I was excited to stay at Hotel Savoy, being a total history geek. I was impressed with the first floor, especially the gorgeous windows and tile floors. I enjoyed reading the tidbits of history framed and put up in the first floor hallways, and I could just imagine enjoying a long weekend wearing 1920s clothes and taking pictures.
My room was #502. When I arrived, my friends and I joked about the hotel being haunted. I'm not sensitive to ghostly things, and was even hoping, "hey, maybe I'll finally have a ghost experience!"
Well, I got it. And that's the last time I'll ever wish for such a thing.
The room itself was dark and really rough around the edges. It was hot, not much air flow, but the bed was comfortable. The whole thing felt kindof creepy. By the end of my trip, I was dreading going back to the room. There was a lot of noise during the night - cars, horns, people yelling, the AC window units - so it was difficult to sleep - that and the angry ghost in the hallway next to the bed.
A note about the elevator - it does strange things. One of the days I stayed, it skipped floor 5 altogether, when going up, and would not come up to retrieve from any floor, when I needed to go down. I had to take the stairs down all day, though the elevator had no trouble going up to drop off at the various floors (except floor 5). It stopped its antics when I jokingly addressed it with, "hey creepy haunted elevator, come and get me." I clearly heard a little girl's voice say "thank you," followed by the elevator door opening - the first time it had done so all day. Of course, I was the only person around.
If you scare easily, don't stay here. I *don't* scare easily, and I don't think I will stay here again. If you're looking for a supernatural experience, room 502 is for you (505 is a permanent residence, so it's unavailable). The hotel staff won't say anything about it, as the owner doesn't want it to scare customers away. Just be aware.
