Spooktacular Hotel Stays This Halloween
Graveyards and Witches in Massachusetts
As one of the oldest cities in the US, Boston combines stunning fall foliage with a macabre gothic history. Stay in a Deluxe Room in Boston's historic Boxer Hotel (from $229.49 per night, a low by $39) and explore the famous Granary Burying Ground cemetery. The hotel is only a few minutes from Back Bay train station where a 30-minute train ride will get you to Salem, famous for its 17th century witch trials.
Haunted Mansions in New Orleans
One of the most distinct New Orleans hotels in the French Quarter, the Maison Dupuy (from $339.49 per night, low by $30) is the perfect place to explore the Big Easy's haunted mansions and voodoo witch doctors, or to party all night at a masquerade ball.
Haunted Mad House in Philadelphia
Book a 2-night stay at the Omni Hotel Independence Park (from $310.20, a low by $30) in Philadelphia and check out the terrifying PennHurst Haunted Asylum. About an hour's drive from the city, this building was a working asylum from 1906 until 1986, when it was shut down after allegations of patient experimentation and mistreatment were proven to be true.
Ghostly Gangsters in Las Vegas
Unleash your inner gangster in Sin City with this 3-night Halloween stay at the Flamingo (from $312.35, a low by $30). The ghost of Bugsy Siegel, the hotel's deceased former owner and a well-known gangster in his day, is said to haunt the Presidential Suite and pool between cut-throat games of blackjack.
