Four of us visited the Crescent Hotel on an extended New Year's Eve weekend mystery trip. Our foursome has done quite a bit of traveling together and always try to participate in a ghost tour while on our outings. Literally, from Seattle, WA to Boston, MA, I would consider this the best one. Though we took many pictures on the tour, we were not graced with the presence of a visible spirit. We did capture some orbs, both on the tour and in our room later that evening, and smelled the cherry pipe tobacco as we walked down the hallway later in the day.
Our guide, Tom, was excellent. He was not only knowledgeable but personable. We had a group ranging from young children to individuals in their late 60s. He was able to relate to all of them.
It is definitely worth your time to take this tour, whether or not you are actually staying at the Crescent. Of course, if you are lucky enough to stay there, it will mean even more.
