No ghost sightings; maybe they were annoyed by the trains who lay-down on their horns every hour through the night. If you are looking for an old hotel this is one for you. Some remodeling was done, they tried to make it modern, yet to the period. It would have looked better without the textured ceilings which I don't believe are true to the period. A/C themostat didn't work so room was cold all night. Even in the off position, a/c continued to run; guess the ghosts like it cold. Tub was dirty; had to clean it before we could use it. Overall, not impressed for the money. Stay in a B&B, you'll get more for your money and a good breakfast. Do go to Lamache's restaurant on the first floor, first rate food and service well worth it.
