Ever since I was a little child I had been told the story about the lady who hung herself in the tower after getting married and having her husband disapear. So being myself for my Sixteenth birthday I wanted to do something special, something I would remember. A few days before my Birthday my mother and I went to the hotel to book two rooms. The front desk lady was very nice and took extra time with us to ensure that we got the rooms that we wanted. At first I wanted to stay in the Honeymoon Suite, where the lady who hung herself stayed, but someone else had already reserved the room.
Finally we selected The Spa Suite that came with a jacuzzi tub and the second most "haunted room" in the hotel. A couple days later we filed into the hotel to check in. The parking lot for the Hassyampa is FREE however it is on the OTHER side of the road.
Therefore it is quite hard to get across when there is traffic. There was extra difficulty because we were carrying birthday cake and such as well.
As soon as we made it into the hotel we groaned. The elevator isnt modern and cant run by itself. So we walked three flights of stairs with all of our stuff in our hands. Finally we made it to the Jacuzzi Suite and everyone began to settle down. I then decided that I would go to our second room and change my clothes. While I was in the bathroom changing the door handle began to shake and I could hear whispering through the vents. At that point I decided to head back to the main room. When I asked my mom if anyone had come to the other room she said no. The creepy thing is, I was all alone on the top floor of the hotel. The six rooms next to it were unoccupied. Scary right.
Little things like that continued to happen through out the night for example, the televison turning itself on and a pen moving from a chair to the bed. That night it was hard to get to sleep because of the bright red light of the Hassayampa sign outside kept us awake. I slept on the fold out couch which was not comfortable. The Hassayampa has NO pool or spa and doesnt have complimentary breakfast.
