The Place: The Hotel Adolphus in Dallas, TX
The History: Named after Adolphus Busch, founder of the Anheuser-Busch company, the Hotel Adolphus opened its doors in 1912. This Baroque-style luxury hotel has sheltered more than a few notable guests, including Warren G. Harding, George H. W. Bush, Elizabeth II, and Prince Philip. However, it seems not all of the hotel’s guests have checked out.
The Haunting: The most famous spirit at the Hotel Adolphus is the lady in white, a ghost thought to belong to a young woman left at the altar during the Depression era. Legend has it the jilted bride was so upset by her fiancé’s change of heart that she hanged herself in the hotel’s grand ballroom on the 19th floor. Now, the bride-that-never-was roams the halls of the Adolphus, sobbing piteously and trailing after hotel guests.
