they have seen a thin man with a mustache who fits the description of the architect who designed the hotel as well as the Parliament buildings in Victoria. However this male ghost is not haunting the halls of the Empress alone. It has also been said that a female ghost haunts the 6th floor, she will knock on your door and you will open it to a perplexed woman in her pajamas.
I don’t know about you, but I think that is some pretty spooky stuff. Maybe while you guys are visiting Victoria you can take a walk through the Empress and see if you are able to spot any of our phantom friends.
